Consultant experiences and comments on Microsoft Outlook
Name of consultant: Ulrich Riedel
Comments: I tried Hubspot, then talked to a Hubspot advisor. We realized that for my needs Hubspot doesn’t work. But MS Outlook does. I would recommend it, but only if someone does NOT use automatization to reach out to prospects/clients.
I use Outlook Contacts for all my business relationships. Tracking the CRM stages of those relationships is one of many dimensions I capture, track and update with any contact. I track relationships with my contacts outside project opps, as part of tracking the contact itself. I record discussion notes, in the “Notes” section of the contact, with time, participants and circumstances. I schedule a task for myself to reach out periodically.
Everyone need some form of CRM tool. Unless you have 10 repeat clients, and that’s it.
