Quality lead generation is crucial to any sales or marketing campaign. The more quality leads you have, the more likely they are to engage with your business, ultimately resulting in more closed won deals. But lead generation is no easy feat. Sales reps can spend hundreds of hours prospecting for the right persona (and that doesn’t even include the additional time it takes to research the lead for contact and firmographic information). However, in today’s marketplace, it’s not enough to just generate a ton of leads. The leads you generate need to be the right persona, title and vertical in order to maximize the effectiveness of your sales and marketing campaigns.
