When your business gets a new lead or enquiry
– how long does it take you to get back to them?
An hour? A day? A week?!
Here are some eye-watering statistics:
If you call a lead within 10 minutes of them enquiring
with you (submitting the form/requesting the call etc) –
you have a 92% chance of getting hold of them – AND
your conversion rate will typically be double the norm.
If you call a lead just 30 minutes after the enquiry, that
drops to 65%.
If you wait two hours (which most people would
consider to be a great result!), you’re down to a 39%
chance of them ever answering the phone and your
conversion rate is where it’s at now.
Imagine how low the number drops after just one day
or even a week… (it’s scary!).
The SPEED of your follow up will directly impact the number of sales you make.
Leads and enquiries have a ‘half-life’. Their value diminishes – by the minute!
Your conversion rates will reduce with every hour that you sit on a lead before reaching out/responding to it.
So get your team on standby – because you want to be sure you’re following up with leads in those Golden 10 minutes…
