RESEARCH STUDY OVERVIEW
As the pioneer in lead response management technologies, InsideSales.com, hired an independent research company, Incoho, to measure response times to inquiries made while on Web sites of some of the top Alexa-ranked companies. Inquiries were made on 526 Web sites from 469 separate companies through Web-based forms and all responses were tracked whether they came by email or telephone. The information that was input included fictional email addresses and phone numbers unique to this study.
The inquiries were made in 2008 prior to the Omniture Summit 2007 by Incoho, a data research firm from Ottawa, Quebec, Canada. Inquiries were made using fictional identities and contact information and were input five different times on each Web page. Researchers were instructed never to reply to responses, but merely to gather the exact date and time of each response made as well as whether they were made by email or phone format.

WHAT IS LEAD RESPONSE MANAGEMENT?
InsideSales.com has been at the forefront of research in the area of Lead Response Management since it partnered with Dr. James Oldroyd of the Sloan School of Management at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in 2007 in a study that released at MarketingSherpa's B-to-B Demand Generation Summit 2007.
The term Lead Response Management (LRM) describes where an online or offline inquiry is responded to in order to optimize contact and qualification rates. LRM is gaining attention because marketers generate leads and hand them off to salespeople to typically have them sit for hours or days and only get attempted a few times.
Lead Response Management is a subset of Lead Management which also includes Demand Generation, Lead Conversion, and Sales Qualification.
The study of Lead Response Management includes:
