The Importance of Lead Generation for a Business

The growth and success of a business depends on its ability to attract new customers. While a business can smooth sail along if it has excellent customer retention, it cannot reach its full potential and thrive without a bank of new customers to fuel growth. And so a company will look to lead generation methods to generate new sales leads.

Lead generation is all about finding the right target groups and the individuals within these. If a business has a good quality process, it will make it easier to find the right customer. However many companies still to this day have poor lead generations strategies and many fail to generate good quality leads as they don’t have the correct tools in place. Generally speaking, they tend to lack either some or all of the following:

  • A process for qualifying/disqualifying leads
  • A process to convert the qualifying leads
  • Buyer personas mapped out correctly

Finding potential customers and successfully reaching them is a long and difficult process, and so it is no wonder that many companies get it wrong. The process combines the various marketing actions that businesses can take to reach these potential customers. These marketing actions can either be technology-based which refers to database collection and using other internet based computer programs, or else they can be people-based which refers to direct contact through telemarketing or events. Which a business uses is up to them as both methods of lead generation provide the same advantages for a business:

  1. Enables Business Growth – Lead generation drives traffic to a website, thus helping acquire new customers which in turn increases a business’ sales and revenue. Having increased revenue ensures that a business is able to achieve growth.
  2. Increases Efficiency – Automated lead generation software ensures outbound marketing is more efficient. Having the appropriate technology not only frees up time that would otherwise be wasted, but it is also more cost efficient as it enables both marketing and sales to work in unison, thus closing any communication gaps that might have previously been problematic.
  3. Awards Competitive Advantage – Companies that use lead generation are always a step ahead of their competition. If they can acquire new customers and do it more cost and time efficient than competitors, well then their business has the market advantage.

Having a lead generation specialist will help a business a lot in both generating new leads, and working with the ones it already has. A lead generation specialist can offer a lot of good services but for most businesses, particularly B2B, the most important thing is to generate new leads from outbound telemarketing.
