Trust but Verify
If you have ever said “these leads suck” ask yourself if you have done any experimenting with changing your filters? Have you done an analysis of the leads or are you repeating what your producers or sales people are saying when they are outside smoking cigarettes or drinking coffee in the breakroom?
There are a lot of people involved with a lead from generating it to closing it and that is called a borrower’s journey. This journey should be tracked and analyzed. It is the only way you know for sure what is happening with your business.

Make your own luck
Purchasing leads are just one of the ways to find prospects. If you want to add value start producing your own leads.

This will give you an opportunity to build a marketing strategy around your borrower personas and then you can activate tactical marketing campaigns to target that borrower persona.
