Team models come by the dozen. ISA and Lead Scrubber models all come with high praises, but there’s one advantage Agent on Duty has over others: your leads won’t pile up! With leads coming through the door everyday, it can become tedious for a single person to keep up. Think about “The Coyote” trying to keep up with Road Runner. Eventually, you’re going to get real tired and end up with a big ol’ pile of leads.
The Agent on Duty model can avoid this. For example, if you have one agent responsible for the leads that come in on a specific day, they can answer them right away. There’s no funneling and there’s no time delay. That agent’s one task for the day is simply answering leads.
But there is a drawback. Without a lead scrubber or ISA, you don’t have that pre-qualification phase, to verify if the leads are real. The agent on duty will be responsible for that. So since your agents will handle all aspects of lead management, you’ll need a process to train and hold your agents accountable. So, if you have a limited budget on people you can hire, and you want faster lead follow-up, try the Agent on Duty model.
