Sales Lead Job Description

A sales lead refers to information about a potential customer who is considered a potential customer.

Buyers who are considered sales leads can come from a range of places.

For example, they can often be found through lead generators, buyer’s clubs, classified ads, and internet searches.

Sales leads can also be sourced through referrals and personal relationships.

Sales leads are prospects that possess some level of interest.

However, without an action step being taken, they have not yet become a potential client and are still considered a sales lead.

Sales leads can be sorted in a variety of ways, including by industry, company size, and geographics
