Folk developed  a new CRM system that is both versatile and powerful.

Folk is a next-generation CRM created by eFounders, a European startup company. "CRM is the most popular SaaS [software-as-a-service] category. Salesforce has the greatest market capitalization in the SaaS business" according to co-founder and COO Simo Lemhandez. "However, it's also a category that contains products some of which are regarded obsolete," he continued.

For example, Lemhandez believes it is too difficult to tailor a big CRM software to your specific requirements. "Even though we're all acclimated to the self-serve paradigm, we've all heard of Salesforce's integration teams," he added.

Folk, like many current SaaS applications, takes inspiration from well-known solutions that are both versatile and powerful. Notion, Airtable, Figma, and Shopify are just a few examples.

Folk has been iterating on its beta product for the past 18 months. There are 10,000 people waiting to test it out on the company's queue. You don't need an integration team to get started. You'll be prompted to create a workspace and invite your peers when you initially join up.

Users may import contacts, emails, and calendars into the application thanks to a Google Workspace interface. Folk immediately begins merging duplicates, indexing all fields, and enhancing contact data in your contact database.

Folk users may search their contact database with a single keyboard shortcut. You can look up a person's name, a company's name, and so on. You can start exploiting your network once you've laid this foundation.

Folk allows you to arrange your connections by creating groups. Each group might represent a project or a group of individuals. For example, you might build a group for public relations, another for existing investors, still another for new clients, and so on.

Folk allows you to send bulk messages using variables like first and last names. Members of a team may also make remarks to a contact to ensure that everyone is on the same page. There's also a function that serves as a reminder.

Folk competes against traditional CRM products such as Salesforce and HubSpot, as well as database and spreadsheet applications like as Notion, Airtable, Coda, and Excel.

 

Building value-added lead magnets with a high conversion rate that delivers value

Leads make or break sales, but drawing prospects and transforming them into purchasers is an art that few have mastered. According to Hubspot, getting traffic and leads is the largest difficulty for 61% of marketers. Why?

A website's visibility is now hampered by three issues. The digital competition, for starters, is completely tailored for Google's search engine. Second, new privacy rules in Europe and the United States prohibit data acquisition, restricting a variety of marketing options. Finally, people are becoming increasingly concerned about the benefit-cost analysis of giving firms their contact information.

However, just because you're having challenges doesn't imply you've given up hope. Those that properly match lead generation with the interests of their potential buyers, on the other hand, will gain a considerable competitive edge. The objective is to use lead magnets as a way to get a foot in the door for ongoing involvement.

Let's take a look at what lead magnets are and how you can use them to create a solid customer connection from the ground up.

The enticing charm of lead magnets

The motions of the +/- poles in magnetic fields produce energy in physics. It's the same with websites: by combining multiple magnets that trigger various activities, you may build a strong atmosphere for piqueing a user's attention.

A lead magnet is on-demand material that encourages visitors to give you their contact information so you may follow up with them later. In a survey of 1,000 bloggers, we discovered that those who used lead magnets were 57 percent more likely to report positive content marketing outcomes.

Currently, 96% of visitors to your website aren't ready to make a purchase. Instead, they're either learning about your brand (awareness stage) or considering your items as one of several choices (consideration stage). During these early stages, you want potential customers to provide their contact information so that you may follow up with tailored emails in the future. Unfortunately, only a small percentage of consumers willingly pass out their information in this manner. This is where attractive magnets come into play.
