Capture Leads from Any Website with LeadSquared Widgets

1. Feature Overview

An LSQ widget acts as a “lead magnet”. An example of a lead magnet is a special deal offered to customers in exchange for their contact details. It can be a discount code, webinar, white paper, ebook, template, inquiry form, or another resource.

With LeadSquared, you can create and embed an LSQ Widget on your web page or landing page and start capturing leads in minutes.

Once the leads are captured, you can push them further down your sales funnel. For example, you can redirect the leads to a LeadSquared Application Portal, email them a welcome kit, or schedule a sales call.
