When missing data quality in you CRM becomes a huge problem – why modern marketing needs an API

One or the other wonders why an interface is necessary for marketing measures.

The answer is so simple and easy to answer.

When was the last time you looked at the data quality of your contacts in your CRM?

Assuming that many mid-sized companies have already purchased a CRM and are actively working with marketing automation software, it is becoming increasingly important that contacts from many different sources are bundled, checked and enriched in order to maintain high quality within the CRM.

But not only in case of marketing automation software, also with the collection of prospective customers on fairs, exhibitions and Networking Events it comes frequently to erroneous data, which affects directly the quality in the CRM.

The solution: hileadzz, the intelligent interface for your marketing and sales

A good solution convinces with an intuitive interface!

What do successful software solutions have in common?

They are easy to operate and function reliably on any device. For this reason, special attention has been paid to the surface of hileadzz so that it can be operated quickly and easily on any terminal device.

With just a few clicks, information can be captured, content sent and contacts transferred to CRM.

What is actually “under the hood” of hileadzz?

When it comes to the digital recording of leads, hileadzz provides the user with several options:

For use at networking events and trade fairs, an interested party can be easily registered via business card scan or by digitally entering the e-mail. This data are automatically loaded into the digital contact form, so that the interested person can be further qualified.

Once the contacts have been recorded, they are collected in specific projects and, depending on the settings, synchronized with your CRM either automatically or with a click.

Your advantage:

    • Prequalification of leads through intelligent follow-up
    • Higher data quality in CRM

Another area in which hileadzz is used, is online marketing.

In addition, hileadzz has its own web forms which are integrated into your registration and web pages in order to store the collected leads in the system, to qualify them and then synchronize with the CRM.

The digital Businesskit – What is behind hileadzz’s intelligent follow-up?

The intelligent follow-up has its origin in the B2C industry, where it is already used at major running events such as the Berlin Marathon or the Karlsruhe Trade Fair Centre. With the help of interactive content, we create a new participant experience and improve communication between sponsors and participants. For example, participants receive exclusive discounts and interactive content from sponsors directly on their end devices, which they can redeem either online or directly on site.

The advantage:

  • Activate interactive content Participants
  • Improved participant experience

How can B2B companies benefit from this technology?

In the B2B sector, too, business is exclusively between people. That is why it is important not to send impersonal mass mails to potential customers and existing customers after the trade fair. With mailings of this kind, real added value is rarely created and customers often wait far too long until they receive their desired information.

As a result, customers rarely remember their company when sales contacts them.

A better solution is the digital Businesskit, which is a large part of hileadzz.

By filling your follow-up with interactive content in advance with the digital Businesskit, your prospects receive a personalized follow-up with only relevant content.

Often asked: How do you make sure that the customer only receives relevant content?

There are two possibilities here:

  1. Create a digital Businesskit for each of your trade fair themes: Employees can choose between topic-specific Businesskits and send them out
  2. Categorize your content using the tagging function: Employees can give prospects various tags to unlock certain content in the digital Businesskit.

Your prospective customers receive precise contents still at the same time at the exhibition booth.

Intelligentes Lead Scoring – Die automatisierte Qualifizierung Deiner Interessenten

Some people will already know this function from their CRM. But the lead scoring with hileadzz goes one step further.

Our goal: To simplify marketing’s decisions as to whether a lead is ready for initial contact with sales or whether it needs further content on its customer journey.

How does hileadzz lead-scoring work?

It is explained simply in the following steps:

  1. In advance, a threshold value to be reached is determined, which is decisive for the respective lead phases.
  2. You will then score points depending on the importance of your content and projects for sales success.
  3. As soon as a customer has a special interest in your content and visits the content or your website, its lead value increases and follow-up measures are automatically triggered (e.g. sending a Businesskit).
  4. When the customer reaches the threshold value, the sales department receives an automatic signal that the customer is ready for the first contact.

For example, a lead receives only 20 points when you click on a blog post. However, by visiting your price and product page 50 points each, which would immediately qualify him for distribution if the threshold value is 100.
