Hello again, and welcome to another installment of Feature Friday! We hope you were able to get use from the last video we made and perhaps even tracked an open email or two. This time around, we’ll be going through an individual contact profile and showing you one of the most helpful tools to help you in a follow up: previous conversations. Seeing a conversation history helps provide context for an important future follow up, and we have improved the way you see conversation histories to make it more clear as to whether the message is incoming or outgoing as well as improved the filtering options.
Check it out below!
Happy March! It’s hard to believe that we’re already two months into 2014, but here we are. It’s been a few months since we’ve done one of these, the last time we checked in, we had just moved offices. It’s a lovely space, really, and we’re filling it rather nicely with new employees. Since the beginning of this year, we’ve brought on three new full-time hires: Drew Lepp as our Lead UX Designer, Alistair Potts as our VP of Sales, and Grey Gyllenhaal as our newest Customer Guru, bringing our team to 19 people and four dogs.
And we’re not stopping there. We’re always looking for awesome people to join our team, so if you think that’s you get in touch! As always, you can keep up with our goings on via Facebook or Twitter.
Here’s a little bit about the new crew:
When you want to get more mileage out of your existing workforce, how can you think outside the box to improve efficiency in your small team? There’s approximately one million businesses in the United States with 10 or fewer employees, who altogether account for some $1.5 trillion in sales annually. A Fortune 500 corporation may have the advantages of resources and scale, but a small business can easily change their business structure in order to quickly reap the benefits of new policies.
It’s that time of the year, folks. Keller Williams Family Reunion is back, and this year it’s in beautiful Phoenix, Arizona. And needless to say, I’m jealous of the team we’re sending over: Alexandra (@gibsondm), Brent (@brentsum), and Brian (@bpesin) — do say hi to them if you see them! We’re at booth 112 this year.
Being the KW Family Reunion, you know that there’ll be a ton to see and learn right from the get-go. It wouldn’t be a Family Reunion without it. Whether this is your first Family Reunion or you’re a veteran, here’s a quick checklist of things to make sure you get done before the conference starts.
At Contactually HQ, we’re always looking for ways to keep you in the know when it comes to everything we have going on. From sharing new features, to discovering new use cases for those proven tried and true, to establishing best practices and beyond, we try to do everything that we can to supercharge your networking efforts to raise that coveted ROI.
With that in mind, we’re kicking off a new blog series called Feature Fridays today. In the series, Susan Watkins, our lovely customer success manager, will go over aspects of our platform in detail so that you can best leverage them for your own business.
In this month’s Feature Friday, Susan will cover how to track email opens and clicks, email send status, mass bucketing and tagging and the new Outlook plug-in. Watch the video below to learn more!
If you haven’t yet heard, the folks over at 37signals just dropped some big news for us in the CRM space. First, 37signals is shifting the company’s entire focus to Basecamp, our favorite project management software platform, from here on out. This means that the future of Highrise, one of the leading small business CRMs, is up in the air. Additionally, in keeping with their new single-product focus, 37signals is changing its name to Basecamp.
Moving forward, we will be a one product company. That product will be Basecamp.
Like many people, when I hear the words “software company,” I first think of Initech from the movie Office Space. So naturally, when I decided to spend the month of January working at Contactually, I harbored fears that my experience there would be comparably miserable. Like Peter, Office Space’s main character, I actually did have multiple bosses and overhear sales calls all day. Once, I was even asked if I got the memo. Thankfully, that’s where the similarities ended.
So if you’ve ever wondered what Contactually really looks like- what goes down on the other end of your support ticket, what the sales team says after hanging up the phone, or what they’re wearing (if anything)- read on to see ten of the biggest surprises about working at Contactually.
Happy Monday, everybody! We’re thrilled to kick off our week by announcing our new partnership with Zillow, the leading real estate and home-related information marketplace. With this partnership, Contactually is now part of the Zillow Tech Connect Program, which allows technology companies to partner with Zillow to integrate their systems for the brokers and agents that use Zillow for marketing efforts.
What does this mean for real estate professionals on both Contactually and Zillow? Now, you’ll be able to seamlessly integrate your Contactually account with Zillow’s own in-house contact management software. With the new integration, Contactually will automatically detect when you receive a new lead from Zillow, and will subsequently add that lead to your contact database. Then, you can use Contactually’s various engagement tools like Programs and email templates in order to instantly communicate with your new lead.
Overall, this partnership will allow users to work with all of their leads and contacts from one central location and will help eliminate tedious, manual data entry. Best of all, the integration will allow professionals to start building strong relationships with leads in order to convert them into customers and close more sales.
