What is lead generation? What are the types of lead generation? Is lead generation profitable?

Lead generation takes place in the second stage of the inbound marketing process, and it plays an important role when it comes to converting visitors that you previously attracted to leads.

Furthermore, lead generation enables you to run more specific research and collect essential data about your audience from different demographic locations, focusing on their wants, needs, as well as their objectives, and preferences. This way you can constantly improve your services and add more value to your product based on verified information.

Simply put, a lead is a potential client that has shown interest in your products or your company’s services. The process entails a broad range of different tactics and strategies which, if applied correctly to each social media platform, can positively influence your marketing efforts.
