Lead Response Time

What’s The Best Lead Response Time? Think Speed to Lead

Speed to lead is the amount of time it takes to respond to an inbound lead once it’s been generated.  Consider these statistics from Lean Data:

  • You are 7x more likely to qualify a lead when reaching out within an hour as opposed to just one hour later
  • You are 100 times more likely to connect with a prospect when you make initial contact within five minutes as compared to if just one hour has elapsed.
  • You are 21 times more likely to convert a lead into an opportunity when responding in five minutes or less as opposed to having just one hour elapse.
