Leadbay launches free bidding alerts

Leadbay is launching a free bidding alert service to allow brokers to target clients more effectively.

Brokers can now be alerted to when leads fall to low prices in specific areas, or when there is a surge of demand in a particular product area such as remortgages or first-time buyers.

Grant Stevens, managing director of Leadbay, says: “Smaller adviser firms cannot always monitor the bidding on Leadbay to find out when prices are lowest so previously may have missed out getting new business at the lowest cost.

“Bidding alerts will give brokers the insider information that they need to get the clients they want with the opportunity to make a greater return on their investment.”
