Introduction --------------------------------------------------- Attracting consumers to your website is just one step in a successful online marketing plan. That’s because you don’t just want visitors to find your website. You want them to contact you to learn more about your business, products, and services. It’s at this moment in the consumer buying journey that website visitors convert into leads and move one step closer to making a purchase. But, how well do you handle your leads when they’ve decided to contact you via email, a contact form, or a phone call? Do you use lead management tools and best practices that can help you convert those leads into customers? By effectively managing and nurturing your leads at this stage in the consumer buying journey, you can turn more leads into customers. In fact, businesses that nurture new leads see up to 45 percent more lead generation ROI than businesses who do not use lead nurturing.1 Managing your leads doesn’t need to be a complicated process. With ReachEdge™, you get a marketing system that combines a smart website, lead management software, and a powerful mobile app — all to help you convert more leads into customers. This integrated lead management solution captures leads when they visit your site, builds your contact list, and helps you follow up with leads, so you lose fewer leads and gain more customers. Take a look at some of today’s top lead management best practices and see how ReachEdge can help you better manage your leads and turn them into customers. Source: 1. Marketing Sherpa

Build Your Contact List ---------------------------------------------- One of the smartest things you can do when a new lead contacts you (via email, contact form, or phone call) is to add their information to a contact list. This includes details like their name, phone number, email, product interest, and whether they’re an active or long-term lead. This list gives you a way to reach back out to your contacts with specific information about the product or service they’re interested in. It also enables you to contact them at a later date with helpful tips, offers and specials, announcements, and more. Today, some businesses build their contact list manually whenever a new prospect contacts them. How are you building your list? Here’s How Different Options Stack Up: Rolodex • Familiar format for many office managers • Paper-based and not scalable • Time-consuming system • Hard to keep fresh and updated John Smith (555) 555-5555 Convert More Leads Into Customers with the Power of Lead Management

Convert More Leads Into Customers with the Power of Lead Management Track the Marketing Source ------------------------------------------------ Whenever a new prospect contacts you, an important step is to record the advertising and marketing sources (such as online ads, direct mail, billboards, radio, T.V. ads, etc.) that directed them to you. In order to know how consumers are learning about your business online, you can use tactics like call tracking, call recording, and website URL tracking. Monitoring and analyzing the contacts you get from social media pages is also important. How are you tracking the marketing sources of your contacts? Here Are the Pros & Cons of Some Common Methods: Asking for Source Directly • Conversational approach builds rapport with leads • Can leverage phone calls, website forms, and onboarding documents • Manual process often results in poor, inconsistent data • Employees often forget to ask for lead source • Prospects can be influenced by multiple sources, which makes tracking specific sources difficult

Convert More Leads Into Customers with the Power of Lead Management Respond to Calls & Emails ASAP ---------------------------------------------- Many consumers call you to ask about products or services, to get a price quote, or better yet, to book an appointment. But when you aren’t able to answer these calls, they may go to a voicemail system or answering service that doesn’t immediately provide the information your prospects are looking for. While answering every phone call promptly is the ideal scenario for any business, there might be times when you can’t always answer the phone or you miss a call. Other times, consumers may send an email or fill out a form on your website. Don’t leave those contacts hanging; the sooner you respond, the better. How are you responding to calls and emails? See How Your Process Stacks Up: Source: 2. LeadResponseManagement.org 5 Minutes Respond Quickly • Check voice messages and call leads back as soon as possible, because consumers often choose the company who responds back to them first. • Follow up with leads within the first hour they’ve contacted you. If you don’t, the chances of you ever getting back to them drops 10 times.2

  • Convert More Leads Into Customers with the Power of Lead Management Share this ebookSubscribe to our blog 10 © 2014 ReachLocal, Inc. All Rights Reserved. REACHLOCAL® is a registered trademark. Convert More Leads Into Customers with the Power of Lead Management Nurture Long-Term Leads -------------------------------------------- Once you’ve classified new leads based on their interest and stage in the consumer buying journey, it’s important to continually follow up with those who haven’t yet made a purchase. This is especially true in industries with longer lead times, such as home remodelers or car dealers. This is the juncture to start sending compelling emails with content like customer testimonials, before and after pictures of your work, and special offers and promotions that encourage your leads to buy. But regularly nurturing your leads with these messages can be challenging unless you use a system that helps automate the process for you. Designed to help drive customer conversions, ReachEdge’s smart technology sends follow-up emails to your leads based on the content and schedule that you determine in the system. By leveraging this technology to nurture your leads, you can stay top of mind with ease and convince them to follow through with a purchase. So, what kinds of messages should you use in your lead nurturing? Include messages that provide valuable information to your leads about the types of products and services you offer as well as those that build confidence with your leads by showcasing customer results. Don’t be aggressive or overly “sales-y” in lead nurturing emails, but focus on providing content that will educate, inform, and help your leads.

Convert More Leads Into Customers with the Power of Lead Management --------------------------- IMMEDIATE RESPONSE EMAILS------------------------------ Immediate response emails are those you send right after a lead contacts you from your website. These automated emails can contain messages about your business, services, or products, but they mainly serve to let prospects know that you received their message and are ready to listen and help them in their purchasing decision. The following are examples of immediate response emails that our ReachEdge clients use in automated follow up. THANK YOU EMAILS One of the easiest types of immediate response emails you can send is a simple thank you email. It conveys that someone from your business will follow up with your lead within a specific time frame in order to discuss their interests or needs, schedule an appointment or provide an estimate.

Convert More Leads Into Customers with the Power of Lead Management --------------------------- IMMEDIATE RESPONSE EMAILS------------------------------ ABOUT US EMAILS About us emails provide a great opportunity to build trust in your business with your potential customers. For example, was your business started by a great-grandparent and passed down throughout generations? Do you have award-winning service or special certificates that your competitors don’t? Think about your company’s strengths or unique aspects and then share this information with your prospects. You’ll begin to build value and trust with prospects as you differentiate your business from your competitors, so a prospect is more likely to choose your business when they are ready to buy.

Convert More Leads Into Customers with the Power of Lead Management ------------------------------------VALUE-ADDED EMAILS-------------------------------------- As you begin to nurture your leads across the sales cycle, providing them with useful content helps build your relationship with them. These emails may feature educational tips, how-to guides, video demonstrations, discounts, coupons, and more. The goal is to give your leads a way to experience the value of your company first-hand so they can gain more confidence and trust in your business. Here are two small business examples: EDUCATIONAL EMAILS Educational emails containing demonstration videos, industry articles, or how-to content help your leads to learn more about your business and industry while helping you to build trust with these leads. Providing leads with a way to learn more about your product or service is an excellent way to build trust with them. For example, if you already use videos as part of your marketing or on your website, make sure to feature them in your emails with an image and a link to the video on your website or YouTube. These emails shouldn’t be overly promotional but instead focus on providing valuable information to your prospect.

Convert More Leads Into Customers with the Power of Lead Management Powerful Lead Management: Best Practices Checklist --------------------------------------------------- Track the Marketing Source Knowing where your leads are coming from, such as online ads, organic traffic, or social media, helps you to know how well your marketing is working. This information provides insights regarding your budget dollars and whether or not they are being spent on the correct marketing channels for your business. RespondtoCalls&EmailsASAP Consumers often choose the business that follows up first because it shows them the business is ready to help them with their needs. Plus, quick follow up gives you the chance to help your leads by providing them with the information they are seeking so they want to use your business. Nurture Long-Term Leads One of the best ways to turn leads into customers is to ensure they don’t forget about you! By providing consistent, relevant, and helpful information to your leads via email, you can continue to build your relationship with your leads. Then when the time comes for them to make a purchasing decision, you’ll have a better chance of being the company they choose. Build Your Contact List Ensure you collect all of the relevant information about your leads: name, email, address, and phone number so you can follow up with them. Also, note if they are a short- or long-term lead; by designating which type of lead they are, you can provide the appropriate type of follow-up.
