What is Lead Generation?

Lead generation is all about bringing people into your sales funnel.

Leadsquared has a descriptive definition of a lead: “In simple terms, a lead is an individual or organization with an interest in what you are selling. The interest is expressed by sharing contact information, like an email ID, a phone number, or even a social media handle.”

Before generating leads, you have to know:

  • What your target audience is interested in
  • Which products you could sell to them
  • What their pain points are

It’s all about lead magnets, video marketing, email opt-ins, and paid ad campaigns that are designed to get potential customers into your sales funnel.

It’s easy to track and you can collect thousands of different pieces of data.

The most popular information marketers gather from leads initially is an email address and typically a name. You can break lead generation into two categories: inbound and outbound.

In this article, we will talk about inbound strategies.
