USING A CUSTOMER RELATIONSHIP MANAGEMENT TOOL

A CRM tool helps you nurture relationships with your referral leads, by allowing you to:

  1. Maintain a database of your customers in one central place. This includes their contact details, personal information (birthdays, social accounts, interests). Also, how they prefer to be communicated with (times of day, phone/email/text etc).
  2. Categorise your leads. Buyers, sellers, new leads, VIP customers – however you might want to categorise them. This will help you tailor your communication with them based on what type of customer they are.
  3. Automate your communications with them. You will be able to set up automated emails and text messages and schedule phone calls and follow ups. As a result, your communication is quicker quicker and easier.
  4. Keep track of their responses. You will also be able to see how customers responded to those emails. You can make notes after a phone call and so on. That way you have all customer details in one central place to refer back to later.
