Time and resources are the biggest reasons for failing with Marketing Automation and CRM implementations
But you don't need to be a technical wizard or hire a full-time resource to use Marketing Automation and CRM software.
Marketing Automation and CRM still feels complex and difficult to grasp for most marketers and sales managers. Too many spend too much time on implementation projects without seeing return on their investment.
That's why we started FunnelBud in 2015.
Marketing Automation and CRM where we help you grow
We don't just provide one of the world's most popular Marketing Automation software. We include marketing automation and CRM experts that act as your own department:
Your MarTech Team
We are your team and your marketing automation partner. We will help you with all of your Marketing Automation and CRM questions, and get the most out of SharpSpring's great system.
Why are we one of SharpSpring's premium partners?
How can we include incredible, proactive support, project management and strategic help at no cost?
The "secret sauce" is our unique business model and our internal processes. Both are geared towards a long-term relationship rather than short-term gains. So far, our churn rate is negative (meaning we get more customer referrals than customers cancelling their license).
Our customers include B2B companies, both large and small, from various industries. Here are some examples:
- Institutions such as Centre for Business History
- Consultants and software developers such as Strikersoft
- Enterprise and government software vendors such as Cambio
- And many more both small and large organizations mainly in B2B
Are you considering a system? Don't forget that the biggest part of your success is dependent on what the vendor can help you do! Choose a partner who is invested in helping you grow.
This fed my desire to help other businesses accomplish the same results. So I became a Marketing Automation consultant, primarily working with the then popular solutions Hubspot, Pardot and Salesforce.
It was during this time that I discovered an unsettling but very common situation. Most businesses who had purchased these solutions were throwing money in the bin! They barely used the systems, and were not getting any results. In fact, that's why they wanted to hire a consultant like me, to fix it!
Turns out, most companies drastically underestimate the amount of time and resources it will take to become successful with a Marketing Automation implementation that generates leads and sales. (But it's well worth it if you do!)
Most companies who invest in Marketing Automation lack the time, resources and experience necessary to get a return on their investment.
So, most companies who purchase a Marketing Automation system end up needing to pay extra to some agency who will help them. That costs a lot. Many times more than the system itself, in fact. And to make matters even worse, when you hire an external agency - what happens when you stop paying? All the expertise disappears with the agency, and you're stuck again.
I don't like that model!
That's why I started FunnelBud. Today, we've grown into a large team who help customers all over the world. We don't lock you into long contracts. We don't try to implement a cookie-cutter standard solution regardless of your unique needs. We don't leave you after the initial implementation. Instead, we are your long-term partner, and we actively work with you continuously to improve your marketing automation and sales processes. We give you strategic advice and help you implement solutions that address your needs.
How this affects you:
- No terms. Quit whenever you want! Turns out, customers love us so much, they don't just stay - they also refer others!
- SharpSpring services included. Consultation, implementations of solutions and processes, active recommendations of best practices and suggested solutions. It's all included. We set up everything so that you can simply execute campaigns and do sales.
- Low cost. You pay for your license, and that's it. We don't charge anything extra for all the help and services you get. For the same services, other agencies charge 5-10x what we do.
Our teams consists of experienced SharpSpring consultants. You will be taken care of by your own project manager who will get to know your business in-depth. We limit the number of customers to 8 per member so that each customer gets the attention they deserve.
Our promise to you is this: We will not just answer your questions. We will try to understand your need, and help you address it in the best way possible.
