MCM provides you with additional tabs and fields so you can add any data you need to help identify and push a lead through the sales cycle. The Interest tab allows you to track the initial lead source, interest date, and marketing campaigns as well as add your own customized fields to gain invaluable insight into your marketing efforts. The Demographics tab helps you gain a clearer picture of your target market by enabling you to track SIC codes, number of employees, and annual revenue as well as fields you add such as budget amount and decision date.

It also provides you with a document library so you can attach the appropriate files to your emails.

With MCM, you have the ability to to track all of your marketing efforts and evaluate the results. The information for each campaign that you run can be entered into MCM, including the budget, estimated responses, expected results, actual responses, and opportunities. As the lead progresses through the sales cycle, you’ll be able to add quotes and orders to the record. The information will still be accessible in MCM after the lead is promoted to Business Partners so you can determine the success of a campaign.
Spread Your Message through Social Media
Because of the importance of social media in your marketing efforts, MCM makes it easy for you to not only get your message out by email but also through Twitter, LinkedIn and Facebook. MCM allows you to set up the content you want posted, then lets you select which social media accounts you want to use. Once you post to an account, you can create an activity to show the content was distributed.
