Lesson Description:

An important part of sales enablement is getting marketing involved in generating leads. But in order for your marketing team to be able to generate leads that your sales team will love, both teams need to have a shared understanding of what a qualified lead is. Dan McDade, who has built a 20-year career on qualifying leads for companies, tells a cautionary tale about a company whose marketing team was super proud of the fact that they could generate leads for the low, low cost of $23.15 per lead. But the sales team refused to contact them because they said the leads were no good.
