Leads: How fast do you need to respond?

Recent in-depth study, conducted by Xant, examined over 55 million sales activities on 5.7 million inbound leads at 400+ companies and found that 57.1% of first call attempts occur after more than a week. Also, conversion rates drop by 8X after just 5 minutes. That’s a lot of missed revenue.

Strike the while the iron is hot. only .1% of the leads examined had responses by sellers within the first five minutes of the inquiry. That's right...only .1%!

Reps are missing sales ready leads - Of the 5.7 million leads Xant reviewed, only 23% of them ever received even a single contact attempt from a rep, which means 77% of leads never get touched, except by your marketing automation tool.

Engage leads in minutes, not days....Conversion rates were 8X higher when the rep attempted to make contact within 5 minutes vs waiting 6 minutes or more.
