Statistic Info

On average, organizations generate 1,877 leads per month and 1523 MQLs (Marketing Qualified leads). Just over one in ten are unable to say how many leads they generate in a given month.

From those leads, contacts sources by sales, and other means, organizations generate an average of 312 sales opportunities and 318 new customers per month. One explanation for the fact that the number of opportunities is less than the number of customers for some companies, could be that several business models are based on touchless sales.
