The Vision Program has directly brought 2 direct contracts that will bring $18,000 if they close. That is in 2 1/2 weeks of using it. Use the craigslist posting tool. I have several more active/hot leads. Has generated 38 leads in 2 1/2 weeks. I signed up for 15 leads. They are not great, but the self generated are going great.
When I first started in Real Estate in 2005 I was using Homegain. I got leads from Homegain and closed some deals, but I quickly came to the realization that I was working hard and giving away most of my commission checks to Homegain and my broker. I was also paying for ads with Google Adwords.
I joined up with a new broker this past March and I'm not paying for leads any more. Blogging is the way to go. I have my blog site ranked in the top 10 in google for my home town now and I'm starting to work on surrounding towns.
I had Market Leader for about 3 years when first started in RE, learned a lot from their agent forum, loved their drip campaigns, sold a few homes....maybe broke even. Now they have Vision System, no drip included, very good home updates mailed to clients on demand. It is the best system I have found to keep in touch. But now there is ListingBook.com which is offered free by our association and does exactly the same and maybe more, graphics are not so pretty but it is FREE. Try to join at ListingBook.com and the system will let you know if your association carries it. Realty Now has a good leads program, unlimited leads for 99 a month with no contract, and you pay them no commission split unless the home sales for over 150K.

We tried Market Leaders and agree with other comments below - overpriced and they oversell their quality of leads. They do nothing. We cancelled pretty quickly because it was obvious what was going on.
Antonio I will definetly try ListingBook and look into RealtyNow
