Feature improvement – Marketing Email Designer

We have done some work under the hood with our email designer. We think you’ll like it.

Being able to “recycle” emails is a valuable part of any marketing blast. You may have different segments, tags, or companies you are targeting for your campaigns. You may not always want to recreate old emails if you are repurposing them. Our Email Designer now allows you to clone, reuse, and retitle emails to fit the crowd you are engaging.

What does this look like?

The clone button is the capstone to the email designer revamp. It allows you to use the exact same email as a template for your new email, while maintaining the original construct. Within the email designer, you can also easily see where your email is being used.

Email Designer

Why do I want this feature?

Being able to duplicate emails in your campaigns and newsletters removes something: pain. It takes away the agony of having to remember your content, re-upload images, and replicating layouts. This saves you a massive amount of time, and gives you the ability to focus on other tasks. In one word, this feature is incredibly valuable.

How do I use it?

When you go into your Email Designer tab under Marketing, you can see all of the emails you have created. You can easily sift through and filter what is useful to you, as well as find the email you want to duplicate. Once you have located the desired email, you can see where the email is being used, what the subject/editor/update date is, and other options for editing. Press the clone button on the top-right of the email to duplicate, and you will have a new window or tab open. You can make any changes in the editor to tailor to your specific audience, then save and test to make sure images and text render properly.

There you have it!

You are ready to use our Email Designer in its new-and-improved fashion. Our hope is that your efforts will be streamlined and your valuable time will be maximized.

Please reach out and say hello! As always, our desire is for you to get out of the red and into the black. We would love to know how we can do this for you.

How to be More Efficient with Salesmanna’s To-Do List

I love Salesmanna because I’m task-oriented. I prioritize because the result I want to achieve is to meet my goals. It’s what every good seller should want, and what sales managers strive to achieve.

I look at my goals every week as I organize my schedule and tasks. I want to know what tasks make sense to complete first, in what order they need to be done, and how I want to allocate my time towards their completion. In other words, I want to plan the steps I need to take to reach those goals.

Salesmanna’s To-Do List is an easy to use asset that helps me to organize and prioritize my tasks. To add a task, you click the “+” icon, write what you need to accomplish and assign a date. Task items are assigned to one of three categories: To-Do, Completed Today, and Overdue. It’s a quick overview into what I need to accomplish and how I need to organize my day or week ahead. I use Salesmanna’s To-Do List to start my day, prioritize and complete major tasks first, and plan ahead for what I couldn’t finish and need to complete the next day.

I love the fact that I can easily reorganize my priorities by clicking and moving any item higher or lower on my priority list. I can also mark an item as completed to remove it, or move an item to another column. Salesmanna’s To-Do List is easy to use. My efforts and activity are transparent, and I’m more engaged in my own plan to make success happen.

We get 40 hours a week to accomplish the major tasks that get you to your goals, so make those hours count! With Salesmanna’s To-Do List, you won’t lack the tools to be successful, organized, and far ahead of your competition. And with Salesmanna, you get all the features you need to be organized for one easy price.

Why a SaaS CRM like Salesmanna is Your Best Solution for Business Growth

There’s lots of discussion about what a “cloud” platform is and how having one helps support your business. A cloud is simply a structured environment that houses software or data remotely. The use of a cloud system helps to free up storage space that would have been housed on your computer or a series of hard drives.

The cloud is also what helps to host a Saas (Software as a Service) platform, which best describes Salesmanna. SaaS is a software licensing and delivery model in which software is licensed on a subscription basis and is centrally hosted. Salesmanna is provided through a cloud environment, meaning that the software works anytime, anywhere. It’s more economical and reliable to use a SaaS software. It’s our job to back-up and protect data, and because we’re hosting Salesmanna for you, it’s less likely to have service interruptions.

Having Salesmanna is your on-demand software for organization. It’s built and designed to function wherever there is a Wi-Fi or cellular connection, thanks to its SaaS platform. The information is protected against loss and gives the seller the freedom to make decisions as they work through their schedule. Salesmanna has a responsive design, meaning you can access and work with it through your tablet or mobile device. And coming soon, we’re launching our cell phone application to allow even more ways to connect with ease.

In today’s world of instant gratification, we know your sellers want a user-friendly platform that moves with them. Salesmanna gives them that flexibility and portability to add information quickly, get schedule updates, respond to follow-ups and reminders, and work their action plan. The cloud-based storage per license is unlimited, so your best sellers never run out of space to keep up with leads and opportunities. Each license gives you the freedom to track as much as you want without limits or expirations. Salesmanna grows with you as your business grows and gives you all the features you need for one easy price.

The Importance of Tags with Clients and Prospects #Success #BetterProspecting #ReachingGoals

After listening to several of our sales clients talk about success, we learned something incredibly important about the sales industry:

Rarely do you see two great sellers prioritize clients and prospects alike.

Let that sink in for a minute. In an industry where you find the hardest working people – an industry that is driven by results – how can you find such diverse methodologies amongst its professional members?

There can be LOTS of differences in the ways that good sellers organize their client priorities, but we all want the same outcome of success. So how can we help you prioritize clients and prospects when so many industries and sellers differ from each other?

Salesmanna includes a feature to add customized “Tags” to your contacts. Instead of creating Tags that may or may not fit each industry we serve or each sellers’ preferences, we think it’s better to give YOU the flexibility to decide what is important when grouping clients and prospects.

Do you have a seasonal client that you only need to call in the springtime? Are three of your clients interested in one product in your portfolio but not others? Do you have three clients that love the Swamp Rabbits and you have tickets?

Use “Tags” to add a sort field that matters to you: #Spring #ProductName #Hockey. Adding tags is just like adding a hashtag in your social media, but better. By using Tags, you can sort your clients by specific keywords to make a prioritized contact list. You can add a Tag to show that a product has been pitched, AND you can customize communication to reach JUST those that are most interested in the product that you’re focusing on selling.

And for managers, it’s easier to track current clients and prospects by using Tags as a secondary option to measure performance. The Tags can show potential opportunity, or show what has been pitched.

We understand no two sellers are alike. That’s why we didn’t create categories for Tagging. We’re giving you the power to create your plan, giving you the opportunity to find the organization that works best for you, your team, and your industry. And most importantly, you can customize your communication around your Tags to be focused in your sales efforts.

Better Training = Better Results

If you are responsible for sales revenue, you know that the reality of competition is that they’re tougher and fiercer than ever before. Your sellers are often up against strong, persistent competitors. And just like last night’s Super Bowl, sometimes the difference between you and your competition’s success is someone making one extra great play. To help your sales team go the extra mile, we’ve created a tool in Salesmanna for coaching and self-improvement called Salesmanna Connect.

This facet of Salesmanna gives you and your sellers the ability to record calls with customers and save them for review. Working with recorded audio will tell EXACTLY what your sales team is doing well – and where they need improvement – when communicating with customers via phone. This unique program feature can help you and your sellers identify call strengths and weaknesses by listening for key conversation points where there might be additional selling opportunities. You can also utilize the audio files to create plans of action for account growth based customer responses, and archive or delete those recorded customer interactions.

Salesmanna Connect also works as a self-coaching tool. Your best sellers WANT to be better, and they can work with their own audio to review calls and learn how to improve techniques. Working with recorded audio also serves as an easy way to review a checklist from a call and make sure all deadlines are met and promises are delivered upon. When a seller learns to capitalize on their own strengths and improve performance, you get a seller that is far more likely to accomplish great things.

At Salesmanna, we’re always looking for ways to improve and increase the odds that your sales team will get more sales. And that’s why Salesmanna Connect is included with Salesmanna at no additional charge.

Salesmanna creates the opportunity to develop a better sales force, execute a customer retention strategy, have consistent follow-through, save you time, and keep your sellers organized…. All in one great software.
