Using a CRM system to record your customer conversations
Keeping stuff in your head is all well and good but can be tricky even for one goal, let alone when you try juggling several goals at once. To be Nimble with your customer sales journey is important, and having a system to organise the chaos is essential.
We want to help you to maximise your customer sales journey by recommending our tried and tested techniques.
We understand running a business is complicated. You must be brilliant at what you do PLUS be the marketing department, sales department, customer services department and the accounts department.
Let’s rewind a moment. Accounts follow processes. Customer services have procedures. Sales have specific steps. Marketing has a journey.
For us we believe conversations need to be handled carefully. Making every conversation count by recording, tracking and considering the best outcome.
Over the sixteen years we’ve been advising clients, one topic often comes up too late in conversation, “which database should I use?”
There are many out there to choose from. Software has been developed over the years to allow teams to collaborate and share information across departments to enhance the experience for the customer. Of course, each company has its own unique requirements, too.
It should also be said that although a database is important, it isn’t the be all and end all to running a successful business. To use a database or CRM system effectively, you need to look at the bigger picture first. What is important is figuring out what parts of the data set you do need and why so you can figure out how to drive your data.
A great way to identify this is to map out the actions you take in your business, step by step, every touch point that will encourage customers to buy from you. This is your customer sales journey.
Then you can get down to putting all these best practices into actionable steps that means anyone in the business can follow them.
