Data-Focused, Strategic Thinking

At the heart of our CRM strategy support lies a deep understanding of your data. To be truly strategic, businesses must harness the power of their data to identify trends, uncover insights, and capitalise on opportunities for revenue growth. You can do this through data analysis – what is your data telling you?

74% of businesses say CRM software improves customer data access. If you’re without a CRM or unhappy with your current one, it might be time to explore other solutions, including our top recommendations. 

Your CRM system stores large amounts of customer data including purchase history, and their likes and dislikes, if you understand their preferences, you can identify what works. If you need assistance with this, we can help you unlock the full potential of your customer database through an audit which we cover below.

Deep-Dive Analysis and Leadership Reports

We recommend doing a deep-dive audit of your CRM performance to date. This involves examining your KPIs and identifying opportunities for revenue growth. An audit will answer what steps you need to make to optimise your CRM strategy. If you need help with an in-depth audit, we can help you and provide a top-level leadership report that we will talk you through so you know exactly what to do next for your CRM goals. 

Centralised Inbox

Have you thought about streamlining your lead generation and management processes? You can integrate seamless lead generation forms with your CRM system. Incoming leads will flow into your centralised team inbox, where they are prioritised and assigned for follow-up. It’s all about timely response to new leads and grabbing the opportunities to convert! 

Lead Recycling

We understand that not every lead converts immediately but by delivering relevant content and incentives based on what you found out in your deep dive analysis (scroll back up) – it’s the process of bridging your cold leads back from the dead into the sales and marketing pipeline so that they can be re-engaged. (This is not to be mistaken for lead nurturing.)

Outbound Marketing

Re-engaging your dead leads can be completed via outbound marketing. We plan it strategically to pave the way for sales talks. For example, send messages that connect with your audience, setting the stage for conversions. Whether it’s emails, social media, or personalised content, outbound efforts are all about nurturing leads and making sales easier.

Live Performance Dashboards

Finally, you should look at the detailed analytics within your CRM system to track performance. Monitor your conversion rates, identify areas of opportunity in real time and use the data to make your decisions. Completing this ensures that your CRM strategy remains agile and responsive to changing market dynamics.
