OSC FAQs

What is an OSC?

“OSC” is short for Online Sales Concierge. An OSC is dedicated to providing a consistent experience for all your leads, regardless of source. The primary responsibility of an OSC is to respond quickly to your leads, nurture your pipeline, and prepare your shoppers to take the next steps towards a purchasing decision. Prospective buyers come to your business online at different stages of their journey, and your OSC is prepared to meet them where they are.

Why do I need an Online Sales Program or an OSC?
With todays consumers wanting answers at their fingertips, its important now more than ever to have an online sales program with a highly trained OSC. Let’s face it, On-site Sales Professionals are just too busy. Too busy to respond fast enough to keep prospects engaged and moving down the sales funnel. The OSC can provide unbiased guidance that will aid in building rapport and trust with your buyers.
How do I know if I need an Online Sales Program?
If you’re generating 150+ leads per month then it’s time to think about having a dedicated OSC handle those leads. If your competition has a dedicated OSC to answer questions quickly and your still relying on the busy Onsite Sales Professional to answer that lead, they may never get a return call back! Having a dedicated OSC means that you can assure that no lead is left behind.
Do I get my own dedicated OSC?

Yes! For any full-time OSC annual partnership package, you are partnered with a dedicated OSC and a backup OSC who will only represent your company. This allows for better team dynamics from online to onsite and provides peace of mind that your OSCs know your business inside and out!

Is my OSC assigned to multiple builders or just mine?

Generally, you will get assigned a dedicated OSC who is only assigned to you.  However, if you require a full-time OSC and a part-time OSC, that part-time OSC may be assigned to you and another annual builder partner in a non-competing market. 

My leads are my leads. How do I know that my leads are staying with only me?

We sign a dual non-disclosure agreement to give you peace of mind that your leads are staying with you.  We NEVER share your leads with anyone else.  Also, with having a dedicated OSC assigned only to you, its nearly impossible to share leads.

When can I start seeing results from my online sales program?

Launching an online sales program takes a lot of time and effort, not only from your OSC team but also your onsite sales team, and leadership team.  The most successful implementations we’ve seen will start to see results in as little as six months. 

Why do I need to purchase the 30-Day Discovery package for me to sign up for an OSC annual partnership package?

Completing the 30-Day Discovery program is vital to the success of not only your online sales program but also your onsite sales team.  With the many launches we’ve implemented in the past, we’ve found that we must understand how your business is currently operating from lead capture to close.  After the 30-Day Discovery program, we provide you with a comprehensive report on our findings and provide feedback on recommended and required changes for us to operate as your turnkey OSC solution.  This allows us to ensure both online and onsite can work seamlessly together and your CRM and tech stacks are set up to make that possible.

Why would I outsource my OSC if I can hire in-house?

There are a few benefits to outsourcing your online sales program:

      • You never have to worry about coverage. Most builders who have a single OSC worry about who will cover to manage leads when their OSC is off their two days per week or if they go on vacation; even worse, if they quit. By outsourcing with Shared Drive, you’re always covered which means you’ll never have any gaps in service.
      • You’ll have peace of mind that your OSC is highly trained by NAHB® award-winning OSC coaches and are provided continuous training.
      • You’ll have access to industry-leading online sales coaches working with you to achieve your sales goals.
