Salesforce is arguably the most powerful CRM on the market, and until recently has been one of the most expensive, too. But the launch of Salesforce Essentials has made it possible for small businesses with small budgets to capitalize on the best features of Salesforce for less than most mediocre CRM options.
Introducing Salesforce Essentials
The latest addition to the Salesforce family, Salesforce Essentials was designed for small businesses with big needs. Costing just a small fraction of their full-scale enterprise CRM, the Essentials package is ideal for small companies, solopreneurs, and even large corporations. The best part? It costs about a third of Salesforce CRM – starting at just $25 per user per month.
What Salesforce Essentials Can Do
Surprisingly, the scaled-down Essentials package didn’t lose much functionality compared to the full-service, Professional version.
It’s a scalable solution for growing your business, offering easy out-of-the-box setup and built-in tools. You can pull data from email, calendars, spreadsheets, and other places to sync your customer database. It integrates with popular platforms like MailChimp, Slack, and Dropbox. And it’s designed to help you sell better and improve your customer service.
The only things you’re missing compared to the traditional version of Salesforce are the ability to forecast, automate, and build quotes. And, of course, the $300/month price tag with the most powerful version.
Why Salesforce Essentials?
At first glance, it sounds like just about every other CRM out there, but keep in mind this is Salesforce. They’re the CRM juggernauts for a reason, and that’s because they’ve proven to thousands of customers how they can help drive business growth.
Even some of the more troublesome CRM out there cost way more than Essentials. This is by far their most cost-effective option to date, and they offer a Sales version and a Service version to tailor fit your needs.
You can give it a try for yourself for free for 14 full days. They’re also tacking on three free months of GSuite and lots of free training to help you get up and running as soon as you begin.
You can learn more about Salesforce Essentials via their website and start your free trial.
It might just be the last CRM you’ll ever need to invest in.
