User management is something that most MSD users understand. But how do you put this to work for you in the marketing sector? We will be discussing that today and giving you some resources on this as well so you can learn how to properly train your people for this. We’ll even talk about some nontraditional methods for you to take advantage of this as well. Based on sound business principles these can help you figure out how to make the most of a good customer and drop bad ones.
User types are the first area you need to take advantage of. By offering plans which have a level of accessibility mixed in you can actually make extra money from your support system as well. This will allow you to charge a bit extra for some customers who have the money to spend. You can also give them a higher level of quality in service. While this sounds a bit odd to some it’s a well-accepted practice in the industry today.
Tracking all of this can be difficult if your people do not have the training. Make sure that they get it in one way or another. Otherwise it’s a simple exercise of adding these people through simple forms that allow you to manage all of this in short order.
Fundraising management software is actually related to marketing as well, as we have discussed before. Now that charities and nonprofits have a crowded market the industry has become highly competitive. The same tools which allow you to help a customer can also help a charity stay afloat in a market where many other charities are seeking to cut you out of the industry in short order as well.
Security is another important feature that user management gives you. Ideally you should give each person only what they need in order to get their job done. For the average user they should be able to see the basic information about how their business works with theirs or what they buy. Be sure not to mistakenly give anyone too much power but it’s easy to abuse when that happens.
There are many resources for learning about this. You can also read our various articles on it as well. No matter who you learn about this from it is good to simply learn about it as well. Learning about it and setting it all up are two different things though so you should be very careful when managing all of this.
For many users you will also want to let them see a lot of information but not change it. This is because many people in business have a reason to skew information in their favor. Since the system is easily customizable anyone with significant access could mark shipments as received when they were not, for example. So make sure that you have the accountability needed to keep everything working right while not allowing some untrustworthy users to change information. It’s a difficult but necessary balance but essential.
