How to identify anonymous website traffic and turn them into customers with Leadexplorer

Every sales and marketing team dream about increasing their number of qualified leads. That’s no surprise. Still, many companies today forget that they actually already have the most powerful marketing and sales tool at their disposal. A tool that collects information about leads everyday, but in the unknown. We’re talking about your website and your website traffic. In this post, you’re going to learn how to identify anonymous website traffic and how to turn them into customers.


Most B2B sales start online. Simply put, B2B buyers spend a lot of their time researching the Internet and then contacting a seller themselves when they’re ready for. Actually, 57% of the customer journey have already been completed before a sales person is even involved. At some point in their research, perhaps they click an ad or do a Google search, they end up on your website. The crux is that only 2 out of 10 visitors tells you who they are by filling out a form, etc. This means that leads have already started a buying process with you, and you don’t even know about it yet. Just imagine if you could get a name on those leads. This is where Leadexplorer can help you out. Just as the name implies, it’s a tool that helps you identify anonymous website traffic and really get to know your leads. Information that’s valuable to both your marketing and sales teams.

What to do with all this information

Now on to the next question. Now that you have with all this information, how do you make the best use of it? You’ll notice that it’s valuable to both your marketing and sales team.

For your sales team:

  • Become involved earlier on in the buying cycle
    As mentioned earlier, most sales processes start without involving sales. Once it’s time for a salesperson to enter the game, they have no clue how the lead has researched your product, how they engaged in marketing activities and what they’re looking for. These are quite important insights for the sales team in order to make a compelling offer. With Leadexplorer, the sales team has access to these insights.
  • Qualify and assign the lead
    To quickly determine if the lead is qualified or not, you can look at the lead score. It’s based on their activity on your site and engagement. You can also go ahead and see what they searched for on your site, what pages they spent the most time on and even follow their exact steps on how they navigated on your site. If the lead looks interesting to you, you can assign it to yourself or to a colleague.
  • Influence the lead’s journey
    You might spot a lead that is interested and curious about you, but they might not be ready for a sales call just yet. Why not nudge them toward a piece of content to bring them further down the funnel or add them on Linkedin?
  • Be more relevant
    Planning to call and email some leads? Check out the companies in Leadexplorer first to see what their interested in and be more relevant in your conversation.
