Predictive Scoring - Behavior | Infer

Behavior Scoring

Infer’s behavioral models mine the full spectrum of activity data inside your marketing automation platform to help you identify which prospects are in market and ready to buy.

How Behavior Scoring Works

Connect To Your Databases

Connect Infer to your Marketing Automation Platform and CRM with a live API connection.

Enrich Your Data

We enrich your data with thousands of data points from our proprietary database of firmographic, demographic and technographic intelligence on more than 19 million companies and 42 million prospects. Take each record from name, email and phone number to a fully fleshed-out profile including everything from company size to the technology they use.

Use Machine Learning to Find Patterns

Then Infer uses advanced machine learning to discover hidden patterns within your enriched data to see which prospects are ready to buy.

Develop Your Roadmap

Infer combines the two models into a matrix that gives you a perfect roadmap for your sales team. No more guessing about who to call next or ignoring good leads that are stuck in nurture.

Deploy Across Your Stack

Each lead’s score is instantly uploaded into your CRM or Marketing Automation Platform so sales and marketing teams can start acting on that intelligence immediately.

The Science Of Behavior Modeling

Instead of manually adding points for a given action, Infer’s behavioral scoring models use powerful machine learning to mine the full spectrum of activity data inside your marketing automation platform and assign a predictive value to every action your prospects are taking.



Your model can accurately predict which prospects will convert in the next three weeks and which will require more nurture before they’re ready to buy.

Predictive vs. Traditional Lead Scoring

Traditional lead scoring strings together a series of best guesses about who your buyer is and how to know when they’re in-market. Infer uses machine learning to answer those questions with uncanny accuracy.

Here’s how we’re different:

  • Traditional Lead Scoring

    Based on a set of best guesses

    Their Model
    • Manually defined rules based on gut instinct and intuition

    • Scores based on a small subset of the activity in your marketing automation platform

    • Not statistically significant

    • Rolls up a broad set of behaviors, only focusing on manually input positive and negative activities

    • Limited to the conditional rules set by the user

    • Doesn’t discount score for inactivity

  • The Infer Method

    Based on advanced predictive intelligence

    Our Model
