Why Salesforce or Pipedrive aren't enough for doing sales in 2019

During summertime, you might have time to optimize your sales process and tools and therefore I was inspired to share some insights form me, especially if you work in headhunting, recruiting or sales. For some years I use 4-5 sales CRM's / tools parallel because there is not the all in one solution, that satisfies me, and I will tell you why. I need all of the following things in my sales process and all tools have to communicate together in the end via zapier automation, but I do not need more than 5 tools for this. Yes, sales have become more complex and are not just having a phone, pencil, and notebook anymore. So what must a CRM do for me: Control all relevant contacts regarding duplicates and catch updates from the web automatically,if some contact changes his social media profile or information, that is available on the internet about him/her.Show follow-ups automatically and reminds you, but not by static tasks you set up(e.g. every 2 months or 3 weeks),but via checking your in…

Less is more. We shut down to re-open

After 7 years of free blogging for my 17.000 followers on #LinkedIn, over 160.000 visits on my other blog websites during this time and more then 130 articles I decided to shut down this chapter. And... to re-open a new one with the BREADHUNTER Members Club. It's time now for more quality before quantity and a closer community of those, who got it...what's really going on, without generic #mimimi #content and #people. If you are used to read FAZ, Zeit, WELT, Handelsblatt, NZZ, NYT and Times London, you might know, what is the difference between free, generic, neoliberalism content and real journalism. I believe we will turn back now to these structures. We have no problem to pay 1.000 $ and more for a new IPhone, or 500 $ for the SUV leasing fee per month, but we are to avaricious to spend at least 3,5 $ per week for good content, which is a cup of coffee. So get your brain back, and think about, which good habits from the last 25 years we have lost and which addictive ones we are …

#LinkedIn, what has become of you? - fix it now or it's time to say goodbye...

LinkedIn is a business platform to connect with great people, right?

And these 3 guys from the pic above are smart, but 2 of them did a great job for social media 18 years ago and 1 of them made a great turnaround of Microsoft, and now?

Did you become lazy or just horny for even more profit during the last 2 years?

Has Microsoft to try to get the money back they invested in the acquisition of LinkedIn via stupid ads and content?
What is the status-quo of LinkedIn?
"It has become a 2nd Facebook-Gram and company advertising platform and this really, really, (sorry guys) SUCKS! :-)." Maybe it would be an idea to have a paid account, where I just see relevant info, that really matters, no boring old school info an I am sure AI could do this if we just let AI do. So, I want to go deeper into the topic, because some would think, I do not know how to handle my #LinkedIn account and therefore I see so much bullshit every day, maybe you can help me if I have missed something. I wanted to…

Kill social media to be more social without media - A review of the ROI after 7 years

So what's next? How can we change and prepare for the future instead of stewing in our own juice all the time? Yes, social media and LinkedIn is getting more boring for 4-5 years, and super boring since late 2018, because of all these generic posts big companies from DACH area create and copy from each other, but also from newbies on LinkedIn. Team pics with high-fives, funny offices with playground and unboxing my new Mac on the 1st business day has become common if you want to be an innovative company, and people like it or they don't like it and don't see it, because they are just creating content all the time, without watching..., hm ?! So, let me take a look back to 2012, where I started being more active on LinkedIn, yes I was before more on Xing and Facebook from 2003 - 2011, I believe the content was better or more international, the nowadays, maybe it was not so generic here, because it was a business platform for international people, who really worked globally. Now…

Part II. - An everyday plan about how getting your brain back in times social media overload and #mimimi content addiction

After getting bored about social media for 4 years more and more, I changed my behavior regarding workflows and social media by a 180-degree turnaround and I like it more and more. It's not about using only paper, pen, and telephone again, it's more about self-discipline and also about the devices you use. Tech and Social Media is ok, if you create something, that makes others think or has a value, but not about reading feeds all the time and answering silly WhatsApp messages and emails. These 2 Videos from Remarkable and from Punkt made me more to think about it and change it, because I was bored about our behavior for the last 4-5 years, yelling bullshit via social media into the world and waiting every year for the new Samsung or Apple device coming out with some more addictive features. Yes, I like tech and devices, but now it's time to select more and more wisely.


So what did I do now? I made some rules, how to use social media and my devices during the day and also while…
