Why is Average Lead Score important?
It becomes increasingly important as your company scales as you'll want to ensure that you're spending your time efficiently. Imagine you have 10,000 users that have signed up for your product or service but only 10 sales reps.

Lead scoring empowers your team to work smarter, not harder, and helps teams grow revenue at scale.
