“LeadPoint has reached an impressive landmark by trading over 50,000 real-time leads in just one month. Since we launched in the summer of 2006 we have grown to become one of the biggest lead providers in the UK and we aim to carry on growing by signing up more lead buyers and launching more lead products,” said Nick Chapman, LeadPoint UK Managing Director. “In the current climate where every penny counts, companies are increasingly turning to lead providers to help them spend their marketing budgets more efficiently. LeadPoint has experienced such phenomenal growth because we don’t just sell leads; we work closely with all our customers to make lead generation work for them.”
