How quickly do I get the leads? (top)
Every UK lead that we send to the mortgage adviser is forwarded within seconds of the consumer that is interested in mortgage/life insurance advice, completing an online questionnaire. The leads are distributed automatically by email & text via our automated mortgage lead distribution system, so your potential customers still have their requirements foremost in their mind when you contact them.
What about conversion rates? (top)
Our mortgage and Life Insurance leads are of the highest quality and have a proven conversion rate to written business, obviously this varies according to the quality of the mortgage adviser, but anyone would have to agree that even a 25% to 30% conversion rate is outstanding for any lead.
What's the price? (top)
We operate a simple pricing structure - The prices range from £20.00 to £47.00 per lead. No loss of valuable sales time in checking if your bids are up to date! We believe this is not only the cheapest you will find but the quality will also be superior. If you ever see leads cheaper please tell us. Volume discounts apply for purchases over 50 leads.
How do I pay? (top)
We take payment via debit/credit card or via BACS, all payment are payable upfront.
Is there a minimum purchase? (top)
Yes, in order to get the best from the leads we believe that you must be regularly buying leads., We ask that you buy our mixed bag mortgage leads in batches of 10 and life leads in batches of 5, you are not obligated to take another batch, but we do advise that you do take leads on a regular basis, this will enable you to start receiving your pipeline and continuity of business.
What if I happen to get a 'Bogus' lead? (top)
We send all leads to you 'In good faith' but occasionally, due to the nature of the Internet, you may receive a lead that falls short of our high standards. We operate a very simple to understand replacement policy. We are a fair company. We will refund leads that we can test to be incorrect.

Yes you can, just give us a call on 0845 672 6000 or e-mail on email@example.com with the date to restart your leads.
Are we tied to you if we sign up? (top)
No - Advisers opt to buy leads upfront which means they do not need to enter into a contact with us. We generally advise that advisers do take more then one batch of leads, as this will help them to start receiving a pipeline and with the rollover of leads, they will start to see the continuity of business.
Does anyone else receive the same mortgage leads? (top)
Every lead that we generate is only sent to one mortgage broker and one mortgage broker alone –Totally exclusive and our leads are not resold.

We would be delighted to provide a replacement lead:

If you receive more than one enquiry from the same customer within 5 calendar days this may be submitted for assessment as a duplicate lead.

MCOB 3.7.3 - This rule bans firms from making 'unsolicited real time promotions' (cold-calling), unless they have an established existing customer relationship with a consumer.
As long as the consumer has expressed an interest in receiving information or advice on reviewing his mortgage (or other qualifying credit) arrangements from a named firm, and the firm only contacts him for precisely that purpose, the call may properly be described as ‘solicited’. The key issue to remember is that for the promotion to be considered ‘solicited’ it must meet the 'express request' requirement of MCOB 3.7.1R(2)(b). MCOB 3.7.1R(2)(b)(b) takes place in response to an express request from the recipient of the qualifying credit promotion
