How to Accelerate Prospecting with Buyer Intent Data

Every business wants to accelerate the prospecting process and increase its conversion rate. Trawling through a long database of potential leads and manually qualifying them is not only daunting but also time-consuming.
Wouldn’t it be easier if you could just automate the process and generate a list of hot leads that are ready to be contacted? 

Identify, Prioritize, Connect and Optimize

To accelerate your prospecting, you need to identify your leads, qualify them, and make targeted connections in a timely and personalized manner.

Buyers with a clear intent to purchase will conduct extensive research weeks, sometimes months before engaging with you as a vendor. In fact, by the time a prospect approaches your brand, clicks onto your website, or clicks on one of your ads, your leads have already been informed about their options. 

Michael Green, COO at Lead Onion explains; 

“First, you need to identify companies that are actively looking for your brand. The best way to do so is by monitoring buyer intent. Intent data gives you the necessary insight into your prospect’s online behavior to indicate where they are in your sales funnel and their level of interest in your solution.”

Any spike in their interest in your industry, and more importantly your brand, indicates an increased propensity to buy. 

With Lead Onion’s powerful search engine, you can use integrated filters to find your best leads at a touch of a button. Buyer intent in itself, however, is not enough to move your leads towards the top of the funnel. 

22% of salespeople find qualifying prospects one of the most challenging parts of the sales process.

To ensure you reach out to the hottest leads in your pipeline you need to qualify them first. The time spent on manually analyzing intent signals, qualifying leads, and finding actionable contact details can take days, if not weeks, so it is not surprising that 22% of salespeople find qualifying prospects one of the most challenging parts of the sales process.

Automating your qualification process will save you time, increase your efficiency and improve your overall profitability.

The Surge Intent tool included in Lead Onion’s toolkit makes lead qualification instantaneous. It not only highlights companies that show intent across multiple channels but helps you prioritize high-value accounts based on their propensity to buy.
