What separates great companies from the rest? Great companies focus relentlessly on their customers. Jeff Bezos notoriously said, “The most important single thing is to focus obsessively on the customer.”
But your business interacts with a lot of customers. It’s difficult to keep up with every contact, lead, and opportunity. Fortunately, Customer Relationship Management (CRM) software can help.
Salesforce is the leading CRM software with a 19.7% share, far ahead of its competitors. There are also over 2,700 apps on their AppExchange, with 3 million installations and 70% customer usage.
Salesforce has over 20 different products to help you connect with your customers and run your business. Having these options is great, but can also be overwhelming.
If you’re feeling overwhelmed by Salesforce, don’t worry. In this post, we’ll guide you through each of Salesforce’s products, so you’ll know which ones are right for your business.
