It is in your overall best interest to leave this toggled 'No' (though ultimately it is your decision.) On the surface it seems like an interesting idea to require potential new leads to enter a phone number. However, it will:
- Reduce the number of real phone numbers provided by new leads.The new lead registration prompts them to use their real number separately. This has been very successful overall on its own in getting real numbers.
- Reduce the number of new leads you generate by a significant amount (more than 50% on average.) In the age of privacy issues many are very leery of being required to enter information into an un-trusted source.
