Salesmanna is the Time-Saving CRM

Let’s say you’re reading this, and you’re considering what CRM to choose for your business or company. You’re probably wondering “How much time will it take to get started with Salesmanna?”

The simple answer is… not that much, and FAR less than most competitive software. Salesmanna is intuitive. Any person who has previously worked with a CRM will understand it. If you have a seller that is new to it, they can learn the basics and be ready to roll.

Compare Salesmanna’s set up process to other CRM software. Some aren’t as intuitive, and your administrator has to be trained through a series of long videos. It’s recommended that they receive certifications. They must understand versions of platforms, mobile apps, etc. Your employees have better things to do than spend days in training, right? And, how large is that training investment? If you lose that employee, you must retrain the next one. All of this leads to loss of time and efficiency.

That’s not what Salesmanna is about. We’re about connecting and making sure that your sellers have access to all the things they need in the field. Here are a few things that we offer to make getting started much easier with us:

  • Connect your account and email address. This helps the Calendar and Inbox features to interface with Salesmanna for updates. (It’s as simple as going to your Account Settings and connecting!)
  • Got current contacts? Use a CSV (comma separated values) file to import them. It’s just an excel file that’s converted to a special format that allows our software to add them in. Use the Import Contacts feature and add them in.
  • Download the mobile app, now available for Android or iPhone. If needed, use the business card scanner in the mobile app to scan business cards into your contacts.

That’s it. From here, you’re ready to begin… There are no weeks where you’re offline. There are no confusing questions and major delays. Even if this still sounds daunting, our team is here to take the lead. We also offer data migration services.

If you’re still thinking this might be tough, then I promise you are overthinking it. It’s an experience that sets you up for success and easier account management. If you’re still worried, send us an email and we’ll answer all questions. The bottom line is that we’ll change your mind about ease of implementation, and you’ll wish you’d done this sooner.

Celebrating Independence

It’s that time of year where we celebrate our patriotism and, if you’re lucky, enjoy a little time off. The 4th of July is about celebrating our independence and all that we’ve accomplished as a nation.

We know how many sellers LOVE independence. (The word micro-managed makes some sellers cringe!) But with independence comes responsibility, and that responsibility involves reaching goals, exercising strategies, and implementing necessary steps to see through customer agreements.

One of the reasons that Salesmanna works is that you as a seller have access to the same tools for success that a sales manager has at their fingertips. For example, I can run my own activity report and show the amount of work I generate in a given month, day, or week. I can measure that week against other weeks to show progress. I can also be honest with myself, and say ‘Have I held onto this too long?’ There are times where we all hope a deal will happen and it doesn’t. Sometimes it is best to cut losses and move on to the next thing. How far am I from reaching my goals, and what can I realistically accomplish in each increment? Just as much as I want to demonstrate effort, I ultimately want to produce results.

Using a CRM creates independence. Yes, they do give sales managers an inside viewpoint into the day to day activity a seller creates, but they also allow you the freedom to manage your results and help you chart a realistic action plan. I can’t imagine anything better than having the independence to create my own success.
