All the digital tools you need, tightly integrated and easy to use. And unlimited help from our expert project managers and SharpSpring experts, who help you reach your full growth potential.
Why all in one marketing software?
All you need is actually out there, somewhere. WordPress for your website. Mailchimp for your emails. Salesforce as your CRM. Leadpages for your landing pages. And thousands of other marketing tools. But then you're supposed to make them all work together, too.
Maybe you'll recognize the following scenario. Several tools. Each department with their own niche software. Duplicated contacts. Sales have no idea what a contact has received from marketing, or even from their other sales colleagues. Marketing has no idea if all relevant contacts have been invited to the next webinar or event.
Who has time to connect and integrate all of these tools? Even to create something as simple as a standard inbound sales funnel?
The more systems you have, the harder it is to get anything done. When you edit one of them, you'll have to edit all of them. Each time, some connection risks breaking.
And finally, which system tracks where sales actually come from? Even with only the marketing and sales software separated, most companies find it near impossible to track the sales ROI of marketing activities.
What features should an all in one marketing system contain?
First, it's important to realize that the purpose of an all-in-one system is to simplify your life.
This does not help:
Just packing features into a toolbox makes your life more complicated. Then it's better to go with various different tools. At least you won't need to navigate a bunch of features you don't need.
Secondly, an all-in-one tool, if well developed, can help you achieve things you can't with stand-alone tools, even if you connect them. For example the ability to see the full history of each contact, from first touch to closed deal and thereafter.
Having all data in one place enables you to see which marketing activities actually lead to sales, rather than just clicks or conversions.
So what are the tools included in such a toolbox?

Can an all in one marketing system be very good at anything in particular?
Yes! There is one particular thing that an all in one marketing and sales software can do that no other niche player can do, and that particular thing happens to be the most important in your digital sales process: Keeping track of your contacts and communicating with them throughout their entire digital buying journey,
This is crucial because today it's not enough for marketing to send generic messages that are disjointed from what actually happens i the sales process. Marketing needs to support the sales process, not promote the brand for its own sake.
And conversely, sales can't do a good job by themselves. It used to be that as a sales person, you could prospect, engage and close all by yourself. Today, it doesn't work that way. Gartner says that today, B2B buyers use digital channels at all stages of their buying journey. You simply need to reach your prospects online. And to do that, you need a marketing department that works with you in each of your sales projects.
Only an all in one marketing and sales system can do this.
Doesn't marketing become very complex with all these features?
For first time users of a Marketing Automation system, all these features may feel overwhelming. But don't worry. Unlike other vendors and agencies, we're not here to give you a system and let you learn it by yourself. Rather, we're like your partners and will help you get started quickly with the basics, and then expand from there until you've implemented a great individualized marketing machine.
- We usually start with a 6 month plan.
- Then, we build the basics to get you started quickly. Check out our post How to get started with Inbound Marketing to understand exactly what these steps entail.
- We help you implement each of the steps. In the beginning, we'll do most of the work together, through shared screen sessions with your own coach and project manager.
Then we repeat, but with the next cycle of slightly more advanced features. Each iteration will increase your confidence and show you how to implement increasingly more advanced marketing processes.
