RelateIQ is so Good I Just Want to Punch it in the Fucking Face.

This article was written to be listened to, not read — so I encourage you to do just that on Umano.

Have you ever loved something so much that you just want to kill it?

Literally, I mean smother it — squeeze the life out and smash it to pieces.

That’s how I feel about RelateIQ. It can’t be normal. I’m not normal. But it’s not normal. It’s anything but normal old CRM.

I spent 10 years in the CRM space, between 2001 and 2011, building the lead management company, Velocify, originally named Leads360, and which I started in my garage.

So I know a thing or two about SaaS — and I know a thing or two about CRM.

But man, did I get dropped on my head when I found this product.

I could wax on about the history and transformation of the CRM industry, and all the players, straight dissertation style. But I won’t. I’ll keep it simple.

RelateIQ is a fundamentally different approach to CRM. It’s designed to work with your sales style, whether you’re a one-man show or a distributed sales force.

It’s easy to turn any type of communication directly into a lead.

Fuck me, the concept they call “lists” is straight genius. Trust me.

Every email is automatically tied to the sales records so I never forget to update this or that.

Follow up is so incredibly streamlined it’s almost fun to stay on top of shit.

It’s green. It’s pretty. It’s fast. And most importantly it’s simple.

Please don’t fuck it up by “salesforcing” it.
