Sales & Marketing

Customer Management – Create and manage email and telephone marketing campaigns. Target your contacts based on their activity, such as “customers who only purchased once in the last 12 months.” Set up and leverage Relationships such as Referral Partners.

  • Tags – Organize and automate your sales and marketing with this powerful tool. Tags can be set up any way you wish, and can be used wherever you choose. For example, you can set up email and telephone marketing campaigns that reach anyone associated with the CUSTOMER tag. If you then add a new contact and apply the CUSTOMER tag, the new contact will be automatically included in the email and telephone marketing campaigns! Use tags with Contacts, Products, Product Bundles, Product Subscriptions…anywhere you like! Use Tags for sales and marketing, or after the fact to understand customer acquisition and other costs.
  • Autotagging – Automatically tag contacts based on their actions. For example, you might want to understand how your customers respond to volume pricing. You could create a “Buy 2, get 1 free” bundle and set it up to apply the VOLUME tag to all purchasers. You can then instantly create email and telephone marketing campaigns that reach anyone associated with the VOLUME tag! Use Autotagging with Products, Product Bundles, Product Subscriptions and other activities.

The ONETouch Tool

ONETouch Tool

The ONETouch Tool allows you to publish sales and marketing content to your web site, all of your social media and print with a single click. Better yet, it synchronizes these so that, for example, if you list a new product for sale on your web site, your social media updates point right to the new listing so your customers can immediately purchase it. The results are then displayed on the Dashboard.

The ONETouch Dashboard-the Heart of your Business


The lifeblood of any business is data. What’s your Customer Acquisition Cost? What’s your Return On Investment? What marketing efficiently and effectively sells your product; what marketing costs you more than you make?

The ONETouch Dashboard is designed to be the beating heart of your business. EVERYTHING published with the ONETouch Tool is tracked on the Dashboard in the only metric that really matters in business: Dollars in Your Pocket.

Use the Default settings to see at-a-glance how your business is doing against the last 30 days, or use the Advanced Settings to tailor the Dashboard to your needs. (For example, you can set the Dashboard to show the last 4 Fridays, if your sales vary greatly by day of the week.) Need more? Click on any dial to drill down for more detail; all the way to individual orders!


Telling Shoppers from Shoplifters

So you get one of those emails that promises to Add 10,000 Followers to your Twitter Account!


Adding 10,000 customers to your marketing would be A Good Thing.

Adding 10,000 people who will soak up your time and energy and money and never buy anything would be A Bad Thing.

A century ago, when big newspapers were brand new and the first mass media, a publisher happened to meet the doyen of that city’s upscale department store. “Madam,” the publisher said, “You will have to advertise in my newspaper now. I now have one million subscribers.”

“Sir,” she replied, “Your subscribers are our shoplifters.”

So how do you tell the shoppers from the shoplifters?

Here’s where to start: Who actually uses each medium? How do the use it? Where? When?

Now how do these answers match up with the customers you are trying to reach?

Who is Feola?

And why should you listen to what I have to say about using social and other new media to promote your business? Or, as I’m sure many of you are thinking, Isn’t Feola that Giant Nerd I Met Somewhere Or Other? Can He Even Spell?!?

Well, to be honest, no. I type like I live: fast, with lots of mistakes. Some of those mistakes include changing careers a time or two. So, before I became a Giant Nerd, I did a few other things that are relevant to this discussion:

  • I was a journalist, spending years as a foreign correspondent
  • I wrote a story that got me banned from the Pacific Rim (OK, that’s not relevant, but it is funny)
  • I taught new media at the Columbia Graduate School of Journalism
  • I founded the Media Center at the American Press Institute
  • I was named one of the 50 most important people in New Media

So here’s the thing about new media: Every 10 minutes someone invents something new, and everyone runs around yelling “This changes everything!”

I’m here to tell you one simple thing: No it doesn’t.

At the end of the day, in every medium, for every reader, for every customer, you must answer one simple question:

Why should I care?
