$12 Billion Dollars.
This is how much the world will spend, every year, on Customer Relationship Management software.
This is the number of CRM products using proven techniques to help business owners, like yourself, stay motivated and engaged as a sales professional or small business owner.
Most small businesses begin with a dream. The founders have a vision for something new, something greater than themselves. Achieving this dream is typically much, much more difficult than the founders could have possibly imagined. And the one thing that gets them through to the finish is their personal belief in the dream.
We created SalesGoals.com to help small business owners track the most important aspect of their business: their customers. It provides the standard features every business needs, to track customers and opportunities. More importantly, SalesGoals.com is there to provide motivation and inspiration when you need it most. It is fully integrated with an iPhone application to enable updates and changes while on the road.
A recent study by the Hay Group found that companies with engaged employees produced 2.5 times as much revenue as their less motivated competitors. Think for a moment what doubling your revenue would do for your business.
The research is there. Why not use it?
Decades of research have given us methods and techniques to motivate both individuals and teams to succeed. These quantifiable techniques are used every day in athletics to produce great results. We're using that same research to make better products for salespeople and business owners.
We are focused on providing a platform that incorporates techniques proven to make an impact on sales, the lifeblood of every business. We integrate these techniques into a workflow your team members are probably already using. SalesGoals packages motivational and inspirational techniques into an iPhone app and web-based software designed for salespeople and small enterprises.

What they say
Ask any sales trainer or coach. Goal-setting, motivation, and keeping a positive attitude is critical for sales. This is too important to leave it up to chance.
How it works
SalesGoals uses research-based motivational psychology, proven to be effective. We use methods like smart goal-setting, positive feedback, reinforcement, and the reticular activating system (RAS) to keep you engaged. As a business person, you already know what you should be doing. SalesGoals is there to help you want to.
Start your day with an image. A photo of your kids, your partner, the boat you're hoping to buy, whatever is meaningful for you. We can't expect a poster of some guy hanging from a cliff to be motivational to everyone.
Select or enter quotes that inspire you to do more. Again, these are quotes that are meaningful to YOU, not ones that others think are great. We'll take care of delivering them to you at opportune moments to keep you engaged.
Plan your day. Week. Month. Your day should not be a random series of events. Nor should you be responding to who screams the loudest. You are here to focus on what you need to get done.
Act. Take action. Right NOW. Do the things you know you need to do. So you can get out the door and do the things you want to do. Like spend time with your kids. or your partner. or your boat.
Track and learn. None of us are perfect. But those of us who measure, observe, and learn will get better. This is how to win.
As a company, we've been building goal-setting and motivational software products since 2004, providing inspiration for thousands of people. We believe there are many aspects of successful goal setting that can't simply be "bolted" onto an existing product, so we designed SalesGoals from the ground up to be different.
A 2011 study showed that less than one-third of employees surveyed were engaged and motivated in their current jobs. That means two out of every three people you meet is just passing the time.
We can all do better.
Additionally, only 18% of those surveyed felt that more money would help them get excited about their positions. The problem isn't money, but rather finding a purpose to make work meaningful.
Just like you, we're business people. We believe in providing a quality service at a fair price. We feel there is a ton of value for each and every contribution level. Nonetheless, we're just getting started and we need your support to succeed. Your contribution will help us complete the project.
And it will also do much more.
In addition to fundraising, we are using this campaign to identify our early adopters. We want excited, engaged users who will help us to spread the word about our product once we launch publicly. We hope you'll consider joining us and add your voice to the process.
We believe that great things start small, and build one success at a time. For our launch, we want to register several hundred small business owners and salespeople who will help us take our software to the next level. We want people who believe that motivation matters.
Furthermore, we hope you'll feel like part of the team, providing feedback about what you like and what you don't, so we can tune and tweak things to get them exactly right in our product
Studies have shown that successful usage of CRM software provides a return on investment of $8.71 for every $1 spent. We're offering an unbeatable price for a great product. You should get back far more than you put in.
Use of funds
Your financial contributions will go directly into making the tool easier to use, as well as adding a few features and minor tweaks. We pay designers, developers, and testers for their services, and your funds will go to the people doing the heavy lifting.
Your feedback and participation, though not required, is also important. Great products are built with the input of actual users, like you!
And one more thing...
If we double our goals, we'll double your rewards.
We want you to succeed; your success is our success. And we want you to tell your friends about us. Every good salesperson knows the value of a referral.
Our Kickstarter target is a modest one, but we need to get the word out in order to succeed. We have just a few days to push our campaign to the world. If you know of someone who might be interested, we hope you'll spread the word today.
Let's chase our goals together.
Risks and challenges
We honestly feel there are only minor risks. Most of the product is done. We already use it ourselves. What we need now is passionate users to help us polish and tune.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
