The single most important and indispensable asset of your business is your database. Whether you are into selling technology or laying bricks, the data about your prospective and existing clients is what makes your business unique, and is the largest opportunity for an increase in growth. The way to best maximize the potential of your connections and database is by utilizing an extremely helpful tool known as CRM.

What is a CRM? CRM stands for Customer Relationship Management system. It is software that helps you manage and organize your client database, relationships and interactions.

What is the importance of a CRM? CRM is one of the most critical assets for lead generation as well as creating (and keeping!) a successful relationship with your valuable existing clients. If you really want to understand your customer and their behavior, integrating a CRM system into your website is going to give you the best chance to get your products sold. The idea behind it is to strengthen the relationship - the more likely you will get business and repeat business. This platform keeps track of every email, data point and interaction with the customer so you know exactly what they are exposed to. When you utilize your CRM correctly you can know exactly when you last talked with your client and what was discussed. This also opens the door to automation and scheduling when you want your database to receive messages, updates, discounts etc. so that you have more time to focus on growing your business. Most important of all a CRM is a very good overview of all of your clients. Key insights and trends realized via CRM can transform your business and really show you where and how you should be focusing your time and effort. Creating a one on one relationship as opposed to being a faceless organization will always give you the edge over your competition.

Where should your CRM be integrated? The short answer is your company website. Whether it is for lead generation, information, ecommerce, or all of the above, your website is like a sponge actively soaking up key information. To get access from that information and turn it into leads and sales, you need to connect your website to your CRM. The best way to do this is to present a call to action that requires the viewer to input their name and email address for (ex. free consultation, eligible for discount, etc.). When they click submit it goes instantly into your CRM and you are not only able to follow up with that person viewing your website, but you are also able to see how effective your website is. What is the click-through-rate? Do people want more information? Who is the target customer?

Why do you need CRM? Not only are the customer relations data insights very valuable to your business but there is really an infinite number of strategic takeaways you can use to your advantage toward your business. Here are a few of them:

1. Measuring sales calls- volume, length, and trends
2. Track sales closing rate
3. Pinpoint length of your average sales cycle
4. Understand your customer retention rate
5. Calculate lifetime customer value

5 Reasons Why Your Business Needs Social Media Marketing

If your business has not been using social media for your marketing efforts at this point, you are already behind your competition. To some it is an abstract after thought, that doesn’t generate any revenue. However, to many it is a staple for how their business engages their target consumer and how they gain more lifelong customers. Here are some of the key reasons social media marketing needs to be a part of your marketing efforts.

1. Grow Your Overall Traffic

Operating effective social media campaigns drastically increases your ability to drive your target audience to the content, website, or call to action that you want them to see. Strategically placed, creative social media posts and link placement have the ability to attract thousands of consumers all for free. Now that is a great return on investment!

2. Utilize SEO and Boost Your Site Rank

What is SEO? Search Engine Optimization is the practice of increasing the quantity and quality of traffic to your website through organic search engine results. The more you attract eyeballs with your social media, the higher your site will rank in various search engines like Google, and in return drive more customers to your business.

3. Pinpoint Your Target, and Get Them Again

In the social media-marketing realm we call this targeting and retargeting. With certain channels like Facebook Ads, you can actually decide who you want to see your advertisement by demographic, geographic radius, and even psychographics. Once your target audience engages with your ad, they will continue to see your sponsored content while on that platform.

4. Improve Brand Loyalty

A study at the University of Texas Tech concluded that brands who actively use social media enjoy much higher loyalty from their consumers than those who do not. And it makes sense - When engaging your customer with social media it is a more one on one personal interaction and gives the opportunity to create lasting relationships.

5. Increase Your Bottom Line

And now for the best part, social media marketing is linked to an overall increase in sales. Here is a statistic that says it all, “70% of business-to- consumer marketers have acquired customers through Facebook”. Social media doesn’t just spread your brand awareness, but it creates many opportunities to incentivize your customer to buy what you are selling. Information is king. And with social media marketing you can get your information in front of the people you wish.

Mark you calendars! Because right around the corner on Thursday October 26th HomeAid San Diego is hosting their 15 year celebration “Rey of Hope” event at 6 pm, on the rooftop of the Hotel Rey downtown. Come join us for a fun celebratory evening with friends and business partners to recognize their past achievements, and future plans to continue rebuilding the lives or at—risk homeless families, and individuals. Homelessness is an epidemic in San Diego. An estimated 10,000-15,000 people are without a home on any given night in our county. Nearly one-third of foster children become homeless in the 12-months after emancipation. The numbers are staggering, but the faces of the homeless are much like those belonging to you and me.

Over the Moon Advertising is proud to be a Housing Friend Sponsor for an organization, which has made a tremendous impact within our community since 2002. HomeAid San Diego is dedicated to building multi-unit housing for San Diego’s temporarily homeless men, women and children. HomeAid San Diego counts on an alliance of local building and industry organizations. You can get your ticket and support our homeless in our community today with the link below.

This very special organization has changed the lives of countless people and we are happy to see that they will be continuing their remarkable service towards the less fortunate throughout the community. We are looking forward to this fun night with good friends with an even better cause and we hope to see you there!
