Shocking Follow up Stats on Nurturing You Need to know (to increase your sales conversions)

This past week I had a private coaching client of mine ask me to do a training on email marketing follow up stats and how it relates to conversions, so I did a little digging.

It didn’t take me long to stumble upon this mother load of shocking statistics brought to us by the folks over at HubSpot.

The First Shocking Statistics

  • 44% of salespeople give up after one follow-up.
  • 80% of sales require five follow-ups.

Some other Revealing Statistics About Following Up With Leads

Here are just a few of the results.

  • Subject lines with more than 3 words experience a drop in open rate by over 60%. [source: ContactMonkey]
  • Subject lines that create a sense of urgency and exclusivity can give a 22% higher open [souce: Email Institute]
  • 40% of emails are opened on mobile first – where the average mobile screen can only fit 4-7 words max [source: ContactMonkey]
  • Personalized emails including the recipient’s first name in the subject line have higher open rates. [source: Retention Science]
  • 63% of people requesting information on your company today will not purchase for at least three months – and 20% will take more than 12 months to buy. [source: Marketing Donut]
  • Nurtured leads make 47% larger purchases than non-nurtured leads. [source: The Annuitas Group]

I filtered the huge list of statistics, as I wanted to focus on those that pertain to starting an online business, and I’ve discussed these in the video above.
