If A Manufacturer Gives You A Lead, How Loyal Do You Remain To That Manufacturer For That Opportunity?

If a manufacturer gives you a lead, how loyal do you remain to that manufacturer for that opportunity?

I have had 2 leads and stayed loyal to the manufacturer. We didn't close either deal because it was like selling trying to sell a Rolls Royce to someone with a Chevy budget.

Do you at some point do you say, they are never going to buy this, let's suggest something they can afford?
