Your Customers

Customer retention is a huge contributor to your company’s profitability. It’s not an area to be taken for granted, and your ERP can help you build up the knowledge you need to interact with customers more effectively. To get the full picture, you need to understand your customers on two levels:

  1. Overview: Looking at your customer’s overall habits can be an excellent way to identify trends and patterns. These can inform what products you choose to prioritize or offer discounts for. It can also help you determine which products are less viable and may need to be phased out. Optimizing your sales strategy based on customer demand is absolutely key to bringing in more revenue.
  2. Specific Details: Dig into some of the finer details with your customers’ transaction information. With this, you can get the skinny on every important touch point with your customers, from start to finish. The better you understand your customers, the more you can cater towards their needs.

Your Sales Channels

In order to revitalize your sales strategy, you need to be familiar with all the ways you’re reaching your customers. That’s where your sales channels come in.

  1. Ecommerce Channels: Efficiency in selling means meeting your customers where they’re at — and they’re mostly online. The more easily you can be accessed, the more customers will be willing to buy from you.
  2. Direct Channels: Sales that flow directly from your main office often cost you the least, so it’s important to prioritize this type of channel.
  3. Reseller Channels: These are cost-effective in that your allies will give you connections. This means less money spent on personal marketing efforts.
