Small businesses spend billions of dollars every year on marketing, to generate more "business." When marketing works, it creates inbound activity from potential customers - phone calls, emails and other inquiries. With all the attention on generating leads, though, virtually no systems or processes are established to maximize the conversion of leads into customers, and then retaining those customers within the business. Solutions often seem too complicated, difficult or expensive, so business owners avoid them. Easy, cost-effective solutions are available, and when used by a small business, they can greatly improve the ultimate goal of their marketing - getting more customers and keeping more of them. In fact, ReplyWise's users are improving the rate at which they get new customers by an average of 67% after only a few months of using it.
