Did you know that Salesforce prides itself on having 9 different features and ways that it can help your business thrive? Sadly, a majority of companies that invest in Salesforce don’t end up capitalizing on all the features that the CRM software offers.
This is mostly due to a lack of understanding. Since business owners and managers don’t know how to customize the platform to their needs, the software goes unused. You can avoid this problem by hiring freelance Salesforce administrators to help.
See below for several ways that freelance Salesforce administrators can help your business thrive with its CRM software for years to come.
1. Cost-Efficient Service
As you may well know, in-house employees are never as costly as their annual salary, they’re actually more expensive than their annual salary. By the time you’ve paid their salary, taxes, and benefits, they cost a heck of a lot more.
Here’s a shocking statistic for you: recent research has found that in-house employees are typically up to 1.4 times their base salary.
What does this have to do with Salesforce? If you’re wanting to hire an in-house Salesforce administrator for your staff, you’ll be spending a lot of money to do so.
Glassdoor.com has found that the average Salesforce Administrator salary is around $56,000 to $110,000 a year. That means the lowest you’d be paying for an in-house administrator (overall) is $78,400.
By hiring a freelance Salesforce administrator, you can get all of the help that you need at a much lower cost. At Cutopia, we offer simple pricing for our services:
- Tiny Contract: $1,000 per month
- Small Contract: $2,500 per month
- Medium Contract: $5,000 per month
That means that—even if you bought our most expensive package—you’d be saving at least $18,000. We cater to your administration requests, we offer developer hours, and we provide it all with a quick turnaround. You can’t beat it!
2. Variety of Services
Let’s say you hire an in-house Salesforce administrator for your company. Then, after hiring them, you find out that they don’t have any experience with Salesforce development.
As a result, you either have to deal with the growing pains as they learn the tricks of the trade or outsource to a Salesforce developer for help. But what if you didn’t have to hire an employee, but always had a developer that was only a call away?
We offer developer hours for both our small and medium monthly packages. With the small package, you get 2 developer hours per month and with the medium, you get 5 developer hours per month. Not to mention that we guarantee a 24-hour turnaround!
We also offer services such as:
- Providing you with a dedicated account manager (medium package only)
- Developer capabilities
- Anywhere from 10 to 40 basic administration request fulfillment each month
- Anywhere from 2 to 10 advanced administration request fulfillment each month
Rather than hiring one person with one set of skills, you have access to an entire team of experienced freelance Salesforce administrators. All of which are ready to help you customize your platform and get the most out of your Salesforce CRM software.
3. Efficient Service
There’s nothing wrong with taking pride in your work. You’ve built your business from the ground up, learning new things along the way.
However, many business owners waste countless hours trying to learn the Salesforce software on their own. It leaves them frustrated and disappointed with the lack of production they’ve received from their investment. Don’t let yourself fall into that trap!
By hiring freelance Salesforce administrators, you’ll gain access to efficient service whenever you need it.
If you need to reorganize call campaigns for your sales staff, we’ve got you. If you want to reorganize your dashboard to show call metrics, that’s no problem at all.
No matter what service you need to be performed, we guarantee that it will take no longer than a 48-hour window. With our small and medium package, we take it to the next level by guaranteeing a 24-hour turnaround!
4. Scalable Work
Perhaps the biggest reason you shouldn’t hire an in-house Salesforce administrator is due to the lack of workload. If you’re a small business, you won’t have projects to keep them busy at all times.
There will be times where they sit at their desk and don’t do anything at all. That hardly justifies paying them 1.4 times their salary.
Freelance Salesforce administrators are there whenever you need them. If your Salesforce is working fluently, you don’t have to pay them a dime. If a problem arises, they’ll be ready to help you out at a moment’s notice.
5. Knowledgeable Service
Did you know that to receive their title, Salesforce administrators have to receive their certification? Salesforce offers credentials to ensure that all administrators know the ins and outs of their system.
In that regard, all Salesforce Administrators receive the same certification. A freelancer has more knowledge than the typical in-house employee because they’ve helped so many different businesses customize the software to their business model.
For that reason, a freelance administrator can be more useful to you. They can offer insight into how to set up your CRM system to capitalize on its features.
