We use the BANT framework for basic customer qualification. Try to make sure that during the qualification stage, you get to these answers:
B = Budget
A = Authority
N = Need
T = Timeframe
We have a few key targets
Well funded fast growing startups that have large requirements in business processes, branding, and technology.
Established businesses that are looking to modernize their organization and improve efficiency.
If we are seeking vendors for particular work, and a current prospect offers the service, we should prioritize them in our RFP if they are a good match.
