Re: HIGHEST PRAISE FOR RO-79!!!

Thank you for your praise!!!  You are most kind. 

Your activity on the community and your profile are a good model for success.  I can pick up some invaluable tips!

I am a videographer in Houston. 

When prospects don't reply or quotes are viewed but don't get hired we need info to help assess how we can change.  But most of the metrics I use have disappeared (or I can't find them). 

One striking statistic I learned is that when I don't reply promptly when quotes are viewed, my conversion rate is near zero! So, removing visibility into quote views is a death knell for how I used to win business.  Obtaining a competitive advantage now requires developing a new strategy.  Meanwhile, revenues have disappeared.

Although I have been a TT member for several years, I am new to the commumnity forum and I was surprised to discover some of the reasons my leads have dried up recently.  I assumed I was doing something wrong and when I tried to analyze bids I discovered information I relied upon was missing. 

As a result, I am forced to repeat the same activities and hope for different results.  A strategy that won't be found on any best practices list!
