- Define lead: In a true sense a qualified lead is someone that has (a) budget, (b) timeline, (c) need and (d) authority. Building a list of qualified contacts and companies that fit your definition of a lead is the 1st step in your technology sales leads generation program. Be clear about what you are going after.
- Define goals for each project: Like “generate a list of 500 contacts that are potential decision makers of enterprise storage technologies in global 1000 companies” or “ Identify companies that have deployed a marketing automation system and have an email volume of 10,000 a month”.
- Define Process and techniques: Choose what is likely to yield best results. Telemarketing, Webinars, Internet based research, Surveys etc.
- Estimate: Make a ballpark estimate of number of resources required, timeline and budget.
