Use Sales Leads to your Advantage

“It’s not about having the right opportunities, it’s about handling the opportunities right.” (Mark Hunter). When referring to sales leads, this line screams of truth. Sales leads provide opportunities to not only reach sales quotas but to exceed them. However, these leads are useless without understanding how to best utilize them.

Use the answers to these questions in the searching process, to find relevant and promising leads.
