How Many “Leads” Does $100,000 Buy?
MAY 17, 2018
To the sales VP, a contact (you can buy 200,000 or more of them for $100,000) was undifferentiated from a sales qualified lead. First, it’s never wise to buy 200,000 contacts all at once. In my opinion, the reason that companies still use content aggregators is because they can buy a quantity of leads for what appears to be a reasonable price—and because sales reps don’t follow-up on the leads anyway—and marketing can check the box on delivering leads to sales that, well, aren’t.
