Let’s start with how important it is to respond as quickly as possible to any email enquiry received by your sales agents.
According to research, sales leads have a very short lifespan, which means that there is only a window of between 5 – 30 minutes in which to convert a lead into a sale.
Why is the life of a lead or enquiry so short? It’s really quite simple to understand this when you consider that we live in an age of instant gratification.
Potential customers aren’t willing to wait too long for a response to their enquiry before moving on to the competition, making it essential for you to be first out of the gate with your response times.
Once you know what the email response times are, you’ll no doubt find out where many leads are often lost, somewhere between being received and then responded to.
Since email correspondence is the main form of communication for any business today, every lead or enquiry needs to be treated as a potential sale.
Prompt email responses also play an important role in building up a reputation for service excellence, which in turn become recommendations that bring in new business. Recommendations are the best in free advertising for any business.
Timetoreply has developed software that gives you as complete an overview as possible of all emails coming in and going out of your business.
