5. To respond to the lead, click the + icon to the left of the response grid at the bottom of the Lead Detail page. If no + icon appears, that lead has likely been closed or the deadline has passed. Contact the Visit Fairfax sales manager associated with each lead with any questions about the content/dates. Note: Visit Fairfax appreciates if you can respond to each lead, even if you are not able to bid on it.
