Canlead is introducing the CAND Tokens to the next generation of the SHARING ECONOMY for the buyer, agent and seller in any market. Sharing and Earning is the most powerful and effective form of recruiting and marketing. The CAND Token connects opportunities with people, and rewards referrals and recommendations.

Why Canlead

At Canlead, we believe your net-worth is the value in every referral opportunity you share with your network.

A Community Built On Trust

Canlead began when we provided opportunities and referrals to our community of suppliers and customers looking for a deal, be it a job, product or service. Now, we provide an online service of customers (hosts), referrers (leaders) and friends (candidates) who can choose to create a Canlead user account so they may list their unique opportunities or refer their friends

A Trusted Opportunity and Referral Service

Canlead makes job, product, service opportunity sharing and referral easy, enjoyable and safe. We verify personal profiles and opportunity listings, maintain a smart messaging system so customers (hosts), referrers (leaders) and friends (candidates) can communicate with certainty, and manage a trusted platform to transfer and collect payments (tokens).

What is Canlead

Take control with a personalised online opportunity and referral app, built just for you.

Canlead Listings allows hosts to share job and service referral opportunities on the Canlead platform — all on a no win no fee basis.

Invite friends and build your network.

Canlead Network lets you invite your contacts to join Canlead and add them as connections — it’s that simple!

Canlead Explore allows leaders to search for the referral opportunities on the Canlead platform, so they can refer suitable candidates to their hosts in minutes.

How Canlead Works

The CAND Token is building an ecosystem for all content creators, consumers, recruiters, marketers, freelancers, employees and is not limited to any one company, app or entity.

What is Canlead?

Canlead is an ‘A.I Driven Opportunity and Referral’ platform and service where referrers (leaders) can refer friends (candidates) to opportunities posted by customers (hosts) to:

save money when hiring people or selling solutions

make money when referring candidates, business opportunities or job opportunities

get more of the right opportunities when seeking

At an advanced level, Canlead allows you to build your social and professional ‘opportunity & referral’ network and community so that you can increase your net-worth.

Canlead understands the value of human capital and social network, and offers some of the best social networking features to let you monetise your social network your way.

Canlead does not employ the candidates or leaders directly instead they are considered independent agents or freelancers.

Host, Leader and Candidate – Who are they?

Hosts – Service Providers, Recruiters and Marketers who are providing job and service opportunities.

Leaders/ Referrers – Freelancers and Professionals with valuable social capital taking the lead in the referral process to ensure the right candidates, products and services are recommended or referred.

Candidates – Anyone who are seeking for new or unique opportunities be it a job, product or service.

Canlead is an open platform dealing with a variety of Hosts where each Host is verified prior to allowing them to use Canlead; this ensures that you, as leaders/ referrers, are only referring the services of trusted Hosts. Canlead has a policy to verify listings from Hosts of the best quality, and self-regulated via the rating and review process to ensure standards are maintained.

How do I get the Canlead web-app?

The Canlead web-app can be accessed by entering the URL ‘‘ into your mobile device browser.

Is Canlead free to use?

Free for leaders/ referrers.

Free for candidates.

Canlead takes a 10% service fee for every successful referral transaction from the host.

Leader – Who is in a suitable position to make referrals?

These can be a variety of people with different roles. However, they will be similar to the types of roles described below, but this isn’t complete by any means:

Freelancers – who have an established professional network with whom they have personal relationships, but always seeking to monetize their social capital and grow their net-worth.

Recruiters – who already provide services to clients and can readily add a range of valuable services to enhance those relationships, and grow their network larger and quicker, cost effectively.

Sales Agents – who already provide solutions to clients and can readily add a range of valuable services to enhance those relationships, and grow their network larger and quicker, cost effectively.

Business Consultants – who require to develop new businesses and have existing clients who require additional products and services to address their business needs.

Account Managers – who have an established client base with whom they have strong relationships, but always looking to add additional value and being a useful “trusted advisor”.

Hiring Managers – who already have a team, and are hiring staff to fill new job vacancies or roles, but always looking for high quality candidates at low hiring cost from their existing professional network.

Anyone – who have a network but looking to add value and monetize their social capital.

Key factors for referring job, product and service opportunities to clients or people you know?

By dealing with clients you already know you will be in a good position to understand their current needs and identify others, so you will be doing them a huge favour, if you can introduce them to a Host they need.

Every referral you make that is accepted and becomes a signed business deal with the Host, earns you a referral fee. One successful job referral a month for a complete year will earn you a minimum £12,000 each year, whereas product and service referrals will varied significantly but they could earn you anything from £1,000 to £100,000 a year.

Is there a limit on how many referrals I can submit?

There is no limit on the number of referrals you can submit, however, they must meet the rules set by the Host for example, time period, referral fees, quality, etc. You should check the Host’s rules in the listings before making your referrals.

How does Canlead mitigate any risk?

When a referral is submitted, Hosts are notified in real-time. Hosts can choose to accept or decline a referral, but if the referral meets their criteria, the number rejected should be small. An acceptance of a referral establishes an obligation and you will see the notifications on your device immediately. Updates are communicated on the Canlead platform, so you know exactly what is happening and when.

We have a rating and review system to rank the Hosts, Referrers and Candidates referral conversion rate and interaction with a each other over the lifecycle of a referral. This ensures users take a professional approach, communicate and deliver their services to each other, although Canlead also has regular review meetings with the Hosts and Referrers to ensure all aspects of the end to end process are working as planned and as agreed by the Canlead’s Terms of Service, Privacy Policy and Payment Terms of Service.

The referral cycle for many business opportunities is a few months and we are working on ways to continuously protect the Referrer’s interest and encourage Hosts to provide regular updates. Referrers will be updated at each stage of the sales cycle via the our platform.

How many referrals should I expect to be accepted?

Providing you make sure your referrals meet the criteria that the Hosts have outlined then we expect your referrals to have a high acceptance rate, and typically 30% of referrals materialized into a cash reward. However, in circumstances where a referral does not materialize, please do not be disheartened as the Hosts or Referrers will outline the reasons to why this has been declined.

Is there any integration or API to an Application Tracking System?

No, as a social referral app it does not integrate to any applicant tracking system (ATS) to give greater freedom to the users. Canlead has been designed from the ground up to enable every employee to become a private recruiter. Employees already have a bank account with the company where payment transactions can take place.

How referral chains work

If there’s only one referrer in the chain, it’s easy – that referrer gets the entire reward, whether that person is your employee (in which case you pay them) or someone outside your company (in which case you can pay them via a credit card and then claim it as an expense).

If there’s more than one referrer, then the person who refers the candidate that gets hired receives half the reward, and the other half is split between the other referrers in the chain. Why split the reward this way? While we appreciate the efforts of everyone in the chain, we want to keep the incentive high for the person that keeps the chain going.

How much can I expect to earn?

The average referral fee is £1000 per successful job or service referral or a percentage of the deal value. You should typically expect to earn a minimum of £1000 for every successful referral you make; however, many of our referrers are earning considerably more in referral fees per successful referral – it depends on each Host, but many pay more than £1000 referral fees to encourage you to find and refer suitable candidates or services.

How do I get paid?

When a referral is converted to a signed business deal, your earned referral fees can be found in the “Payment Summary” area of the web-app, and paid into your bank account. All payments are securely processed through Stripe, a payment processing company.

How do I set up a payment account?

Hosts set up a payment payout account using debit or credit card to transfer payments to leaders/ referrers.

Leaders/ referrers set up a payment pay-in account using bank account to collect payments from hosts.

Which payment gateway is Canlead using?

Stripe payment gateway has been integrated to the Canlead platform to give the best possible payment experience.
