Lead Scoring Checklist:
Do you generate enough Leads?
A lead scoring system, while always useful, may not be worth prioritising if you are not currently generating that many leads. Focusing your attention on lead scoring when your sales team is easily keeping up with the leads generated is not really necessary.

Are you ready to follow-up on those Leads?
Before you invest time into setting up a lead scoring process and system, check whether you have an optimised process being utilised by your sales team to convert those leads. If your sales team aren’t making the most of the information your Marketing team is providing currently, it’s unlikely they will capitalise on the benefits of lead scoring either.

Do you have clear Lead Scoring Criteria?
In order to score your leads you will need to have a good understanding of what makes a prospect buy. With this information you can look at specific, measurable conditions which make a lead more likely to buy. Ranking these conditions is key to your lead scoring.

Do you have Lead Data?
Information is vital. If you don’t have access to any information on your leads then you cannot possibly rate them. The more information you have the better. Though some data will be more useful than others, relevancy to your business is the key. These are some examples of data which should be relevant to most businesses:

The more information you have on each individual lead the easier it is to rank who wants to make an investment right now.

Lead Scoring Implementation
Lead Scoring is a large investment for high ROI. While this should be very appealing, you do have to consider whether you will have the time and budget to apply your lead scoring system correctly.
