Salesforce-app-blog-images3-1-1024x536

Anyone who is in the business of lead generation and direct marketing will have heard about Salesforce. It is the most preferred CRM. Countless businesses have integrated their services with Salesforce and why shouldn’t they?

By natively integrating your business app with Salesforce, your app will be built on Salesforce tools, will be certified by their team and it lives inside the their infrastructure(including your data). It will enable you to reach your leads and customers directly from within your Salesforce account.

“Companies already using the Salesforce platform, which is a significant percentage of forward looking companies, are going to want to find solutions that are built on the Salesforce platform, because the benefits of doing this are enormous,” says Jonathan Sapir, founder of Work-Relay – a collaborative work management platform.

For organizations that have already invested in the Salesforce platform, leveraging the power of the platform becomes the next natural course of action.

So now let’s move on to the distinct advantages of using a natively integrated Salesforce App.

1.The first and foremost is the ease and accessibility the integration provides. Businesses do not have to worry about syncing data or accessing it.

A fast, single database where all your customer data is stored grants a convenience which increases the speed of tracking data and generating reports.

2. As a natively integrated app, you can benefit from the Salesforce ecosystem, where the revenue opportunity is estimated to be 3 to 4x that of Salesforce itself (Source: IDC’s Salesforce Economic Impact Model, 2016). 84% percent of Salesforce users use a minimum of one partner application. Such a high percentage of users will prove to be a market as good as a gold mine for any business.

3.Salesforce users continue to grow at a rapid pace. According to its 2017 Annual Report, there are more than 150,000 Salesforce customers and the AppExchange is the central place where these customers go to find applications to extend their CRM.

As the premier marketplace for business applications, customers are assured that if you are listed on the AppExchange, you are trustworthy. This will help businesses gain exposure for your product with the Salesforce marketplace.

4.The AppExchange considers itself to be a family of partners who work in close collaboration and interact with one another. You can, as a business, network with others who have been long time members of the AppExchange to learn best practices and grow your business.

Many Salesforce partners also leverage other partner solutions built into their product to hike functionality and to solve their own problems.

RVM: The Power Tool for Lead Generation

In this age where consumers need advertising that is not only relevant but also according to their convenience, methods like ringless voicemail come to the rescue. They do not disrupt consumers since they don’t ring their phones and recipients have the option of listening to it whenever they have time.

Taking in view efficiency, if you have a business that involves calling a large number of leads and you feel that your sales team is spending a lot of time calling, and leaving messages instead of closing deals, then Ringless Voicemail is a tool that you must have in your repertoire.

For more efficient lead gen, for both marketing and sales, ringless voicemail is a strong contributor for increasing engagement and conversion rates.

We’ve talked about ringless voicemail before, and why it makes sense for businesses to implement. It is newer to the market, it has not been entirely adopted by companies yet, and it yields higher ROI than most other traditional marketing methods.

RVM has a staggeringly high open rate. So what gives RVM an edge over other marketing services?

  • No charge to recipient
  • Fewer opt-in requirements
  • Begins a human conversation

While many communication channels offer an automated experience, it is also true that a fair share of prospects still want human interaction throughout the sales process. RVM starts that interaction because of its high listen and response rates.

For instance, drop RVMs to your contact list to simplify your cold call prospecting. You won’t have to worry about calling them at the right time or remembering the best parts of your pitch. All you have to do is record a targeted message, complete with a call-to-action to incentivize a response, and save on the plenty of time lost leaving voicemails one at a time. And since those leads haven’t really missed intrusive and poorly timed calls, there is no negative association with your voicemails. Their curiosity and the power of your sales message getting across are the only things that stand in the way of getting a call back.

The single, most obvious way your contacts can learn more about the voicemail is by listening to your RVM. If they call back, you can safely assume that the lead wants to talk shop, otherwise they wouldn’t have been wasting their time. By forwarding interested lead calls directly to your sales team, they are spending more time closing deals than warming them.

RVM is a competent medium for lead generation, lead nurturing and brand engagement. It proffers the marketing and other internal teams with a new channel to:

  • Provide product or service updates and alerts
  • Communicate with employees in the field without interrupting their work
  • Remind contact of useful product/service tips and tricks
  • Confirm appointments for scheduling
  • Drop messages with new CTAs to trigger further engagement

An average marketer spends a good chunk each day of their week on repetitive tasks that boost low converting marketing channels like email, web pages, and social media. Implementing a ringless voicemail strategy into a traditional marketing strategy will save resources, time, and increase ROI.
