Pardot Lead Scoring and Grading

Get help with lead scoring & grading

Find and focus on the hottest leads most likely to buy

You can practice scoring your leads on both behaivoural and demographic (also known as firmographic) parameters. This will ensure you have the best understanding when someone is ready to engage with sales.

Marketing departments need to work in close collaboration with sales to understand what behaviours are good buying signals. Also, it’s important to know what data is required from leads perform accurate scoring and when is a lead sales qualified.

Lead scoring criteria

When developing your Pardot Lead Grading, you will want your leads passed (from marketing to sales) to match your organization’s ideal consumer profile. When doing this, Macro can set up an automatic evaluation that is based on criteria (to name a few) such as:

  • Industry – This will help to ensure that your company is only marketing the organizations that reside in one of your company’s targeted industries.
  • Location – Leads can be scored by location, should you choose to utilize a priority list that is base on geographical location.
  • Company Size – Eliminate the time-wasting efforts associated with the pursuit of leads that involve organizations that are either too small or too large to utilize your product(s).
  • Job Title – This way, you can ensure that you’re presenting your sales pitch to a decision-maker.

Pardot Lead Scoring

Pardot, on the other hand, can be used with lead grading. This will ensure that the leads which are received by sales, from marketing, are the most qualified. Lead scores can be indicated by numerical values which can show how interested the prospect is, when it comes to product and/or service.

You can set up, what you consider to be the most “valuable” actions for a prospect. For example, these actions could be: asking for a demonstration or asking about pricing. Then, you can construct your scoring that will indicate just how strong the prospect’s interest level is. Also, your scoring can indicate how active they’ve been, within a certain time period.

What influences lead scoring?

A lead’s score can be influenced by:

  • The number of downloads that specify where the prospect is at, in respect to the buying cycle.
  • The number of pages that are viewed and which pages are viewed, that will indicate how engaged a prospect is with your site.
  • Website searches that will also indicate a prospect’s interests and priorities.
  • Email click-throughs also show what a prospect is interested in.
