What is a ‘Tag’ In Zoho CRM?

In Zoho CRM, a tag is a descriptive label that you can assign to records such as contacts, leads, accounts, deals, and more. Tags are used to categorise and organise your data based on specific criteria, attributes, or characteristics. They help you group records together for easy retrieval, segmentation, and analysis. Each tag typically represents a specific attribute, status, or category associated with a record.

Tag management in Zoho CRM offers various practical applications that can significantly enhance your workflow and organisation. Here are some practical applications for using tags in Zoho CRM:

Segmentation and TargetingTags allow you to categorise your contacts, leads, accounts, and deals based on specific criteria. This segmentation enables you to target specific groups for marketing campaigns, follow-ups, or communication tailored to their interests or needs.
Status TrackingYou can use tags to track the status of leads or deals. For instance, you might have tags like “Cold Lead,” “Hot Lead,” “Negotiation,” “Closed-Won,” etc., to keep tabs on the progress of each lead or deal.
Event or Campaign TrackingTags help you monitor contacts that have participated in specific events, webinars, or campaigns. This information can guide your future outreach and engagement strategies.
Customer ProfilesTags can be used to create detailed customer profiles. For example, you might have tags that indicate the industry, company size, or specific interests of each contact, allowing your team to tailor their interactions accordingly.
Product InterestsIf your business offers multiple products or services, you can use tags to indicate which products or services each contact is interested in. This can help in providing personalised recommendations and offers.
Lead Source TrackingTags can indicate the source from which leads were generated, such as “Website Form,” “Social Media,” “Referral,” etc. This information helps in analysing the effectiveness of different lead generation channels.
Follow-Up RemindersTags can serve as reminders for follow-up actions. For instance, you can use a “Follow-Up” tag to indicate contacts that need a follow-up call or email.
Custom Workflow StagesCreate custom tags that represent various stages of your sales or customer engagement process. This allows you to easily move contacts through different stages and track their progress.
