What is a lead?

A lead is a person who has expressed interest in a product or service that a company offers. Having a lead means that you already passed the first two steps of the sale cycle which are dreaded prospecting and cold-calling. Today, companies want to deal with warm leads rather than cold leads. A warm lead is one whom has already been introduced onto the product/service and has basic understanding. In some cases, the lead has already shown interest. This means that he/she is much more susceptible to listen to you and consider purchasing your offering since they may have already considered you as an option. When you contact a lead, you use the information collected to personalize the sales outreach efforts so that sales calls are personable and enjoyable for the client.
