Today, I'm doing a review of the service I was introduced to called, "find that lead," which is located at www.FindThatLead.com. They reached out to me to promote their site. I am not being paid for this. I want to be clear that I'm not being paid. You can login using Google, Facebook and a few other services. Once you login, you click, "Open Dashboard" In the upper right. They offer different types of plans and gave me a username and password for what they call the AppSumo Plan. This allows me to do 1500 searches per month. There is an API key that is involved to get that plan.

I want to point out a part of the service that I think is really the best part of it. The rest I did not really care for. The part I like is called Prospector.If you click on Prospector, you will be asked to start a new list. Click on that and you can search by location, company name, industry, Company size, job title, And skills.

Let's say I want to search for someone from a particular location Who works for a firm of a certain size and has the title of CEO. Let's say we do the location of New York. You can do multiple locations like Jersey City. They are not working by ZIP Code. They are working by specific cities. So in that regard, it is not ideal. For example, if I was looking for someone in the area of New York, you pretty much need to pick Particular towns that they might be located In. As we all know, there are many sites in suburban locations out there. Thus, we don't know if it will search within a certain number of miles of that city.

Let's say you're in executive and are looking for a program manager, You type in the title, press continue, What company sizes are you looking for? This is the New York area, so there a lot of people who fit this profile. You press continue. This is the search string but you can press continue And then, from there, one it. It may initially tell you that it will take some time to run the search.

Once it runs, It will provide you with CEOs a particular corporations that I can contact. It hasn't generated an email address for them but I'm going to show you what it does because I think it is an interesting little feature.So let's look at, "Confidence Level," . . . "Data has not been downloaded yet."What it allows you to do is, "View The Person" What will tell me is that this person has an 85% chance of being the CEO of GFI Capital.

I think it is a nice little feature. I know that this search has 19 screens of information about people. While you're doing searches, this is a service that has nice little features about it. This is a nice little feature that will help you generate information about a lot of people.
