Canlead is an ‘opportunity-sharing’ platform that allows everyone to become a head-hunter or property-agent and earn commissions. We aim to disrupt the business service industry like how Uber and Airbnb disrupted the ‘ride-sharing’ and ‘accommodation-sharing’ industry.
The first opportunity & referral board where you can search for job, product and service opportunities
The first reputation portal where you can view candidate, head-hunter or property-agent and customer ratings
The first one-click referral service that refers candidates, not resumes, with greater certainty and speed
What Is Canlead
Canlead makes job, product and service opportunity sharing easy, enjoyable and safe. We verify personal profiles and opportunity listings, maintain a smart messaging system so customers (Hosts), head-hunter/ agent (Leaders) and friends (Candidates) can communicate with certainty, and manage a trusted platform to transfer and collect payments (tokens).
Take control with a personalised app, built just for you.

How Canlead Works
Canlead incentivises people to refer and earn from any opportunity they may find online – it connects opportunities with users, and rewards successful referrals.
The Canlead Sharing Economy model support intermediary business services such as recruitment, marketing, real estate, travel and offers new features over the Airbnb Sharing Economy model.
There is a three-sided market e.g. customer, head-hunter/ agent and candidate lead to more users and opportunities which lead to more revenue, and so on…
There are three user roles or profiles e.g. customer, head-hunter/ agent and candidate working together on the referral opportunity.
There is a three-way user rating system where all users rate each other to improve trust for greater success.
The concept is simple 1) the customer posts a job or service opportunity on the Canlead board 2) the head-hunter/ agent finds and refers the opportunity to their friends/ candidates 3) the customer pays the referral fee to the head-hunter/ agent.
The use cases show that when Candidates are seeking new job opportunities they may also seek other value-add services such as property rental, accounting and training on the same platform. Canlead will eventually provide an opportunity-sharing and referral marketplace encompassing multiple products and services.
Problems Canlead Is Solving
Lack of incentives to share quality opportunities and build long term relationships.
Lack of certainty if the opportunity, candidate, head-hunter/ agent and customer is reliable.
No universal opportunity and referral board where users can share and earn from referrals.
No candidate, head-hunter/ agent and customer de-facto rating and review portal.
What is Canlead
Canlead is an ‘A.I Driven Opportunity and Referral’ platform and service where referrers (leaders) can refer friends (candidates) to opportunities posted by customers (hosts) 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 and social network, and offers some of the best social networking features to let you monetise your social network your way.
Canlead does not employ the candidates or leaders directly instead they are considered independent agents or freelancers.
Host, Leader and Candidate – Who are they?
Hosts – Service Providers, Recruiters and Marketers who are providing job and service opportunities.
Leaders/ Referrers – Freelancers and Professionals with valuable social capital taking the lead in the referral process to ensure the right candidates, products and services are recommended or referred.
Candidates – Anyone who are seeking for new or unique opportunities be it a job, product or service.
Canlead is an open platform dealing with a variety of Hosts where each Host is verified prior to allowing them to use Canlead; this ensures that you, as leaders/ referrers, are only referring the services of trusted Hosts. Canlead has a policy to verify listings from Hosts of the best quality, and self-regulated via the rating and review process to ensure standards are maintained.

Free for leaders/ referrers.

Canlead takes a 10% service fee for every successful referral transaction from the host.
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:
Freelancers – who have an established professional network with whom they have personal relationships, but always seeking to monetize their social capital and grow their net-worth.
Recruiters – 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 Agents – who already provide solutions to clients and can readily add a range of valuable services to enhance those relationships, and grow their network larger and quicker, cost effectively.
Business Consultants – who require to develop new businesses and have existing clients who require additional products and services to address their business needs.
Account Managers – who have an established client base with whom they have strong relationships, but always looking to add additional value and being a useful “trusted advisor”.
Hiring Managers – 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 have a network but looking to add value and monetize their social capital.
Key factors for referring job, product and service opportunities to clients or people you know?
By dealing with clients 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 Host they need.
Every referral you make that is accepted and becomes a signed business deal with the Host, 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 varied 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 Host for example, time period, referral fees, quality, etc. You should check the Host’s rules in the listings before making your referrals.
How does Canlead mitigate any risk?
When a referral is submitted, Hosts are notified in real-time. Hosts can choose to accept or decline a referral, but if the referral meets their criteria, the number rejected should be small. An 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.
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 Hosts to provide regular updates. Referrers will be updated at each stage of the sales cycle via the our platform.
How many referrals should I expect to be accepted?
Providing you make sure your referrals meet the criteria that the Hosts have outlined then we expect your referrals to have a high acceptance rate, and typically 30% of referrals materialized into a cash reward. However, in circumstances where a referral does not materialize, please do not be disheartened as the Hosts or Referrers will outline the reasons to 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 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’s more than one referrer, then the person who refers the candidate that gets hired receives half the reward, and the other half is split between the other referrers in the chain. Why split the reward this way? While we appreciate the efforts of everyone in the chain, we want to keep the incentive high for the person that keeps the chain going.
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 Host, 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?
Hosts set up the pay-out debit or credit card account to transfer payments to leaders/ referrers.
Leaders/ referrers set up the pay-in bank account to collect payments from hosts.
Which payment gateway is Canlead using?
Stripe payment gateway has been integrated to the Canlead platform to give the best possible payment experience.
