Lead generation is the process of harvesting potential customers through SEO PPC or Social Media channels, for a particular business. Customers may be B2B or B2C and they can be product or service related.
At its simplest, a set of online advertisements drives traffic to landing pages. The landing pages serve a simple singular function (if done well).
A more complex approach could involve a telemarketing layer or qualifying leads with forms and data gathering. This allows the leads to be segmented and quality scored.
Lead generation is always highly strategic and difficult for a business to excel in. Having access to volume is also a concern not just quality.
Lead generation is often an afterthought in marketing departments and if done, not done well.
