However, they bring the WordPress experience to the Salesforce CRM and offer basic functionality, for example customizing the order and appearance of information fields in the Salesforce data repository.

Paid applications

There are some applications that you can buy to integrate these systems together. They offer much more capability than the freely available ones.

There are literally millions of users on the Internet at any one time. You can have a few hundred visiting your website every day. After harnessing all this WordPress information, a business can leverage it and use it to create better relationships with their customers and even acquire new ones.

Conclusion

Integration between WordPress CMS and the Salesforce CRM is a very powerful tool for a business. WordPress is able to collect substantial information about potential customers and Salesforce can use this information to promote the success of a business.
