As we evaluated the results, we noticed a difference in outlook on lead analytics and lead management processes between community-level and the rest of their colleagues in senior and support roles.
Littleton, Colorado (PRWEB) April 28, 2015
D2 Demand Solutions, in partnership with On-Site.com, today released a new study, which reveals a startling misalignment in the way multi-family organizations self-evaluate lead tracking and follow up efforts. Based on a survey of 268 multi-family associates, the study titled “Lead Analytics: Do You Know Where Your Leases Come From?” asked respondents to self-evaluate their lead analytics.
“As we evaluated the results, we noticed a difference in outlook on lead analytics and lead management processes between community-level and the rest of their colleagues in senior and support roles,” notes co-author Donald Davidoff, president of D2. “That discrepancy looks remarkably like the misalignment between sales and marketing that is an all too common problem in most other industries.”
“This disconnect between community associates and those who support and/or supervise them clearly indicates the need for better analytics and more transparency in multi-family organizations in lead tracking,” said Doug Davidoff, a partner at D2 and co-author of the study. “Right now, it seems as though everyone is not on the same page.”
Key study results show:
- The need to create a Service Level Agreement (SLA) between site sales associates and their leadership. An SLA clearly defines what good lead follow-up is, how it should be done and how it will be measured and reported upon.
- Better lead tracking systems are needed.
- Personalization in marketing presents a great opportunity.
“This is exactly in line with the kind of value we’re trying to provide at On-Site,” said Monte Jones, president of study sponsor On-Site. “You only get behaviors around what is measured, and it’s impossible to have everyone on the same page if they’re working off feelings rather than clearly defined reports that share actual results against pre-defined benchmarks. Your marketing suite must be able to not only capture leads but also to make it easy to manage and report on them.”
