Lead scoring is one of the most important activities to decide when someone gets entered into—or removed from—a nurture stream. Lead scoring is a formula for determining how to treat each lead based on the lead’s characteristics and activities. In this post I show you how to set up a New Lead Scoring Rule in Microsoft Dynamics Marketing.
“Lead scoring is a method for determining the relative quality of one prospect compared to another, helping identify leads that are ready to interact with sales, those that need further nurturing and those that aren’t a good fit for your company.”
The lead scoring model is based on two dimension:
The lead’s explicit score based on demographic data submitted by the website visitor (such as via landing page form), or through data aquired via a business information directory. To determine the lead score, the relevant fields – for example company name, company email address, country, region, etc. must be identified, the the marketing team assigns scores to each field with input form sales. The weight of these scores depends on the value the organization places on each field.
Unlike the explicit score model, the implicit score is based on a lead’s activities and interactions with the organization, such as website visits, content downloads, email opens, event attendance, and webinar participation, etc. In many cases, this score takes into account both frequency and recency of these activities. In other words, someone who repeatedly visits the company’s website, and attends a webinar in a two-week period will get a higher score than someone who visited the site once and hasn’t revisited the site or engaged with the company in over a month.
To score and grade leads automatically we need to set up and configure the lead score model. Microsoft Dynamics Marketing is extremely flexible so you can configure and assign lead scoring models to match the precise business needs, priorities, and processes in place at your organization.
Now I provide you a walkthrough to help you creating your first lead scoring model:
In the Rules section yo can establish a set of rules for your model. As I wrote above the lead scoring model is based on two dimensions: explicit or imlicit. Now I provide you a walkthrough to help you creating rules.
I hope this help.
