Running a successful window treatment business requires a multitude of skills and strategies. One aspect that often goes overlooked is the importance of knowing your numbers. And like Exciting Windows! Partner Vin Nigara says, “If you don’t know your numbers, you don’t know your business.”
Understanding the financial metrics of your business can make a significant difference in your success, profitability, and growth. Three essential metrics you need to know and understand are your closing rates, number of appointments, and average sale.
Closing rates refer to the percentage of appointments that result in a sale. To calculate your closing rate, divide the number of appointments by the number of sales. For example, if you had 50 appointments in a month and closed 30 of them, your closing rate would be 60%. Tracking your closing rates allows you to identify areas for improvement in your sales process and measure the effectiveness of your sales strategy.
Number of Appointments
Tracking the number of appointments you generate is crucial to understanding your business’s growth potential. To calculate the number of appointments, count the total number of inquiries or leads you receive during a specific period. This metric helps you evaluate the effectiveness of your marketing campaigns, assess lead generation strategies, and plan for future growth.
The average sale represents the average amount of revenue generated per transaction. To calculate the average sale, divide the total revenue by the number of sales. This metric provides valuable insights into your pricing strategy and helps you identify opportunities to increase your revenue per customer.
