Zero to CRM(Customer Relationship Manager) If you’re a business owner, big or small, you understand the importance and also necessity of tracking interactions with your clients and client prospects. Improving your tracking and becoming more efficient with it, will keep you more organized and also increase your business outcomes. WHAT IS THE CRM AND HOW DOES IT WORK (CRM) stands for Customer Relationship Manager, which allows businesses to manage business relationships and the data and information associated with them. With a CRM you have the ability to store contact information with their business name and whether they are prospective or current clients. Sometimes the relationship is a partnership, or you may be using a product of theirs; all this can be stored in the CRM. You are then able to track interactions such as calls, emails, and purchases to log where you are it with this relationship. The greatest part is tracking your current status with this client. Once in the opportunity phase, you can log whether you need to further vet the client, create a proposal, and then close a deal. HOW A CRM CAN GROW YOUR BUSINESS A CRM gives everyone across the business, including sales, customer service, marketing, and business development, a better way to manage the customer relationships and interactions that drive success. Here at Nikos Computer Engineering we have started using a CRM, and we have found this has helped us to achieve our contact goals. This allows you to view how many new contacts you have made within a specified time, to give you an idea of how many more you need. With visibility and easy access to customer data, such as contact information, sales opportunities, service issues, and marketing campaigns, a CRM system can give you a clear overview of your customers. As a starting point, you can access the CRM to keep you on track with which clients you need to reach out to next, give proposal to, and close deals with. Some businesses may be using traditional means of keeping all this information such as a rolodex, or sticky notes, but these strategies will never work with a growing business, and the goal is to grow your business right?
