The extensive solutions they provide have brought in long-term clients and have resulted to high ROI for the business. However, recent years have seen meager production of new business deals due to some challenges that were caused by the following:
- The Client’s email marketing strategy that sends out catalogs to prospects via regular email accounts have become less effective, for reasons the Client was not certain of. The percentage of replies decreased from 8-10% to 5-7% in the last two years.
- Since the catalogs were hardly opened or read by target prospects, the Q&As it contained that were supposed to initially probe the prospect’s concerns have become less usable which slowed down the process of identifying as to whether the target needs custom-built storefront or requires a minor change. Such data is
significant in customizing the best solution for the prospect.
- The preceding root causes bore a bigger problem which impacted the whole prospecting process of the business – fewer client conversations.
The Client opened themselves to options that could possibly address these issues and outsourcing to a lead generation provider came up as the top and most preferred over others like buying/renting lists and adding in-house staff to multiply the job.
