New Year Resolutions: Weight Loss and CRM

Top 10 Similarities

It occurred to me yesterday, watching the endless TV ads for weight loss systems, the new year resolution for losing weight and implementing a customer relationship management (CRM) system have a lot in common. Consider the following:
1. The beginning of the new year is a great time to get started
2. Losing weight and CRM are not things people find enjoyable, at first
3. Best to make it a habit, you can’t do without
4. Often most enjoyable when done with other people
5. The simpler the system, the better
6. A lot of people don’t succeed in achieving their goal
7. The more you do it, the better the results
8. Tracking with a mobile app makes it easier and more fun
9. Being cost effective matters
10. Seeing the results take shape, is the ultimate pay off

As we start the new year, we wish you the best of luck in achieving your personal as well as your business goals.
