One of the most common complaints Iceberg hears from marketing teams is that they don’t know what happens to leads after they are passed to the sales team. Marketing invests huge amounts of time and money into generating demand, but they have no visibility into whether the fruit of their labor is given adequate attention.
Not surprisingly, a common issue sales teams raise is that they struggle to track and manage the process of responding to inbound leads. They rely on a poorly configured CRM or sales reps’ self-reporting to understand whether all leads have been addressed.
This problem is more than just frustrating – it’s expensive. The opportunity cost of missing just one lead per day can be upwards of $700,000 in annual revenue.
So why do so many teams struggle to get this right? Short answer: it’s a hard problem to solve. Every hand-off within your funnel presents an operational challenge — after all, they are intentional points of failure with the potential to be an operational nightmares. If you haven’t dealt with the problem before, then solving it in your first try is unlikely.
