Leadguru interface

The main part of Leadguru is the Guru feed on the left side. Here are the leads that Leadguru’s algorithm found for you.

In the center, you may see the initial message from the active lead or previous dialog with this lead.

On the right side, you will see the Lead Info panel with additional information about the chosen lead.

You can learn more about the basic elements of Leaguru from our Quick guide.

Beginning of work

In order to start working with Leadguru, you need to have a positive credit balance. Credits are an internal measure of resources spent by Leadguru for finding prospects for you.

After creating an account, you will be able to purchase the required number of credits. Our manager will contact you within a few days.

In order to start communicating with the lead you are interested in, you must save it first. You can do this when your credit balance is positive.

Each lead has two Save buttons: in the upper right corner of the lead card and in the right lead panel.

The saved lead will be marked with a specific symbol. You can communicate with saved leads without restrictions, even if you have no credits. If the credit balance becomes exhausted or it is less than required, then you will not be able to save the lead.

If you just created an account, you don’t have any connected workspaces yet. So, in the beginning, all Leads that you can see in the Feed are Paid Leads. You may explore them and save the most promising ones for further communication. You can do this when your credit balance is positive. Paid lead saving costs 500 credits.
