What is lead generation?
Lead generation is all about identifying and attracting potential customers. “Lead generation refers to all activities aimed at getting in touch with potential customers.” You want to “educate” a lead about the problem and solution you offer them. It’s about igniting that interest and prompting action.
B2B lead generation
Lead generation also occurs in business-to-consumer companies (B2C), but it is especially attractive to business-to-business companies (B2B). Why is lead generation so interesting for businesses? B2B often involves a complex buying process, where the lead needs more time to actually make a purchase. This buying process is also called the buyer journey. By guiding the buyer persona during the complex buying process you help this lead further in the sales funnel.

Quality leads as the ultimate goal
Generation leads can be done in several ways. In an outbound method you try to convince a potential customer of your product. For example, by using online advertisements. An inbound method involves offering the right content to the right target group at the right time. For example, by using SEO content to get people to your website and have them download a white paper. With lead generation, the goal is that website visitors make themselves known on your website by leaving their details. Without that information, they still remain an anonymous visitor.
