Lead Gen: A proposed replacement for BANT

B2B Lead Generation

Tweet According to the MarketingSherpa 2012 Lead Generation Benchmark Report , 24% of marketers ask a timeline-to-purchase question on their lead capture forms. Q: Please select the most important fields that you need to collect from your leads on the lead generation form. I suspect marketers do so because they have heard about “BANT qualified leads” and apply these criteria to Web forms. For the uninitiated, BANT is an acronym: B = Budget.

Lead Qualification: The Secret Sauce of B2B Lead Generation Marketing

Biznology

The Number One rule in B2B marketing: Never, ever, pass an unqualified lead to your sales force. In this kind of situation, the lead should stay with the marketing team, where the relationship can be developed, and nurtured, until it’s ready to take up a salesperson’s valuable time. But all this assumes that the marketing team has a clue about what kind of lead is ready for a sales rep. Enter the concept known as lead qualification.

Leads are qualified through marketing automation systems; now called AQL, or automated qualified lead. If marketing automation qualifies the lead via lead scoring, they are sent to sales to become SAL, or the traditional sales-accepted lead.
