Introducing Einstein Lead Scoring

At last, Pepper takes a breath. You fill her in on your project to add AI to Honeydew’s secret sauce. You tell her that Sales Cloud Einstein includes Einstein Lead Scoring. This feature applies the power of AI to analyze your history of lead conversions and find the true patterns in those conversions—patterns you probably had no idea existed. And because Sales Cloud Einstein already understands the format of your lead and opportunity data, it can start analyzing and finding patterns almost as soon as you turn it on.

Pepper’s interest is piqued. She asks, “So what does Einstein Lead Scoring do once it finds the patterns?”

You explain that Einstein Lead Scoring gives each lead a score based on how well it matches your company’s particular lead conversion patterns. The higher the score, the hotter the lead. All your sales reps have to do is sort their leads by Score and start at the top of the list.

Einstein Lead Scoring

Lead scores in a typical leads list view (1), along with the reasons behind the score (2). The lock (3) shows that the lead score is read-only.

Pepper is still a bit skeptical. She wants to know how her sales reps will be convinced that they can trust the scores. You tell her that Einstein Lead Scoring shows you exactly which details about each lead have the greatest effect on its score. So your sales reps can see the patterns that have been hiding in your data all along. These are the real insights.

Lead scores and their predictive factors are visible not just in list views, but also on detail pages. So the information stays handy whether reps are sorting leads or getting ready to make a call or send an email.

Lead Scoring

The Einstein component on a lead detail page. Each score includes the field values that affect the score most (1).

As your team continues to convert more leads over time, Einstein Lead Scoring constantly adjusts its analysis in order to discover any new patterns that emerge.

Pepper starts wondering if you can measure the overall impact of lead scoring on the business. Can you easily tell whether leads with high scores are actually converting at a higher rate? You love being able to grant her every wish. You tell her that Einstein Lead Scoring includes both an operational dashboard and an Einstein Analytics dashboard with reports that show you your conversion rates by lead score and average lead score by lead source. And you can even see the distribution of lead scores among your converted and lost leads. So it’s easy to see how lead scores are correlating to your bottom line.

Pepper is impressed. She’s starting to think Einstein Lead Scoring can really spice up her teams’ process and bottom line. Now she wants to know what else Sales Cloud Einstein can contribute to her tool box. Can Einstein help her team even after they’ve converted a lead?
