calculate the value of a price callerFTC loss #1: The pro-rated marketing cost of the lead. Yep, every time a new prospect reaches out to your company it costs money to make your phone ring! FTC? Your investment is wasted!

FTC loss #2: The immediate cash infusion from this job. (Don’t forget, you need cash to make payroll this week!)😲

FTC loss #4: They’ll never become your Customer Cheerleader! Remember, the “downstream income” produced by Cheerleaders will be an incredible business ROI… but only IF you “convert each caller”!

Wow, that’s a lot of gone-forever profits above! Heck, I’m depressed just writing about it! So, to get us upbeat again,👍👍 let’s look at the ROI a delighted Cheerleader can bring you (and your employees) real soon!🥰
