Today, I write my first blog post for Nimble as I start my new position as Nimble’s head of marketing and sales. I’m excited by the prospects of leading a truly social business, smack dab in the middle of the social revolution. The Nimble team, some of the best and brightest in Silicon Beach (Santa Monica, CA for the rest of the world), was a huge factor in my jumping on board. As is our vision. As Jim Collins says in Built to Last, Good to Great, identify the Big Hairy Audacious Goal and attack it. That goal is bringing nimble relationship management — especially through social channels — to every small-to-medium sized business on the planet. Which fundamentally changes the way business is done.
That’s the reason for excitement– Nimble is still so early on in its journey, with plenty of ground to cover. And we’re growing! My hire signals expansion, with more to come.
Jon Ferrara, our CEO, has just co-authored Social CRM for Dummies (John Wiley & Sons, Inc.) with Kyle Lacy and Stephanie Diamond. In these two short videos at the book launch, he talks about the next phase in the evolution of CRM — the change to social, customer-focused companies fully open and prepared to engage with customers.
Jon describes a universal dashboard that brings together all the social media contacts into CRM so that a company can get a big picture of all the conversations that take place. Read more ›

I’m very proud today to announce that Nimble has been named one of the winners of Paul Greenberg’s annual CRM Watchlist.
Paul Greenberg is the godfather of Customer Relationship Management and one of the foremost thought leaders in social CRM, as well. He followed his bliss to a role that merges his reporting skills and business acumen — and now stands as an author, teacher, and customer strategist sui generis.
There is literally no person I know who doesn’t know Paul’s work, and no person I know who doesn’t speak highly of him. He lives what he teaches. He says what he means. He also has a heart of gold (as feral cats in need near his home will attest).
The CRM Watchlist is an impact award that Paul has given out annually for the past five years to companies with a CRM or social customer-centric focus — companies he thinks will have the most impact over the year. It’s a rigorous and lengthy process to apply, an exercise in self-examination that mandates team immersion and ends up influencing the product roadmap far beyond the judging date.
This year, for the third year in a row, Nimble made the list of winners, a diverse group of market leaders (Salesforce.com, Microsoft, SAP, and Oracle), marketing platforms (Marketo and HubSpot), and social communities (Jive and Lithium). This year there were 153 entrants — that’s an unimaginable amount of research and analysis to contemplate. Read more ›
