Overview

Salesforce is the most advanced CRM on the market. It comes with a long list of innovative features for sales, marketing, and service teams. It also offers business modules, or "clouds," for industries such as healthcare, media, and the public sector. This makes for a complex, enterprise-grade CRM system that can serve businesses of every stripe.
This affordable CRM is best for small agencies, freelancers, and sales teams of all sizes. It’s lean, mean, and has the functionality you need to scale quickly. With unlimited contacts and no commitment, it’s a great fit for busy entrepreneurs. You get lead capture forms, tagging tools, email integration, proposal builder, and other advanced features for just $US 39/month/first seat. Additional users can be added at $US 20/month/user. There’s also a basic ten-dollar-per-month plan for single users.

Ease of use

Once you master its handling, Salesforce opens up in all of its glory. But learning the ropes will take time and training; this is not a small, out-of-the-box CRM solution. Salesforce's commitment to innovation also means the CRM continuously adds more features, so there's always something new to learn. The interface itself is intuitive and well-designed, but some users trip over the mountain of features.
Funnel CRM is geared toward SMBs. It’s chock full of essential features without becoming bulky or complex. This lean system is intuitive and easy to learn, making it perfect for solo entrepreneurs and small teams who don't have a lot of time or money.

Support

Salesforce offers three plans for customer service. The free support is limited to tech support and online resources. For tech support, simply submit an online support ticket. Free online resources are extensive and include demos, Trailblazer Community, and self-help portal, among others. The paid plan is 30% of your net subscription and offers 24/7 support, expert coaching, and developer support. You can also get a customized signature support plan. The price depends on the complexity of your support needs.
Funnel is a service that aims to replace the standard contact forms found on many websites. If you’ve ever had to set up a form like this yourself, you may have experienced first–hand the problems you can run into, and are aware of the skills that are needed to implement, create and troubleshoot one. Not only does Funnel provide everyone with easily customisable forms with copy/paste integration, it also comes with a set of useful tools to help you manage the contact requests you receive, send proposals, and manage your customers.

Who is it for?

Salesforce's mission is to bring companies and their customers together. In theory, every customer-centric business can benefit from the Salesforce platform. However, the size and complexity of this CRM may be overwhelming for smaller organizations. You can do a free trial of the software and see for yourself.
This tool is suitable for freelancers and small businesses that have websites with contact forms. Since it’s built for SMBs, it is packed with all the essential features without making the system complicated and bulky. Some examples of these include contact forms, customer tracking, deals tracking, optimized communication channels, and proposals. Funnel CRM offers plans to cater to the needs and budget of freelancers, SMBs and large companies' sales personnel.
