What are Activities?
Activities are the actions you perform throughout the sales process such as emails, phone calls, and meetings.
Activity Records document the time, date, and subject of your sales activities.
Activities enable you to plan, document, and record your sales related communications and actions.
How can I use Activities?
- Activities keep you connected to your potential customers. Personalized and accurate information can improve communication among teams, as well as improve customer experience. Activities move prospects through the sales pipeline.
- Activities help teams collaborate. Recording your Activities, such as logging phone calls and attaching meeting notes, maintains a record of communication. Other members of the sales team can view when you last communicated with the contact, and pull relevant information from the Activity Record.
- Assign next steps to others on your team. View the Activity Status to quickly view the status of activities you've assigned.
- Activities are your daily to-do list. Always know what needs to be done to nurture your Leads and move your Opportunities through the sales pipeline.
- Activities keep Opportunities from slipping through the cracks. Once you complete an Activity, immediately record a new Activity for the next step in the process. Be sure to include a due date and link any related users. This practice will keep your Leads and Opportunities up to date.
Tip: While you cannot control the outcome of the sales process, you are in control of the Activities you pursue related to your opportunities. Analyze your Activities to evaluate which actions have a history of success. Activity Records allow you to track your Activities and learn from your strengths and weaknesses.
