If you are intending on running a special via online sales, be sure to know how to improve your chances on closing a lead into a sale.

This can be done through SEO, Google Ads, Google My Business Listings, Social Media and other online methods.

It’s not rocket science! A customer will typically try to get around 3 quotations before deciding who to buy from. Make sure you at least have a chance of generating a sale by following 3 basic principals.

  1. Initial Response.
    If someone contacts you via email or a contact form on your website, make sure you have an auto responder setup with some kind of response with your contact details. This means they immediately get a response and know who to talk to.
    One step closer to closing the sale!
  2. Phone The Customer Immediately!
    Pick up the phone and phone the customer immediately! They want to talk to you, they have come to you to buy something from you. If you don’t call them, you are not actually that interested in closing the sale and they can feel it within an hour of not having heard from anyone.
  3. Same Day Quote / Invoice.
    Do your best to send the customer the quotation / invoice they are looking for on the same day of the enquiry. The sooner the better your chances of closing the sale.
