About The Lead Alchemists Agency

What we do…

There’s a staggering 3.5 billion searches on Google everyday. Now just think – is it feasible that a bunch of those are searches by your potential customers, looking to buy what you sell?

Our job is to put your business right in front of them, so you have a jet-stream of new sales leads…

How we do it…

To attract the visitors from online searches, your business needs to be on the first page of results. If you want to do well, you need to be in the top three results for a search. If you want to dominate your market, you need position #1.

Getting a high ranking is like strapping rockets to the ankles of your business and launching it into space. OK, maybe we’re getting a bit carried away now. But depending upon the services and products you sell, it can produce many hundreds – even thousands – of leads every month.

And the best news of all is that you can say goodbye to marketing that doesn’t work. No more cold-calling. No more expensive and useless Facebook ads. No more posting pics of your breakfast on Twitter for your networking buddies. No more writing awful blog posts. No more rushed articles added to your LinkedIn feed. No more hope-this-is-cool posts on Instagram. No more badgering your kids to make a viral TikTok video for you (it’s ok, we don’t judge…).



Our Story

Back in 2012, Paul was one of eight partners in a big accountancy practice. Every year they spent 6 figures on marketing with embarrassing results. Almost all new customers came from referrals.

As an experiment, Paul hired a business coach to see if he could get leads from the internet. The business coach that Paul hired was Lee, now his business partner at Lead Alchemists Agency.

Together, we grew Paul’s part of the business by 25% before Paul could see the full potential and staged a buyout to make his part of the business independent. 3 years later, having more than doubled it again, he sold it for what you’d get from winning the lottery.

But here’s what’s most interesting. When he set out, Paul had no idea this kind of result was possible. Growing the business to £1m seemed like a dream, let alone what he ultimately achieved with it.

Paul didn’t really think of himself as an entrepreneur. He was just a determined businessman who chose the right strategy to get results.

Who We Work With

We don’t employ an army of 18-year-olds who don’t know their arse from their elbow. You will work directly with us. We know how to get results, lead generation is what we do. When we need extra help, we call on specialists we’ve carefully vetted to be the best at what they do, using the methods we’ve field-tested to work.

Because you’ll be dealing directly with us, we build a partnership which is all about results. We get the best results when we’re enjoying ourselves, because our work is at it’s best.

If you like to have a bit of fun, and want your business to become a major player in your business sector, locally or nationally, we will help you to do that. If our service isn’t right for you, we’ll give you some options to try instead.

How many leads could I get?

Lee has a deserved reputation for the results his clients achieve, based on his unique approach to thinking about business. He has helped many of his clients to get more business using the same methods we use at The Lead Alchemists Agency. He is also the marketing strategist behind the explosive growth from startup to circa £15m turnover of a financial services business (Greenlight Credit Limited), which is now the #1 player in the logbook loans market.

Lee graduated with first-class honours in computer science in 1988 and has had a fascination with marketing ever since he can remember. His clients span a wide range of industries and his many successful clients have enjoyed sales growth of 6, 7 and 8 figures. He’ll happily share some of these success stories, if you’re curious.

Paul Marsden

Paul is the search engine optimisation superhero at The Lead Alchemists Agency. Trained and qualified as an accountant in his first career, he worked through the firm structure to become a senior partner at UHY Hacker Young in Letchworth, then discovered that being an entrepreneur was more lucrative and fun.

Paul has the characteristics you’d expect of an accountant. There’s no drama or hot air, just a quiet, steely and patient determination to get to the bottom of things. When dealing with the fine details of making websites rank at the top of the search results, he’s exactly the person you want on your side.

After all, it’s these qualities that led him to create a business that received four multi-million pound offers without ever advertising it for sale. If you want to achieve great things with quiet confidence, you want Paul fighting your corner.
