Tips to Re-engage with Dead leads

1. Acclimatize yourself with Homework

Do your homework before you begin re-engagement. Examine your previous talks and, if you took decent notes in your CRM, make use of them. Examine the social media accounts of your lead. Have they been writing on issues related to your product’s industry? If they have, this could signal that they are interested (a trigger), indicating that now is a good moment to contact them.

2. Begin by Testing the Water

Sending basic survey emails or online polls is another technique to contact previous leads. Ask yourself where you went wrong or right.
