"We decided to reexamine crowdsourcing, and realized that we could easily add a crowdsourcing option for the users that it works for, and still keep our current 100% free model that frees most users from the burden of crowdsourcing."

LeadFerret, the world's first 100% free B2B database with complete information, including email addresses and social media links, is now adding a crowdsourcing option.
Nothing about the current free model, that allows users to access unlimited records completely free of charge will change; LeadFerret will simply add a crowdsourcing option for those users who prefer it. In fact, by adding this option, LeadFerret will actually only improve the completely free option by making more data available.
LeadFerret Co-Founder Forest Cassidy explains the logic behind adding a crowdsourcing option: "From conception, we've always been aware of the issues that users have had with other crowdsourcing sites. First, most users really don't want to upload their personal contact list to be able to get new data. Second, most users quickly run out of contacts to upload, and are then forced to pull out their credit card if they want more. However, after numerous inquiries and requests from our users, we decided to reexamine crowdsourcing, and realized that we could easily add a crowdsourcing option for the users that it works for, and still keep our current 100% free model that liberates most users from the burden of crowdsourcing."
While LeadFerret works to add self-service crowdsourcing tools to the site, users who are interested in participating in this program are encouraged to email info(at)leadferret(dot)com to get started right away. Once the self-service tools are added, users will be able to upload data in exchange for points that can be used to download data using LeadFerret's existing points system.
