Cloud computing has changed the way that we store and access data.  Not only have we breached the limiting constraints of our own hard drives, but we’ve created a device-agnotic platform from which data can be accessed remotely. It is a perfect marriage between storage flexibility and access.

Keys to #Winning in Sales from an NFL Quarterback #Sales #Tips

by Employee on ‎05-09-2014 01:57 PM (2,369 Views)

Omaha!  Omaha!  Is a quarterback successful because he yells a couple of words out prior to the ball being snapped?  Is a salesperson successful because he can blurt out of few words about his product or service?  In both cases the answer is no. Perhaps from one of the greatest quarterbacks, Peyton Manning, a sales person can understand how to be successful and win the game!


I’ve had the opportunity for the past week to test out the latest version of Act! (version 16.1) and I'm excited to share this update is now available to our customers!

Digital marketing is a beautiful thing in that you get real-time reporting of your results.  You know where you are winning and you have insight into what is not working so well.  This insight is where you truly start learning your customers patterns and behaviors and know exactly the right message to send to the right audience and the right time to elicit a successful response.

Lowering Stress as a Sales Manager by @jgolly1250

by Employee on ‎04-16-2014 12:16 PM (1,304 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.


Open Rate or Trash #emailmarketing #email #betterinteractions

by Employee on ‎04-14-2014 10:06 AM (4,313 Views)

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!


Spring? Plant your seeds to get your (best) leads! #LeadGen

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 on ‎04-07-2014 11:00 AM (1,386 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.


No seriously, “don’t go to work unless it’s fun day”… never heard of it? How do you make work both purposeful and fun?

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? Is that what is elicited when you think of the people that have entered into your life - business or otherwise?

In our multi prong effort to reduce obesity in CRM and save the environment of features destined for landfill, a new Act! lineup hits the market today.  We have transformed the Act! offering into a eco-friendly, recyclable and healthy lineup.  We’re doing this to address a societal obsession to eliminate software that makes users feel bloated or empty with “all fashion – no features.”

 Somewhere amidst this ticker tape parade of data your new revenue and customers reside.  Not just the ones you can capture, but the referrals that come along with them.  Over time, mismanaged contacts can become an exponentially expanding loss of revenue for your business.  Why not find a way to organize them?
