Fake Leads

Ineligible names, wrong phone numbers, fake email addresses, etc.  None of these convert, and only waste your time and resources.

Confused Contacts

When you call someone who didn't fill out a form, they are generally confused and have no idea why you're calling.

Angry Emails

While a confused contact is the better option, some contacts respond angrily - demanding to know how you got their information.

Cost of Lead Generation Fraud & TCPA Violations

Stacks of money in front of analytics showing an increase

Wasted Marketing Dollars

Let's say you buy 100,000 leads for $20 CPL.

You've just spent $2M for 100,000 leads, but if 25% of those leads are bad, what are you actually getting?

75,000 leads for $37.50 CPL - $500,000 lost on marketing.

TCPA Violations

You've got $25,000 bad leads - but you don't know it.

Your call center reaches out, but because they're fraudulent, nobody picks up - it takes an average of 5 attempts to get anyone on the phone, and they didn't fill out the form.

Each time your call center reached out to a fraudulent lead violated TCPA - costing you $500-$1,500 per call/text.

Wasted Call Center Resources

The average cost of a call center is $25/hour.

The average time spent calling bad leads (that don't pick up)  isabout 10 minutes, and you have 25,000 bad leads.

You've lost over $100,000 on call center resources contacting bad leads.

Cost of an ad fraud solution - pennies on the dollar.

Benefit of an ad fraud solution - priceless.
