Posted by BigContacts on Tue, February 9, 2016 @ 00:00 PM


 

If your business is not in software development, you may have never heard of scrum, or perhaps you are familiar solely with the rugby term. Scrum is a technique used to create complicated software in manageable chunks (called Sprints) utilizing empirical process control to deliver completely functional code.

Businesses implement scrum when traditional development is too slow, complicated, and employees are not connected enough with their work to be efficient programmers. No matter your industry, the lessons multiple businesses learned from implementing scrum (according to Ken Schwaber) for their software teams provides great tips to free up more time in your day through driving employee engagement.

Tips & Tools For Converting More Prospects To Customers

Posted by BigContacts on Fri, January 8, 2016 @ 11:30 AM

Let's start at the beginning. Let's identify what a real prospect is. When you open a landing page, you will get tire kickers just like any sales establishment online or brick and mortar. If someone walks into your store, say hooray, but that isn't necessarily a prospect. It could be just a person who is curious or even, sometimes, who likes to create needs in themselves.

A true prospect is a person who has a genuine interest in what you are selling. It is a person whose final passage down the sales funnel will depend on product-related decisions. Prospects will get much farther down into the sales funnel than tire kickers. They will make action choices that move close to the closing choice point.
