INDIANAPOLIS, IN--(Marketwire - Mar 5, 2013) - Monday is the best day for healthcare marketers to schedule outbound sales calls, according to an infographic and white paper released by LeadJen ( www.leadjen.com ), a B2B lead generation company that helps corporate sales and marketing teams drive more revenue and better understand their market.
Selling to Healthcare Organizations graphically presents best practices gleaned from lead generation campaign records for healthcare companies from 2010-2012, including a quarter million call and email attempts, and more than 30,000 conversations with healthcare professionals. These calls resulted in more than 2,000 qualified appointments, $30 million in sales pipeline and more than $10 million in revenue.
Topics include average conversion rates in the healthcare market, which steps in the campaign result in the best return, the best day and time to set appointments, and best practice guidelines.
For example, the infographic shows:
- Healthcare marketers are setting 76 percent more appointments now than three years ago.
- More than 28 percent of appointments are set during the first phone call.
- Inbound responses to email and voice mail account for nearly a quarter of appointments set in the industry.
- Referrals account for almost 20 percent of appointments set.
- The best day to set appointments in the healthcare industry is Monday, while 11 am to noon Eastern is the best time to reach a prospect live.

This is creating opportunities for companies that provide solutions," said Jenny Vance, president of LeadJen.
