Stage one: Lead generation
Lead generation is where you collect info for prospective customers who are interested in what you're selling. You can generate leads through website forms, landing pages, ad tools, and more.
Quickly routing leads to the right app right away. That way, they don’t go cold, and you can start reaching out without delay.

Stage two: Lead cultivation and nurture
Not every lead is qualified or ready to buy right away—usually, they need a little convincing. Often, companies nurture leads through multiple channels like email campaigns, retargeted ads, and old-fashioned sales calls.
It's tough to reach leads with the right message in the right channel at the right time so that you can nurture them with the right content.
Enrich your lead data with automation. That way, you can send faster, more personalized outreach. Plus, you can build high-converting retargeted ad campaigns.

Stage three: Lead conversion
Congrats! A lead's ready to make a purchase. But there's still work to do. Depending on what products or services your business offers, you'll need to send a contract, invoice, or receipt. You’ll also want to track the sale internally.
Making sure a new customer's first buying and billing experience goes smoothly—so they become a repeat customer.
