One of the fastest ways to generate sales quickly is to improve your conversion rate from leads to paying customers.
As leads and contacts are made, your #1 goal is to convert that lead to a paying customer as soon as possible.
Otherwise, your lead list can become a nuisance and a labor-intensive list of names that may have no interest in what you are offering.
Once someone becomes a lukewarm lead, it is essential to warm them up to become a hot prospect and then a loyal customer.
For example, if someone walks into a party and doesn’t know anyone, they are inclined to turn around and leave.
But a good host or hostess knows how to spot them, introduce them, show them around, and help them enjoy themselves.
The same holds for businesses that are converting strangers into loyal customers.
Conversion requires getting to know the person, understanding their wants and needs, and then fulfilling those in a mutually beneficial way by helping the customer while giving profit to the enterprise.
There are many conversion strategies and techniques. These can be systemized so that once a new contact enters the leads database, they are automatically cultivated and nurtured to become a paying client.
For instance, if your current conversion rate is 20% for every 100 contacts or leads, that translates into 20 new customers a month.
If you just boost conversions to 30%, that represents a 50% increase.
Now imagine, if you were to convert 40% instead of 20%, then your customer base has effectively doubled without spending any additional money on marketing or advertising.
Focusing on converting more leads into paying customers as soon as possible and simply improving your sales skills will dramatically increase sales and profits.
