Lead Qualification The Inside Sales coverage you need to maximize your leads.

You invest a lot of time and money into generating leads. Your marketing efforts – webinars, tradeshows, white papers, and so forth – are driving more inbound leads than ever before. But you need optimal inside sales coverage to maximize the leads you’ve created.

It takes 31 dials on average to qualify a single inbound lead – even when they’re interacted with your content.

In fact, market research indicates that, up to 40 percent of all inbound leads never receive any kind of follow up from sales.

This is a common challenge for technology companies, and it typically comes down to coverage issues. Even large, talented inside sales teams can’t effectively cover the volume of leads being created today. BAO acts as extension of your sales and marketing team, so we can maximize your inbound lead flow, while allowing your inside team to increase their own sales productivity.

What It Is. How It Works.

Our Lead Qualification service handles the burden of qualifying a large volume of leads. In addition to quickly understanding which leads are worth your team’s time and attention, you also gain insight into program performance.
