You are probably familiar with the quote: “If you don’t take care of your customers, your competitors will…”
Not to mention that your customers are the ones on which your success depends. No matter what industry you come from or what you sell, your customers are here to give you a direction for your business operations. This is why customer satisfaction should be made a priority, and in order to give them what they want or need, you need to understand them first. With that in mind, companies are investing in CRM tools and many are turning to Salesforce to build stronger relationships and get closer to their customers.
To enhance the customer experience, businesses are starting to personalize their outreach with personalized emails, mail/gifts, and more. A personalized experience shows you care about your customers, which is a powerful tool for obtaining and retaining business. One of the best, easiest, and most affordable ways to personalize your communication is through video email. Businesses have begun sending personalized video messages to prospects and current customers. Now, it’s easier than ever to send video emails in Salesforce – all you need is a personalized video platform, like Covideo, that integrates with your Salesforce account.
We’ll walk through how to integrate your accounts and walk you through the steps so you can send Salesforce videos via email. First, let’s explore the capabilities of CRM giant, Salesforce, and why it’s so beneficial for your business.
What is Salesforce?
Today, Salesforce offers the most popular cloud-based CRM platform with over 150,000 customers across the globe.
Its platform is meant for users and developers to develop and distribute custom software. Apart from that, it provides many software solutions within its services. The Salesforce platform comes with a variety of different cloud services including: Sales Cloud, Marketing Cloud, Service Cloud, Community Cloud, Commerce Cloud, Analytics Cloud, App Cloud, Iot Cloud, Health Cloud.
Today, over 70% of Salesforce customers utilize applications that can be found on the Salesforce AppExchange. You can even find more than 3000 applications featured on this online application marketplace for third-party applications. Moreover, this has lead to over 3 million installations. In the first quarter of 2018, even 21% of Salesforce’ revenue came from App Cloud sales!
Why is Salesforce so popular?
Salesforce customers describe this platform as fast, easy and very effective. It is packed with tools and a wide range of personalized products and services in Cloud, Social and Mobile domains. The main purpose of all services and products was to help Wealth Management companies create growth opportunities and adapt quickly to changing capital market conditions.
Not only is the platform fast, easy to use and effective, but Salesforce is also strong in innovation. This company started off its strong track record of innovation by launching the first cloud-based CRM offering. At that time, vendors thought it would never go beyond SMB customers. It has always provided a consistent and predictable release cycle where all customers are upgraded to the latest version in a short time frame. Moreover, their customers are given the ability to get familiar with new features when it suits them the best.
Hence, it is no wonder that Salesforce dominates with a 19.7% market share in the world of CRM.
How do companies use Salesforce?
Many companies are migrating to Salesforce or rely on the Salesforce platform for developing their applications. At the beginning of 2018, even 83% of Fortune 500 companies were Salesforce customers.
The Salesforce platform is being utilized across various industries including communications, tech, financial services, healthcare, manufacture, retail, and others. Today, companies use Salesforce to improve their business organization and enhance communication with their customers, but also internally. For example, Coca-Cola Enterprises relies on Salesforce within multiple business functions, especially in communication and information sharing within customer support and sales. Additionally, the Salesforce platform offers services through which companies can improve analytical data and reporting, customer service and automation of everyday tasks. This platform proved to be very effective for connecting with customers and making detailed customer information communicable. As a matter of fact, during the time of Obama’s presidency, the American government used Salesforce Service Cloud to send personalized emails to users.
