Funny story. I actually sat next to a person on my last flight who does this for a living. She indicated they do business for large companies and small ones too.

They are paid on a lead basis. Average lead price is $5-$10. I don’t know many campaigns they run at a time, but I glanced at her laptop and it looked like at least 100 active campaigns.

There is big money in this as such people will pay to get investors.

I asked about her reason for travels. She was actually going to a conference for others in her field.
