Sales lead generationis often a business to business (B2B) requirement and sometimes a business to consumer (B2C) goal when you are dealing with high involvement sales with a customer. This will tend to be for larger purchases ($500 plus) where an ongoing client relationship is likely. This is much more likely to come from a marketing consultancy than from an advertising agency, and developed from a content marketing (or inbound marketing) approach online and a sales funnel approach offline.  

Marketing examples:

  1. You are major brand retailer with a variety of products across several markets.
    Go to an advertising agency with significant brand advertising experience.

  2. You are a professional service provider who is competing in a crowded market.
    Go to a Marketing Consultancy with an inbound marketing specialty.
