A lead pool is a database of potential clients or customers that you can draw from when you need to generate new leads. It comes from your Lead Generation or Demand Generation efforts.

Leads can be generated through many different channels, some of which are:

  • DM outreach

  • Social sales

  • Blog content

  • LinkedIn postings

  • Networking prospects

  • Email marketing

There are several benefits to building a lead pool.

1. It saves you time ⏱

When you have a lead pool, you don't have to start from scratch every time you need to generate new leads.

You can simply draw from your pool of pre-qualified prospects.

A pre-qualified lead is a potential customer who meets predetermined criteria deeming them a good candidate for your product or service. With this list, you can always look back and find tonnes of detail about your prospects.

2. It helps you target your marketing 🎯

When you know your target market, you can more effectively market to them. A lead pool allows you to target your marketing efforts and ensure that you're reaching the right people.

By creating and posting content that is targeted to your lead pool, you can easily expand your organic reach.

Organic reach is the number of people who have seen your content through unpaid distribution, solely through the normal algorithm, your content, and unpaid efforts. With this raw data, your marketing efforts can be finetuned to be highly targeted to your audience.

Create content that speaks to them.

This results in:

  • More profile visitors

  • More website visitors

  • More email subscribers

  • More customers

3. It keeps your leads organised 📂

A lead pool allows you to keep your leads organised and tidy. You can track your progress and keep your leads sorted by stage in the sales process.

This helps you to follow up with leads in a timely manner and close more deals.

4. It allows you to track your ROI 📊

When you have a lead pool, you can track your return on investment for your marketing campaigns. This data can be invaluable in planning your marketing strategy and budget.

Because the process of lead generation is a targeted approach, your lead pool should be high quality and more likely to convert.

Keep in mind that to track ROI, you’ll need to indicate their statuses, whether it was accepted, replied to, sales call booked, or unresponsive.

5. It can be used for lead nurturing 🌱

Lead nurturing is the process of developing relationships with leads that may not be ready to buy right away.

By adding leads to your pool, you can keep them in your sales pipeline and nurture them until they're ready to buy.

Building a lead pool can be a great way to save time, target your marketing, and track your ROI. It can also be used for lead nurturing, which can help you close more deals.

If you're not already using a lead pool, you should consider engaging a creative team or agency to implement one in your business.

LinkedIn is a powerful tool that can help you connect with potential customers and clients. By building your lead pool, you’re giving yourself the opportunity to develop relationships with potential customers and clients.
