It’s vital for most small business owners to keep close tabs on their customers and prospects, but many of them struggle to keep track of those critical visitors to their website, as they typically have an email inbox that is filled to overflowing at all times. Now they don’t have to allow these vital leads to disappear into the ocean of emails they get each day, with a new Salesforce contact form and sales tracking tool.
Salesforce is providing users of the most popular blogging platform with a time-saving plugin: WordPress-to-Lead for Salesforce CRM. Because of its open-source nature and incredible ease-of-use content management system, WordPress has quickly become not only the most popular blogging platform in use today, but also a pillar that many business websites are being built with by many developers, including us here at Studio 2108.
Salesforce.com recently announced a big advancement in the way small businesses can stay in touch with customers and prospects, with the new WordPress-to-Lead system. In the past, WordPress users had to copy and paste leads into Salesforce — a onerous, time consuming and messy process to be sure.
But now businesses that use WordPress as their primary web platform have a way to add contacts and customers automatically to their Salesforce CRM. This new Salesforce/WordPress Plugin creates a better solution by creating contact forms that can then send their data directly to the customer’s Salesforce website.
These contact forms can contain a wide range of either required or optional fields, to include any depth of detail desired, and can be easily added to any – or all – pages within a WordPress site. A sidebar widget can also be added, to make the Contact Us form ubiquitous to every page on the entire site.
The days of letting valuable leads disappear “down the rabbit hole” are over! And while many current Salesforce customers will be jumping for joy once they hear this news, those business owners that are not yet customers of Salesforce.com can still try the software for free for 30 days, to experience the functionality for themselves. Just another reason why a Content Managed Site using WordPress is the best option around today.
