Let’s take a look back at 2020, an extraordinarily difficult year for senior living sales. Previously, we published monthly reports during the COVID-19 pandemic. Now it’s time to focus on Sherpa’s Best Performers and how they achieved results during the entirety of 2020.
In our 2020 Best Sales Performers Report, we see that communities in the top percentile of sales during 2020 devoted more selling time (Time in the Selling Zone®), per prospect. These activities included:
- Engaging in more planning sessions to determine meaningful next steps
- More home visits or face-to-face interactions outside of the property
- More personalized, creative follow-up to show a prospect that they are seen and heard
- Direct involvement by Executive Directors in the sales process
