When a consumer visits your website and then contacts you for the first time via web form, email, or phone call, you’ve cleared a crucial hurdle in getting a new lead. But you’re also on the time clock to convert that lead into a customer. If you don’t, they might forget about you and contact your competitors instead.
So, if you do only one thing with your leads, it’s this: follow up with them regularly via phone and with lead nurturing emails over the course of the sales cycle.
Staying in front of new leads with timely, relevant information ensures that your company stays top of mind, so that when the time comes to make a purchase decision, they’re more likely to choose your business.
But as a busy business owner, you might find you can’t always provide the quick and consistent follow up that’s needed because you’re focused on running other areas of your business. This is where marketing automation or lead nurturing software can help you continuously follow up with your leads.
The automated reminders and lead nurturing built into ReachEdgeTM lead conversion software work to ensure you’re providing the follow up your contacts and leads need to ultimately become customers. Here are a few ways ReachEdge can help you to follow up:
