Prospecting with Lead Generation Software

Using Lead Generation Software Leads to Superior Revenue Growth—  Learn How You Can Benefit.

Consistently reported among sales leaders, in surveys year-in and year-out, are the challenges associated with consistent, repeatable lead generation.

There are software programs that enable you to automate top-of-the funnel sales prospecting thereby allowing you to target accounts and customers who fit your ideal customer profile.

Traditionally, this process can often take an inordinate amount of time…software enables the most accurate pinpointing of leads and ensures the time you do spend is focused and efficient.

Target: Lead Generation

Lead generation solutions will ease the cumbersome process of filling your sales pipeline by automating the process of locating targeted leads who are most likely to have an interest in your product or service.

Simplified by the software, it lets you start from the broad and focus to the specific. For example, setting search parameters such as geography, title, company size or even “tech stack used” then, scan multiple data sources (each containing millions of contacts) to identify email, social information, direct dial phone numbers, company headquarters data for each new lead. The best of these systems can also get very granular, including email guessing where no data exists, or sleuthing out current news on accounts for trigger-event selling.

Simplify The Process

Using It Will Help You Tame Tedious Administrative Tasks


Lead builders aren’t all alike, and no one has time for software tools that won’t take care of some of the heavy-lifting for you.

An excellent solution will recognize when you’re out on the World Wide Web, on networks like LinkedIn or a targeted company website with an ‘About Us’ page full of potential contacts.  The best solutions will build a targeted lead list quickly and save in an actionable place, then upload automatically into your CRM.

Just as importantly, the best lead generation software will have a user experience geared towards the realities of working those lists often. It’s not just a 1-and-done proposition here. You have to be able to use the on-demand tool every day– among even a large team with clear rules of engagement, no stepping on toes and the ability to identify leads already worked, contacts already in your CRM or change ownership quickly (or in bulk).

Lead generation should be simplified when using the right solutions– which make short work of what would otherwise be data-entry and research nightmares.

Leading sales organizations virtually always have full pipelines of qualified targets. They know their future revenue depends on it.
Lead generation isn’t optional for these achievers–it’s mandatory.

Time is money. The right software means no more wasting time on outdated lists, laborious research, or incorrect targeting.
