  47. 47. Contacts Sales and Marketing: Tools and Terminology Below you’ll find the tools and terminology used in the application and online training. For more information visit Salesforce Community, the Salesforce.com Online User Community. You can search the site, browse around, and see what the community is interested in. Accounts Opportunities Accounts are your organization's customers, competitors, and partners. Each account stores information such as name, address, and phone numbers. For each account, you can store related information such as opportunities, activities, cases, partners, contracts, and notes. Contacts are all of the individuals associated with your business accounts that you need to track in Salesforce. You can store various information for a contact, such as phone numbers, addresses, titles, and roles in a deal. Opportunities are the sales and pending deals that you want to track. By adding opportunities, you are also building your “pipeline,” which will contribute to your forecast. You can also link opportunities to campaigns to help measure the ROI of your marketing programs. A lead is a prospect or potential opportunity - a person you met at a conference who expressed interest, or someone who filled out a form on your company’s website. A campaign is an outbound marketing project that you want to plan, manage, and track within Salesforce. It can be a direct mail program, seminar, print advertisement, email, or other type of marketing initiative. Leads Campaigns Google AdWords™ is an online advertising service used to create advertisements that display on major search engines, including Google. Many Salesforce customers advertise online with Google AdWords as a mechanism to generate leads.Google AdWords With Web-to-Lead, you can gather information from your company’s website and automatically generate leads. Web- to-Lead form can be used for contact me requests, registration pages, or campaign landing pages. Products are the individual items that you sell on your opportunities. You can create a product and associate it with a price in a price book. Each product can exist in many different price books with many different prices. A product that is listed in a price book with an associated price is called a price book entry. Products Web-to-Lead Form
  48. 48. Sales and Marketing: Tools and Terminology A forecast is your best estimate of how much revenue you can generate in a quarter. This amount is divided between Commit Amount - the amount you can confidently close - and Best Case Amount - the total amount of revenue you might possibly generate. A manager’s forecast should include the amount of revenue the entire team can generate together. Forecasts A contract is a written agreement between two or more parties. Many companies use contracts to define the terms for doing business with other companies. Track the contract through your organization’s approval process and use workflow alerts to notify yourself when to initiate contract renewals.Contracts Group calendaring will helps you better collaborate as a team, and arrange meetings with prospects and customers. Task Activities Tasks are to-do items that need to be followed up on. They can be associated with accounts, contacts, leads, or other custom objects. You can follow up on the task yourself, or assign it to another user. Maintain a historical record of all activities related to an account, contact, or opportunity. Your activity history includes emails, call notes, and calendar events, so everyone is on the same page. Calendar Events Reports are lists, summaries, and analyses of your data, which you can display or print. To help you monitor your organization, Salesforce offers a wide range of standard reports, accessible in the Reports tab. You can also create new custom reports to access exactly the information you need. You can subtotal and limit your data to help you analyze trends and get a concise picture of what is happening in your organization. Reports Dashboards give you a real-time snapshot of corporate metrics and key performance indicators. A dashboard is a group of different charts (or components) that graphically display your custom report data. You can select up to 20 different custom reports to display data graphically as charts in each dashboard.Dashboards A document library is a place to store files without attaching them to accounts, contacts, opportunities, or other records. Each document in the document library resides in a folder. The folder’s attributes determine the accessibility of the folder and the documents within it.Documents Below you’ll find the tools and terminology used in the application and online training. For more information visit Salesforce Community, the Salesforce.com Online User Community. You can search the site, browse around, and see what the community is interested in.
  49. 49. Make searching data and interacting with the results of your searches simple, smooth, and highly effective. Inline paging and sorting features simplify the task of working with large sets of search results. Powerful filtering and scoping functions narrow searches and results. Customization options enable users to design search results layouts that are tailored for the way they work. Sales and Marketing: Tools and Terminology With computer-telephony integration (CTI) capabilities, you can directly integrate your telephone network into Salesforce and access it entirely through the familiar, browser-based Salesforce interface. With the combined power of CTI and the new Salesforce Console, salesforce.com delivers unlimited productivity to your call centers. Outlook users enjoy high levels of productivity with Apex Connect Outlook—formerly called Outlook Edition—which makes it easy to synchronize important customer data between two commonly used applications. With Connect Outlook 3.0 in Spring ’07, productivity for Outlook users gets another boost with several enhancements. Users can add emails with attachments, create contacts and leads directly in Outlook, and create relationships between calendar events and associated objects such as accounts and opportunities. CTI Integration Connect Outlook You can set up a Web-to-Lead form to capture contact me requests from your company’s website. With a lead de- dupe solution you can automatically route those requests to the person who owns the account. Web-to-Lead Form With Salesforce you can create email templates for common emails such as web-to-lead responses, sales prospecting, announcements, and internal workflow. You can even personalize parts of the email with information from the contact or account record. Email Templates Plan and execute email campaigns targeted at prospects and customers. Enterprise Edition customers can send 500 emails per mass mailing, while Unlimited Edition customers can send 1,000 emails per mass mailing. Salesforce can also integrate with third-party marketing solutions and offers out-of-the-box integration with several top email marketing vendors.
