Orlando, Fla. (PRWEB) June 04, 2014
Social media efforts to date have primarily focused on “likes” and “follows” that are now best classed as vanity metrics; and many enterprises are scrambling to find ways to use the social web to increase revenue – including investing in social media and marketing automation solutions that may automate existing processes but still fall short of what’s really at stake: helping to generate more and better-qualified new leads, as well as deeper insights into existing leads and customers.
Enter NextPrinciples, which today announced the launch of its newest solution, representing an emerging category of social marketing automation solutions for the enterprise – the integration of social media, marketing automation, demand gen and CRM in one convenient solution. NextPrinciples offers an elegant and intuitive enterprise grade solution for social marketing automation that enables faster time to revenue from new as well as existing leads.
“Digital spending is skyrocketing, with many enterprises (44 percent in a recent VentureBeat survey) reporting that they use more than three separate platforms for email campaigns, social listening, social selling and more,” said CEO Satya Krishnaswamy. “NextPrinciples is an end-to-end solution that helps businesses bring that spend into perspective; it brings new life to social by generating better leads and enhancing data that you already have in your Marketing Automation and CRM systems in a seamless manner. And, it’s an end to end process that integrates easily with your current systems and processes. We are excited that our early customers have already started seeing measurable business impact from the use of our solution.”
NextPrinciples announced its launch at the SAP SAPPHIRE NOW and ASUG Annual Conference in Orlando, Fla., where Mr. Krishnaswamy is a speaker.
Implementation of NextPrinciples is quick and easy: all NextPrinciples customers have been on-boarded in two hours or less. It’s an easy, perfect fit for people already using popular solutions like Marketo and Eloqua (though not a prerequisite). Plans for both social marketing automation and social media management are priced from $99 to $2,499 per month based on client need and scope. NextPrinciples also offers a 30-day FREE trial which customers can sign-up directly on their website.
