LeadPoint, the world’s first lead exchange marketplace has teamed up with rapid learning company Knexus to educate on lead generation.

“According to the IAB, lead generation is one of the fastest growing sectors of online advertising,” said Nick Chapman, LeadPoint UK Managing Director. “Despite this trend, the majority of businesses in the UK still don’t know what lead generation is and how to use it. We are excited to have the opportunity to work with Knexus to help educate the market and put lead generation firmly on the marketing map.”

LeadPoint’s technology brings lead buyers and sellers together in a truly unbiased marketplace.
The platform allows buyers to source new business in real-time and enables sellers to more efficiently sell leads and to enter multiple verticals simultaneously. LeadPoint ensures a fair exchange by monitoring lead quality and customers themselves.

They work with a variety of industry experts to deliver targeted insights about digital marketing to some of the world's biggest companies such as B&Q, Dell, Cadburys, Norwich Union, Shire, GSK and Shell.

The lead generation webinars will cover a whole range of topics including how the industry works, how much do leads cost and the future of lead generation.
