At Think Pipeline, one of the most common inquiries we receive revolves around the intricate topic of lead Service Level Agreements (SLAs). Customers, partners, and even our own team members are often curious: how exactly do we determine a lead SLA?
To provide clarity on this vital subject, we're offering an inside look into our approach. Our methodology, though seemingly complex, is founded on a few simple principles: understanding, collaboration, and precision.
Understanding the Essence of a Good Lead
The initial stage in determining a lead SLA is to truly understand what constitutes a 'good' lead for you, our customer. After all, each business has its own unique definition. Some may prioritize high purchasing power, while others might focus on engagement levels or specific demographics.
Our objective is to ensure that we’re not just identifying any lead but ones that align perfectly with your brand, offering, and campaign goals. This ensures that the subsequent outreach and nurturing processes are efficient and effective.
Campaign Goals and Messaging
Your campaign’s objectives are the bedrock upon which the entire operation rests. We need to grasp what you're hoping to achieve once the campaign concludes. Is it increased brand awareness? Direct sales? Or perhaps customer retention?
Furthermore, the message you wish to broadcast to the market plays a pivotal role. It’s essential to tailor this message to resonate with the intended audience, prompting them to take the desired action.
Target Market Scope
The scope of the target market you’re aiming for is intrinsically linked to the lead SLAs. Essentially, the broader the remit, the larger the lead SLAs will be. If you're targeting a niche segment, for instance, the numbers would differ compared to a campaign targeting a more general audience. This is a crucial element that directly impacts the volume of leads we expect.
Crafting the Perfect Lead SLA
With a clear understanding of the aforementioned elements, we head back to our strategy room. Here, we synthesize all the collected data and insights to make an informed estimate.
One of the key metrics we focus on is gauging how many conversations we believe our team can engage in each day. This is derived from the vast amount of data we’ve collected over numerous campaigns, our team's capacity, and the specific nuances of the campaign in question.
From this number, we craft your lead SLA. It's a figure rooted in research, experience, and, most importantly, collaboration with you.
The process of determining a lead SLA at Think Pipeline might seem intricate, but it’s meticulously designed to align with your goals. Our commitment is to ensure that every lead we identify for you isn't just a number but a potential success story. We believe in quality, precision, and most importantly, results that speak for themselves.
Remember, at Think Pipeline, your success is our success.
