Time to Truly Qualify Your CPL?
If you've been in the B2B lead generation arena for any length of time, then you have likely learned the hard way that low-cost lead generation is rarely profitable. Furthermore, poor lead quality can often result in distractions and some annoyance on the buy side and the sell side. Therefore, to help set expectations for our performance marketing clients, Programmatic B2B created its offical MQL-CPL Calculator.
MQL = Marketing Qualified Lead
CPL = Cost per Lead
Lead costs can vary significantly based on numerous factors, so we focused on the ones that mattered most across our clients' campaigns with an emphasis on the prospect's level of relevance and intent. It takes into consideration the following:
In market qualification
Desire to speak with a representative
Brand strength of the advertiser
Each of these contribution factors is weighted in the final average cost per lead calculation.
