Lead Liaison offers custom lead scoring and out-of-the-box (automatic) lead scoring to simplify lead qualification. Automatic lead scoring saves marketers precious time not having to configure common scoring activities and allows sales people to immediately benefit from instantaneous lead qualification. Out-of-the-box lead scoring runs, well, out of the box! No setup is required before leads are automatically scored. As soon as a common event (email open, website visit, etc.) occurs the respective event score is added in real-time to a Prospect's lead score. The lead score cumulates over time. Default lead scores can be changed to suit the needs of your business.
What's Automatically Scored?
Lead Liaison automatically scores common events/activities, as listed below. If you do not want Lead Liaison to automatically score these events then double click the value in the Points column and enter "0" or "+0".
Tip on Email Open
Only the first opened email will be automatically scored. For example, sending Email A to a Prospect 5 times will only add a score for the first email open event. The last four email open events (on the same email, Email A) will not be scored.
To change the default lead score for out-of-the-box lead scoring do the following:
Go to Settings > App Setup > Lead Qualification > Lead Scoring
Under the Baseline box double click the value in the Points column as shown below
Updates to out of the box lead scoring are applied to future events only and past events are not updated retroactively. For example, if Prospect A received 5 points for opening an email in August and the "Email Open" lead score was changed to 10 points in September and Prospect B opened an email in October then Prospect B would receive 10 points and Prospect A would still have 5 points. Prospect A would not have the 5 points changed to 10 points since the change in September occurred after Prospect A's scoring event.
Analyzing a Prospect's Lead Score
From the Prospect Profile Page
To view a Prospect's lead score from the Prospect Profile page, select "Score" from the dropdown on the Prospect Profile page.
To see the details of a lead score and how the score was calculated click the lead score value under the Score column on the Visitors page.
The lead score value on the Visitors page is color coded based on your settings under the Lead Score box on the Prospect Profiling page. Blue is for a Cold lead, yellow is for a Warm lead and red is for a Hot lead. To change your lead score thresholds go to Settings > App Setup > Lead Qualification > Lead Scoring and change the sliding scale.
