The XY scatter plot in above example analyzes 243 deals closed during a period and their correlation with number of follow ups. The chart plots number of client follow ups on X-axis and corresponding number of deals closed on Y-axis. The connected markers show percentage of deals closed at each follow up stage.

From the chart, audience can easily see that 61% of the deals got closed between 5th and 10th follow-up, with 14% at the 7th follow-up. This analysis emphasizes importance of multiple follow-ups and optimum number of follow ups for better results.
