In this episode, we're highlighting one of the remarkable capabilities of sales systems, tracking client and prospect interactions. As we get into this, some of you might think it sounds a bit big brother ish and you're not wrong, but tracking and using information about interactions. allows you to consistently provide an exceptional experience, even before prospects decide to become paying clients. You see, when going through the sales process without using these capabilities of a fully integrated system, it often feels like we're shooting in the dark. We're left guessing, did they open the email? Did they look at the website? Are they even aware of what we do? What exactly are they looking for? A fully integrated sales system eliminates the guesswork and hassle. It enables us to track and monitor where prospects are interacting with our brand. This, in turn, empowers us to serve up the right information at the right time. The value of it is that no touchpoint stands alone. Everything is interconnected. Think about it. When a potential client is considering a service, they're likely scouring numerous platforms, from websites to Instagram to email. They might download a resource. Make a phone call, or send a text. Without insights into their interactions across these different channels, we're only seeing part of the puzzle, and it's hard to interpret their intentions. Sales systems not only build on what we've discussed in previous episodes, like scheduling links and track meetings and email integration for message tracking, but they also seamlessly integrate with other aspects of your online presence, including your website and email marketing. Imagine this. A prospect joins your email list by downloading a freebie and later clicks through to your blog posts. Still, they hesitate to take the next step. The sales system tracks these interactions, which means you can now assign scores or To their lead indicating their readiness to make a decision whether they're marketing qualified or sales qualified This information helps you allocate your time and energy wisely instead of casting a wide net You can concentrate on the most qualified leads you tailor your approach to nurture those who aren't quite ready to take the plunge The true potential here lies in the ability to offer prospects an exceptional experience. The right information reaches them at precisely the right moment. For instance, if a prospect has clicked through four pages on your website, but hasn't scheduled a meeting yet, you can send them an email saying, Did you know we offer free consultations? It's all about guiding them through their journey effectively. Now let's break down how to embark on this journey, and yes, I admit, it can seem complex, but there is a simple way to start. First, ensure that all your systems are integrated and communicating. If you're using a CRM like ActiveCampaign or HubSpot, make sure the tracking code is properly placed on your website. These integrations are critical because nothing else works without them. Alright, next, define your sales funnel. Outline the specific steps a person will take to progress in the sales process with your business. You need this information so you can understand what actions fit with which part of the sales process. Okay, once you've established this clear path, you can begin scoring leads within your system. Set up rules and criteria. For instance, a lead receives 10 points if they've opened the last two emails and visited your website within the last 30 days. And here's the big payoff. You can also trigger actions based on those scores. For example, when a lead reaches a certain score, A salesperson can get notified or the lead can automatically receive a special invitation. The possibilities are almost endless. When these pieces are in place, prospects and leads don't have to work hard to engage with you. You're there for them at the right time with the right information. This streamlined approach not only improves the customer experience, but also accelerates the conversion of leads and ultimately leads to more profitability with less effort.
