Track Your Success
To accurately communicate your progress towards goals with employees, you must be tracking how well you are doing!
This is why tools like call tracking, digital attribution programs, and aggregate online review platforms are necessary for your business to really improve.
If you don’t know how you are doing, how can you improve? Thinking and knowing are two different things. You must track your goals to truly know if what you’re doing is propelling you towards your goals or if you are falling behind.
Repeat What’s Working, Work on What Isn’t
Once you are tracking your efforts and can clearly see if you are on track with, surpassing, or falling behind your goals, you can now take a step back and adjust.
Are there certain marketing pieces that are performing better than others? Re-allocate marketing dollars from under-performing ad sources that aren’t giving you great ROI to advertisements that are bringing in more leads. Don’t spend extra money – use your tracking reports to make better data-driven decisions.
Which call handlers have higher appointment conversion rates than others? See what they are doing well and use that to help train and coach call handlers that aren’t doing as well.
