What information is included in a 'lead list'?

We'll send over the lead's name, email and discovery platform (where we found them) as standard. No campaign is the same, so sometimes we have other fields, such as gender or location.

Are you GDPR compliant?

Yes, prospecting is GDPR compliant but you must follow some rules. Read more here

How do you deliver my lead lists?

We normally send over CSV files. We build our lists inside Airtable, but export them for easy upload to your favourite email software.

Who is on your team?

We have 2 full-time members right now - Tony Maguire and Lisa Hidds. We also work with contractors to fulfil our campaigns as we scale.

Can I get a free trial?

We don't offer free trials at the moment. This is due to the fact that we're a human-powered service, so free trials would massively stretch our resources.

Are your leads cold?

We define our leads as 'lukewarm' - we use prospecting to find leads that are most targeted to a business, so you'll always be reached out to people who are most likely to subscribe to your product.

What is your refund policy?

We have a 30-day money back, refund policy.

Will this work for us?

We hope so. If we don't believe that we'll be effective (e.g. companies with very long sales cycles, certain markets) we'll let you know and provide a full refund.

Can I cancel?

Yes, you can cancel your plan at any time. Login to cancel.

4 Reasons to avoid repackaging items yourself


Tempted to try your hand at customising your own packaging? Here are 4 common stumbling blocks that you might want to consider.

1. Minimum Order Quantities (MOQs)
MOQs often make purchasing custom packaging cost-prohibitive for dropshippers. The significant upfront cost of new packaging alongside various equipment requirements can be a risk for small businesses.


2. Its a hands on task
Dropshipping and custom packaging can seem like mutually exclusive concepts. As a dropshipper you enjoy the advantages of operating your business remotely. In order to create custom packaging, you need to be on site to handle their packing process.
 
3. Significant added expense
There are multiple aspects of creating custom packaging that will incur additional costs:

  • Upfront costs and MOQs on your packaging
  • Extra equipment - printers, tape, protective packing, boxes etc…
  • Additional shipping costs
  • Insurance requirements

4. Space
Purchasing custom packaging in bulk leads to further storage issues. Not only do you have to store your own products, but the materials and equipment required for your custom packaging too. You will also need a designated area for the repackaging process. Taking on the task of re-packaging your products will require extra organisation, time, space and maintenance.
