How to Manually Add Leads

Modified on: 2014-11-05 09:28:19 -0600

SharpSpring enables you to manually add an individual lead without uploading them from a list or filling out a form on your website.

This is useful for when you meet somebody at a trade show or similar event. Once you have the individual's contact information, you can simply add the lead to SharpSpring. 

(Note: When you manually add a lead, that lead is not being tracked. The best way to begin tracking the lead's behavior is by sending him or her a one-off email in the "Contact Manager." Once the lead click on the link in the email, then SharpSpring can begin tracking that lead. More information on sending one-off emails, can be found here.)

​The following video will show you how to manually add leads in SharpSpring. However, if you prefer, a written step-by-step guide is available below the video for your convenience.
