Leadgen blog

Most recently, Jay published an amazing presentation “You Give Leads A Bad Name” on leadgen dynamics including topics like:

  • ad creative
  • user flows
  • mobile services
  • leadgen
  • scammy tactics
  • … and finally, the evolution of leadgen into more sophisticated sites (that give users value)

Watch for the slides on Mint.com and Billshrink.com, in particular, which are valley darlings (and are mentioned very favorably).
