What is a CRM?
CRM stands for Customer Relationship Management. At its simplest definition, a CRM system allows businesses to manage clients and the information associated with them.
Go way beyond names and job titles. With HubSpot CRM, every interaction with a lead is stored in a tidy timeline, including calls, emails, meetings, and notes. You’ll never need to dig through a messy inbox or spreadsheet to figure out where a relationship left off.
MailChimp® or HubSpot®?
Both marketing platforms offer a free tier that provides amazing features, and there is a lot of cross-similarity – so which platform will work for best? Here are our recommendations:
- Choose MailChimp® if you simply want to collect visitor information for remarketing/email purposes. MailChimp® is easier to learn and is the perfect solution for small to medium real estate professionals with under 2,000 contacts.
- Choose HubSpot® if you want more than just a remarketing platform and want to build custom integrations to support your business. HubSpot® has a higher learning curve, however, it can help you manage your business and contacts with robust intelligent tools that can easily be shared with teams and integrates with hundreds of other service providers.
