Good business depends on great conversations, but email and other forms of business communication are stuck. They’re slow, disjointed, and not the way that consumers want to interact.

At Leadferno, we’re changing that. Our team is working to give your business faster, better, and more delightful communication.

Our story: Working with a small business should be easy

background text a business

During a recent Minnesota summer, our co-founder Aaron Weiche was considering buying a new boat. He exchanged emails with a local dealership over four days just to get a price quote. Each email wasted time: the whole exchange could have taken 15 minutes over text, but it took 96 hours over email. He didn’t buy that boat.

Trying to buy from a small business shouldn’t be a massive effort.

With decades of experience designing websites, marketing, and working with small businesses, he knew he could improve things. Buying from a small business should be quick and seamless. That snail’s-pace quote inspired him to make communication better through messaging.
