Spending time on the right leads will increase your chances of success because you’re investing time and energy on the right people.

In order to start the process of qualifying or disqualifying a lead, it is important to ask these five fundamental questions: 

1. How Well Does the Prospect Meet Your Ideal Customer Profile? 
This question does not have to be an exhaustive process or a long list of qualities.
