Leads for Software Are What Keeps Up Your Guard

Sales leads represent the many opportunities to keep going forward in your cleaning business. This can be relief for those who feel that any target market gets dominated by a competitor. On the other hand, you do not want that relief lowering your guard!

Think of your sales leads like building stones to a fort. You make the most of your stock to build the strongest walls without any waste whatsoever. However, despite how much you have built, you will eventually run out of stones. What happens when your competitor has managed to grab all the sales leads outside and leave you with nothing? Given time, that wall will crumble.

A Real Life Example Of What Happens When You Cease Pursuing More Sales Leads

Derek Brown describes an actual, real life example of the above in this article from ReadWrite:

“Those points are all very true. Unfortunately for Apple, though, they’re also largely irrelevant going forward, given the alarming rate at which consumers worldwide are speaking with their wallets and selecting Android handsets over iOS handsets. With just a few more quarters like this, coupled with the cumulative effect of similar sales data over the past 2-3 years and the likely coming wave of Android-based tablets, it is a given (to me, anyway) that Android will be soon be effectively ubiquitous around the globe.”

Yes, you should do your best to really maximizing the business relationships coming out of your qualified business leads. However, again, that is just the same as making sure every stone is used to maximum strength. It can save up on the amount required to fortify your marketing position. But so long as your sales leads are not coming in fast enough, you risk losing new ones to competitors who see you as too preoccupied.

There should always be a balance between getting new golden eggs and making use of old ones. Most often though, focus is given to recycling your sales leads (which is understandable). The thing is both have one common enemy: neglect. The question is how can you not neglect one group of sales leads in favor of the other?

  • 1. Understand competitor’s rate – Instead of just building walls with highly interested prospects, know that your lead generation tools can be used to understand competitors as well. It is like sending someone up the battlements with a telescope. Do not just keep an eye on how many sales leads you can make use of but also how many you can get outside at the same time!
  • 2. Watch for news – News updates are another good source of information to equip your prospecting campaign. Things that affect the market can affect all sales leads just as weather can affect both the stones in a fort wall and those outside it. And remember, your competitors are likely watching the weather too so use your understanding of them to go for sales leads when the conditions suit you best!
  • 3. Get help if you can – You might also want to consider outsourcing an additional software lead generation provider. If you feel like you are being outrun by a more resourceful competitor, having another business help is your way of making up for your lack. Getting sales leads does not always have to be a solo endeavor.

Generating leads for software solutions is often oversimplified into just generators of opportunity or amplifiers when they can actually do both!
