Sales leads… a salesperson or not, I’m sure you have heard of the word “leads”.
In sales, a lead is a prospective consumer of a product or service, created when an individual or business shows interest and provides contact information. Businesses gain access to sales leads through advertising, trade shows, direct mailings and other marketing efforts.
Every telecom company owner struggle from getting high quality leads for their business. Sure they get leads, but at the end of the day, what’s important is the ROI for all of their efforts.
What is a qualified lead?
A qualified lead is a person or a company who is looking, is interested or would like to buy your product that is within your target market. With or without sales experience, there is no doubt that you can have qualified leads as well as other businesses with owners or employees that are experts in their field. How?

What to look for if you’re planning on hiring a consultant.
- Flexible. Someone that can take on their roles easily and adapt to a new project and environment.
- Discipline. Has a goal and knows how to accomplish the best result quickly.
- Confident. Knows what they are capable of and how to deliver the result.
- Don’t give up easily. Even if new problems arise, they are always positive that they can find a solution and prevent it from happening again.
