Any idea what really happens to a prospect’s call when your community’s receptionist transfers them to sales and marketing?  If the family hears a voicemail message, they hang up without leaving any information 83% of the time.  

For the community in this Case Study, 37% of all inquiries came in after hours when the receptionist would transfer the call to voicemail.  Here’s how they fixed that problem AND generated $670,000 in annual revenue.

CASE STUDY:
MOVE-INS THAT STARTED WITH AFTER HOURS INQUIRIES

Any idea what really happens to a prospect’s call when your community’s receptionist transfers them to sales and marketing?  If the family hears a voicemail message, they hang up without leaving any information 83% of the time.  

For the community in this Case Study, 37% of all inquiries came in after hours when the receptionist would transfer the call to voicemail.  Here’s how they fixed that problem AND generated $670,000 in annual revenue.

How much time, effort and money should be spent providing sales support to families who make inquiries “after hours?” It’s a tough problem and here is some data that makes it even harder to wrestle with:

  • In 83% of the cases, when a receptionist transfers a call to the sales/marketing team, and there is no answer, the family will hang up and not leave a message. What they do next is move on to the next community.
  • If the family goes to the internet and clicks on the first link they see, the odds are high that they will land on a 3rd party referral site (APFM, Caring.com, etc.) who will then take that lead and spread it around to all of your competitors.
  • The first community that has a meaningful (sales/marketing) conversation with the family wins their business 84% of the time.
  • Having a meaningful conversation within 5-minutes increases move-in odds with a family by over 400%.
