How to Use Your CRM for Better Customer Service (and Sales)

 CRM_tweet_880x495_Daye.png

If you have a CRM system, regardless of the provider,  it’s time to review its capabilities for features you don’t know you have for remote workers and reaching out to customers and prospects?  In this episode, GoldMine CRM Vice President and General Manager, Paul Petersen, talks with Goldmine CRM Administrator Dery Daye. 

Dery says many suddenly virtualized workers are struggling to access vital company systems, but it may be easier than they expect. Many CRM systems have standby virtual capabilities that the IT administrator may have forgotten about, or may not be aware of, for the at-home worker. GoldMine CRM is one of those systems

Many CRM systems Dery says:

  • Can allow on-premise users to switch to a free web-client
  • Check to see if your system can allow SaaS or client based access
  • Most Windows enabled CRM systems can be virtualized
  • Quote software and inventory systems are easy to access if you aren’t using them.

Your action item:

  1. List the applications that you would like to access, don’t take it for granted that you can’t use them.
  2. Approach your manager with your list and ask that the IT manager looks into access via the CRM system.

Lazy, Stupid Mistakes People Make with Social Media – Susan Finch

crm-tweet-finch-20200116-replay.png

In this episode, Susan Finch talks with Paul Petersen about the lazy, studio mistakes people make when using social media. They forget it's a people to people media and try to automate posts - barfing our stuff and that of others vs. true engagement to build relationships that can be converted to prospects or advocates - from either direction.

Let's be honest, she goes on a few rants here because she's passionate about this topic. But she is right. Dead right. Everyone wants the easy way, the silver bullet to avoid actual work. People want to be liked, and loved, and talked about, but they don't want people to people contact; they just want it to look like they have contact, and care when they don't. 

Social media enables a unique opportunity to study another person or company before we attempt to directly engage. We can see their actual positions, words, favorite products, styles and more - it's way more informative than straight data. Data is sold as truth, but that's not the case. Data is an in the moment tabulation of a top of mind discussion, whims, a news headline trigger, a trip down memory lane and then the rabbit holes that spin-off of those directions. 

Social enables us to search for who is talking about what and then filter it from there - their position, their passions, their bugaboos, their pain. This guides the introduction and conversation. But how much should you engage? Why not automate it all? How can your CRM help you sincerely engage? You have the tools, you may need to rethink how you use them.

About our guest:

Susan Finch has been in public relations, advertising and marketing going back nearly 30 years. Her clients range from cities to healthcare services, small organizations, non-profits, real estate professionals and many B2B service providers. This variety of clients allows her to bring unexpected solutions to the challenges clients have had for years. Susan has had many clients for more than 20 years and enjoys keeping them current through her education packages, custom training libraries, as well as group sessions and events. She is also the VP of Operations for the Funnel Media Group.

Stacy Gentile is responsible for global marketing operations at GoldMine CRM and he is also a business writer for online Forbes.com as part of their communications council.

With more than two decades of marketing experience, Gentile has helped startup businesses, worked on difficult turnaround projects and consulted with 300 of America’s leading brands on experiential marketing efforts. Additionally, he also served as a recon platoon sergeant with the U.S. Army and has a degree in International Relations from the University of Wisconsin.

From Gentile's deep background as a consultant, he discusses the three technologies that every new business must have to be successful. But during this conversation, he takes a step further and proposes that while marketing must concern itself with the foundational technology needs, it also must be equally concerned with the cash flow the company needs to survive. The program is hosted by Paul Petersen.
