How Can You Use the Full Power of CRM SOFTWARE?
When I started a business in photography, I only intended to target the locals in my town where I had established my studio. Of course I must have been too myopic. I never took time to visualize and I needed to grow and that growth of a business takes into account various elements concerning the market.
Being an experienced and talented photographer, I started to experience a slight growth in my customer base within the first six years after establishing the business. Though I had initially intended to work solely from the studio, I started receiving offers from clients who wanted me to cover some outdoor special events such as weddings, birthday’s parties and other events. I hadn’t been advertising my business by that time, but my professional and quality work must have drawn clients to come seeking for me. Such offers were lovely and had a good pay and therefore they were totally irresistible.
With time, I realized that I had several repeat customers who wanted me to cover an event for them, or referred their friends to me, but all this time I didn’t have enough tailored information about their specific needs which I contemplated was wrong. If another photographer of the same caliber as me was to establish himself in the town and do business differently touching on the specific needs of the clients, then there were chances that I could no longer be in business or I’d not be as competitive as I’m supposed to be, I reasoned.
This made me to research on the best way in which I could manage my clients while at the same time ensuring that I maintained the best practices and professionalism in my work. That when I came across an intuitive tool called CRM (Customer Relationship Management Program). In my opinion, any business worth its salt and which is clearly focused on business growth, needs to have such a software which can help the management of clients easily from the click of a button. There are tons of free CRM program online, but you have to choose which fits the needs of the business appropriately.
