Networkers have a justified fear of being played out of their rightful cut of a deal and it's natural the same fear gets voiced in the online space.In addition to the lost commission is the sense of wasted effort, the time spent prospecting a lead and sharing it with a business. This fear is justified and we have detailed below the mechanisms on carrotleads to ensure promises are kept.
1. We have contractual legal agreements in place with businesses using our platform.
If you are aware of a business not keeping its promise, please bring it to our attention on the platform. Alternatively, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Based on individual cases, we can explore legal avenues to persuade the errant business to correct its ways. This may include but not limited to
a. a polite communication reminding them of their moral and legal obligations,
b. a legal notice to keep their obligations
c. filing of a case in judicial court to claim damages
Alternatively, we are willing to provide documentary evidence to support any legal action undertaken by the networker in his/her individual capacity.
2. Protection offered by our Ratings & Review process
3. Safety via Anonymity
When an anonymous referral is provided, the business is deprived of this information. A business may have self-referred the lead as a networker( to access the rewards as a discount ) or a party close to the business action may have referred the lead.
Businesses acting in bad faith risk success in the specific business opportunity in addition to unknown risks to their reputation in the wider market.
Networkers can unmask their identity on success of a lead.
4. Self interest
The biggest reason for businesses to keep their promises though is self-interest. Our clients use carrotleads to grow and wish to encourage more quality leads. The best way to do so is to convert qualified leads and keep their promises. More quality leads means less cold calls, more focus on closing deals and working on their core business. All this translates to improved growth and happy businesses.
We are yet to come across a client not keeping their promises or even hint at it. On the contrary our clients have shown a willingness to pay a goodwill fee for qualified leads even when they are not successful in closing a deal.
In a nutshell, we have systems in place that encourage businesses to do the right thing. So please relax and continue sharing publicly available information as leads.
