The New Ace of Sales is Coming!

the-new-ace-of-sales-is-coming

I discovered Ace of Sales back in February of 2009 after reading a few Gitomer books to help me with a career transition. I was Immediately hooked and found Ace of Sales to be an invaluable tool. The whole premise of a simple CRM built by sales people for sales people reminded me of the old Nissan Xterra campaign, “Everything You Need, and Nothing You Don’t”.

It’s been quite some time since a major update to this program, but the timing couldn’t be better. I need a faster, better Ace of Sales that I can use on the fly. I need Ace of Sales to keep up with me and adapt to my needs. Ten times faster sounds pretty good to me Andy Horner, but I’ll settle for five. Just give me a faster, better Ace of Sales (mobile version is a big plus) that could WOW me and my customers.

This whole upgrade has me excited! My company Foxxr just opened a new office with more support that allows me to put back on my “Sales Hat” both for Foxxr and as an affiliate for Ace of Sales. I hope to see some type of Gmail Contacts integration and most definitely a WordPress plugin in the near future. Watch for my video reviews here on the Ace of Sales Forum next Monday the 22nd.

Group Management Using Gmail and Ace of Sales

Your contact database is one of the most valuable resources in your business and managing your contacts should be part of your daily routine.

In the past, I have struggled using Ace of Sales to manage my groups. I found myself over analyzing my group development and going back and forth between Ace of Sales and Gmail. Ultimately, I decided to narrow my groups and manage them entirely in Gmail, then import once per week into Ace of Sales.

Connect, Add, Populate

Gmail has an excellent user interface, and valuable add-on tools like Rapportive (for connecting) and Google+ integration into your contacts records. These tools are perfect for connecting with contacts and populating contact data automatically. Additionally, Gmail can be setup to automatically add any contact that you email to your contacts list and group them under “Other Contacts” if they don’t already exist in your contact database.

  • Connect – get Rapportive. This tool will automatically display how you are connected socially for every email sender or recipient in Gmail.
  • Add - Take 10 minutes or so each day to review your “Other Contacts” group new additions, add them to the your relevant group(s) and Google+ circle(s).
  • Populate – It is so damn easy. Once you assign your contacts to a Google+ Circle, they will be notified that you placed them in a circle. If they decide to reciprocate, their Google+ data will populate into their contact record.

You are the essence of your reactions and your responses

I tweeted: “Resilience doesn’t start with experience – it STARTS with attitude – your attitude.” It got more than 100 “re-tweets.” Evidently people understood what I was saying and chose to tell others. But since Twitter only allows 140 characters, I wanted to elaborate on the word resilience because it has a much deeper meaning […]
