Sales Pipelines

The sales pipelines in MagManager provides you with a visual overview of where your clients are in your sales process.  Allowing you to see at a glance where each client is, which allows you to plan what you need to do to process them from a prospect through to a sale.


Why Use MagManager’s Sales Pipeline?
To help you with tracking your leads and improve your sales process. 
You can see all your leads in a single view this make sure every lead is touched and can follow the ideal steps of your internal sales procedures.
It gives you a visual view of how your sales process is coming along. This gives you and your team a better sense of control on how your lead generation should flow, helping you handle each lead better and in a more efficient manner.
How it works:
This new screen will show your complete pipeline of current opportunities. Each stage in the sales cycle is represented by a column. The clients on the board represent your opportunities, and you move them left to right through the sales cycle.

How this helps sales:
The sales pipeline provides a clear picture of the health of the overall pipeline, highlighting where there are potential gaps (need to prospect), too much work in progress (need to prioritise), or blockages in the pipeline that may indicate an issue with the sales process itself.

We have designed it to be really simple to use and flexible to cover publishers who have a mixture of Monthly and Bimonthly magazines, from large teams to small publishers.


The video below provides a full overview of creating sales pipelines in MagManager.

NOTE: Pipelines will only appear in the top navigation bar AFTER you have created the first pipeline.

IMPORTANT NOTE: A client can only appear in ONE sales pipeline at a time, they can not appear in multiple sales pipelines.
