Stop a sales funnel sheet from stealing your precious time
If you're still relying on manual tools such as a sales funnel sheet to help you plan time and manage customer activities, you don't know what you're missing. A sales funnel sheet isn't doing you any favors in terms of time management.
Improve forecasting, deal tracking, and CRM
A sales funnel sheet might have served you reasonably well in the past but part of the reason for that is that you probably didn't know there was an easier way to do things. More automated software lets you share this info without having to email the most current version, lets you collaborate on projects with others, allows you to attach contracts, quotes, emails, and other documentation to your dashboard so that you have everything in one place, and it can help you get revealing reports that can help you with strategic planning for the future. A sales funnel sheet won't do these things for you.
You could be missing out
By not doing things in a more automated way, you could be missing out on many opportunities. A sales funnel sheet is an archaic method that leaves far too much room for errors and take a lot of time for you to manage manually. Besides, what if your hard drive fails before you remember to back it up and you lose valuable information? Speaking of which, when was the last time you backed it up?
