What is the CRM good for?The CRM on expertAccounts.com allows you to delegate to your staff the communication with customers. It also facilitates communication between employees. For example, when an employee finishes a working stage that he knows about, he can notify another colleague to continue with the next stage. The CRM provides online collaborative work between the employees at the headquarters and those working on the field and branches.
Anytime a colleague goes (on vacation), another one can continue his work, in order to replace him successfully.
Employee's productivity increases, because everything is centralized, tasks are automatized and response time is significantly reduced.
A very important fact is that you can monitor and supervise the marketing and business activity: you know who, with who, what and when talks, what quotations do the customers receive and how they react to them. Also, for each opportunity, you will know who will take the next step and when. Everything is just one click away!
Scenario: How to find new customers?From "fishing rod" to "oceanic fishing"
Suppose that you have 1.000 business contacts, from various sources: your current customers, business cards, catalogs and online business directories etc. You enter them in the CRM with company name, contact person, phone and email, or import them if you have them in a file. Then, you compose one or more e-mails or newsletters with links to your website, and send them to all your contacts, grouped by campaigns. Also, all the e-mails contain an unsubscribe link.
It is recommended that the first e-mail to be a polite request for commercial communication. When a recipient clicks on a link in the e-mail, the CRM will automatically create a task to your sales representative, to call the person who clicked, because it is interested in your product or service. This way, from 1000 contacts, 150 will probably click, and will become leads which you will call. Probably, only 30 of these will become customers that will buy from you.
In this example, we talked about only 1000 contacts, but using the expertAccounts CRM, only one marketing staff can manage 10.000 contacts!
This scenario probably is not suitable for every business, but the expertAccounts.com CRM can be used in many other ways. The major advantage is that you can delegate marketing work to employees, in a system that helps and organizes them, and facilitates you to monitor what is going on!
