CEO Richard Beedon extoles benefits of crowdsourcing leads in today's Yahoo, Small Business Advisor. Some of these benefits?
Beedon writes, "Reaching out to the crowds of people that know and trust you makes good business sense. They are very connected, have a loud and trusted voice, and they can reach their friends easily and often on your behalf."
By utilizing the latest in social marketing software and technology, business leaders can mobilize this channel by creating and leveraging their social relationships to generate great leads and drive new business.

At Amplifinity we work hard. We stay late. We come in early. We eat lunch at our desks. We laugh a lot. Who doesn't appreciate the occasional proof that it's all worth it? This year, Amplifinity got our proof. The Amplifinity team is on a collective mission to create the most powerful brand advocacy software platform on the market - one that gives our clients the power to acquire highly qualified customers by soliciting referrals, testimonials and endorsements from their customers, employees and influencers.
I recently started reading the biography of Steve Jobs, written by I admire Jobs and find his work ethic inspiring (a little daunting, ok, but inspiring nonetheless). Jobs was incomprehensibly successful as an entrepreneur and inventor because of some basic principles to which he held fast. Three of these principles resonated with me as the same that keeps Amplifinity growing and becoming better every day:
1) Do what you love
This may seem trite, but if you truly enjoy what you do, chances are good you're going to succeed. If you are passionate about your work and the work you do for those who use and buy your products, it's almost impossible to fail.
2) Get your message down and make sure you deliver on that message.
It's possible that Steve Jobs did this better than any other brand leader out there. Your message can sell an "experience" or come across as lofty or too good to be true, and that's ok if your product is as good as the experience you're selling.
We've all been sold on products and been disappointed when the real-deal is far from what we were "promised." Make your message cool, creative, clever; but make sure your product delivers.
3) Be indefatigable.
There's not one brand out there that hasn't looked defeat in the eye and wanted to cower in a corner. But the good ones don't cower or relent. They don't listen to naysayers. Jobs had plenty of people who doubted him. The technology arena is a crowded space with lots of really smart people trying to come out on top. If you adhere to #1 and #2 above, tireless representation of your cause will come easy - well, easier at least. But you've got to have a pretty impressive constitution to make that happen.
Jobs stands as a true pioneer - even despite the fact that he was often maligned or criticized for his insatiable quest for perfection.
At Amplifinity, the energy and dedication not only to perfecting our product but to our clients' success has resulted in significant growth of our staff, our client roster, our clients' revenue and the AMP Platform.
So, in the words of Steve Jobs, the team at Amplifinity has "the sense that right now is one of those moments when we are influencing the future."
