It is another big day here at Nimble!
This morning we announced further additions to our Nimble Smart Contacts Everywhere strategy – The Nimble Smart Contacts Widgets for HootSuite, Chrome, Safari and Firefox lets you add, view and engage contacts to nurture relationships in every App in your browser.
Instant Relationship Intelligence, Everywhere You Work
“Let’s face it, most people engage business prospects in multiple tabs in their browser including their email inbox, Google search, social platforms like LinkedIn and Twitter and customer facing business apps like CRM, and they are overwhelmed by contacts and communications. Nimble brings relationship intelligence to their workflow and our customers are turning Nimble into a verb as they use our Smart Contacts widget to prepare for more authentic, relevant engagement,” said Nimble CEO Jon Ferrara. “When it comes to understanding who somebody is, the best-thing to do is to “Nimble” them, and then let Nimble’s smart profiling technology provide rich, contact insights and communications summary.”
“Nimble Insights” On Any Contact, Instantly From Any App in Your Browser
When you think about Smart Contact profiles, consider this example of how it can work for you. Let’s say you keep tabs on Who’s Viewed Your Profile in LinkedIn. You know that the CIO you want to meet just looked at your profile, but you don’t know why. You have no context. There are no clues to give you the insight you need to start a meaningful conversation. The Nimble Smart Contacts Widget changes all that.
Simply right-clicking on the person’s name lets Nimble instantly go to work for you by creating a record and sourcing the web and social networks for real-time information about that individual. Nimble builds out their profile with their interests, the social networks they frequent, and the content they share or the people they talk about. Think of it as your personalized treasure map giving you some serious clues about the right way to engage.
Know Thy Audience
Today’s savvy social sellers understand the value of doing their homework before attempting to engage a prospect or customer. In the mind of the buyer, a sales person’s ability to understand their business, the marketplace, trends in their industry and their competitors, homework isn’t an option – it is expected!
Although the work is necessary and worth it, sales people spend almost 20 percent of their time researching accounts and prospects by Googling them, logging email and social interactions with much of this time wasted. Nimble immediately trims the amount of time spent profiling contacts and logging interactions with its Smart Summary view and automatic email and social syncing, now inside the Nimble Contacts Widget.
The Nimble Contacts Widget provides the ability to view social streams and signals related to that contact. Nimble pulls and provides complete communications history of emails, notes, and events, in addition to social messages. The Nimble Contacts Widget also enables users to take action by adding a task, associating a new deal, rating the contact as important or starting engagement follow-ups directly within the app.
But Don’t Just Listen to Us
Neal Schaffer, a Top 5 Social Sales Influencer and Social Media Author says that, “The Nimble Smart Contacts App saves me time engaging inside and outside of social media. I used to switch between my email, social and a traditional CRM to try to piece together who someone is, how we’re connected and what our history is. Now, Nimble is my smart relationship second brain accessible to me everywhere I engage. I introduce Nimble in my social media presentations because it provides focused Big Data business intelligence on people to get help build key relationships in this complex online world of ours.”
