Zoho Email Marketing Nirvana…

SOON. I hope. At least that's what I'm being told is going to happen. If you have been following any of our recent posts on this topic (such as my post on the new Zoho Campaign funtionality or Adam's recent Big but post), then you have a sense that we're getting very...

The Importance of Being Urgent…

I know...that is really not what Oliver Wilde meant when writing the Importance of Being Ernest, but it sounded like a snappy title so I'm running with it. This has been a very busy year so far. By busy I mean that all across the company we are working on initiatives...

Be the Squeaky Ball, Danny

I've never been accused of being a wallflower. I'm not a "whatever happens, happens" kind of guy. I'm really not at all "mellow", I'm definitely a Type A, and in fact many friends have "affectionately" referred to me as volatile. I am, however (and I'll be the first...

Things I like about Zoho 2011: Changes to Zoho Campaigns

It's been a while since I wrote about how our sales and marketing teams use Zoho. When we first implemented the CRM system a couple of years ago we learned how to adjust our lead qualification and pipeline processes to best take advantage of some universal workflows....

5 will get you SIx – Productivity is Job 1

I can't believe that it is almost the end of March already. As Q1 comes to a close it struck me that Q1 is really all about preparing for the rest of the year ahead. Not unlike Spring Training, which is just finishing up as the real Baseball season begins in earnest...

5 will get you SIx…Part I

I think that the number one question I hear from our customers is "When is the next version coming out?" This is immediately followed by the number two question - "What new features will it have?" Since it is my job to communicate with our customers (and try to make...

I Love it When a Plan Comes Together

I was a fan of the A-Team when I was younger, and I actually had the opportunity to meet some of the cast members when I was working for TV 20 in San Francisco back in the late 80s. They came into the studio to shoot some promos and I got to spend some time with Dirk...

D is for Data Part II – At your Request

In my last post I referenced our new Data Request form on the D-Tools website. This form is an important part of our re-tooled process for collecting, managing, and ultimately delivering product data to our users. Before I outline the steps for using this new form I...

D is for Data – Part I

As referenced in some of our recent posts, we are in the process of reworking our entire data gathering and distribution process.  Thanks to some great work by Randy Bownds and the rest of the data management and product development teams we have not only improved the...

There’s no “I” in Beard, but….

OK, I'm hoping this will be the last sports to business analogy article I will write for the rest of the year (unless of course the Giants win the World Series and I will have to write SOMETHING). Well, they did it. This improbable group of outcasts, misfits, rookies,...

Pulling on the Same Rope – In it to Win it Part II

In my last post I attempted to connect October baseball with success in our everyday work. The key points I was trying to make were: perseverance, overcoming obstacles, and staying focused on a goal are cornerstones for success, whether on the field, in the field, or...

In it to win it

If you are any kind of sports fan at all then you must love October. October is a great month on the sports calendar because it has almost everything going for it - football is in full swing, the hockey season starts with the NBA in training camp - and it's baseball...
