The stats report now shows you where the leads from your site are generated from.
As a business owner it is important for you to understand how your clients communicate with you. In an effort to assist you with this challenge we adapted our monthly statistics report. Under the heading “Top lead sources on your website” you will now see the most effective leads from all active online forms, newsletter signups, enquiries from e-commerce systems and product systems.

Rather partner with a supplier who will add value to your company.
