Lead generation is a marketing term used, often in Internet marketing, to describe the generation of consumer interest or inquiry into products or services of a business. Leads can be generated for a variety of purposes; for example: list building, e-newsletter list acquisition or for winning customers. There are many tactical methods for generating leads. These methods typically fall under the umbrella of advertising, but may also include non-paid sources such as organic search engine results or referrals from existing customers. Businesses strive to generate 'quality' leads. Quality is usually determined by the propensity of the inquirer to take the next action towards a purchase.
A presence on the Internet, along with effective search engine optimization, is utilized by many companies in service industries to generate leads. Companies also heavily rely on referrals,telemarketers, and advertisements to generate leads.
Some use a phony local address to fool the search algorithm, as is liberal posting of the lead generator's NAP, name, address and phone number, on the internet. The practice is used in other industries such as auto glass replacement, roofing, or carpeting. Similar practices are used in Yellow Pages ads as well.

They are phone banks, typically set up in far-off places, often in other countries. Call them and they'll dispatch a locksmith."
