Hi ya'll. We are attempting to figure out a CRM system. We have been trying to figure out if Investorfuse will work for what we need. I would love to chat with someone who is currently using the system to find out if we are on the right track or should look elsewhere for a CRM for us.
If you have a few minutes to chat with me, I'd be most grateful. Message me with your number and a good time to call.
@Elizabeth Wilson you can call me
@Ramy Barsoum - Awesome! Thanks! I'll message you now.
Were you able to get some good feedback from Ramy? I’d be interested in hearing what he had to say.
@Jay Simpson - @Ramy Barsoum was super kind in sending me his contact info. But I decided it wasn't worth bothering him; Investorfuse was simply required more support and a higher learning curve that I wanted. I watched all their videos and spent hours with their tech support (great guys btw), but it just didn't work for us. Disappointed because I have been spending so much time trying to find a plug-in-play REI lead management system.
This is the part of small business ownership that I do not enjoy.
I completely understand. That’s where my business partner and I are at currently. Have you decided on what CRM you will be using then? If not, please update us when you do!
@Jay Simpson - No, not yet. I feel like I've at least looked at all the specific REI CRMs and some non-REIs, podio-based and non-podio. There are quite a few new players in the REI CRM field. And I've also been talking with some VAs who could do custom podio work.
Personally, I am simply exhausted trying to be both our IT tech person and a business owner!
I'll report back on what I decided on!
@Elizabeth Wilson I’d recommend for you other competitors than InvestorFuse, Wholesalehacker.com & ReflexCRM..both are cheaper almost half the prices. However, I found Wholesalehacker provides extra features with same prices as ReflexCRM..I haven’t tried Wholesalehacker yet but I guess it’s very good one.
If you have any experience with them please update this forum ;)
@Ramy Barsoum - Thanks! Those two are on my list to check out!
I'll definitely keep ya'll informed!
I'm also in the CRM hunt. For my construction company we use Salesforce, but it's too expensive and overwhelming for what I want to do for my real estate business. I have taken a closer look at Wholesalehacker.com so far and received great customer service from @Michael DeFrancisis . I like what he built and I'm trying to figure out if it's the right CRM for how I conduct my business. @Elizabeth Wilson please do let us know which platform you choose. I'll keep you posted on my progress as well.
@Ori Skloot - I'll definitely keep you posted. If you don't already know Podio, I'd suggest start familiarizing yourself with it. That was one problem we had with Investorfuse: I didn't understand how Podio worked well enough to understand its capabilities.
At this point I feel like I've at least looked at all the CRMs that are directly REI related (and many that are simply CMRs).
I'm going through @Michael DeFrancisis videos now.
Thanks for tagging me in! Let me know if you have any other questions. @Ramy Barsoum hit the nail on the head with the extra features. When I decided to build the system, I built it because I personally couldn't find any turn-key system that provided every features from start to finish that I needed. Most of the systems were just pieces of the puzzle.
The learning curve was also something that I thought about when building the system. To combat that I have a 25 page users manual that I encourage all of my clients to read before and during using the system, it really helps expedite the learning curve.
If you are interested, I can also connect you with some investors who have already purchased and been using Wholesale Hacker, so that you can get their feedback on how it's working for them.
@Elizabeth Wilson and @Ori Skloot , did you figure out a CRM that you like? I'm doing the same search right now! I'm a pretty technical person, so I _may_ just setup Podio + Globiflow myself, but I feel like something that's already built might save time/effort and get me moving immediately... I'm not a programmer though, so I'd still have some missing pieces... Thoughts?
quick and easy Podio solution . You can customize just what you need and scale as needed. I’ve done it many times and it’s not overkill like the CRM suites.
@Elizabeth Wilson ... did you happen to find one? I'm watching this thread. Thanks
@Elizabeth Wilson have u tried investorfuse 2.0? It is no longer paired with podio
Yes I think I’m going will the godfather crm.. it’s what property mob uses check it out..
