Two-Dimensional Lead Scoring made simple in HubSpot

Lead scoring has long been a crucial component of the sales and marketing process, helping businesses prioritize and focus their efforts on the most promising leads. However, traditional lead scoring methods often fall short in providing a comprehensive view of a lead's potential.

Traditional lead scoring has been a reliable tool for sales and marketing teams to identify and prioritise leads based on specific criteria. However, as customer data becomes more readily available and complex, a more nuanced approach is necessary.


The need for Two-Dimensional Lead Scoring

The limitations of traditional lead scoring have become increasingly apparent. It often fails to differentiate between leads who are highly engaged but not an ideal fit for the product and those who might be a perfect fit but have shown minimal engagement. So Two-Dimensional Lead Scoring comes to address this gap.


Traditional Lead Scoring

Traditional scoring typically relies on one dimension, often behavioral data alone. Behavioral scoring assesses a lead's engagement with a company's digital assets, such as:

  • Website visits
  • Email opens
  • Content downloads

This approach is valuable but may miss vital information about a lead's fit for a product or service. Or the behavioural data and the demographic data is combined in one single number which makes it hard for the sales team to see immediately where to focus on this specific lead. This costs time and money.




Two-Dimensional Lead Scoring is an innovative method that considers both behavioural and demographic data when evaluating leads. By combining these two dimensions, businesses gain a more comprehensive view of their potential customers, enabling more precise targeting and personalized engagement.

The system assesses leads based on two primary factors: their alignment with your ideal customer profile and their interactions and behaviors with the brand. Behavioural “fit” is rated on a scale from 1 (indicating high activity) to 4 (reflecting low activity), while demographic “fit” is represented using letters, with “A” (closest to your ICP) and “D” (farthest) for evaluation.
