Our data at brodmin

How we collect reports.

To get businesses to report their unpaid invoices we use a range of processes to gather these reports, including but not limited to:

  • Content Marketing
  • Inbound Marketing
  • Social Media Marketing
  • Search Engine Optimisation
  • Search Engine Marketing/PPC
  • Account-Based Marketing (ABM) and Retargeting
  • Earned Media and PR
  • Referral Programmes
  • Industry Events

We are also looking for joint venture partners. If you work with other businesses, we’d love to hear from you.

We do not offer rewards or financial incentives for reports.

Our core product is what we call a “reporting unpaid invoices”. To get these reports with use marketing tactics, but never offer a reward or financial incentive to submit a report.

Instead, we focus on getting reports from businesses that are already convinced by the benefits of reporting unpaid invoices online and that to achieve a change in the late payment culture we all must all do our part.

Sources of our data: 100% user generated.

All our reports are submitted by real people with real business experiences. Reports come from entrepreneurs that issue invoices for their products and services.

We aim to get reports from around the globe, wherever businesses are not paying on time or worse not paid at all. We are quite fortunate in the UK to have regulation in place, not every country does.

We do not use 3rd party data.

We know that we could fill our directory with hundreds of thousands of business details for free. However, unlike other sites, we do not use 3rd party business data like Companies House API to create listings.

It will take a little longer to get the first 100, 000 reports and we look forward to the challenge.

Fake – false – inaccurate reports.

We aim to moderate all reports/submissions for accuracy. This is a manual review and not 100% accurate. If you spot any reports, you can ‘flag’ them for the site’s moderators.

The bigger we grow the more challenging moderating the directory and reports will become. We then may start relying on machine learning, API’s, and AI.

We have zero tolerance for fake reports and will remove them.
