I guess it is more important to start off with the question of, “What is the most important asset of your business?”
Answer: Your customers and your customer list.
Learning from and following the lead of our clients, over the years, our firm has become a big believer in Infusionsoft. Infusionsoft is a cloud based CRM (customer relationship management system) that is designed for small businesses and allows small business owners to maintain their customer lists, track prospects and customer communications. The system allows you to automate and control communications with new prospects and with your existing customers. It also allows you to track responses to your marketing and advertising campaigns and can power and automate a good deal of other tasks. The system is quite comprehensive and involves tools and tasks that every small business owner should be working on.
If you don’t have a handle on these 5 questions, we definitely recommend that you check out Infusionsoft.
What also makes Infusionsoft a compelling company is how they approach their own business development. Infusionsoft understands their target customers (small businesses) and so they have focused everything they do on helping small business owners succeed. Infusionsoft offers some great (free) articles and materials about strategic planning and business marketing: Visit http://www.Infusionsoft.com.
