When it comes to generating leads, some of the best practice can help. Like, you can exchange business cards, keep 30-second pitch handy, use LinkedIn/Quora to answer question, respond to blog comments, Twitter and Facebook and finally listen to prospect coming from various ad channels you might be using. But how do you scale up all this? It would be silly, to manually export a CSV file and import it to the CRM like AWeber or MailChimp to keep track of email subscriber list.
