Bad Lead = Good Lead? Because hidden oportunity is the best kind.

Friday, November 2nd, 2007 | Link | Spread The Word!


Our own Lead Guru has written a great post about the hidden opportunity in bad leads, over at Lead Critic.

Purchased internet leads have a bad phone number percentage that ranges from 8% to 22%. Do you just return these leads without trying to salvage a deal? NO, NO, NO. Email that borrower assuming they entered in the phone number incorrectly intentionally.

We devote a lot of our time and resources to helping our customers get to leads faster and more efficiently than their competition. In other words, day in and day out, we help our customers do the same thing that everyone else is doing, but we help them do it faster, better, and smarter. Lead Guru brings up a good point. There is often an equal or greater opportunity in knowing what your competition is NOT doing. Leads with bad phone numbers are likely to be ignored or given lower priority than those with valid phone numbers. Thus, for any lead that is sold to multiple brokers, a lead with a bad phone number may result in a higher chance of closing a deal. As Americans increasingly spend more time online, B2C sales must adjust their workflow to reach their customers in the way that they would like to be reached.

  1. I just got off the phone with a prospective client and we discussed the issue of email marketing. This is a national lender, one of the 5 largest in the nation, and they are not utilizing their current database of clients and email marketing to them. All…you know…one million plus. Money on the table folks, this is opportunity, it’s knocking, and you’re not listening. PAY ATTENTION!
