1st Contact How To Get More Sales

The other day I got a card from Dean Killingbeck. It had some great sales statistics. I also heard some of the same from national bestseller author of ‘The Ultimate Sales Machine’ and speaker of marketing, sales and business success Chet Holmes*. 

48% of sales people never follow up with a prospect

25% of sales people make a second contact and STOP

12% of sales people only make three contacts and STOP

Only 10% of sales people make more than three contacts!

2% of sales are made on the 1st contact

3% of sales are made on the 2nd contact

5% of sales are made on the 3rd contact

10% of sales are made on the 4th contact

Guess how many sales are made on the 5th contact!

  80% OF  SALES!


Yes, you read correctly – 80% of sales are made on the 5th contact by about 10% of sales people. Over 3/4 of sales people make only about 5% of all sales. 

So let me ask, what do you have –  2-5% of sales or 80% of sales?
