Salaries escalate as the demand for CRM grows
Intelligent People, a leading Marketing, eCommerce & Product Management recruitment agency, have noticed an interesting trend throughout the second quarter: the increasing importance of Web Analytics for eCommerce organisations has seen a huge increase in demand for CRM Managers, Email Marketing Managers, CRM Analysts, Customer Insight Managers and Web Analysts, to the point that demand now outstrips supply and salary levels are escalating sharply.
With a strong CRM Programme in place, online and offline organisations can execute more effective Marketing Campaigns that target the right customers at the right time. Organisations across the Digital, eCommerce, Technology & Telecommunications markets have realised the importance of knowing what their customers are thinking. Good CRM can help consumers feel valued and this brings with it the goldmine of customer loyalty, retention and stronger relationships with the customer base.
Rick Cook at Inside CRM identifies the five key benefits of CRM, which are further enhanced once one considers the current economic climate. He lists them as follows:
- 1. Get more out of your established customers
- 2. Identify and concentrate on your best customers
- 3. Target your customer development efforts
- 4. Keep your existing customers loyal
- 5. Work smarter, not just harder
