Growth Hack #1 – 3 Ways to Disqualify Bad Leads:

Spending too much time talking to wrong leads? 

As counterintuitive as this sounds, the easiest way to qualify leads and remove the bad ones is to add friction in the lead generation process. This way, only truly motivated prospects will move on to the next step! 

BUT add smart friction. 

What does this mean? 

Ask additional questions a motivated customer wants to answer, but an unmotivated one doesn’t or can’t yet! 


– A longer, two-part form to fill in (make the second part optional with secondary questions. Then, prioritize contacting those who fill in the second part well ).

– Send them an email that asks a pertinent question before you call them.

– Ask a question that requires an open text answer rather than drop downs or multiple choices.
