When it comes to lead management, there are some best practices that can help you take full advantage of lead management software.

Define the difference between interest and intent

How do you distinguish a lead that’s just looking around from the ones that really intend to buy?

To better manage your leads, you need to differentiate people who are just interested in your content, downloads etc. just for their information but are not willing to buy from those people that have the intent to buy.

With the help of lead scoring, you figure out leads that are actively in the search of a solution to their problem and segment them leads according to their behavior.

Leads receive scores by virtue of actions they take on your site or with the email’s you send them. Leads who get the highest scores deserve the most attention.
