How to develop a customer relationship management (CRM) strategy

The importance of a CRM to sales and marketing people

Small businesses generally find it difficult to designated some of their times for their sales and marketing efforts, as they feel perpetually short on time.

Both marketing and sales sometimes tend to get neglected, but you need to remember that without a focus on sales and marketing, your small business will not sustain growth.

So how do you solve this kind of problem? – CRM

CRM stands for Customer Relationship Management.

CRM software is a database that helps small businesses better manage their future and current customers. CRM software helps in many ways and on this particular post, we share with you how it helps when it comes to lead nurturing to conversion.

A lead is basically someone in your data base with an interest to your small business or the product or service you offer. These are people who have willingly given you their information and that is why they are in your CRM.

They need to be nurtured. Very very few of us buy right away. Most of us need 7 to 8 “brand impressions” before we buy something.

We must admit that establishing a sales-focused interaction with your leads is time-consuming as it requires regular sending of content and emails to increase their interests.

Some of the importance of a CRM software for a successful nurturing campaign includes the following:

CRM software allows you to segment your nurturing efforts based on customer interests, which means you send relevant emails to the right segment of leads within your CRM with common characteristics.

The more personal you make the interaction with your lead, the more likely your nurturing strategy is to succeed. CRM software will help you personalize all your strategy.

Save your sales and marketing people time (there by increasing the number of prospects they can interact with) by using an automated campaign.
