Stop Losing Social Care Clients....

'But you phoned us at our busiest time...' ๐Ÿ“ž


I know, and that is precisely the point..


I repeatedly tell my clients that the easiest way to acquire new clients is to stop losing the leads you are already getting.


1. Find the Gap

2. Fill the Gap

3. Move on


When testing a providers enquiry process it is pointless to phone at the most obvious time, unless you are testing your 'normal' process.


You need to understand what is happening outside of normal office hours?


๐Ÿ“… Weekends?


๐Ÿ“… Evenings?


๐Ÿ• Handover times?


There are ways of handing enquiries effectively 24/7.


This could be through:


1๏ธโƒฃ Dedicated staff on a rota to deal with enquiries

2๏ธโƒฃ Outsourcing Out of Hours to a third party

3๏ธโƒฃ Automating some of the process to remove barriers

4๏ธโƒฃ Incentivising staff to deal with enquiries effectively

5๏ธโƒฃ Enquiry training


Or a mixture of any of the above.


Poor lead handling and follow up should not be a reason for lack of social care clients
