Lead411 Study: Increase sales by 86.41%

Before Lead411 I co-founded an IT recruiting firm based in California called BlueChip Resources.   My primary task was to find tech companies to use our recruiting and staffing solutions.  After prospecting a few months I noticed a pattern with the companies that signed with us VS. the ones that didn’t. 80-90% of the companies who needed our services were really booming… they had raised VC financing, opened a new office, hired a new CTO, etc.  Of course, I changed my process and only pitched to these hot companies.  This made my close ratio go up about 200% to 400%. This is how Lead411 was created.  I knew that this was a method that everyone should use.  It makes sense if you think about.  If a company is flat or going downhill they normally tighten their purse strings.  The opposite is true for a fast growing company.

We recently sent a survey out to our customers to find out the ROI they get from targeting companies using our news events.  Here are the results.

Study: Save 1.5 hours a day

You want more time during your day… So do we! If you are a sales pro and any professional that is in charge of getting new customers we know that you spend A LOT of time researching prospects, finding contacts, deciphering email formats, etc. But how much time do you really spend on sales research? We decided to do a survey of our current clients to find out how much time they currently spend on sales research and how much time they previously used to spend before joining Lead411. Here are the findings…

#1. On Average our customers USED to spend 2 hours & 56 minutes a day on sales research.

before

#2. On Average our customers NOW spend 1 hour 19 minutes a day on sales research.

after

So, on average, each one of our customers saves over 1.5 hours each day on sales research. While that is definitely a strong amount of time savings our goal @ Lead411 is to make YOUR research time even shorter. The new data/features coming over the next few months should really help. In addition, please make any data and feature requests when you can.
