Monthly, FSM compiles data and research from interviews with our clients, consultants, and our extensive network of industry experts to identify sales opportunities for our partners at Salesforce. We call it “Fast Forward.” Please sign up below if you’d like to get this info delivered via email.

March Madness is upon us, and it’s time to bring your A-game. Fortunately, FSM is here dropping dimes on where to find opportunities, move sales conversations forward, and even gauge how well existing clients are using the Salesforce platform. Read on for the March edition of Fast Forward!

In this edition:

  • Check, check, 1,2,3: Gauge how well existing clients are doing with a Health Check.
  • Time to call the plumber: Where to look for opportunities this month.
  • Move the ball: Use this playbook in your next sales conversation.
  • And the Oscar goes to…The rundown of new logos signed, industries served, and Salesforce products wrangled by FSM in the last month.


How would you rate your pain?

Tell us where it hurts

It’s the new fiscal year, and you’re probably getting to know a lot of new (to you) accounts. If you find that your clients aren’t satisfied or getting their full value from Salesforce, FSM can help assess how well they are using the platform with a Health Check. The process starts with a 60-minute call with one of our experts that’s free to businesses that use Salesforce. Just send me an email at to schedule a call.

Private label food and beverage

Private label food and beverage manufacturing has outpaced major brands for the last four years and is projected to grow from 33% of the market to 50% by 2023. In addition, the current high inflation rates may actually present further opportunities for these companies as shoppers look for ways to keep their grocery bills in check.

  • Use this angle: Focus on how Manufacturing Cloud can help create more accurate business predictions, manage inventory appropriately, and simplify the quoting process.

Machining services

As the manufacturing sector continues to emerge from the pandemic, growth is predicted across various sectors of the machining services market, which is estimated to reach $4.2 B in the U.S. in 2022. CNC machining, laser machining, and the machine tools market are good bets for areas of opportunity.

  • Use this angle: Focus on how Salesforce can help level up their sales and marketing processes, helping them better understand, educate, and communicate with potential customers.

Wealth management

The wealth management market is on a healthy trajectory with an expected CAGR of 8% through 2025. Wealth management platforms, in particular, are poised for strong growth as fintech companies seek to give investors more tools to withstand current economic uncertainty.

  • Use this angle: Focus on how Salesforce can help financial organizations, as well as SaaS companies that serve the financial market, provide a seamless digital experience for their customers and scale business processes.


Smells like potential.
