Tired of free trial offers? Why not make free trials work for your business instead of brushing them off?

You know the routine: Companies offer free trials to hook you. Taking advantage of those offers, as free trials are a great way for your business to try a product before fully committing and they can save loads of money in the long run. Below are a few products you should consider testing:

Cloud Storage

Companies, especially small businesses, rely on cloud storage to keep their data safe. Free trials are good for several reasons, namely for you to figure out whether going completely to the cloud is good for you or whether a hybrid cloud storage system is better. Since there are numerous cloud storage options (too many to list here), and almost all of them offer a free trial period, you should compare available services on a review site to see which one is best for you.

Customer Relationship Management (CRM) Programs

CRM programs allow businesses to capitalize on, track, manage and enhance customer interactions. These systems not only keep customer and company contacts organized, but also allow you to target those customers and sales leads through the use of personas – a semi-customized method of grouping specific customers by their interests. Since these programs are so valuable, it is important for companies to find the ones that work the best for your business. While testing several systems can be time consuming, it is cost effective since CRM programs can be expensive, especially if you find yourself knee-deep in the wrong program.
