Best Platform Design: Cannabiz Media
Sales and marketing are critical aspects of growing a business, but Cannabiz Media’s License Database goes further than any other customer relationship management platform to meet these goals for cannabis businesses.
The License database is a one-stop, easy-to-use platform for managing customer contacts, data analysis and marketing – and it was designed specifically to address the unique business development needs of the cannabis industry.
While standard CRM platforms typically require users to input their own leads, each Cannabiz Media License Database account comes with access to leads and advanced tools needed access verifiable license holders.
A unique set of criteria allows users to intuitively identify their ideal target audience. From there, a built-in email platform can send both direct, one-on-one emails or design-optimized email marketing campaigns. These components transform the database into a one-stop-shop for lead generation, sales and marketing combined.
Outside of sales and marketing initiatives, Cannabiz Media’s License Database also provides market data to financial analysts, legal counsel, state regulators and journalists researching cannabis market data and businesses.
The company also launched Cannabiz Intelligence, a C-Suite tool that allows users to track multistate operators and transactional history. Users can simulate merger and acquisition deals, enabling comprehensive analysis for M&A target identification and tracking the overall growth of the industry.
