Sales automation, when integrated with a CRM system, can help small businesses do more with less. By eliminating repetitive tasks, business owners can focus on growing their business, instead of just managing it. Here’s what you need to know about sales automation and how it can drive your business forward.
For small businesses, every penny of investment counts. When it comes to software integrations, businesses can become overwhelmed with options. The right software stack can help your business perform better and save both time and money, all for a relatively nominal investment. Here’s what you need to know about choosing the right software stack for your business:
Your company’s software package can go one of two ways: You can either leverage all the tools you need to run your business effectively, or you can amass a collection of tools you pay for each month and don’t know how to use. Web developers call a foundational set of software working together as a “stack.” The right stack will help you achieve your business goals and shave repetitive tasks from your workload.

Agile CRM is a small and medium business web-based CRM (Customer Relationship Management) and automation software solution that helps companies “Sell & Market Like the Fortune 500.” It is the perfect solution for small companies that are looking for the best value for their marketing dollars and return on investment (ROI) for a CRM software solution.
Any client-facing professional who has used a Customer Relationship Management (CRM) system for work understands the incredible value it can provide. These systems integrate with accounting, marketing, and other software applications. They collect all of the information you need in one easy-to-access place, and improve management’s ability to provide direction and encouragement. Of course, the system only works if people are willing to use it.
Rolling out any type of new software or platform for your company is going to have hiccups and frustrations. Since CRM touches so many aspects of your business, compatibility, versatility, and customization are crucial factors. If you attempt to implement a CRM platform that doesn’t work with your existing applications, you’re going to have a difficult time getting everything copasetic without aggravating your usual operations. A failed software launch can be incredibly disruptive, so take the time to fully investigate the capabilities of a CRM platform and the issues you’re likely to encounter with it before committing to it.
Welcome to Marketing Fridays episode seven! Today we are going to talk about the differences between automatic or automated marketing, or marketing automation automation vs. manual processes or manual marketing, and we are going to highlight the benefits and the pitfalls of both approaches. Then we are going to be discussing visually the differences between automated process and manual process. Let's begin!
First, we have highlighted on the left side the manual marketing process and on the right, the automated marketing process. I came up with different tactics to compare these two types of processes, so you can really figure out what are the benefits of doing automated marketing in the end.
So the first one says time for setup. On average it will take pretty much the same time to setup manual processes as well as automated processes, in the sense that both of them require similar things such as email templates or steps in order to begin the process of marketing. You might have a little more work to do for automated marketing in terms of working with technology, but let's say that an average it's going to be about the same.
