Lowering Stress as a Sales Manager by @jgolly1250

by Employee on ‎04-16-2014 12:16 PM (46 Views)

As a sales leader, I have learned emotions can be contagious. If you are a sales manager who consistently feels overwhelmed and stressed out, this can negatively impact your sales performance of your company, team, and push away customers. How do you lower your stress so you can continue to encourage those around you and maintain your own sanity?

You can buy into the dream, you can get it up and running, you can even make it look good – but how do you ensure people are still using it 6 or 12 months down the line? A CRM is for life, not just for implementation.

I wade through hundreds of emails a day and rarely open emails from senders that are not employees, customers, partners or mom, but when I do, there is a reason why.

I believe that everyone is striving to be great at what they do. Whether you’re a landscaper, hairdresser, or software consultant, you chose your profession because you are good at it and you get joy out of a job well done. The harsh truth is to start a business, you have to focus on other things.  Inventory, scheduling, taxes, websites, social media, branding… the list goes on and you haven’t even got a customer yet!

I’m so excited!  Spring is in the air and I’ve spent the last few weeks with my two boys getting ready to start our first family vegetable garden.  We’ve set-up and framed two raised garden beds.  As my boys and I started working on our garden beds - that I affectionately call our “farm” - it occurred to me that many of the best gardening tactics also apply to website optimization, #leadgen, and effective customer relationship programs…

How do you communicate?

by Employee on ‎04-07-2014 11:00 AM (104 Views)

What time of the day are you most likely to be in a meeting, on a phone call, sending email, or available via chat?  One easy way to answer this is to open your calendar and look at the last week and count the meetings, phone calls, outbound emails and chat sessions and plot those against a daily graph.  I plotted mine against 2 hour blocks of the day and had some interesting realizations.

People are at the center of our lives and our daily transactions and interactions.  Traditional contact management made people uniform, serial, a collection of ones and zeroes.  Is that how you see them?

5 Common Web Design Mistakes

by Employee on ‎08-21-2013 09:41 AM (369 Views)

You’ve spent countless hours building and agonizing over every detail of your website. You love it, and you think your customers will too—but the leads aren’t coming and the money isn’t flowing. What’s going on?

 

We all know that websites play a critical role in any business’ marketing and branding efforts. A poorly designed website can lead to a confusing user experience, resulting in a loss of potential revenue. I am frequently asked to provide feedback on websites for co-workers, friends, and family. While we all agree that a well-designed website will generate more leads and revenue, it’s easier said than done. Here are 5 of the most common mistakes I see – and how to avoid making them.
