Michael Falato, founder of Full Throttle Falato Leads, discusses his lead gen automation business, which has grown rapidly over the past few years. Falato shares that most companies he worked for hired recent college graduates who didn't know how to do lead generation properly. He found best-of-breed technologies and solutions to build a repeatable and scalable approach to do top-of-funnel work. He believes that sales is a numbers game, and focusing on the right message for the right people is crucial. Falato emphasizes that businesses owners should not try to do everything themselves and need to either hire people or find a solution that takes over monotonous tasks. Falato also talks about a mistake he made in the past with email marketing and how he learned from his mistakes.
