#1 Reason Your Leads Aren’t Converting Into Clients

While leads are immensely valuable to your business and overall marketing strategy; if your leads aren’t converting into sales or even prospects, you’re doing something wrong.

Most marketing companies and ‘old school’ sales training focus on:

  • how quickly you called (after you got their info)
  • the # of times you’ve called the lead
  • whether you left a message or hung up
  • what time of day you contacted the lead
  • or if you tried them from 7 different phone numbers
 

Don’t get me wrong.

Some of these metrics and strategies are helpful. 

Most often though, what really matters is overlooked.

LEADS ARE PEOPLE

Leads Aren't Converting?

If you are interacting with them as anything other than HUMAN beings (with lives), you will NOT turn them into clients.

This obvious fact may seem rudimentary, but after being a top producer and lead manager for more than 13 years, I’ve consistently seen salespeople neglect this.

In today’s high tech world and rapidly evolving financial industry, you must adapt to the advancements…

Buuut KEEP the human aspect of your business.

Your leads don’t want to be treated like a number, called 15 times in a week or pressured into making a decision today.

We love to buy, but we hate to be sold to.

This hasn’t changed.

Social media, and technology like scheduling apps or voice messaging, won’t replace you being likable and trustworthy.

While the above tools help your business be more efficient and help you communicate; you still have to be someone they trust with their money. Plain and simple.

How do you become likable?

How do you breed trust?

This will vary from client to client and could be another post altogether.

Here are some quick qualities and tips for you:
  1. Confidence (in yourself/product/etc.), not arrogance.
  2. Consistent with your actions/words.
  3. Value your prospect’s time.
  4. Listen to their concerns, and show a genuine interest (not just about converting them into a sale).
 

Think about it for a second.

How did you last make a buying decision

Did you buy from the salesperson that used a sneaky approach?

Called you 15 times? ?

Interrupted your dinner and family time, calling you ‘after work hours‘.

Or did you buy from the one that was most competent and compassionate.

The salesperson concerned with your goals, but was also good at their job.

This isn’t rocket science.

BUT it is a combination of human science and sales-skill.

People buy from people they like and trust.

If they don’t like you, they will not trust you (or buy from you). đź¤·

Period.
