How to Use the Organic Search Leads in Salesforce

How to Use the Organic Search Leads in Salesforce

Salesforce can be used to capture leads and analyze them. The platform now includes a feature for organic lead tracking functionality. Organic search leads monitoring in Salesforce enables the user to track their lead sources by adding a Salesforce snippet on the user’s web page.

The Lead Source

Lead source is defined as the primary source of the lead a business is receiving. It is the first-hand source where the generated leads came from.

Many users mistake lead source from lead channels. For instance, a business gets leads from a trade show. They then input the specific trade show name under the lead sources in Salesforce. This is wrong, since the trade show’s name is viewed as the lead channel, not the source. The lead source should have been “trade show” per se. There will be times that the business gets leads from various other expos, so these have to be listed under “trade show” rather than the specific expo name.

Monitoring the lead source often comes with Salesforce Campaigns, which are available on the Professional Edition and in subsequent higher licenses.
