First a little background and definitions of some terminology:


What is the Buyer's Journey?

The buyer's journey describes a buyer's path to become a customer. Buyers go through a process typically starting with the awareness stage, then the consideration stage and then to making a decision or the decision stage. During this journey the goal of marketing is to understand the buyer's needs and provide them the information they need in order for them to reach their goals.


What is a MQL or Marketing Qualified Lead?

An MQL or marketing qualified lead is a lead who has indicated interest in what a brand has to offer based on marketing efforts and is more likely to become a customer than other leads. 


What is the Lead Network and Why is It Important?

The lead network is all of the MQLs that are technically leads, but they are in the awareness and/or consideration stage of the buyer journey.

It is crucial to have a growing and thriving lead network to which you can market and continue to nurture with the goal of converting those leads to qualified sales leads and eventually customers.
