Andy Royle is thrilled to announce that Leads2trade is up for an award at the Stockport Business Awards 2017. Leads 2 trade has been shortlisted in the Business of the year (£1-5m) category.

The awards take place on October 12 at a gala dinner celebration that will be attended by the great and good from the Manchester city region.

Judges at the event said that Leads2trade has been nominated due to its commitment to innovation; strong financial performance and diversification into growth markets.

Andy Royle, who set up the business with two co-founders over ten years ago comments: “This is actually the first time we’ve put ourselves forward for an award. As a business, we have been focused on doing the work, serving our customers and creating jobs; but we felt now was the time to achieve some recognition. It’s a vindication of our work here, that we have been nominated for this award.”

 On its work in the glass and glazing industry, Andy says that not standing still has been a key secret to success.

Andy Royle comments: We provide double qualified leads primarily for members operating across a number of home improvement and renewable markets. We have always quickly spotted growth markets and diversified into other markets such as solar, security and heating and plumbing.”

 “What’s more we’ve always been innovating our service lines – offering appointment booking for our members and more recently a hot key transfer service, where we can transfer the consumer directly through to their survey booking team, in postcodes of their choice. Standing still isn’t an option, as our members demand much more from us than this.”

Leads2trade generate thousands of leads per month for companies operating in the home improvement market; with the core sectors including windows, doors and conservatories, security, CCTV, solar, insulation and boiler replacement.

These leads are then double qualified by Leads2trade’s in-house call centre and passed onto members of its popular Compare Companies and Trusted Local Supplier network, in postcodes of their choice. They can receive leads instantly via email and SMS and use the company’s appointment booking and hot key transfer service.

They have just moved into new 3000 sq ft  modern spacious office suite to accommodate the recent growth, and the current company accounts also show that by the end of quarter one this year, the business will be up 21 per cent on the same period last year.
