Having Hot Leads on my team during lockdown was invaluable. … Off the back of the campaign, I’ve booked 18 appraisals, had 70 people sign up to my email database, found 2 people who wanted to discuss the purchase of a property, and have 72 people who have requested follow ups, 8 of whom are keen for appraisals. I could not have achieved this level of connection with traditional marketing methods in the same time period.
Neil Sharpe, Barfoot & Thompson Pukekohe.
Maryanne was able to generate an opportunity from every fourth or fifth call, which was an incredibly impressive conversion. … Loved using them for set campaigns and will definitely do so again.
Loren Bill, Treadway Equipped
In the last three months, Hot Leads has made 98 appointments for our agents. The meetings have resulted in two sales, and we’ve secured five new listings. Even if a prospect isn’t ready to list their property, we know they are going to and can nurture the relationship until they’re ready to commit. These are opportunities we wouldn’t have had otherwise. Our management teams are all very pleased with how the campaign is tracking, and Hot Leads has most definitely exceeded our expectations.
Anna Penny Moore, Harcourts Grenadier
Our Hot Leads’ consultant now probably knows more about sales in our business than 90% of the people who work here, which is a powerful thing. Using Hot Leads has been extremely cost effective because of the high value of each sale. Our ROI is much better than if we’d had to find, hire, and train an in-house lead generation resource.

Fusion5 provides ERP, CRM and HCM business applications into SMB and Enterprise organisations across Australia and New Zealand. Recently, Fusion5 hired Hot Leads to execute a telesales campaign in order to generate and drive new business leads specific to the ERP space. We found Lisa and her team extremely professional in their approach in understanding our requirements before the campaign kicked off, as well as the execution and follow-up. At all times we were in sync with Hot Leads on the expectations and co-ordination of next steps, as there was constant communication. The campaign has been a success to Fusion5.
Lisa Nicks, Fusion5 Ltd
We needed an outsourced partner – one who could professionally represent our business, knew our stuff and would roll up their sleeves and bring us the opportunities we knew we could win… Initially we were impressed with Hot Leads because Lisa thoroughly understood the sales and business process. Coupled with this, all the Hot Leads consultants are experienced sales professionals who know the NZ geographic and business landscape… By the end of the trial, we had some stats which confirmed telemarketing would provide us with a stream of qualified appointments… Hot Leads have now become an integral part of our marketing strategy. We run regular campaigns that provide us with regular appointments. We respect their service along with the consultative and intelligent approach they take to representing Netbyte.

Parnell Inc. had a representation of businesses and landlords down the main street. Our project was to expand the boundary to include all businesses and landlords in the wider Parnell community to form one Parnell business precinct…. we required a partner who not only completely understood our objectives, but one who would also provide reports and total visibility on the current status of calls and work seamlessly between our office and Election Services. Furthermore, it was important we had professionals calling on our behalf, who also knew the geographic landscape of our proposed expansion area…. At all times during the campaign we felt completely in the loop – for us it was like we’d added another internal team who hit the ground running. Hot Leads were completely professional, as well as being extremely flexible and available at any time for a discussion… Our campaign delivered a ballot count of 75.08% YES vote to expand the boundary, which was an outstanding result. We also received very positive feedback from the business community, complimenting us on a well-run campaign. Hot Leads were an integral part of this process and we were pleased we selected them to partner with us for this important project.

In 2015 The Cerebral Palsy Society of New Zealand joined a global fundraising campaign called Steptember. Designed to get people moving, the campaign challenges participants to walk 10,000 steps a day for 28 days in the month of September. Lisa and her team stood out from the get-go, however, the main reason I chose them was because their team didn’t sound like scripted robots on the phone, they are warm and friendly. They took the time to learn about Steptember, offered the best value and services that I was looking for, and ultimately turned it into a successful fundraising campaign. Hot Leads successfully signed up 35 corporations – raising over $10 of sponsorship for every $1 the Society invested. Along with this high rate of return on investment came a commitment from the Steptember corporates to support the Society again in 2016. Engaging with Hot Leads resulted in outstanding corporate participant numbers and exceeded our fundraising goals. The ROI for us has been excellent.

MB Security Ltd is a small family-run business providing residential, commercial and industrial security solutions. MBS already had good representation in South Auckland, but I wanted the opportunity to talk face to face with new prospects about how MBS could meet their particular, unique needs. I employed Hot Leads to design and execute a campaign in selected South Auckland suburbs to gain appointments where I could visit and discuss our company’s hands-on approach and our service and product offerings. I liked how simple it was to deal with Hot Leads, and the professional, friendly and kiwi manner in which their contractors represented our business. I was run off my feet attending appointments and delighted with the results, which delivered a substantial amount of new clients into the business. I now run regular appointment setting campaigns in different suburbs, so Hot Leads are succeeding in extending the MBS brand into other locations. Our marketing spend, compared to business won through Hot Leads’ campaigning, represents a powerful ROI. Hot Leads are now an integral part of our marketing drive.
Mark Bailey, Director, MB Security
Thanks for your work over the past few weeks. I’ll have to be honest, I am blown away by the results your team have generated. In fact, you have overworked me! I’ll need to be better prepared next time! I am stoked, not only because of the jobs we got out of our campaign, but also the quality of work which has provided us with the potential for growth.
Scott Kelso, Moonsuit Ltd
Hot Leads are quick, efficient and professional in taking our campaigns to market and we have been pleasantly surprised at the response and results achieved using Hot Leads and their industry targeted approach.
Dave Watson, Corporate Rentals Ltd, Surplus Brokers Ltd, Surplus Brokers Australia Pty Ltd
As a marketing consultant I’m aware of the importance of following up on a direct mail but have always been dubious of engaging with an outbound call centre for help. This time with a small sales team, I needed it, and called on Hot Leads. They are business professionals, results driven, and have the process down pat. I am thrilled with the results and will definitely be using them again!
Kelly Fry, Strategic Marketing Consultant
We have employed the services of Hot Leads to market our Company and have been extremely happy with the services Lisa and her team have provided. We have had an overwhelming response in enquiries as a direct result of Hot Leads. The advice Lisa has offered us in regards to design has been outstanding, having put together a tailor-made package, designed specifically for our needs, and our target market.
James Jackson, Torque Group Ltd
We would have no problem in recommending Hot Leads to other companies as a beneficial marketing tool. Hot Leads provided a great and effective Christmas campaign for 2008. Coupled with friendly and efficient service, I would highly recommend Hot Leads to everyone. We’ll be back. Thanks Lisa!
Tracey Johnson, Prego Gifts Ltd
With our internal sales team committed to another sales directive, we employed the services of Hot Leads to complete a telemarketing project to a selection of our existing customers for a new software upgrade release. We appreciated that Lisa gave her full attention to understanding our requirements and objectives and learnt a significant amount about our products, service and company culture to be able to engage with our customers on a familiar premise. We received an excellent uptake on the offer and were similarly impressed with the thorough approach and accuracy in the delivery of leads back to our company. Our ROI was more than satisfactory and we would therefore not hesitate to recommend the Hot Leads telemarketing service.
Sven Martin, Savio Solutions Ltd
I was pleased to have used Hot Leads for our recent Business Association voting campaign. Lisa and her team were very professional, provided clear and timely feedback and were a pleasure to work with. Their efforts definitely made a difference.

I was drawn to Hot Leads for a number of reasons.

The whole process was very professional. We worked through our value proposition and provided information on why a plumber would want to join our organisation. We used Skype to meet the Hot Leads team and were impressed with their maturity, experience and organised approach. And we felt very confident that they’d represent our brand well on the phone. It would be fair to say that we were very surprised by the level of engagement. Engaging with Hot Leads is the best thing we did. If we’d tried to do the project internally, we’d never have got that level of knowledge or engagement. It would have been impossible. I highly recommend anyone to use Hot Leads. They’re honestly top class.
Margaret Dawson, Master Plumbers
I wanted to thank you and Maryanne for a very professional service and one I would recommend to others looking for a great telemarketing campaign. Marryanne was brilliant and her communication skills outstanding, she quickly understood our brand and used her skills to sell our Info nights. She called me twice with updates and filled me in on the calls made. Her very detailed notes on each call were really helpful and of great assistance when I followed them up. A huge thank you and well done Team Hot Leads
Mike Geddes, Franchise Development Manager, Poolwerx
I’ve known other agents who have been to different leads companies, ended up paying way more with less results – no reports like Hot Leads provide. The written reports are great… My colleagues are excited that I’m busy appraising even though they aren’t!
Vangie Philpot, Agent for LJ Hooker, Huntly
“We were pleasantly surprised by how many of our donors appreciated a phone call from us. The Hot Leads team completed warm and professional calls that took some pressure off our team. Because of the groundwork they did with their calls, we were able to retain or increase our donor’s contributions as well as update their details for our system.
Francesca Powell, Marketing Manager, Child Cancer Foundation
We wanted to deliver value to our huge base of exporters and business connections by helping them register for our digital platform. … Because of who we are and the connections we have, we wanted to work with a customer-centric brand, and that is exactly what Hot Leads delivered for us.
Emma Lewis, New Zealand Trade & Enterprise
We quadrupled the number of leads for this particular referrer, providing us with a really healthy pipeline to start reaching out to.
Carla Gilmour, BWRS
From my perspective, the difference between using Hot Leads and our results from the previous two to three years is like comparing night and day.
Brendan Drury, Orbit Travel
The results were great. We had over 150 organisations taking part, which meant we were able to speak to thousands more people about being breast aware. We also raised more money and we had more organisations signed up than in previous years.
Nicky Sinclair-Perkins, Breast Cancer Foundation
Their consultant proved to be extremely good. She knew the right questions to ask and the right information to gather. She added valuable information to our database and encouraged 50 additional people on our list to sign up for our marketing emails. We’d been struggling to grow our email reach, so what she achieved was superb.
Steve Davis, Team Davis
They got everything done in the time we agreed, and within budget. I believe they charge a fair price for their services and they are extremely professional. They’re very good with their communications: everything was set out very clearly before the project started, and their follow-through has been excellent.
Rebecca Jones, United Flower Growers
They effectively extended our network. … We’ve been pleased to give them further projects in recognition of their great work. … We’d highly recommend their services to anyone who asked.
