We all know just how important follow-ups are for our businesses. Your contact list grows weekly—which is awesome, by the way—and you want to give each contact special attention. You’d like to keep up with their purchasing preferences and give them a heads up about new items you know they’d like or sales you know they’ll want to snag. How on earth are you going to keep up with all that and maintain a follow-up schedule that puts you in touch with each contact on a regular basis?
It may not be quite as hard as you think.
myBeeHyve allows you to keep all your contacts in one place and access them anytime, anywhere. Head back to this post for more details on how myBeeHyve simplifies contact input.
Let’s look more closely at how this cloud based program helps you schedule follow-ups and keep up with them from your desktop or mobile phone.
Contact fields allow quick search options.
You’re planning a trip with your family to the neighboring state and would love to set up some business parties while you’re there. You’d like to send a quick email to your contacts in that area to see who’d be interested. No problem!
Simply search your fields for contacts who live in that area. A quick tap gives you a list. From there you can type out a message with all the details and then email it to each of them. They’ll receive individual emails from your email address. That’s working smarter, not harder at its best!
Custom fields mean you can set your own searches.
If our automatic contact fields leave you wanting more, create your own! Custom fields allow your ingenuity an outlet and mean you can tailor this program to your company’s exact needs.
Users share with us great tips for fields they’ve created. Some of these include products purchased, reorder dates, product wish lists, profession, and last order date. The sky’s the limit with categories you can add and how you can use them. For instance, with the “products purchased” category you could share sale details or upgrades or discontinuations with customers you know will be interested. And you can do that with a few simple taps!
Head over to our Facebook user group where you can share how you customize your contacts’ information.
Specific details help you personalize your follow-ups.
We mentioned in the last post how you could include a field for the date they place their first order with you. We promised you details on how you can use that info in a very special follow-up, so here it is!
On December 1, 2016, Peggy Smith placed her first order with you. Peggy’s been a loyal customer for you, placing an order every few months at least. With a quick search for customers who placed their first orders on December 1, you can select Peggy to receive a special email on that day. Thank her for her support of your business and maybe offer her a discount on her next order.
Now Peggy knows you care about her and pay attention to the “little things.” So, next time she goes to pick something up from the store and remembers you sell a similar product, perhaps she sets it back on the shelf and gives you a call instead. Maybe she shares your thoughtfulness with her bridge club, and they ask for your contact info. The domino effects for your business from one quick and simple (but personal) follow-up contact could fan out much further than you ever imagined.
Along the same lines, don’t forget to set up follow-ups for contacts on their birthday. Wish them a special day and perhaps offer a little gift. Your contacts will love the attention!
