This CRM SUCKS!!!!

“This CRM Sucks!”, is a statement that I’ve heard many sales people and sales managers say many times. Too many times this statement is the fallback statement for someone who just doesn’t know how to use the CRM properly. CRMs only do what we tell them to do. By themselves, standing alone, they will suck. However, when we set them up right, include the proper action plans, business rules, marketing campaigns and follow up processes they are extremely valuable! In…

Sharing Is Caring

The obvious goal of marketing and sales is increasing revenue. They are so closely intertwined it often surprises me that in many cases sales staff are not taught about the complexity, cost and how to benefit from marketing efforts of their employers.

Content Doesn’t Have to Be Scary!

Great content comes in several forms. However, many people think of content as just the written word, such as blogs and articles. For those who aren’t writers, or don’t have the time to write, this can seem like a daunting task.

If Nothing Changes, Nothing Changes

In a world increasingly picking up speed, passive leaders have never been more vulnerable. Recent history has demonstrated in business it’s no longer so much a matter of the big eating the small, but the swift eating the slow. Obviously, this dynamic puts the careers of those content to wait for things to change on a leadership endangered species list. You know what I mean—those content to wait for:

• A better product: “Once the ‘X’ or ‘Y’ model gets here we’ll be rocking.”

• A…
