Updated: Nov 16, 2021

Let's Talk contact form and online workshop.

Whether you’re thinking about your short-term or long-term business goals, B2B lead generation is as important today as it’s ever been. A strong approach to generating B2B leads can set up your agency for big gains now and well into the future.

Of course, it all depends on the effectiveness of your methods. This is where things get interesting, because there’s no “one right way” of snagging top leads. The key is to get a clear handle on the various factors that go into the process, then to build a system that works—and keeps working—for you and your clients.

The 3 steps of the B2B lead generation funnel

The obvious goal is to quickly convert leads into customers. But what steps are taken to get them from initial point of contact to the conversion? In each case, the customer moves through a process that can be broken into 3 basic steps:

1. Initiation

The customer becomes aware of the product or service.

2. Evaluation

The customer assesses the offerings by comparing it with competitors.

3. Conversion

The customer takes action by buying a product or joining a program.
