Building a strong foundation to grow on
Small businesses come in many shapes and forms, from professional and personal services providers to retailers to manufacturing. But one thing that almost all have in common is the desire to grow revenues and increase profits.

To engage and retain today’s savvy customers, small businesses need an effective approach to create, nurture and convert leads, and to foster repeat business and referrals. But too often, small businesses try to grow the business with a tangle of disjointed point solutions-which are likely to get in the way of growth instead of enabling it.
