LeadPoint, the world’s first lead exchange marketplace today reported that demand for leads has already started to increase in September.

“After the summer slowdown, it’s back to business and our lead buyers seem to be keen to get their autumns off to a flying start. Since the start of September we have already seen an increase in intermediaries logging back into their accounts and setting up their orders for the next few weeks,” said Matt Marshall, LeadPoint UK Head of New Business. “Now that the summer is over and the kids are back at school, consumers are going back online searching for financial products and services. Lead Generation is the best way to capture this huge pool of prospective customers.”

Lead Buyers can create a LeadPoint account for free and start buying leads within a matter of minutes after signing up.
