Following up on leads is the key to increased sales

How often do you follow-up on every lead 5 times or more?

Close More Sales

Trying to grow your business? Did you realize that 80% of sales require 5 to 12 follow-ups with your potential customer? So it’s obvious that following up is the key to success. However, personally following up requires a significant amount of time!

You are not alone if you lack the time and perseverance to follow-up on every lead. It’s hard, if not impossible. If you are just guessing which ones to stay focused on, while others are left to wilt away, you are missing a huge opportunity. Let’s face it some leads are cold from the beginning and stay cold, but others start out that way and turn into great customers. It’s too hard to tell and too valuable an opportunity not to automate the process to achieve the best outcome.

What if you could automate your leads follow up process? You could use that automation to slowly convert your cold leads into brand new customers. This is where TickleTrain comes in. It puts you in control of automating your communications with prospective customers. Your leads can get a personalized communication from you as if you spent the time to type it yourself. These small nudges and various nurturing content, put you in front of prospective buyers without being a nuisance. And when they are ready to purchase, the top-of-mind awareness you’ve created and your diligent communications, will make the recipient think of you first and at the same time make them feel important. You will be chosen over competitors time and time again.

Did you know that only 5% of sales are made after the third contact.

It isn’t until the 5th or more contact, that the lead turns into a customer. And more surprising, over 50% of sales people never follow-up at all!

Follow-up with leads automatically with TickleTrain.

For instance, you may create a Tickle to be used for a certain product you sell. When you get the lead, just send an email like normal and include your special Tickle BCC address in the BCC field. This will set up a follow-up routine for you. The first email can be a “touching base” email to ask if they have any questions you can answer. You could also tell them that you will put some additional information together about the product and send that over. The following day, the “informational email” gets sent with some attachments and literature. Your next communication might come seven days later asking if they reviewed the literature you sent over. And so on. These small nudges and lead nurturing emails are easy to manage with complete control.
