Who's behind this?
LeadVine was founded by two guys who were originally competitors. Allan, founder of WageExchange.com, contacted his competitor, Ben, founder of SalaryScout.com, about working together to start LeadVine. Ben liked the idea and the two competitors quickly became allies.
How was LeadVine started?
The concept behind LeadVine was started around 2002, after Allan was tired of unsuccessful cold calling for the Accounting temp agency he started. Allan's business partner, Bobby, got business through contacts who had information about a company who needed accounting help. Allan and Bobby got the job and paid their contact a 20% finders fee. Bobby eventually got more business when he met a contact at a barbeque. Again Allan and Bobby got the client and paid their contact 10% finders fee. They were able to contact the right people who had the right information at the right time. All together Bobby and Allan gave out more than $25,000 in finders fees, which was easy money for their contacts. Allan thought there could be a business model behind this but couldn't think of the specifics to facilitate transactions.
Four years later, after the popularity of Web 2.0, Allan put the business model together and contacted Ben, with the hopes of helping companies easily find qualified sales leads and helping people with information make easy money.
