    Notes on lead scoring
  • 84. Defining Lead Scoring
    Lead Scoring
    Ranking, grouping, assignment of arbitrary value to leads that share similar demographic and behavioral profiles. Assignment of value = typically 3-4 categories (ABCD, Gold-Silver-Bronze…etc)
    Lead Routing
    Assignment of leads to sales or marketing programs based on Lead Scores
    Lead Profiling
    Continuous and automated evaluation of lead behavior over time triggers a responsive action (campaign, follow up call…etc)
  • 85. Demographics & behavioral data
    • Demographic data alone is not enough to build a lead scoring model
    • 86. Behavioral data, combined with demographic is most powerful
    • 87. 2 Types of behavioral data
    • 88. Implicit online behavior – pages viewed, time on site in 1 session, total sessions over period of time….etc
    • 89. Explicit behavior – register for webinar, download document, fill out form
    • 90. Implicit behavioral data – similar to RF Models used in retail
