How It Works
The CRM Field Marketing System consists of three Web-based modules:
CRM Field Marketing Assessment (FM-A) assesses baseline knowledge of the background principles and skill required to plan, develop, and execute effective, sales-oriented business-to-business marketing programs, and sets a benchmark for the user’s current level of knowledge and familiarity with principles required for success utilizing on-demand CRM.
FM-A provides a snapshot view of each users’ initial, “Day One” knowledge and skill level, and is a useful benchmark for measuring improvement developed by completing the CRM-FM skill-building (FM-B) and certification (FM-C) modules (see below);
CRM Field Marketing Skill-Builder (FM-B) is a comprehensive, 15-part Web-based training program covering the wide range of practical, proven marketing areas for business-to-business lead generation and lead development, utilizing on-demand CRM. The FM-B module builds practical skills for marketing, sales, and product management professionals at all experience levels in the application of on-demand CRM to each of these critical marketing areas in your company:
• Integrating business-to-business marketing programs with on-demand CRM;
• Clear presentation and copy skills to develop response-generating marketing deliverables in on-demand CRM campaigns;
• Producing expedient field marketing deliverables for effective sales support;
• Planning, developing, and executing targeted B2B direct mail programs using on-demand CRM
