Marketers can reduce costs by using lead scoring to identify their common traits or behaviors with maximum sales closing. However, traditional lead scoring does have its challenges, which led to LEadNEuron AI solutions for quicker and more accurate lead scores to identify high-propensity leads.

    What is AI Lead Scoring

    AI lead scoring, simply put, is automated lead scoring. It uses algorithms to process lead data and automate each lead’s propensity level. Many database platforms use their own lead-scoring models.

    AI Lead Scoring of Your Database
    CRM’s lead scoring model processes your existing database of leads. It determines where they are in the sales funnel and automates the nurturing process through personalized content.

    AI Lead Scoring of Third-Party Databases
    These third-party databases adapt their own model of automated lead-scoring. A user can acquire leads and their contact information using different search filters. For example, LinkedIn has a search function to look for professionals via job titles and industries.

    How Traditional Lead Scoring Works

    Traditional lead scoring, often called manual lead scoring, has long been a fundamental practice in B2B marketing. This approach involves assigning scores to leads based on predefined criteria such as demographic information and behavioral signals.

    Traditional lead scoring for personal databases includes:

    • Response rate to marketing emails
    • Downloaded giveaways
    • Frequency of social media engagement

    Manual lead-scoring for third-party databases:

    • Reviewing professional profiles and including people who fit in their Ideal Client Profile (ICP)

    Challenges in Traditional Lead Scoring

    Traditional lead scoring is prone to subjectivity due to its reliance on manual evaluation and judgment rather than data-driven algorithms. Here’s a more detailed explanation of how subjectivity can affect traditional lead scoring:

    Prone to subjectivity
    Human evaluators may unintentionally introduce bias into the scoring process. They may also have varied interpretations that can lead to inconsistencies in scoring.

    Manual lead scoring can be time-consuming, especially for businesses with a high volume of leads. Evaluators may struggle to keep up with the pace of incoming leads, potentially delaying lead follow-up and reducing the efficiency of the sales process.

    Miss valuable insights
    Traditional lead scoring may overlook nuanced data points and intricate patterns, limiting its accuracy in identifying high-propensity leads.

    Additionally, In today’s fast-paced business environment, many organizations are turning to automated lead scoring, harnessing the capabilities of artificial intelligence to overcome these limitations and enhance lead prioritization for improved conversion rates.

    How LeadNeuron AI Lead Scoring Works

    LeadNeuron AI or predictive lead scoring is a data-driven model based on people’s skills signals. LeadNeuron detects signals in a professional’s profile such as technical skills, technologies, certifications, membership to relevant groups and associations, etc. The model detects these signals in Rhetorik’s database of 800M+ professional profiles and builds your ideal audience following a 3-step process: 

    1) Defining target persona through  keywords, job titles, certifications, , skills
     (e.g., Python programming, seniority
    level, etc.), industries, company sizes, locations, etc.

    2) Running LeadNeuron AI to identify relevant
    signals across Rhetorik’s database of 800M+ professional profiles.

    3) Scoring and identifying thousands of individuals
    as high propensity leads, understanding your sales pitch and product offering
    at scale.

    Here is a real-life example of a LeadNeuron AI customer in the Cybersecurity industry where the usual job title approach did not provide a large enough qualified audience for this campaign. 

    LeadNeuron AI detected client’s desired keywords in cybersecurity like CISSP, IT, Compliance, Network security, Hitrust, Security policies, Security management systems, etc. across all the professional profiles. Each of those expressions are signals that LeadNeuron AI compiles and weights in order to confirm the relevancy of identified profiles. Usually, no less than 7 signals are required. The lead is categorized as a high propensity lead if the score is higher than 100. Subsequently, by using the power of LeadNeuron, you can access thousands of leads aligning with your ideal customer profiles.

    The detection scores’ outcomes are presented in the graph below. Inside the green rectangle, you’ll observe that thousands of leads have received a high propensity score, surpassing 100. The efficacy of LeadNeuron’s AI skills-based targeting is remarkable, swiftly pinpointing high-propensity buyers for the Rhetorik customer in a matter of minutes.

    This dynamic and automated approach offers enhanced precision, scalability, and consistency, allowing B2B marketers to prioritize high propensity leads with a higher likelihood of conversion. The resulting list of prospects, accompanied by contact data (email, last name, first name phone number and much more), is regularly refreshed and provided to our customers.
