How much does an online lead cost? The following data, provided by online lead generation firm Pontiflex, shows the average cost-per-lead across seven categories, compiled from a sample of 709 of Pontiflex’s partner Web sites for the year ending July 31, 2009.
The figures show the cost of two separate types of leads: basic and premium. Basic data includes information such as a user’s first name, last name, e-mail address and postal address, whereas premium fields include more detailed information such as telephone numbers, social networking usernames, and custom questions. Leads for the campaigns analyzed were non-incentivized, opt-in, and purchased on a cost-per-lead pricing model. The consumer sample included North American adults aged 18 and over. The data were gathered from campaigns that had a minimum spend of $5,000 during the one-year time period.
