4. Get Integrated Software & Set Up Your Marketing and Sales Process
A properly constructed business website is: an information portal, a place for social engagement, a marketing device, and an engine to manage business process, prospects, and customers - all LINKED together for easy analysis. These analytical and business links create enormous productivity benefits.
In Step 4 you should install software to run your business AND internet marketing. At minimum the software should include: a Content Management System, Analytics, an eMail Marketer, an eCommerce Shopping Cart (or at least a method to take in online payments), and a Customer Relationship Manager.
All of this software is easily available online. What is NOT generally available is software that integrates the necessary business and marketing functionality. To that end we recommend our own software which you can read about here: Premium Marketing Software.
We also offer a suite of training materials to get you up to speed quickly with our software. Check out the videos to see more of the Persuasionworks system in action.
