You’ve heard of cloud computing, right? Stratalux CEO Jeremy Przygode says it’s the norm for businesses today and it’s transforming the way we do business. A recent report shows that over 95% of businesses now operate on a public, private, or hybrid cloud platform. How about your company? Do you have a cloud computing strategy? Here are few reasons why you should consider developing one.

You can save more money

If you choose to migrate to the cloud, you can save a lot of money. Rackspace surveyed 1,300 companies and found that 88% of cloud users experienced significant cost savings and 56% of them noted an increase in profits. With the cloud, you reduce hardware costs because hardware repair and replacement costs are left to the vendor. It also saves on your power bills. Large data centers take up space and produce heat. You won’t have to worry about keeping that area cooled to optimal temperature if your hardware is offsite. You also save on labor and maintenance costs. That means your IT staff can focus on daily needs and development. If your company doesn’t have in-house IT, moving to the cloud will defray third-party hardware repair bills.

The cloud also allows you to take advantage of the pay-as-you-go model – you only pay for software as you utilize it, and it can be canceled at any time. The subscription model helps you avoid the costs that can come with defective software.

You can innovate and experiment

Migrating to the cloud will also help you innovate, experiment, and create new products and services. A study conducted at the London School of Economics and Political Science found that “One of the key ways that cloud computing supports operational and technological innovation is by moving an organization more briskly through the experimental or prototyping stages. With traditional IT models, a decision to prototype a new system generally involves the procurement and installation of expensive hardware, with the associated checks and delays that conventional purchasing requires. Cloud provisioning, on the other hand, can be implemented rapidly and at low cost.”

In other words, with the cloud, you can spend a lot more time on developing strategies and products to help your company grow and less time on maintaining infrastructure and hardware. In addition, because cloud software can be deployed within hours your staff can increase productivity because they won’t have to wait for installation.  

You can be more flexible

Cloud computing also allows you to be more flexible both inside and outside of the workplace. For example, if you need access to data while you are away from the office, you can easily access that data anytime and anywhere through any web-enabled device. With the cloud, you can also offer more flexible working hours to your employees and collaborate with them on the go and in real-time. An effective cloud strategy allows your employees to have more freedom, which yields happier and more productive workers.

You can increase security and protection of sensitive data

If you move to the cloud, you can also experience increased security, privacy, and control – all data sent to the cloud is encrypted and is hosted in a centralized and protected environment. Since your data is stored in the cloud, you can access it no matter what happens to your hardware. Commercient’s SYNC app, for instance, is a cloud-based application that provides a safe and secure environment for integrating data between ERP and CRM systems. The secure cloud environment makes it easier for you to grant your employees varying levels of controlled access to the data you sync into your CRM system. Hence, developing a cloud strategy allows you to take greater control of your data.

Cloud computing strategy or not?

Almost all apps and legacy software have already moved to the cloud. The scalability, flexibility, and increase in employee collaboration make a cloud strategy almost imperative for a growing business.  Cloud computing is also cost-effective, secure, and easy to maintain. A cloud solution simplifies hosting and allows your company to scale up or down as your business needs change. According to John Angove, CEO of Commercient, “In order to be nimble, moving your processes to the cloud is the best option for companies that want to stay competitive.”

The question isn’t whether you should adopt a cloud strategy, but when?

Have you ever wondered what the world’s most successful CEOs do in their daily lives? Do they deprive themselves of sleep? Do they spend all of their time in the office?  We peered into the routines of world’s most successful CEOs and found that most of them have five daily habits in common. We’re not saying you have to emulate their habits exactly, but if you are trying to grow your business it might help to tweak a few of your habits.

They are early risers…

Unsurprisingly, we found that most, if not all, of the world’s most successful CEOs are early risers. For instance, Apple CEO Tim Cook “Wakes up at 3:45 every morning–yes, every morning”. He then does email for an hour, stealing a march on those lazy East Coasters three time zones ahead of him, then goes to the gym, visits Starbucks for more email, then finally to the office to work. ‘The thing about it is, when you love what you do, you don’t really think of it as work. It’s what you do. And that’s the good fortune of where I find myself,” according to Time.

Tim Armstrong, CEO of AOL, also starts his day early; he begins around 5:00 a.m. to “Workout, read, and tinker with the site, and hang out with his middle daughter,” according to the Guardian. And Ursula Burns, the CEO of Xerox, starts her day around 5:15 a.m. and uses the time to get caught up on emails or fit in a workout, according to Business Insider.

As studies show, people who start their day early are more proactive and more productive, so try learning from the pros and start your day early – you’ll get more things done.

…But they don’t deprive themselves of sleep

Many of the world’s most successful CEOs also make it a priority to get enough hours of sleep. For instance, Arianna Huffington, founder and CEO of the Huffington Post, once collapsed from sleep deprivation because of her 18-hour work days. She now says,  “My single most-effective trick for getting things done is to stop doing what I’m doing and get some sleep. There is nothing that negatively affects my productivity and efficiency more than lack of sleep. After years of burning the candle on both ends, my eyes have been opened to the value of getting some serious shut-eye.”

Huffington is not the only one who considers a good night’s sleep a necessity for success. Jack Dorsey, CEO of Twitter and Square, said in a Product Hunt AMA, “I sleep from 11-5a usually. Blackout shades help. Meditation and exercise!”

If you are staying up late every night trying to get more work done, you might want to reconsider that habit. Sleep deprivation can cause many issues, including depression, accidents, and a myriad of health problems. Take a lesson from Marissa Mayer, former CEO of Yahoo, who in 2014 missed an important dinner with top executives because she took a nap. At that point, she had been awake for 20 hours and felt that she would be ineffective without some sleep.

They exercise their minds…

In addition to starting the day early and getting enough sleep, the world’s most successful CEOs also have voracious reading habits. Microsoft CEO Bill Gates, for example, reads every night and makes his way through about 50 books every year. He wrote on his blog, “Reading books is my favorite way to learn about a new topic. I’ve been reading about a book a week on average since I was a kid. Even when my schedule is out of control, I carve out a lot of time for reading.”

Berkshire Hathaway CEO Warren Buffet also finds time to read. He would read up to 1,000 pages a day when he started his investing career and still dedicates about 80% of each day to reading.

If reading seems like a waste of time to you, consider this: studies show that people who read a lot are more likely to be successful. The next time you make your to-do list, try adding a book to the list. You might learn something valuable.

…and they exercise their bodies regularly

The average person does not get the recommended amount of exercise each week. However, the world’s most successful CEOs make sure they include exercise into their daily routines. Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg said during a Q&A session on Facebook, “Staying in shape is very important. Doing anything well requires energy, and you just have a lot more energy when you’re fit.” Zuckerberg likes to work out at least three times a week. He claims that it’s the first part of his morning routine.

Like Zuckerberg, CEO of Virgin Group Richard Branson also includes exercise into his daily routine. Branson begins each day at 5:00 am and starts it with exercise. He is devoted to both running and cycling and told FourYourBodyPress, “I definitely can achieve twice as much by keeping fit. It keeps the brain functioning well.”  

A study published in the Journal Labor of Research shows that employees who work out regularly earn 9% more than those who don’t exercise at all. If you add exercise to your routine, you’ll not only feel better, but you’ll have more energy to complete your daily tasks.  It may also help you be more productive than your less active co-workers.

 They know when to unwind

Managing a company can be stressful, and you’ll find that the world’s most successful CEOs find time to meditate. Salesforce.com’s Marc Benioff, for instance, started to meditate because he says his job at Oracle was so demanding.

He told the San Francisco Chronicle “I enjoy meditation, which I’ve been doing for over a decade — probably to help relieve the stress I what as going through when I was working at Oracle.” Meditation can not only help you relieve stress, but it can help you sleep better, and improve the quality of life for you and those around you, and much more. Marc Benioff, Oprah Winfrey, Jack Dorsey, Arianna Huffington and many other business leaders utilize meditation to great effect.

They take advantage of technology

Successful CEOs know they can’t do it all. With technology, now it’s possible to automate many on-going, time consuming tasks in order to dedicate valuable time to what matters: get more business and keep customers happy. They take time to find out what’s out there, give new technologies a try (such as the cloud and IoT) and make the most out of them to help their companies grow.

Did you know that email marketing is 40x better at acquiring new customers than social media? It’s true. As Research Director at Litmus, Chad White writes, “[email marketing] is the channel where people want to receive communication from brands. Consistently for many years now, the number one channel where people want to hear from brands — it’s not Snapchat, it’s not Twitter — it’s email.”

Therefore, a top-notch email marketing campaign is essential for growing any business. We’ve compiled a list of the five biggest mistakes that email marketers make so that you can avoid them and derive more revenue out of your email campaigns.

#1 Sending emails too often

One of the biggest mistakes that email marketers make is sending too many emails. A survey found that the #1 reason why people unsubscribe from emails is that they are emailed too often; moreover, it shows that people prefer receiving less frequent emails that include valuable and informative content. In fact, a survey from Marketing Sherpa shows that subscribers prefer receiving emails at least once a week or once a month; therefore, f you’re sending out emails daily, you’re probably going overboard and may risk alienating your customers. Don’t  give them a reason to categorize your emails as spam. Instead–put yourself in your customer’s shoes. Think about the vast number of emails they are probably receiving every day–they are not just from your company.

#2 Neglecting a call-to-action link

Another one of the biggest mistakes that email marketers make is neglecting to include a call-to-action link. Every email you send should include a call to action.  It should include links to a landing page that continues the message within the email. Without a call to action, your email viewers won’t know what to do next. After all, the whole purpose of sending the email is to get them do something else, whether it be purchasing your product or setting up an appointment. Campaign Monitor provides a good list of call-to-action examples and offers a few useful call-to-action tips.

#3 Taking the one-size-fits-all approach

Customers are humans, which means they are not all the same, and therefore, cannot be treated the same way. The mistake that many marketers make in email campaigns is sending the same blanket email to all their customers. Personalization is always the way to go when it comes email marketing campaigns. According to Campaign Monitor, marketers who use personalization in their subject lines see 26% more opens. So, the next time you send an email, try to get personal.

#4 Sending lengthy emails

We’ve all received an interminable email that instantly makes us want to dump it in the trash. It’s another big mistake email marketers make – they send out emails that are too long. Marketing emails should make the point quickly and should be easy to read. It should not take your readers several minutes to read your email. If you want to provide your customers with more information on a topic, consider directing them to a specific page on your site where they can read the information in its entirety.  That also means that they might take the time to explore your site further, which can only help your business.

#5 Forgetting to optimize emails for different platforms

There is another big mistake that email marketers make – they forget to preview their messages on different devices and browsers before pushing the send button. According to Nate Kristy, the vice president of marketing at Automational, “Outlook, Gmail, Yahoo, etc., all display emails slightly differently, and all look different on the desktop.,” A study by Litmus in 2015 showed that the greatest number of emails were opened on mobile devices. To avoid the dreaded trash folder, make sure that your emails render correctly, Kristy suggests using an “Email service or marketing automation provider that has responsive design technology built in.” It will definitely help your email campaign in the long run.

This is the age of the customer, and you need to tailor every marketing effort toward keeping your customers interested in your brand. Sending personalized, thoughtful, optimized emails is one way to do that.

Los negocios pequeños y medianos merecen más crédito del que normalmente reciben. No es correcto asumir que simplemente por ser un “pequeño negocio” no puedes competir con los grandes. Si crees lo suficiente en tu empresa te darás cuenta de que tienes casi las mismas oportunidades que otros de competir -y ganar- en ventas con grandes empresas.

No te excluyas automáticamente sólo porque no eres tan grande como tu competencia. Usa estos tips para competir en ventas con grandes empresas y mostrarles a todos quién llegó para quedarse:

Aprópiate de tu nicho

Ser pequeño te da grandes ventajas por sobre grandes compañías porque puedes enfocarte en ser excelente en una o varias partes del negocio en lugar de tratar de ser todo para todos. Enfoca completamente tus esfuerzos en esto.

Ser un negocio más pequeño a menudo significa ser excelente en lo que haces. No necesitas preocuparte por competir con las grandes compañías por precio o proveer una gran gama de opciones.

Tus clientes saben eso cuando deciden comprarte, pues saben que ofreces productos y servicios de calidad. Podrías no verlo así, pero ¿no te da un poco más de tranquilidad el saber que obtienes un producto de calidad por sobre otras 50 opciones de productos “regulares”?

Cada vez que tengas una conversación de ventas encuentra una manera de mostrar por qué eres tan bueno en lo que haces y cómo beneficia todo eso a tu (potencial) cliente. Sólo porque no seas una empresa grande no quiere decir que no puedes competir en ventas y demostrar la calidad de lo que ofreces a tus clientes.

Adelántate a tu competencia

Las pequeñas y medianas empresas tienen ventajas a la hora de solventar necesidades de sus clientes. Al ser una compañía más pequeña, tienes la oportunidad de personalizar la experiencia de tu cliente mucho más que una gran empresa.

Puedes resaltar beneficios como un menor tiempo de respuesta ante cualquier inconveniente o entrega más rápida. En resumen, puedes proveer un excelente servicio al cliente. Busca maneras de aprovechar el tamaño de tu empresa para beneficarte a ti y a tus clientes.

La marca tiene sus límites, y de acuerdo a este artículo de Harvard Business Review (en inglés) el valor de la relación con el cliente se ha duplicado en una década, y aunque los clientes valoran una marca fuerte “lo que constituye una marca fuerte depende más de la experiencia directa del cliente con una oferta en particular, y de la relación que tiene con la compañía que la produce”.

Superar a tu competencia en lo que se refiere, por ejemplo, al servicio al cliente, te dará grandes ventajas y traerá más ventas, sin importar qué tan grandes sean las empresas con las que compites. Una reputación de trabajar duro para complacer a los clientes nunca hizo daño a nadie.

Aprovecha las herramientas online

Hay muchas herramientas online disponibles hoy para pequeñas y medianas empresas, como Google Adwords, herramientas de encuestas online como SurveyMonkey, e incluso softwares CRM en la nube como Salesforce que sería una locura no utilizar todos estos recursos.

Con el aumento de herramientas online y aplicaciones SaaS en la nube tu empresa puede adquirir varias suscripciones que se adapten a lo que tu negocio necesita. Dado que todo esto está a tu disposición, realmente no hay excusas para decir que no puedes competir con grandes empresas.

Usar herramientas actualizadas y un sistema CRM te da la misma cantidad de recursos que durante mucho tiempo solo estuvieron disponibles para grandes compañías. El campo ha sido “nivelado”, por lo cual no debes temer a competir por ventas.

Ahora, el éxito en ventas no se obtiene por el tamaño de una compañía sino por estrategia. Juega con inteligencia, acepta todo aquello de tu compañía que inspire a otras personas, y sal a vender.

Are you and your company ready for the future? As technology is constantly evolving, so is the way that small and mid-sized businesses operate. Thus, to be successful, SMBs need to be constantly aware, staying on top of the latest technology trends. Here are a few technology trends that every SMB should implement.


Cloud Computing

Nowadays, small businesses are becoming more and more comfortable with putting information and data into the cloud. According to a Microsoft Infographic, 9.6 million U.S. SMBs are currently using cloud-based services, and 98% of them say that it’s is a critical factor in their success. Co-founder of the research firm SMB Group, Laurie McGabe, says, “There are a host of technologies available in 2016 that are giving small and SMBs the applications and devices they need to level the playing field against larger companies.” She also states cloud computing is one such technology. Forbes concludes that the growth in the use of cloud-based services will be due to the benefits they provide. As McGabe puts it, “Reduced upfront investments in hardware and software, quick access to application updates and new capabilities that help them serve customers better and contribute to market growth.” 


Going mobile

Nowadays who doesn’t use an iPhone, Android, or other smartphones to gain access to the Internet? Acces to the internet through a desktop computer is slowly becoming obsolete. As more and more people are accessing the Internet through their smartphones while on the go, SMBs  need to ensure their websites and applications are mobile-friendly. According to a new survey by B2B research company Clutch, about 50% of small businesses should have a mobile application this year, and most their online traffic will be through mobile access. Viktor Marhonic, the CEO of the app builder Shoutem, says, “Three years ago, a small business might see 10 percent of its total traffic coming from mobile, but right now it’s closer to 70 percent. Within the next couple of years, a shift to a mobile app or a mobile-friendly site will become obvious.”


Remote Working

In the past, it was hard for small businesses to accommodate remote workforces, but with the introduction of innovative technologies like Zoom and Slack, SMBs have been able to make the most of an offsite workforce while significantly increasing the amount of work that is done. A Virgin Media Business survey predicts that by 2022, 60% of office-based workers will work regularly from home. According to Xero.com, “There’s a financial gain behind working remotely: the U.S. alone could stand to save more than $700 billion if those who had jobs suited to remote work could do so. As asynchronous communication through email and chat services becomes ubiquitous, remote workers can batch their tasks and use the long uninterrupted times to get more work done.” In addition, not having to maintain an office space can offer significant savings to small business owners. A Stanford University study stated that remote workers also report a higher job satisfaction, log more hours, and log less sick days than their in-office counterparts. They study also noted that remote working can save a company $2000 per year per employee.

Have you ever found yourself wondering what it takes to be an effective salesperson? What behaviors make up effective salespeople? What do their rituals, routines, and habits look like?

We do not advocate the morals that the Wolf Of Wall Street presented us with but we know that Jordan Belfort (the real Wolf) knew how to sell. Famous for many things, Mr. Belfort made an impact on many peoples sales methods. The key principle will always exist, “Sell me this pen!”. But it takes more than just a few lines and fancy words to get people excited and engaged in your products. To answer these questions posed previously we turned to our own sales team for answers.

Based on observations and interviews with Commercient sales reps, we came up with a list of 10 of the most useful habits that make (our) salespeople so great at what they do.

  1. Effective salespeople are always prepared. An effective salesperson always prepares before making a phone call or sending an email. They thoroughly research their prospects and go into every customer meeting with a game-plan. The most successful and effective sales reps don’t wing it. They have a plan and a contingency plan. They anticipate questions and challenges so they can close the deal.
  2. Effective salespeople know their product. Being able to sell the product is only half the battle. The other half is actually understanding what the product does, how it does the thing it does, and why this potential customer needs the product. Salespeople who know their products can empathize with their prospects, therefore making them more effective.
  3. Effective salespeople put themselves in their customer’s shoes. They know that if they’re going to make a sale, they can’t focus on the payoff. In order to be successful, they ask themselves how can they help the prospect win? By making themselves an ally of the prospect, they create a win-win situation for everyone.
  4. Effective salespeople listen well. A good salesperson listens, really listens, to their prospects. They make an effort to fully understand their prospect by asking questions and listening to both their wants and needs so that they (the sales rep) can provide their prospects with exactly what they’re looking for.
  5. Effective salespeople believe in what they’re selling. It’s easy to be excited about—and sell—products we genuinely believe in. The most effective salespeople use or at least have valid experience with the products they are selling—like Commercient SYNC for example. All of our sales reps can give you the ins-and-outs of our product without hesitation because they have experience using the product and understand the “how it works” behind syncing the data between your ERP and CRM system.
  6. Effective salespeople are purpose driven. Money can be excellent motivation but purpose is much more powerful. The best sales reps understand that the product they’re selling has the potential to positively impact people, and this knowledge gives them the sense of purpose they need to get the job done and make the sale.
  7. Effective salespeople have mastered the art of the follow-up. You’d be surprised to find out how many salespeople fail to effectively follow-up with a lead after the initial proposal.  Effective salespeople make their prospective clients a priority and take the time to follow-up and provide any further assistance they may need when making their decision to buy.
  8. Effective salespeople provide potential clients with value. Speaking of follow-ups, effective salespeople often go beyond your average “just checking in” automated email response. They make an effort to teach their prospects something new every time they interact, providing a personalized and valuable experience that could be the icing on the cake they need to close the deal.
  9. Effective salespeople personalize their message to their prospects. Sticking with providing value, instead of following the “one size fits all” mentality, highly effective salespeople choose to personalize their pitch for each customer. They’re committed to learning as much as they can about the potential customer so they can pinpoint the needs of the prospect and effectively explain how the product or service they are selling can help them.
  10. Effective salespeople have a measurable and repeatable sales generation process. Great processes are broken down into measurable actions. Making each step of their process measurable enables a sales rep to target their weak spots so they know where to improve. Ideally, this helps a sales rep strive to reach a more discernable goal than “sell better.”

At Commercient, our sales reps believe it all comes down to qualifying early and often. They also stated that out of the above 10 habits, providing value to the customer is the most important to them. As the face of the organization, it’s the sales rep’s job to make a good impression and present the potential client with a message that has their best interest at heart.

It’s a delicate balance. You want to provide customers with an experience and solution they can appreciate while simultaneously growing your business. But effective salespeople know what it takes to achieve this. Want to see an effective sales rep in action? Give one of ours a call today!

If there’s anything we know about small businesses, it’s that they are always focused on growth. And the good news for 2016 is that small business growth is predicted to thrive throughout the new year.
