Where did the idea for BoldLeads come from?

I’ve been running lead generation campaigns for small businesses since I was in college. My Mom was a real estate broker and asked me to help generate some leads for her brokerage. The campaigns we ran worked so well, that we started offering it to other agents, and it took off from there.

When we first founded BoldLeads we focused only on the local real estate market. While this allowed us to fine­tune the system before expanding, I would have preferred to start on a much larger scale.
