The local business world is fast-paced and filled with many entrepreneurs, brimming with potential business opportunities. Yet, many small and local businesses find it challenging to keep up, even with themselves, especially when it comes to managing and capitalizing on their leads.
There are just too many things coming at small businesses to adequately contact, qualify, and process all of their leads. When leads are coming at you like a firehose, you miss out on a lot of other opportunities because you have to prioritize the most likely clients, leaving many potential ones on the table. It just happens.
Appointment setting services, however, are becoming a game-changer, enabling small and local businesses to seize every opportunity and achieve impressive growth.
But why should you use appointment setting services? Let’s explore some compelling examples via case studies of a real estate agency, an insurance agent, and a law firm.
Case Study 1: A Dynamic Real Estate Agency Sells 35% More Houses
DreamHouse Realty, a bustling real estate agency in a medium-sized city, is our first example. Despite having a promising portfolio and a dedicated group of agents, they found it difficult to handle the increasing number of leads flying at them in this hot housing market. Tasks like setting up property viewings and arranging meetings with potential buyers were constantly being missed, leading to a lot of lost revenue and commissions.
To combat this, DreamHouse Realty hired a virtual assistant for appointment setting for all their agents. The results were transformative. The virtual assistant efficiently scheduled viewings and followed up on leads, allowing the real estate agents to focus on what they do best — selling homes.
Within the first six months, DreamHouse Realty experienced a significant increase in closed deals — around 35% — transforming their potential leads into tangible growth.
Case Study 2: An Ambitious Insurance Agent Closes 27% More Policies
Next, we have James, a local insurance agent known for his personalized service. Despite his expertise and hard work, he was overwhelmed by the volume of leads and the administrative tasks they necessitated. Logging the interactions in his CRM. Booking the appointment. Confirming the appointment a day before the meeting.
Deciding to turn things around, James hired an appointment setting service. With the virtual assistant scheduling appointments and maintaining follow-ups, he could devote his time to understanding client needs and offering tailored insurance solutions for products like life and boating insurance.
This change had a striking impact on James’ business. Within a year, his client acquisition grew by an impressive 27%, and his client retention rates also showed marked improvement.
Case Study 3: A Local Law Firm Gains 30% More Clients
Finally, let’s look at JusticeFirst, a respected law firm trying to grow their caseload and business retainers. The lawyers, while dedicated and competent at handling their clients’ cases, struggled with responding to new client inquiries and potential cases promptly due to their heavy legal workload.
After hiring a virtual assistant for appointment setting, they noticed an immediate shift. Efficient scheduling of consultations and follow-ups freed the lawyers to focus on their cases.
In the months that followed, the firm saw a 30% increase in new client acquisition and a higher client retention rate. The introduction of an appointment setting service enabled them to turn potential leads into loyal clients.
