How This Genius Sales Team Converts More Leads Using SMS Marketing

Let’s say your marketing strategy is pulling in the leads. Great, you’ve aced the first step, but now you need to implement a strategy that can convert these sales leads with as little overhead as possible, in as little time as possible. While some entrepreneurs use SMS marketing to generate leads, other teams are creatively using bulk texting for conversion.

As a Market Sales Manager at a large home improvement retailer, Robert Love’s sales team is tasked with converting lukewarm leads that are passed to his team when prospective customers contact the store to learn more about home improvement installation services or schedule a free in-home consultation. In the process of contacting these prospects and scheduling a consultation or providing an estimate, the sales team’s leads tend to go cold.

Robert’s solve needed to be automated and executable at a low cost since re-engaging cold or dead sales leads can be tougher. He discovered EZ Texting’s SMS marketing platform and promptly launched a series of bulk messaging campaigns to convert would-be buyers into paying customers. After just one month, he was able to increase his sales conversion rate by 6%, getting more than 50% of his dead sales leads to re-engage. Read the full sales case study about Robert to find out what SMS marketing tactics his sales team is using that helped him close $97K in new business.

"We have well over one thousand NYC buildings as our customers. The property superintendents which are onsite deal directly with heating units, and we supply heating oil to those units. In the winter months, the supers' schedules get very hectic. We know they can sometimes forget. So we weekly send them a text to check in. This way they can order direct in response and we follow up with the property owners or managers with the level reported by the super."
