Signs Your Small Business Needs Salesforce Software for CRM

Making sense of the complexities small business creates requires professional tools to keep track of sales, ordering and customers.  Achieve your goals and more with Salesforce Apps.

When you first set out running your small business, the tasks are simple.  Keeping track of everything from inventory to sales to what your customers are doing can be done with pen, paper and an excel spreadsheet.  However, as your business gets larger, it will likely outgrow the capabilities of these simple tools.  What you need is a scalable way to keep track of transactions and customers to keep yourself moving upwards.

When your business approaches the threshold of requiring CRM software there are several signs that will make them self noticed.  It is up to the business owner or manager to read and interpret the signals correctly so that your business does not lose efficiency or worse, turn into a chaotic mess.

The following are 7 signs that your business needs to upgrade its CRM processes:

  1. Your business team is no longer on the same page because they lack a single source of company information: Information about your customers is located in different places and employees don’t know what the other is up to. This creates a limited view scenario and causes an inefficient operational framework.
  2. Everyone in your business seems to be doing his or her own thing: This happens when there is too much going on for the owner or management to keep track of what everybody is doing.  This means accountability is lost and making plans for the future is very difficult.  It is important to know the workload and work rate of your employees to be able to seek out and realize new business opportunities.
  3. You spend too much time on reports and analysis: Monthly reports are the key to gaining insight into the health of your business so you can make adjustments or seek expansion opportunities.  If keeping up with reporting is taking up too much employee time and cutting into time for other necessary work, it’s time for software to help out.
  4. Data is being lost: In a complex business there is normally more than one employee working with a single client.  When you start playing broken telephone or information is not relayed at all, you need software to manage the information.
  5. Your team is not in touch: Having instant access to valuable information even when your employees are on the go is important to running an efficient business and keeping customers taken care of.
  6. All your customers get the same treatment: Your offers or sales pitches are the same for any potential new client. For a well-run business it is important to know what’s important to your customers.  No two clients are the same so your offers shouldn’t be either.
  7. Would your business be able to expand at the drop of a hat? What if you got a major contract and had to expand your operation to accommodate the extra workload.  Would you be able to stay organized and on top of tasks properly?  If not, it’s time for assistance from Salesforce Software.

If one or more of these signs are applicable to your business, it’s high time you consulted with a professional at a Salesforce Apps and Software vendor.  While Salesforce has many apps there are some vendors out there such as CRM Fusion that offer integrated apps for Salesforce that can fine tune your business process for a distinct competitive advantage.  Their website can be found at www.crmfusion.com and their sales staff is standing by to help your business in it’s push for growth.

Employee Time Clock Online And Totally Free

timeclockhub.com

It turns out that there are some saving graces financially speaking for employers thanks to new and increasingly better time clock software located online. They offer several advantages over the traditional time clocks that had gotten stuck in the analog era.

No more time clock glitches from a frayed wire or a glitch to the mechanical workings of a time clock. Save on space and make it so that non-central employees have the same access to time clock software as the rest of your employees.

Free Online Employee Time Tracking Is The Answer
Not only is TimeClockHub.com a free online employee time tracking system, it provides the added benefit of providing seamless access to reporting.

While it may not seem like a big deal, because you are already probably engaged in using and paying for payroll software, think about it this way. This software saves time that would normally go toward researching time clock glitches, repairing the old machine, or to paying for another service — payroll.

A payroll service would need all of the data in order to remit paychecks, provide record keeping and bookkeeping to pay taxes as well. Factor in that businesses are required to file four quarterly tax periods along with annual Federal and probably state taxes, and now it becomes even more clear that this free online time clock saves a lot more money.

Money Saving Software System
Not to beat a dead analog time clock to death, but all those slips of paper that employees submit by hand contain errors. Glitches in regular time clocks translate into over payments, and sometimes put your relationship with employees and therefore the community at large in jeopardy.

Every employer has had to ask for money back from an employee. Even if the employee was deliberately taking advantage of a loophole, the word gets out and the employer looks bad. That means TimeClockHub.com saves on hiring a public relations firm or an online reputation management firm’s costs to save your reputation because of a faulty time clock.

In addition, having access to information in one system is a better way to lock down information. In this era of hackers and need for better encryption, less passing along of information among different “professionals” and their own faulty computer security is ideal.

When a company employs this free software, it interfaces easily with Quickbooks. That means you can cut out unnecessary risks of having your employee and company information falling into the wrong hands, while saving money on bookkeeping expenses.

It is a solution that is estimated to save $3700 every year. Though, you may save more than that when you factor in how much a few employee over payments, hiring the online reputation management company, and a bookkeeper cost.

It is the time clock system that more than 50,000 businesses entrust with their time-clock and payroll needs. It is free, and all you have to stand to lose are a lot of costly headaches.

Management- Or Management Software?

Management- Or Management Software?

 

If you’re struggling to manage your homeowners association with limited tools, but don’t want to hire a management company, HOA management software may be a happy compromise.

As a self-managed association, finding the right tools to manage your HOA can be difficult. Most tools on the market are generic for basic accounting and data tracking so any type of company can use them. For community associations, this usually doesn’t work due to the unique types of accounting and data that need to be tracked. Records of outbound payments to vendors, incoming dues payments from homeowners, and information regarding common areas and specific units and lots can require page after page of spreadsheets using Excel or Excel-like grids. HOA management software eliminates the need for these spreadsheets by putting all the information in one place. Condo Manager takes it a step further and integrates accounting functions so only one program is needed for everything.

All versions of Condo Manager come equipped with an accrual accounting system and the ability to create accounts for every owner and home in the association. With the accounting functions, users can input and pay vendor invoices, receive and process dues payments (or integrate lockbox!), and even reconcile bank assessments. These accounting functions are wizard supported and user-friendly, so whether the user has a degree in accounting or hates basic math, the system is simple to use. Each individual owner account can store information such as alternative addresses, contact information, pool fob and parking numbers, or any other pertinent information using customizable fields.

As a module based solution, additional features can be added on a need basis. Small, single-family associations may not need the work order module like a condominium association, but could benefit greatly from the architectural request and violations module. Track requests from submission to approval, and violations from creation through the different levels of your enforcement process.

We understand board members are busy, so Condo Manager’s built in to-do list can create reminders within the program so everything from an ARC to dues assessments is taken care of in a timely manner and nothing is forgotten. With every aspect of managing the association included in one easy to use solution, the perfect tools to ensure your association is at its very best are at your fingertips.

SHOULD YOU OUTSOURCE YOUR SOCIAL MEDIA OR MANAGE IT YOURSELF?

SHOULD YOU OUTSOURCE YOUR SOCIAL MEDIA OR MANAGE IT YOURSELF?

If Social Media Marketing is all about creating powerful, cost-effective method for connecting your brand or company with your customers, why are so many social media analytics platforms and tools so expensive?  The price tags for some professional-level social media dashboard systems alone can add hundreds of dollars a month to even the most humble marketing campaigns.  What gives?

The reality is that most individuals, small businesses and mid-size brands don’t need the high-powered, enterprise-level tools the big guys use. In fact, many of the best tools and platforms are available for free.

HERE ARE 5 TIPS FOR WRITING YOUR SOCIAL MEDIA CONTENT

1. Create Valuable Content

Posts on Twitter have the shortest lifespan out of any other social media, so how can we make sure that the content we are promoting is worth the time of our followers? There are three simple questions that we can ask ourselves to be sure we aren’t wasting our time or anyone else’s.

Is It Bold?

Show what you stand for and share your experiences. Kawasaki noted, “You become more interesting when you have people you piss off.” The point here is not to intentionally anger people. Just don’t waste any time worrying. You know who your target audience is, and you know the information they are looking for. They want to know what you think, so show them where you stand and be confident in your knowledge.

Is It Brief?

Don’t overwhelm your audience with too much text in a single post. Twitter has a character limit for a reason, and it’s good practice to place your own limitations on all your social media posts. Try to keep your non-tweet posts around 250 characters. Not only does this help to keep the interest of your readers, it makes sure none of your text gets cut off.

Does it pass the “reshare” test?

Make sure it’s worth passing along. The most reshareable or retweetable posts usually fall under one of four categories:
– Information
– Analysis
– Assistance
– Entertainment

In the end, always go back to see how your posts are received, and if need be, figure out what you can improve upon next time.

2. Use Images

Make the most of every post you create by adding an eye-catching and relevant image. Sites like Canva or PicMonkey can help you create great post images if you don’t have any image-editing apps of your own.

If you aren’t artistically inclined, but don’t have someone to help create graphics for your social media, check out this Socially Stacked blog on how to make designer-quality images.

3. Schedule and Cross-Post

Use social media tools like Hootsuite or Buffer to schedule out your posts. Social media scheduling platforms can help you get the job done well, while streamlining the posting process for you a bit.

And don’t be afraid to create the same post for multiple social media sites. Cross-posting can get those important posts as much visibility as you can muster. You want to try to reach as large an audience as possible with your posts, so be generous with your sharing.

4. Testing and Analysis

If you aren’t using data from past posts to improve future ones, your are missing out, big time.

Create different versions of your posts, A/B test to see what gets more links. Or, see how your posts look “incognito”, so you know what other users are seeing on their end with their different devices and browsers.

Close analysis takes effort, but can be rewarding if you’re willing to put in a little time and research.

5. Keep Calm and Post Often

It’s hard to know exactly how often you should post, or repost, content. On their blog, Buffer does a great job of explaining the methodology behind their own social media management and post frequency. Much of the data they provide can help you to form your own social media strategy and anticipate its success.  It is very important to keep an eye on the analytics coming out of your posts. Social media is a continually changing thing; a repost in November may bring in many more leads than the original post did during the summer. Watch for trends and interesting data, and be sure to take advantage of them!

Art Collectors Examining Marko Stout

By Elizabeth Schwartz

 

000_marko_stout_gallery_pics2The luxury lifestyle writer Joy Donnel said of Marko Stout works, “… today’s art collectors are no longer looking for art that’s just pretty — they want rigor and art that tells a story. As emerging artist Marko Stout enters high-end luxury art markets, many collectors are turning their attention to the vibrancy of his work”.

So who is this artist collectors are seeking out? Marko Stout is a passionately prolific mixed media and installation artist and urban storyteller of sorts. Manhattan-based but in no way bounded, his artistic “limitations” are both ceaseless and seamless. Celebrated for his innate ability to entwine styles of the gritty urban world- particularly NYC with the erotic aura of feminine ferocity, Marko’s inventive work has taken Manhattan by storm; a storm that has no intention of turning into a steady drizzle anytime soon.

It is undeniably refreshing to observe works of art that has a female subject who radiates with vigor, independence and energy. Stout has spent a substantial amount of time during his artistic career capturing what he often refers to as the “grit” of New York City, mainly the Chelsea Area. Grit, grunge, energy, high rent, all of what the city has to offer, Marko Stout harnesses. His trademark graffiti-esque imagery and raw use of color capture the spirit and dynamism of city life with a fervor that is almost aggressive in its approach… a fierce depiction of the contemporary urban female. Stout’s pop art style is heavily influenced by artistic wizards like Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Richard Hamilton, Jackson Pollock and Jeff Koons. However, artist Marko Stout definitely has his own style marking this mid-career artist highly pursued by today’s contemporary art collectors. Current prints have an average gallery selling price of $16,000 to $60,000, depending on the work, dimensions and edition size. Stout’s installation works are selling for $80,000 to $460,000.

Marko Stout and his most recent series entitles, “Chelsea Girls” have hit the road on an international tour, giving collectors many opportunities to view this work first hand and even pick up a couple pieces for their contemporary artists collections. Starting this past April in New York, his work is on a 10-city world tour that kicked off at the ArtExpo and Freeze shows in New York City (where else?) and will wrap up in Paris in June of 2016. In between the show will hit Beurs van Berlage in Amsterdam, Berlin, Toronto, San Diego, Miami, Stuttgart, Los Angeles and Palm Beach.

The Things to Consider Before Buying a Coffee Shop for Business

The ultimate reason for putting up a business is to make profit. The return of investment depends on several factors. If you want to buy coffee shops and produce real money from it, you should follow the steps that will bring you into such success.

picture

 

    1. This is the first thing to consider when you buy coffee shops. You may serve the best espresso-based drinks in town but if the target customers can’t see you or hear of your good products, the probability of great sale will decrease. Unlike if you have the perfect location, and you do everything smoothly, you can earn a satisfying gross and end up the first year of your business with full pocket.
    2. When you look for location consider your prospective market. Here are the best locations to choose from when you buy coffee shops:

 

  • If you want to serve coffee drinks to students, search for a location near universities and colleges.
  • If your target customers are the working class, consider the business district.
  • Other potential locations that have diversified classes of people are airports, medical facilities, and shopping malls
  1. Bar Counter Layout. It adds attraction to your business if your shop is designed glamorously or elegantly. However, the layout design matters as well. When you buy coffee shops, check the bar area. The layout must be made for the speed and efficiency of your staff. The speed of service affects the sale. Customers easily get irritated when it takes forever before they get their orders. The pace of works depends on your workers and on your workstation.
  2. Menu. Plan your menu beforehand. Most often than not, those who fail in coffee business are those who are not espresso based drinker themselves. They can’t judge which the good espresso based drinks are and which are not. If coffee is not your passion then consider it again before you buy coffee shops. The main goal in a coffee business is to encourage your customers to buy the espresso based drinks over the usual house coffee. The price largely differs, therefore the more espresso based beverages you sell the higher is your earnings.

These are the major concerns that matter not to mention the proper pricing of your items. When a majority of your customers complain about your price, it only means you’re pricing them too high. You need to adjust it if you want to keep your market. However, if nobody complains at all, there’s a possibility that you are pricing it too low. Plan the pricing along with your menu.
