If you are not already familiar with Nimble, Nimble is a Social CRM that has revolutionized CRM in a number of ways …
- It does the 3 Cs (contacts, calendar, and communications) right and in a way that is actually usable.
- Nimble will create, and flush out social profiles, contact records for you and it will do so automatically. Or, as Nimble says … automagically.
- Emails sync both ways without the need for a BCC and Google Calendar will do the same.
- And much, much more.
One of the biggest innovations of Nimble has been it’s Smart Contacts App. This browser extension will allow you to take your Nimble database with you literally anywhere on the web, including social platforms and other CRM’s, and it will also reside as a sidebar in Gmail or Outlook 365. It even works within your full Nimble web application
The Smart Contacts App performs dual functions. Highlight a person or company name and, where a record is already in Nimble, it will show you that record, allow you to edit or update it, or even add notes, tags, or tasks. I am doing this outside of the actual Nimble app itself.
Where no record is found in Nimble, a live preview of what that record would look like is generated. Once again, you can edit any information and then … you can add that record directly into Nimble from wherever you are. Pretty awesome. Well, the Smart Contacts App just got … awesomer!
Now you will also have the ability to have Nimble search for additional information such as email addresses, addresses, and phone numbers! Nimble Prospector is an add on premium service for the free Smart Contacts App that is included with every Nimble subscription but, it is certainly well worth the money (read on for pricing)!
Think of all of the time that you spend researching, trying to find, a contact’s phone number or email. These are two of the most important ways that you can reach out to that individual. As an added benefit, that person’s email address is a critical element that helps Nimble to identify and verify that person’s social profiles which are then used to enrich their contact record.
Once you have created contact records using the app, you can then easily group message them from within Nimble. For example, use Prospector in LinkedIn or Twitter to create records for people from the same company or from those people within a conversation. Then use group messaging to send personalized follow-up emails to each participant.
You might also be excited to read about Nimble’s free integration with CircleBack that is also integrated into the Smart Contacts App with Prospector and is used to harvest additional contact information from that person’s email signature line. CircleBack is also used for business card scanning with Nimble’s iOS mobile app.
Nimble Prospector comes built into every Nimble Business Edition with 25 lookups per user per month. After the first 25 free monthly contact enrichment lookups, Prospector fees start at $9.95 for 50 lookups per month, $29.95 for 200 lookups per month, $59.95 for 500 lookups per month and $99.95 for 1,000 lookups per month. Additional Nimble Prospector lookups are shared across an entire Nimble team account.
