Lars is also the author of CRM For Dummies, part of the globally acclaimed “For Dummies” series of books. Listen to host Eric Dye & guest Lars Helgeson discuss the following: Why is Customer Relationship Management so important for every business? How can a CRM be used as a marketing tool? What makes Greenrope stand out from its competitors? How have you seen companies leverage their CRM in the age of COVID-19? What can you tell us about the give back CRM initiative Greenrope launched earlier this year? TIP: I would suggest every business owner take the time to model and understand their customer journeys. See the entire process, from initial awareness of your brand to purchase and beyond. This will help put into context all of your decisions, so you know how they impact how people buy from you. Become familiar with the entire customer lifecycle, and you will be able to influence that lifecycle. Lars Helgeson has been in the Internet marketing space since 2000, when he co-founded one of the world’s first email service providers, CoolerEmail. As a pioneer in responsible email marketing, he grew CoolerEmail to a global software company specializing in marketing communication with over 1,500 clients. In 2010, after spending several years designing and implementing a more comprehensive way to meet the needs of small and mid-sized businesses, he launched GreenRope. GreenRope is the world’s first and only Business Operating System, a cloud-based platform that simplifies and consolidates a company’s sales, marketing, and operations. GreenRope currently provides technology solutions to over 3,000 companies worldwide. In 2017, Lars published CRM For Dummies, part of the globally acclaimed “For Dummies” series of books. In the book, he covers strategies and tactics that make a successful CRM. At almost 400 pages in length with 200 charts and diagrams, it is both comprehensive and easy to read. Lars earned Bachelor of Science and Master of Science degrees in Mechanical Engineering from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, NY. He also has an MBA from the Robert Anderson School at the University of New Mexico. He served in the United States Air Force for 4 years, working in the Air Force’s space test program, Air Force Research Laboratory, and Ballistic Missile Defense Organization. He enjoys travel, stand-up paddleboarding, mountain biking, and ice hockey, and practices yoga whenever the forces of the universe are not aligned to keep him at his computer. This information is also available on Lars’s Wikipedia page. In the past several years, Lars has been a finalist multiple times for the San Diego Business Journal’s Most Admired CEO and Information Technology Executive of the Year, and a finalist for San Diego Magazine’s Top Tech Exec Award. Helgeson has also been named a Top Ten Most Inspiring Leader in Sales Lead Management Software by the Sales Lead Management Association for the second consecutive year. Fine Magazine also featured Lars and GreenRope in a 2017 issue. Lars grew up in Southern California, the son of a science teacher and a social worker. From his father, he learned about science and math and developed a thirst for knowledge, always asking “why”. From his mother, he learned the importance of empathy and compassion, and why we must take time to put ourselves in the shoes of others to truly understand them. The combination of these led him to pursue a technical career, while forever striving to incorporate the human element, connecting heart and mind to build stronger relationships. This brought him to strike out on his own after his military service, to find ways to help businesses through software that created efficiencies without detaching from the company’s greater purpose.

You may want to explore: Google Ads Social media marketing (on platforms like Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, and Twitter) Remarketing Display/banner advertising Streamline user experience Ultimately, no matter how revolutionary your products are, if your customers cannot easily navigate your website and pay for their purchase, they are going to look to your competitors for a better experience.

Accelerate conversions. The minute your customer hits that ‘checkout’ button, every subsequent action, redirect, etc. needs to quick and efficient. The faster the process, the lower the risk of the customer having second thoughts and abandoning their cart before making payment. Allow customers to choose from a wide variety of payment methods, including credit card, digital wallet, EFT, and more. A perfect example of a checkout and payment solution that does all of this is Shopify Checkout. Leverage social media Along with offering ecommerce entrepreneurs a host of marketing opportunities, social media also provides the chance to forge genuine connections with your customers, as well as your potential customers. Be sure to use these platforms to engage with your followers, ask for their feedback, and work hard towards securing their loyalty. As mentioned above, it is indeed worthwhile embracing paid advertising, but the great news is that there are many other ways to promote your business organically. From running competitions to offering exclusive discounts to first responders, the options are practically endless. Now that you know how to make your ecommerce store stand out, you can take action to ensure happier customers and a more attractive bottom line. Good luck!

7 Office Automation Tools for Small Business Owners
Considering office automation tools for your business? Here we will look at some common and popular automation tools that will increase efficiency and productivity and reduce errors so that your small business can do better. Photo by Digital Buggu from Pexels Why Automation Works? Office automation tools take care of many simple and mundane tasks a business needs in an attempt to free up time and space for employees to focus on more complex tasks. So, most office automation tools will help with: Communication like call routing through an IVR system. Administrative tasks such as data entry, math, billing, etc. Appointment scheduling. Email and social media management. One-stop automation solution for all projects. Project and content management, and so on. The purpose of using automation to complete these tasks is to enable employees to not waste time doing mundane, repetitive tasks. Furthermore, having automation take care of it ensures more accuracy and less human error. This way, your small business can increase productivity and efficiency. Office Automation Tools Your Small Business Needs So, what office automation tools can your business and office use to improve the way it functions? A One-Stop Automation Platform You may consider a platform like Zapier and IFTTT that allow you to create automated tasks on all essential applications such as Google Calendar, social media apps, Slack, etc. You can access all your important business communication tools, projects, and files in one place. IVR System Set up a call routing system with interactive voice response (IVR) from a cloud-based phone service provider like United World Telecom. This will allow you to organize and distribute incoming calls across different numbers and phone lines. You can add a custom greeting, have the IVR interact with the caller, identify the purpose of the call, and route the caller to the right department through a menu of options. This will help you handle large call volumes. And in some advanced cases, the IVR may even assist the caller in completing an action without the help of an employee or agent. For example, helping the caller process a payment or renew a subscription, etc. Manage Projects Better Consider project and content management systems such as Teamwork, Slack, Monday, Trello, etc., to create a well-organized space for your office tasks and projects. These platforms help you track your progress, log time, and encourage collaboration between team members. They have access to G Suite, Microsoft, and chat tools so that all your work is available in one place. Social Media Management Social media management is essential for many small businesses. In fact, for many, it is the starting point and first means of communication. And so, how you manage your social media content can determine how viewers perceive your small business. Social media management tools like Hootsuite, Social Pilot, Buffer, etc., are easy-to-use office automation tools that can really support your social posting and help you achieve the rankings you desire. Marketing Automation Tools Some of the other important office automation tools are the ones that assist your marketing and sales efforts. ActiveCampaign and Leadformly are two such tools. ActiveCampaign combines advanced email marketing and standard CRM tools into one software optimized for businesses of every type and size. Leadformly, on the other hand, helps you automate your sales process so you can convert leads to sales quicker by increasing conversion rates. More importantly, it helps you do so without needing to build an entire sales team. For Words and Grammar Businesses, small to large, are leaning on content heavily to make their digital marketing strategies successful. However, not everyone can afford a content writer and, let’s face it, not everyone understands grammar. Praise the almighty for Grammarly, a proofreading tool that identifies basic grammatical and spelling errors. Now, Grammarly won’t transform your writing into the next Shakespearean play but it will clean it up at the very least. Calendly Some of the most important office automation tools are the ones that help you schedule and make appointments. Calendly is such an automation tool that is easy and fun to use. Set appointments, update preferences, add links in emails, events are automatically added to the calendar from one’s email, and more. Calendly makes it easy to create and keep track of appointments and meetings with various people. Automate to Succeed Office automation tools can really take the stress off of you and your employees as they handle simple, menial, and repetitive tasks. Make your office space more productive and efficient with these tools. Automation is on the rise and there will be more tools available to make our lives easier in the very near future.
