What is lead management?
First let's understand better what is a lead. Leads are customers that have shown an interest in your solution but haven't made a purchase yet. They can come from many different sources: an event you've organized, emails, website, ads...
Lead management is basically the process of managing all these leads and ensuring that they get the attention they need.
Why lead management is important?
As your company scales, you are getting more and more leads. Sometimes more than what your sales team can handle. Consequently, they can no longer ensuring attention to each lead properly and things begin to fall through the cracks.
Implementing a good lead management process allows you to never miss out on opportunities. You can see the lead information, maintain communication, discern the hot leads from the cold ones and therefore improve conversion 🎉

If you are not sure how get started, you can use our lead management template. You will find it in the templates section of your monday.com account.

Instead of receiving information from your clients and then spending even more time inputting it into the platform, we've created a time-saving, client-pleasing solution: the forms
Simply create a board, tailor-made to your specifications. With a few clicks of a button, you'll be able to create a form based on that board, share it with your clients by link or by embedding it on a website. Each response will create a new item with all the answers you need.
Customize your board
- Add your groups
We’ve organized our board into groups to categorize our clients on our board by whether or not they’ve been assigned to a sales representative yet. Each item, under the group, is the name of our client.
- Add your columns
With over 20 different column types, there’s really no limit to how you can customize your board to fit your team’s needs.
People Column: Each lead can be assigned to a sales representative. This column helps to provide transparency on who is taking care of what.
Status Column: By adding multiple status columns and customizing the labels, you're able to track each stage the lead goes through! Remember, add and edit labels to fit your needs!
Numbers Column: The deal size of each lead can be tracked here, which your team can use to determine how to prioritize leads.
File column: Add a file column to keep the invoices of each lead or just any document you want.
Date column: You can add a date column to set up a next contact date with each lead. It is a great way to stay organized and make sure you give the attention needed to all your leads, on time.
