Any software company that pretends to have all the answers to your business’ problems is selling falsehoods. ‘Fully automated marketing’, ‘set it and forget it’, ‘make money whilst you sleep’, or frankly anything with the word ‘hack’ in it.
For the majority of businesses, this kind of language is both unhelpful and unachievable. Because our businesses involve real people we interact with.
Right from the start, I can tell you honestly and frankly that “We don’t have all the answers” at Connectably.
Although Connectably is a relatively new company (launched in March 2018) it is born of years of experiences implementing other people’s CRM and automation software, primarily Infusionsoft, which is a really powerful product – in the right context and with the right training and support.
Because Gareth, our founder, has implemented Infusionsoft with 250+ small businesses (and continues to do so occasionally), he’s seen what other software (not just Infusionsoft) does and doesn’t do.
So we have a good number of answers of what small businesses need and do not need, what they have a desire to achieve, and how they’d like to run their businesses in a joined up way. To experience part of that thought process, it takes just one look at the Connectably Features page.
With our core target market – client services businesses who use Xero accounting software – we’ve tried to address a lot of the common challenges that you face using business software with Connectably.
First things first: what’s a client-services business? Am I in the right place? Is this for me?
If you’re a current or future Xero accountancy software user where you get paid on a recurring basis or via projects and packages for your work, then Connectably is probably a good fit for you. Connectably is a great fit for these two types of business:
- ‘helping services’ businesses: coaching, consulting, accounting, marketing, support services, or;
- ‘home-services’ businesses – flooring, cleaning services, plumbing / HVAC, gardening and landscaping etc
The other important factor in determining if you’re a good fit is your attitude to serving your clients. Compared to your peers, do you take a more professional approach than the vast majority to the way your market and deliver your services? And quite possibly, already charge more, or aspire to charging more for your services than most do?
If these descriptions summarise ‘you’ well, then you may well be in the right place. I’d encourage you to take a look at our ‘Features’ page to discover more about the way Connectably helps businesses like yours and things to look out for as you make your decision.
