Can you imagine the plight of the door-to-door salesman: walking from house to house and relying on the courtesy of (mostly) disinterested customers? Now imagine trying to pitch a product to those same customers without getting a door slammed in your face. Let’s just say, it wouldn’t be easy. That’s why the folks here at Acquirent love that we get to sell in the digital age. With that in mind, check out the below list of apps that can help improve your sales strategies.
You meet a lot of people and receive dozens of business cards from potential customers. Stop losing track of these or winding up with a large, unmanageable pile of them stacked on your desk. With the free app—CamCard Lite—you can scan business cards, sync the information with your contacts list as well as sync all of that information across your various devices.
Apple’s Keynote app
As we’ve discussed before, one of the keys to selling is preparation. When an opportunity falls in your lap, you need to have a plan in place and take immediate action. For Apple users, there’s a handy app called Apple’s Keynote that can help you do just that. The app allows you to create simple presentations on your iPhone or other portable Apple devices. It also integrates well with Microsoft PowerPoint, so if you need to give a presentation on the fly, this app will take out the guesswork.
Sometimes the simplest app can be a lifesaver. That’s where Profit Story comes in. Profit Story is a business calculator that allows you to calculate quick sales information on the go. For small businesses who carry fewer product units, this app can help you calculate Unit Cost, Unit Sell Price, Profit Margin %, Break Even, and so much more.
