- Developed and consistently implemented a multi-touch sales system that incorporated the quote process.
- Used tracking system for leads from new and existing customers.
- Created quarterly campaigns to stay connected with and nurture warm leads – those that had a potential need, but didn’t buy earlier.
Within 8 months, the conversion rate on new leads increased from 11% to 27% – more than double – without discounting. By focusing on ideal prospects, turning down sales where appropriate, and consistently using the sales process, the average sale per customer increased 43% and overall revenue increased 22%.
