The Golden 10 Minutes…

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…
