The Importance of Persona-based Lead Scoring

Importance of Persona-based lead scoring

According to Aberdeen research, companies that get lead scoring right have a 192% higher average lead qualification rate than those that do not.

A lot is being said and done about lead scoring. Every week, we receive an alert on a white paper (sometimes well researched, sometimes not) that is solely based on the concept of lead scoring.

But another concept is picking up steam now and that is, persona-based lead scoring. Check out this excerpt from our white paper on persona-based lead scoring, that will be released soon:

“Marketing has always been an extension of the dialogue between buyers and sellers. Enter the information age. The marketer faces challenges of identifying preferences, content and geo market-centric personalization, which would complete this dialogue. Implementing a persona-based lead scoring system will help you classify leads based on their behavior and demographic details.

Based on their buying influences, different prospects have different approaches. Here is an example: prospect A visits your website’s home page, but prospect B goes to your product page directly and fills a form. Prospect B has displayed more interest by checking out your product. With persona-based lead scoring, depending on the persona prospect B belongs to, you score prospect B higher.”

Persona-based lead scoring is especially important because it will help in personalizing your lead scoring system thereby helping in better lead targeting, nurturing and conversions.
