Lead Gen: A proposed replacement for BANT

B2B Lead Generation

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.

Hey Marketing: An Inquiry Is Not A Lead

Marketing Insider Group

The most common definition of a lead comes from IBM who developed the BANT system years ago. Some have added to or modified the BANT qualification model , but the bottom line is that sales should never see leads from marketing that have not had some direct qualification, performed by a person, to determine if there is a real business opportunity.
