What Confuses Sales? “Marketing-Qualified Leads”

24 Jan

I read a great blog post by J. David Green that emphasizes the importance of marketing and sales creating what he calls, “sales-validated leads.” Instead of marketing asking sales if the leads they passed along were qualified, they should be asking sales to “validate whether the lead is really a lead, per the definition agreed to by sales and marketing.”

He suggest that for most marketing organizations, this small change in funnel focus can make a huge difference in plugging funnel leaks.
