What Is Lead Generation?

 Internet marketing lead generation is a way of warming up prospects to your business by offering them useful content and problem-solving resources. When a prospect becomes naturally interested in your company, you can create a path to eventual buying.

Traditionally a lead might be a qualified referral or someone you pitched at a trade show. On a larger scale, there are specialized services that create lead lists by mining telephone or internet directories.
