CRM website integration

As the number of leads generated by your website grow beyond a certain point, it becomes difficult to manage and keep track of each lead using a simple database or spreadsheet. Plugging in a CRM solution to your website is bound to make this job easier, so that you can concentrate on selling instead of the process of selling.

Sales expert Nancy Nardin said in an interview with Lucep that “If you think CRM is enough, think again.” But let’s not jump the gun. First, let’s help you figure out how to integrate your CRM with your website, and then we’ll take you a step ahead from there.

Instead of giving you a big page of general outlines on integrating a CRM with your website, I went ahead and did some research on all the major CRM tools and found their guides on how to integrate that particular CRM with your website.

1. Freshsales

A hugely popular customer support and helpdesk solution Freshdesk has come up with Its very own CRM called Freshsales with the help of which you can now use AI-based lead scoring, built-in phone, email, activity capture and more, to find the best leads and have better sales pipelines.

7. Sugar CRM

Sugar CRM is a commercial open source application whose primary deliverable is to build and maintain relationships with the customers. It comes with a highly intuitive user interface which helps make sense of these different elements of your business. There’s some good news for eCommerce websites as well. If you integrate Clarity Connect with Sugar CRM, you can even perform additional activities such as order and billing management, shipping and fulfilment and financial planning as well.

The integration benefits also include monitoring and managing leads, customer and accounts logins and real time insights into your inventories. The web-to-lead form of Sugar CRM allows you to capture your website visitors from your website or other online locations to become leads in your CRM.

Almost all of these CRMs offer free trials. Sign up, play around with it, and find out which one is right for your organizational needs.

All these CRMs will allow you to add leads manually into their systems. To make this process automated, what you need to do is integrate your CRM with a marketing automation tool or sales enablement software. I recommend you do that right after you get your CRM.
