How to Qualify Leads and Increase Your Overall Sales Revenue


Why the Odoo CRM Slack Module will Help You Convert Leads into Sales


Any salesperson can now know immediately when a new lead is in their CRM by using the Odoo CRM Slack module because you will receive a notification in your Slack app.

When someone visits your website and fills out a contact form, that action will create a lead in your CRM. However, you can’t predict when that will happen. You have to check your CRM system in order to see if you have new contacts from potential customers.

Sure, you look at it from time to time to see if any new leads pop up or to follow up on something. But, sometimes you simply forget or have other tasks that need your full attention, and just like that, a new fresh lead turns into a months-old lead. It might not happen that often, but wouldn’t you rather have pursued that lead? See where it could, well, lead you?

Do you know how much losing a lead will cost you? Are you aware of what it means?

  • Lost sales.
  • An opportunity for your competitors.
  • Lost feedback.
  • The start of a bad reputation. Someone who is not satisfied with you will gladly tell anyone who listens. In detail. And on social media so everyone can see it, forever.

Businesses struggle to increase lead conversion, yet a study shows that they waste about 71% of their leads. The longer you wait, it less likely it becomes for you to actually make the call.

  • The odds of calling to contact a lead decrease by over 10 times in the 1st hour.

  • The odds of calling to qualify a lead decrease by over 6 times in the 1st hour.

  • After 20 hours every additional dial your salespeople make actually hurts your ability to make contact to qualify a lead.

  • The odds of contacting a lead if called within 5 minutes are 100 times higher versus 30 minutes.

  • The odds of qualifying a lead if called within 5 minutes are 21 times higher versus 30 minutes.

Customer acquisition is a painful, costly activity. So if you’re getting leads, why are you wasting them? If you could increase the number of qualified leads, how much would that affect your overall sales revenue?

The study also shows the benefits of replying as soon as the lead arrives - by contacting them immediately, people are impressed by your speed and have “an emotional response that built trust”. When you reply immediately, you’re still on their mind and even better, they’re probably still by the computer or phone, so your chances of reaching them increase.
