ContactUs.com announced today the completion of $400,000 in seed financing, led by the Miami-based PeopleFund.
ContactUs.com, headquartered in Miami, operates a suite of online marketing tools called ContactUs for small businesses to create easy-to-configure contact forms and lead management solutions. The company is using the funding to build out the capabilities, features and UI of ContactUs, as well as to begin sales and marketing.
Founded in November 2012, ContactUs.com was funded initially by co-founders Brad Seiler and Howard Yeh. Seiler is the founder of boberdoo, an automation and distribution software company serving online lead generators. Yeh was previously co-founder and COO of BrokersWeb, a performance marketing company that was twice named to the Inc 500 list of fastest-growing companies before its sale in 2011. “The capabilities of the founders, along with ContactUs.com’s business model, convinced us of a big opportunity,” said Matias de Tezanos, founder of PeopleFund.
The company offers a free version of ContactUs for website, mobile and Facebook. It also has a WordPress contact form plugin as well as premium packages enabling businesses to generate phone leads, accept appointment requests, receive SMS notifications and qualify leads. “Our goal is to turn website “Contact Us” forms into better outlets for generating new customers,” said Seiler.
