The Nimble Prospector Web-Browser Extension
Every business needs a Customer Relationship Management (CRM) system, and my system of choice is Nimble CRM.
I like Nimble CRM because it’s a Social CRM for Small Businesses. It’s built for Small and Medium (SMB)-sized businesses who do a lot of prospecting online, using email and social media.
The new Nimble Prospect 2.0 web-browser extension has been a revelation in managing those online relationships.
It makes it easy to either add a new contact or update an existing contact, all without leaving the website you’re currently browsing.
For instance, you visit the website of a prospective client. Nimble Prospector immediately builds a live company insight that can tell you more about the business.
Another example would be visiting a Twitter or LinkedIn profile. The web-browser extension immediately gathers information about that contact and allows you to quickly see activity such as:-
- The last time you contacted the individual via email or Twitter
- A smart summary of who the person is and where they are influential
- Any ongoing deals you’re currently working on with the contact
- Upcoming meetings you have with the individual
… and more besides.
You can also edit any of the contact details of the person from within the web-browser. There’s no need to fire open a new CRM window.
From within the web-browser extension, you can also:-
- Log Notes to the contact
- Add tasks
- Attach Files
- Set Stay in Touch reminders
- Tag contacts for quick list building
The Nimble Prospector tool also allows you to discover verified business details, including email address, telephone numbers and addresses. Useful if you’re in the discovery stage of prospecting.
All of the above features work for individuals, or you can share contact information across a team — allowing you to see any interactions your colleague had with contacts.
I’ve been a big fan of Nimble CRM for some time, but the new extension makes it easier than ever to dig the goldmine that is the data in your CRM.
