What is Demand Generation?

Demand generation is the art of making people want what you have, even if they didn’t know they wanted it until you told them. It’s a marketing strategy that focuses on creating awareness and interest in a product or service among a target audience. The goal of demand generation is to get potential customers to think about your product or service and to see how it can solve their problems.

One of the ways in which Demand can be generated is through educational blogs and informative resources that can help your prospective customer with the solution they are seeking.

Is Demand Generation the same as Lead Generation?

No, demand generation and lead generation are not the same.
While demand generation is the process of creating awareness and interest in your products or services among your target audience, lead generation identifies and qualifies potential customers who are likely to be interested in your products or services. In a sales funnel, lead generation is a later stage to demand generation. Check the figure below.
