    Love Your Leads
    Sammy James - Thursday, February 11, 2010
    Your internet leads need immediate attention and nurturing or you run the risk of losing their affection.

    In the spirit of Valentine's Day, we thought we would provide two rules that are essential to any successful lead relationship:

    Lead Love Rule #1
    Get to them fast, get to them first - We know 78% of leads who convert, will convert with the business that contacted them first.

    Lead Love Rule #2
    Don't give up - 40% of all leads will close eventually with consistent long term follow-up.

    Fill In The Blank
    From All Of Us - Friday, February 05, 2010
    Over 1,000 women, ages 25-35, employed in the U.S. were surveyed on their opinions relating to career success. Here is what they had to say...

    Accenture recently released a study, Millennial Women in the Workplace Success Index: Striving for Balance, conducted by Penn Schoen Berland that had some interesting findings.  
    • The vast majority of women surveyed identified two primary qualities as keys to workplace success - the professional and personal workplace balance and having a job where they can make a difference. The vast majority of women surveyed identified two primary qualities as keys to workplace success - the professional and personal workplace balance and having a job where they can make a difference.
    • 70% believe they will be successful and they identified their main motivations to be medical benefits (63%), flexible hours (50%) and training for professional advancement (37%).
    • When asked about the factors that affect their decision to accept a job, secure employment (65%) and work/personal life balance (49%) held the majority, while other factors such as opportunities for bonus (33%) and investment opportunities were not as high on the list.

    Catch Me If You Can
    From All Of Us - Friday, January 22, 2010
    You have a short window of opportunity when you receive an internet lead. You have to act fast and make the connection.

    Internet leads are a new breed of prospective customers. Their interest is either extremely well thought out and researched OR it is impulsive. Regardless, once they hit the"submit" button, it is up to you to catch their attention and get them on the phone.

    Accordingly, your internal lead response systems need to be streamlined and efficient. The secret to increased sales is not more leads - it is increased speed to lead.

    Get to them fast, get to them first

    Lead Response
    From All Of Us - Friday, January 15, 2010
    Over 1 million sales calls across 50 different companies by 1000 sales professionals have been analyzed. Here is what works...

    Dr. James Oldroyd of the Kellogg School of Management is probably the world’s greatest expert on the measurement of sales call results. In an interview with Geoffrey James, Dr. Oldroyd revealed some of his findings:
    • Always give priority to your newest leads. If you have a lead that is two hours old and one that just came in, focus on the one that just came in. If you do the opposite, you’ll always be fighting an uphill battle trying to reactivate leads that are already dead.
    • You are 4 times more likely to successfully qualify a lead if you call within 5 minutes than if you call between 5 and 10 minutes. You are 21 times more likely to qualify a lead if you call within 5 minutes than if you wait for 30 minutes.
    • If you want to optimize you need to measure what’s actually working, which means tracking your leads throughout the pipeline and then drawing conclusions based upon the patterns that emerge.

    Stand Out
    From All Of Us - Thursday, December 03, 2009
    If you have a Facebook Fan Page, you need a unique URL -

    Facebook Fan Pages help you build a community of "fans" of your product or service. When you first sign-up, you are given a very long URL, which can make promoting your page a challenge.

    Luckily, Facebook allows you to select a customized Fan Page URL (as with the personal pages). This helps with your visibility on search engines and with prospective fans. Please note that Facebook requires you have at least 25 fans before you can obtain your unique URL.

    Once you have 25 fans, go HERE and select 'Set a username for your Pages.'
