Believe it or not, this year is nearing its end and a whole new decade is rapidly approaching.

With 2020 on the horizon, business leaders have more access than ever to the innovative tools and training available to them; and therefore, less excuses not to take them on board. Two major additions to your repertoire should be a Customer Relationship Management (CRM) system, and email marketing skills.

We can all agree that one of the most important aspects of running a business is the maintenance and management of your current and potential customers. If you haven’t yet used a CRM, you’re selling yourself short (literally!). With a focus on customer retention, CRMs can dramatically drive sales and growth—if you know how to use them. 

Another important element that affects a business’ relationship with its customers is email marketing. Email messages (automated or not) are one of the most direct ways you can interact with your customer base. They also offer many opportunities for information sharing and sales. Without utilizing the advantages of email marketing, you may just be behind on your game.

If you’re a beginner (or a complete stranger) to either of these dynamic concepts, you’re in luck: there are many upcoming learning opportunities in and around Vancouver geared just for you—each offering lessons on how to use these powerful tools to your advantage right away. And who knows? Your digital marketing toolbox may just be spilling over by the end!
