What is Canlead

Canlead is an ‘Opportunity Sharing’ platform and service where headhunters/ referrers can refer friends/ candidates to opportunities posted by customers to:

     – save money when hiring people or selling solutions

     – make money when referring candidates, business opportunities or job opportunities

     – get more of the right opportunities when seeking

Furthermore, Canlead allows you to build your social and professional ‘opportunity & referral’ network and community so that you can increase your net worth.

Canlead understands the value of human capital, social network and offers some of the best social networking features to let you monetise your social network your way.

Canlead does not employ any candidates, headhunters, agents or referrers directly instead they are considered independent agents or freelancers.

Common questions

Customer, Referrer/ Agent and Candidate – Who are they?

Customer: This is a username used by the App to mean a Service Provider, Employer and Customer who is providing the job or service opportunities.

Referrer: This is a username used by the App to mean a Headhunter, Referrer or Agent. They are freelancers or professionals with a valuable network of contacts, to take the lead in the referral process and refer the best candidate, product or service to their Customer.

Candidate: This is a username used by the App to mean anyone who is seeking for the opportunity be it a job, product or service.

Canlead is an open platform dealing with a variety of Customers where each Customer is verified prior to allowing them to use Canlead; this ensures that you, as a Headhunter/ Referrer/ Agent are only referring Candidates to the trusted Customer. Canlead is self-regulated via its rating and review process to ensure a good standard of trust is maintained.

The Canlead web-app can be accessed by entering the URL ‘‘ into your mobile device browser.

Is Canlead free to use?

Free for Headhunter/ Referrers/ Agent and Candidate.

Canlead takes 10% service fee for every successful referral transaction from the Customer.

Leader – Who is in a suitable position to make referrals?

These can be a variety of people with different roles. However, they will be similar to the types of roles described below, but this isn’t complete by any means:

Freelancer: who has an established professional network with whom they have personal relationships, but always seeking to monetise their social capital and grow their net worth.

Recruiter: who already provide services to clients and can readily add a range of valuable services to enhance those relationships, and grow their network larger and quicker, cost-effectively.

Sales Agent: who already provide solutions to clients and can readily add a range of valuable services to enhance those relationships, grow their network larger and quicker cost-effectively.

Business Consultant: who requires to develop new businesses and have existing clients who require additional products and services to address their business needs.

Account Manager: who has an established client base with whom they have strong relationships, but always looking to add additional value and being a useful “trusted advisor”.

Hiring Manager: who already have a team, and are hiring staff to fill new job vacancies or roles, but always looking for high-quality candidates at low hiring cost from their existing professional network.

Anyone: who has a network but looking to add value and monetise their social capital.

Key factors for referring job, product or service opportunities to customers or people you know?

By dealing with the Customer you already know you will be in a good position to understand their current needs and identify others, so you will be doing them a huge favour if you can introduce them to a Candidate they need.

Every referral you make that is accepted and becomes a signed business deal with the Customer, earns you a referral fee. One successful job referral a month for a complete year will earn you a minimum £12,000 each year, whereas product and service referrals will vary significantly but they could earn you anything from £1,000 to £100,000 a year.

Is there a limit on how many referrals I can submit?

There is no limit on the number of referrals you can submit, however, they must meet the rules set by the Customer, for example, time period, referral fees, quality, etc. You should check the Customer’s rules in the listings before making your referrals.

How does Canlead mitigate any risk?

When a referral is submitted, the Customer is notified in real-time. The Customer can choose to accept or decline a referral, but if the referral meets their criteria, the number rejected should be small. Acceptance of a referral establishes an obligation and you will see the notifications on your device immediately. Updates are communicated on the Canlead platform, so you know exactly what is happening and when.

We have a rating and review system to rank the Customer, Referrer and Candidate referral conversion rate and interaction with each other over the lifecycle of a referral. This ensures users take a professional approach, communicate and deliver their services to each other, although Canlead also has regular review meetings with the Customer and Referrer to ensure all aspects of the end to end process are working as planned and as agreed by the Canlead’s Terms of Service, Privacy Policy and Payment Terms of Service.

The referral cycle for many business opportunities is a few months and we are working on ways to continuously protect the Referrer’s interest and encourage Customers to provide regular updates. Referrers will be updated at each stage of the sales cycle via our platform.

How many referrals should I expect to be accepted?

Providing you make sure your referrals meet the criteria that the Customer has outlined then we expect your referrals to have a high acceptance rate, and typically 30% of referrals materialised into a cash reward. However, in circumstances where a referral does not materialise, please do not be disheartened as the Customer or Referrer will outline the reasons why this has been declined.

Is there any integration or API to an Application Tracking System?

No, as a social referral app it does not integrate to any applicant tracking system (ATS) to give greater freedom to the users. Canlead has been designed from the ground up to enable every employee to become a private recruiter. Employees already have a bank account with the company where payment transactions can take place.

How do referral chains work?

If there’s only one referrer in the chain, it’s easy – that referrer gets the entire reward, whether that person is your employee (in which case you pay them) or someone outside your company (in which case you can pay them via a credit card and then claim it as an expense).

If there are more than one Referrers working together, then the Referrer that referred the candidate that got hired will should split the reward.

Fees and payments

How much can I expect to earn?

The average referral fee is £1000 per successful job or service referral or a percentage of the deal value. You should typically expect to earn a minimum of £1000 for every successful referral you make; however, many of our referrers are earning considerably more in referral fees per successful referral – it depends on each Customer, but many pay more than £1000 referral fees to encourage you to find and refer suitable Candidates or services.

How do I get paid?

When a referral is converted to a signed business deal, your earned referral fees can be found in the “Payment Summary” area of the web-app and paid into your bank account. All payments are securely processed through Stripe, a payment processing company.

How do I set up a payment account?

Customers set up the pay-out debit or credit card account to transfer payments to Referrers.

Referrers set up the pay-in bank account to collect payments from Customers.

Which payment gateway is Canlead using?

The Stripe payment gateway has been integrated into the Canlead platform to give the best possible payment experience.
