"John- I'm new here, and this is actually my first post. Apparently nobody else knew what to tell you... I was in the same boat years ago when I was a salesperson. The dealership didn't have a CRM, so I purchased Act! 2000. It wasn't…"

Salesperson ONLY online CRM tool.

I would appreciate anybody who has the time to give me an idea of the best , easy to use and easy on the wallet CRM online tool. I am going back to the sales floor after 10 years of management (to make more money with half the "Agg.") Since our business has changed so much some good , some bad, I'd like to take advantage of my own CRM tool for more organized short and long term follow up. Let me know who you guys think and why. Thanks JohnSee More

Jason Mickelson replied to John Armstrong's discussion How do I get my sales team better at getting the Internet customer to engage or even email or call back ?
"John, I had another thought.  You might try asking your team what they plan to accomplish when they call a new internet lead that has not been contacted.  If they are unclear of their mission, they will fumble the call.  Call me if…"
