Automation is a big buzzword in the business world these days, but are you making use of it? If not, it may be time to start. Automating processes can free up your time and employees’ time so you can spend more effort on growing your business instead of handling administrative tasks. Here’s how you can streamline your business with a few easy automation tools.
CRM and Pipeline Management
CRM (or Customer Relationship Management) is a software system that helps you manage your contacts with customers. It allows you to store information about each person or business, so that you can keep track of who your clients are and what they might be looking for.
Pipelines are tools that help businesses manage their sales processes, including prioritizing leads and assigning them to specific members of the team based on skill set and experience level. They help teams stay organized so they can focus on closing deals without wasting time chasing down unqualified leads.
Email and Text Marketing
Email and text marketing are essential to the success of any business. With a tool like the TW3APP, you can create an autoresponder sequence that sends out automated emails based on a user’s actions. This could be as simple as emailing people who have visited your website but haven’t signed up for a newsletter, or it could be more complex by sending different versions of emails depending on the user’s previous actions (e.g., whether they’ve ordered from you before).
At the same time, you can use text messaging to communicate with customers in real time. Text messages are great for getting quick feedback from customers or announcing promotions that run out quickly—the immediacy makes them ideal for special offers!
Simplify Social Media
Social media is one of the most important aspects of your business. It can be used to connect with customers and promote your products, but in order to be successful with social media you need a plan that works for you. There are countless tools available to help automate some of the work involved with social media management, but which ones should you use?
There are many options available when it comes to automating your social media marketing efforts, including:
- Social media scheduling and automation tools like the Social Planner in the TW3APP.
- Social Media Marketing services like Follr or Tailwind. The easiest way to find out which ones are best suited for your needs is by researching each solution’s features before deciding which ones will best meet your needs as an individual business owner.
Tasks, Invoices & Calendars
When you have a business, it’s important to be organized. You need a calendar to help you keep track of all the tasks that need to be done and appointments with clients. Keeping a calendar is easy with the TW3APP on your phone or computer (or both). Just log in, click “Create new calendar”, and choose which account you want to use for your new calendar. Then give it a name like “Client appointments” or “Tasks & Invoices”.
