The biggest benefit for purchasing prequalified leads, is the benefit of weeding out unnecessary leads. For example, if you purchase a lead list of 100 leads and 25% to 30% of those leads are not qualifying leads, you could end up spending hours weeding out those particular leads. However, by purchasing prequalified lead lists these unnecessary leads are already weeded out for you. This saves time, money and keeps the budget balanced for the profit educational expenses.
The billable hours that are reduced by purchasing prequalified leads can be staggering depending on the amount of leads that the educational organizations purchases. For example, if you purchase a lead list of 100 leads that are prequalified you have already reduced your time by over half. However, if you purchase a much larger lead list you will not only reduce your billable hours but you may also reduce the amount of manpower that you need in order to contact these leads and prequalify them. Overall, a for-profit organization purchasing prequalified leads can save anywhere from 25% to 40% on billable man-hours, time, and budgeting.
