What does it take to make people work better and faster? This question has plagued researchers and business owners for years and it seems that the answer is still yet to be found. It’s natural for humanity to try to improve things. From wheel invention to car engines - it seems that nothing is ever good enough.
There are numerous ways to improve productivity. Online apps can help you track your activities and analyze sleep patterns. Productivity workflows such as “Get Things Done” can relieve the stress of having too many tasks on your list. Lastly, go to YouTube and you’ll see hundreds of free videos from productivity coaches in addition to paid coaching lessons. But while we’re getting better at self-improvement and personal development, employee efficiency is a trickier concept. Unlike personal productivity, workplace efficiency is a sensitive topic, for it involves more than one person - the employee and the boss.
When there are two people involved in the process, conflict of interests is unavoidable. Let's take a deeper look at this conflict.
If you use Bitrix24 on-premise, we encourage you to try a new MailChimp Integration module, developed by YouNet SI, one of the leading Bitrix24 partners in Vietnam & S.E.A.
The Newsletter MailChimp Integration module allows Bitrix24 users to take full advantage of all MailChimp newsletter functions directly from their Bitrix24 system interface.
RealtimeBoard is a virtual whiteboard that lets your team create, discuss and share ideas. Each board is a blank, infinite space where you can work on any task in ideation, design or business strategy. If you’re running low on space just zoom out or create a whole new board.
Yesterday we released the beta version of CRM Marketing. This means that you can run marketing campaigns directly from your Bitrix24 CRM.
Currently, you have five campaign types at your disposal – mass mail, bulk SMS, voice broadcasting (robocalling), instant messaging and retargeting for Google Adwords and Facebook. If you are on a free plan, you’ll only have access to email marketing campaigns limited to 5,000 messages a month (daily limits apply as well).
If you’ve watched our previous release webinars, then you know the strategy behind our CRM. First, we think that modern CRM must help companies find new clients and prospects. This is why Bitrix24 comes with a variety of lead capturing tools (email, phone calls, social media, website forms and live chat). Second, Bitrix24 helps you effectively process the data that enters your CRM, making sure no lead is abandoned or forgotten. Marketing automation is the final piece of the equation.
Now that CRM Marketing is available to you, you gain two important advantages. You can segment your database and craft different marketing messages to different audiences. And you can fully automate lead nurturing processing, building email sequences and using omni-channel approach to make sure your message is really heard.
As usual, if you have any questions or need help with marketing campaign setup, our partners are at your disposal.
Since CRM Marketing is in beta, we are happy to hear your feedback and suggestions. Please use the form inside the module to share your ideas.
