What People are Saying About This
Brian Carroll "gets" that marketing and sales must have a common definition of a lead and a "sales-ready" lead is a targeted decision maker who is curious how you have helped someone with the same job title in the same industry achieve a goal or solve a problem.

If you can't generate a solid flow of good leads, your sales force - and your company - will fail. Yet, for most organizations, lead generation is a hit-or-miss affair.

Carroll has provided a very helpful book for companies that are involved in complex sales. Too many marketing departments provide the sales force with a high number of leads but not with a high number of quality leads. Carroll provides many ideas and lists to help companies improve, manage, and measure their lead generation performance. He does an excellent job of describing the use of the major contact tools for lead generation and nurturing.
