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 email@example.com to schedule a call.
Some things are certain…death, taxes, and the fact that there will always be a need for plumbers. Couple that with a rosy outlook for residential construction in the U.S., which directly affects the plumbing industry, and you’ve got yourself an opportunity. Even better—if there is a slow season for plumbing, this is it, so reach out to plumbing businesses in your patch before they get too busy.

- Use this angle: Focus on how Service Cloud and Field Service Lightning can help them take the heavy lifting out of scheduling, resource optimization, inventory management, and more.
Ad revenue in the U.S. grew by a hefty 22.7% in 2021 and is poised to have another banner year in 2022, especially when factoring in spending on political midterm election advertising. Digital advertising agencies are well-positioned for what’s ahead, especially those that specialize in social media and/or paid search.
