The Report Manager Stats are familiar since they are essentially the same as the ones found in the Dashboard's Snapshot above except you are able to filter the results for specified campaigns, pages, priorities, status and time periods.
Lead Status' can be used to record what phase of your Lead Nurturing campaign a Lead is currently add, you can create yoru own statuses which fit your campaigns or sales cycles.
It is important to understand that there are 3 different types of Status'
Lead Status Types
- The Status that is set for a New Lead in a specified campaign upon capturing the lead
- A Status that is assigned to a Lead in a specified campaign by a sales agent to record where the lead currently fits in the lead nurturing campaign
- The Status that is assigned to a Lead in a specified campaign at the end of the campaign denoting the Final Conversion/Goal Completion
- When a Lead is assigned the Final Status in a campaign, this denotes that the Goal has been Completed and the campaign will end for this Lead. No further lead nurturing emails will be sent to the Lead.
Lead Priorities do not affect the automatic Lead Nurturing Campaign
Lead Priorities are often used to denotes the Lead's position in the Sales Cycle which may include the Funnel but also additional customer service or sales cycles which may take place after the Goal Completion/Final Conversion
