    Hi all

    Just getting a Lead Gen page done on a site of mine and I must admit, I'm a bit green with this.

    What is required, or what should I reveal to the potential lead, that I'm not the entity that the end deal will be completed with?

    In other words; should I have a small disclaimer/paragraph stating that my entity is not the entity the deal will be done with, and I'm just a 'middle man'?

    Any thoughts and insights would be GREATLY appreciated.

    Thank you

    Would love to know what others are doing with this as well, as I'm looking at setting up my first lead gen site.

    On my first lead gen site I created back in 2003 was for finance lead generation. I just incorporated the broker details into everything.

    The about us page had:
    Then on the privacy page:
    I even went as far as having the privacy policy primarily about the broker because it was really them doing all the leg work.

    I can PM you a link if you like, I ended up selling the site to the broker and they ironically "Broke" it within a month or them letting their "Web guy" onto it. It remains broken to this day 7 years later (after the sale).

    If it's a finance or insurance related site there is certain information that will have to go into your terms and conditions to ensure you meet ASIC's referrer exemption requirements.

    My feeling is, regardless of whether it's finance related or otherwise, it's better to be upfront with people in terms of how the site operates and who is responsible for the service.
