Being successful in sales requires always being able to ask for the business and having the right information at the right time to help your customers understand why they should do business with you. I worked in copier sales for 7 years and we worked off sales leads and cold calls to gain business. At that time we had no CRM or stock management software that actually linked the customers we were calling on to a main application or that helped to manage our warehouse of parts and incoming shipments. This had it’s drawbacks if we had someone leave the organization and their record keeping was less than stellar. This basically meant we were starting all over in that particular geography.
Having a stock control system that integrates these functions and makes them available on a web based interface can help improve the profitability and efficiency of your business. By having a stock management software solution your teams can know which products are available and better identify upsell opportunities. Management will know which products are most profitable and which products are not moving at all with a simple glance. You can increase your speed and response to your customer allowing you to capitalize on market events without having to stop and lose precious time and momentum.

When developing blogs and websites online the number one rule to drive search traffic is having timely, relevant, and updated content. Through the development of various platforms like Mojavi the goal has always been to create a network of developers that can contribute and enhance an open architecture. With so many sites and blog starting up every week on the web the need to create a niche is becoming more important along with content. That is why I am always looking for sites like outdoorbasecamp.com where they specialize in outdoor review content and create a community where others can contribute. You can see and participate in their forum to share your thoughts and experiences with others and gather suggestions from other outdoor enthusiasts.
They have created timely and fresh content on various outdoor activities and this will lead to a loyal customer and attract local and national experts to contribute to their site. As their success builds the search engines will pick more of their content and this will increase traffic and help them grow their brand. I can see that they will become a point of reference for some of the more popular outdoor activities like kayaking, biking, and spelunking.
