It’s an exciting time when your business has loads of leads coming in, with so many potential clients looking to do business with you. They want to know all about you and you are more than happy to tell them everything you know. But that excitement quickly begins to drain away when you realise that the vast majority of these leads are not committing, having wasted your time. That it is why you need a lead management system to help you keep track of all your leads, and a few tricks to help improve the quality of your leads.

Quality over Quantity

Problem:

You may think that your business is growing because you are bringing in lots of leads, but most of these are not interested in your product or service and so you are actually wasting time on low quality leads. More often than not the main cause for this is that you are marketing to the wrong people.

Solution:

Firstly, get a lead management system. With a quality lead management system you will be able to track where your leads are coming from, which will help you to determine where your higher-value leads are coming from. Once you know which leads are more valuable to your business you can adjust your targeting to focus on those demographics and areas that are producing quality leads, while avoiding those which generate fruitless leads. You may start generating fewer leads, but your business will do better thanks to consistently bringing in better quality leads.

Assign leads to the correct salespeople

Problem:

Too many businesses leave their sales people to take on all aspects of the sales process. They are expected to find the leads, contact them, and convert them. But these salespeople often have so much work to do and so many leads to consider that more than a few slip through the cracks and end up forgotten and lost.

Solution:

With a quality lead management system you can ensure that leads are automatically assigned to salespeople. So every lead goes somewhere and is thus not wasted – any wasted lead can be considered poor quality, because it could likely generate negative reviews. Also, you can improve on the quality of your leads by assigning specific sales agents to certain sources, especially if you know they have an affinity with a certain demographic which could help to convert those leads with greater ease.

Improve your ROI (Return on Investment)

Problem:

If you invest money in something, you do so expecting returns. In line with the issue of quality over quantity, you need to be aware of which products or services are generating the greatest value for you. Investing in something you are uncertain about or which isn’t bringing in good business is a waste of time and resources.

Solution:

By tracking the values and sources of your leads with lead management systems you will be able to see which investments are generating better returns. From there you can once again focus on targeting your marketing to capitalise on quality areas, all the while tracking your leads to measure your ROI.

The benefits of using a lead management system to boost the quality of both your leads and ROI are obvious, but of course you would prefer to test the value of such a system for yourself.
