I’ve helped hundreds of business owners, so it's important for me to keep in touch with them on a regular basis with industry updates and quick marketing tips. To do this, I send a professional looking email through Constant Contact that goes out to all of my contacts. I can even see who has opened my email, if the email bounced, or if they clicked on any links to go to my website or Facebook page. I also use Constant Contact to manage a birthday club for my clients, manage my business events, and send a quarterly performance review to obtain unbiased feedback from my clients. Pricing starts at just $45/month and is an absolutely necessity if you're lookingg to strengthen a relationship with your existing clients, as well as generate more referrals.

VCita: Making that first step to ask for more information through a company website is always the hardest, and most people don't submit their information through that contact form. For that reason, I use Vcita for new clients to look at my calendar and schedule an appointment with me on their time. My favorite part, that it's like a popup on steroids for your website! It immediately gets the visitors attention during the time that matters most - during the first minute they come to your site. Free to use the popup and upgrades available. See how this helped one of my clients capture 15 new leads in 2 weeks.
