CRM Idol brings Salestrakr CRM visibility and mentorship we can find nowhere else.
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) July 16, 2012
Salestrakr has officially been named a contestant in CRM Idol 2012, after meeting the contest's criteria and passing reference checks. The team at Salestrakr was excited to be notified that Salestrakr CRM was again chosen to complete against some of the best CRM products on the market.
“We’re very excited to again be chosen by the judges at CRM Idol to participate and have a chance to tell and show our story”, said Steve Youngblood, CEO and Co-Founder of Salestrakr, LLC. “This is the best venue possible to showcase our product and reach a global audience. No doubt, we want to win. We also though relish the opportunity to become known by Idol's judges who are also the CRM industry's visionaries. Their positive mentoring and honest feedback can be had nowhere else”.
Salestrakr participated in the 2011 CRM Idol competition and has steered its recent development efforts from insight it gained from that competition's mentors, judges and participants. This year’s competition will also present opportunities for Salestrakr to engage with the same constituencies.
“This year we will have another opportunity to present our latest features and efforts to a distinguished panel and hear about what they like and what they would like improved. This is an exciting and positive place to hear about what the market will want in the future and what our peers think we should do" says Youngblood. “Honestly, you can't buy this type of publicity and industry participation. Further, the benefits that come from winning are even more extraordinary.”
CRM Idol is the brainchild of Paul Greenburg, the President of The 56 Group, a consulting firm, focused on CRM and Social CRM strategic services. He is also a founding partner of BPT Partners, a training and consulting venture composed of a number of CRM luminaries. After spending over a decade in the CRM market, Greenberg saw a large market, billions of dollars in size, some large players and thousands of small companies who are, as Greenberg says, CRM-ish. Greenberg felt these small yet important vendors weren't receiving the visibility necessary to reach such a large market adequately. Greenberg and fellow CRM visionaries came up with the idea of giving these small emerging companies mentorship and prizes. Most of all though, Greenberg felt they could bring these best and brightest some needed visibility.
CRM Idol 2012 judges also include CRM industry experts Esteban Kolsky, Jesus Hoyos, Denis Pombriant, and Brent Leary. Greenberg has also assembled extended vendor, media and influencer panels who will not only help judge the competition but will also mentor and drive the contestants to achieve their maximum potential at CRM Idol and in the marketplace.
