Saelos CRM: A Technical Advantage

One of my greatest undertakings of this past year has been the development and subsequent release of the Saelos CRM (still in beta of course!). I was able to use my knowledge and experience gained from Mautic (a world-class marketing automation platform) to create a complementary platform for relationship management. I expect if you’re reading this you’ve probably already read the original announcement post (if not, go check that out before continuing). Otherwise, let’s take a few moments to explore what an open CRM looks like and what it means for the future. Continue reading Saelos CRM: A Technical Advantage

Announcing Saelos Beta

Introducing Saelos Open Source CRM

Wow. I’m a little in shock that this day has finally arrived. It feels like months and months and months in the making. (Probably because it has been). And I couldn’t be happier with the result. What I want to share with you today is the result of untold nights and weekends. Long days and quite literally thousands of hours of time. I’ve talked about it before, but time is our most valuable asset. We can’t buy, beg, borrow, or steal more of it. As a result there’s nothing that costs more than time. With that thought in mind, what I am about to share with you is a gift. A gift of my time. It will cost you nothing. I give it to you completely for free. But wait, before you think that’s the end of the story. Let me stop you and share with you something I believe is even greater than a free CRM. This gift I’m giving you, the one comprised of my countless hours of time I will never get back – this gift is more than just free. It’s open. Continue reading Announcing Saelos Beta

Sunday Saelos Update

Since it’s my weekend project and since today is Sunday I feel it’s an appropriate time to publish a quick update on Saelos. I’ve done the unthinkable. In the world of software development and releases some might say I’ve done the unimaginable. I announced a release date. That’s right, in case you missed my previous blog post (catch up here), I have announced a date when I’d be releasing my passion project Saelos. Continue reading Sunday Saelos Update

Market Smarter Not Harder

I think a lot about what’s coming next in the world. I focus a good bit of that time on the area where I spend most of my waking time – Mautic and marketing automation. When I set out to create Mautic I wanted to create a marketing automation platform that had never been seen before. I wanted to give the world the tools and the power of a platform that not only excelled in feature and functionality compared to existing proprietary products but also did so in a revolutionary way. Continue reading Market Smarter Not Harder

Introducing Saelos: A Personal Project

Some of you may have noticed that it’s been a little while since I posted a longer piece on my blog. That’s not because I haven’t wanted to but because of some other things I’ve been pouring every spare second into. Literally every spare second. We won’t get into a discussion on the topic of sleep habits (maybe I’ll come back to that one – it’s interesting) but suffice it to say, the time I’ve spent has been all-consuming. Continue reading Introducing Saelos: A Personal Project

Blockchain Bonanza or Bitcoin Bubble

I didn’t post anything in 2017 about the concept of blockchain and I’ve been diligent in not posting anything so far in 2018. Now I’m finally going to break my self-imposed silence. I’m choosing to now because it seems that the initial craze has worn off a bit and thing are finally starting to normalize. (At least that’s the impression I’ve gotten in recent days/weeks). Sure there’s still plenty of news and publicity surrounding the technology and there’s the occasional doomsday post but the rabid chatter that the everyday individual engaged in seems to have faded. Continue reading Blockchain Bonanza or Bitcoin Bubble

The MIRROR 2017

Well recently I wrote about my New Year’s Resolutions and I admit my post was a bit of tongue-in-cheek and felt it only fair to share something with a bit more substance. I figured the best way to do this was to share something meaningful which I spent a significant amount of time writing. This was meant for internal use only but in the interest of openness and transparency I’m going to share with the community.
