Leads as a service
Providing value with side projects.
Solve your customers’ problems
one side project at a time.
What if someone told you that there was a fast way to reach a lot of potential customers, and instead of interrupting them with ads you’d actually help them solve a problem. Intrigued? Meet side projects. Side projects are little websites or tools that help your target audience solving one specific problem they have. Instead of pushing with ads, you pull them in offering tremendous value by offering a solution.
The great thing about side projects is you only have to make them once. Once they’re made you can leave them alone and they’ll continue to bring in leads. Just make sure it stays online and is updated when necessary!
Long-term value, fast results
A good side project is a project that will have a long lifespan. The problem it solves today must still exist a year from now. And you’ll start solving problems as soon as you launch it.
Delight your target audience
Your customers see a lot of ads providing no value at all every single day. Can you imagine how they’ll feel when instead of interrupting them, you’ll actually help them with your side project? Spoiler alert: they’ll love your for it.
Ideally, your side project lives on a custom website, apart from your main activity. But to make sure potential leads can connect the dots, we’ll make sure the branding of your side project matches your main brand.
Side projects show you have enough empathy to envision the type of problems your (potential) customers might have. And on top of that it shows you really care about them, because you want to help them solve those problems.
Ideas are currency.
Execution is where the reward is.
Side Projects can be used in any department of your company as long as there is a clear goal of what the outcome should be.
A completely validated side project, ready to be your autonomous lead machine. With our custom made Side Project Framework we’ll make sure it’s the perfect side project for your customers, industry and your business.

Example Side Projects
Playmobil 1 2 3
Playmobil was looking for a way to reach young children’s parents, so what would be better than organizing a competitions for daycare centers? This is exactly what we did. The reasoning? If children play with Playmobil from a young age, they will continue their adventures with Playmobil. In 3 weeks, we gathered 89 000 Facebook signups and reached over 1 million website views. And the result? A happy daycare center with new toys to play with.
How much to make a board game
Cartamundi noticed they got a lot of quote requests to make board games, but writing out personal quotes took a lot of time. So we helped them to turn over the whole process. Now, people who are interested, just have to answer a couple of questions on howmuchtomakeaboardgame.com
and they get their personal quotation right away!
Scrapely is our agency side project. Sometimes, very rarely, growth marketers need to scrape something. To position ourselves as thought leaders in the Growth Hacking communities and to make the hiring process more inbound, we created our own scraping tool. Scrapely was used by over +2000 growth marketers and reach 20k+ marketers. We have discontinued the service due to GDPR, but it was an amazing ride.
