Here are three ways you can provide your team with more insight by integrating various analytics reports into your sales management platforms.
1. For SaaS and ecommerce: Pipedrive plus Ringostat.
One of the most useful recent integrations, this one presents lots of exciting opportunities for businesses.
Pipedrive is the sales management platform allowing you to capture leads, create an efficient lead nurturing and optimize the sales process to its full potential. Ringostat is the call analytics platform allowing you to increase the performance of your advertising campaigns and optimize business workflow.
Together they provide powerful opportunities for small businesses, allowing them to capture incoming calls automatically, analyze which types of calls worked best for converting leads into customers and to identify what's your company busiest and most successful time of the day, in terms of successful calls.
The two tools will let you analyze and maximize your team efficiency by creating the most effective workflow.
2. For B2B: Google Analytics into leads with Leadfeeder.
People who have visited your site are your potential leads. They may remember your brand, and they will be more willing to discuss your offering.
Leadfeeder is a solid B2B lead generation platform that recognizes that opportunity, turning your Google Analytics reports into a lead powerhouse. The tool identifies companies behind your Google Analytics sessions, verifying those leads for you based on how much time they spend on your site and how closely you are connected to their employees on Linkedin.

Leadfeeder sorts your leads based on how often the person visited your site and how many pages they went through before exiting. The idea is that the more the web visitor is familiar with your site, the more chances you have to convert them into customers. Leadfeeder also has some neat project management tools, allowing you to set up alerts based on the traffic source and automatically share different types of leads with members of your team.
It's a good idea to create specific Leadfeeder filters to monitor leads that visit your lead generation pages, like video teasers, public case studies and ebook download pages. This way you'll be able to measure the effectiveness of your landing pages as well as customize your pitch.
3. For Anyone: Salesforce plus Google Analytics into Cyfe.
If you haven't heard of Salesforce, you haven't been listening. It's everywhere these days. Salesforce is rumored to be interested in acquiring Twitter.
