PHASE 7: LEAD GENERATION

Generate enough leads for the Sales team to exceed the revenue objectives.

 

Many companies generate most of their revenue from a lot of small accounts. Companies like this need a large and steady volume of leads to maintain this revenue. Marketing needs to capture and qualify these leads before sending to sales. Doing this effectively leads to high volumes of qualified leads which leads to more sales opportunities and revenue growth.
