Lead generation is the process of attracting prospects by showcasing your offering across different online and offline platforms. Brands do this through ads, social media, informative articles, whitepapers, reports, webinars, events, tradeshows, and more. For example, brands offer eBooks and other informative resources to convert their website visitors into leads. The purpose of lead generation is to build a sales pipeline and nurture targets until they’re ready to buy.
Along with the lead generation strategy, brands also need a mechanism to capture the leads generated from different sources. The best way to capture lead data is to use CRM software. It allows brands to easily capture lead activities such as website visits, ad clicks, phone calls, and email opens and attributes such as location, contact details, work profile, lead source, and more.
In simple terms, a lead is an individual or organization that shows interest in your product or service and has expressed this interest by sharing their contact information, like an email ID, a phone number, or their social media handle. In CRM software, the term lead designates an individual who might become your customer through proper nurturing and follow-ups.
Lead capture is a process of acquiring all the leads from several digital and offline channels into a CRM system. The most common lead capture mechanisms are as follows:
✅ Website lead capture forms: When someone fills your contact form or signs up for a free trial.
✅ Ads: When a lead enters their details on Google or LinkedIn Ads, the CRM system can capture them as a lead.
✅ Phone calls: An incoming phone call or voicemail to a company’s number is automatically registered as a new lead. If the number already exists, then instead of creating a new record, the CRM system updates it as a lead activity.
✅ Emails: An incoming email to a company’s email address (such as firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, or firstname.lastname@example.org) is automatically entered as a new lead in the CRM. You can also capture leads from your email marketing campaigns.
✅ Social media: An incoming message, question, or comment via social network or messenger (such as LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, Skype, WhatsApp, etc.) can also be captured as a lead.
Along with lead capture, CRM software takes care of the end-to-end lead management process.
