What is lead generation?

Lead generation refers to the practice of asking inquiries from potential customers. Traditionally it has been happening in businesses where potential customers are being approached for comments while during shows, in shopping malls or via door to door campaigns. The customers would be given a card and the customers or potential customers would be required to fill that card and to give it back. The card will include contact information of the customers as well so that the company can give call back to the customer using their sales team if needed.

Time has changed and internet has taken over. This old tradition of lead generation has also been taken over by the internet and is on a slow and gradual decrease as you find more such forms on websites as compared to trade shows or shopping malls. There are other lead generations as well and the more lead generation method a company uses, the better it is for sale.

Marketing gurus rate lead generation as the first step towards making a sale. Lead generation is highly significant for any business as these leads would mature into sales later. If you have quality leads, chances are that you are about to get new business. Quality leads are those which will translate into sales. Every lead list will also contain a lot of junk that means leads which will never translate into sales and are useless. A good sales team would be the one having maximum number of quality leads and a lesser percentage of bad leads. So, if you have a 100 leads, you might only be able to make 15 appointments and out of those 15, only 5 may close the sale. If you have a target of let’s say 100 sales per month, you would need some 1500 leads to make it to your required target.

Now day’s businesses are using marketing companies for lead generation services. Businesses that are not interested in developing their own lead generation systems or cannot focus on them use marketing companies to work on their behalf and generate leads. A good marketing company is a must as now days with people on the internet, it is equally important for a business to be online and generate leads online as well. A good marketing company which can handle this for you would only help boost your sales. You would be asked by the marketing company to specify the type of leads that you would want to receive and would only forward you such leads so as to avoid bad leads and wastage of time.
