Make your number with less leads?

In this post we’ll walk you through a process that can focus on how our Marketing budget can be best spent to make your number with less leads.

Cost Per Lead Vs. Cost as a Percentage of Revenue: Shifting the Mindset

The old way of evaluating a lead was looking at the straight lead cost. Instead, let’s shift to lead cost as a percentage of revenue to evaluate the lead.  While cost per lead is an easy measure, it can lead to using cheap but ineffective lead sources.

A percent of revenue approach allows you to fund a budget that invests in the best lead performance.

Let’s look at examples of both scenarios:

Instead of setting a goal of finding those leads sources that cost less than £100 per lead, set a target to spend one percent of revenue:

Planned deal size: £10,000

Planned lead gen budget 1% of revenue: £100 per lead

Revenue generated less lead cost: £9,900

Now let’s increase the average deal size to £20,000:

Deal size: £20,000

Planned lead gen budget 1% of revenue: £200 per lead

Revenue generated less lead cost: £19,800

We shifted cost per lead to percentage of revenue, resulting in increasing the price of a deal. This directly increases the allowable spend for lead generation. It also increases revenue and also assist in making your number with less leads.
