Email Marketing Platform
Infusionsoft is best known as an email tool. It can certainly send emails, to the tune of 1 billion a year or so. However, it’s much more than that. It also serves to organize your database, process orders online, and automate internal workflows. Here’s a quick video on where Infusionsoft fits.
Built to Scale
Infusionsoft is built for small businesses. The beauty of a tool like this is that it will grow as your business does. Automation works 24 hours a day, all year long. It allows you to scale in brand new ways. The more you automate, the more you can focus on the parts of your business that really need you.
Drag & Drop Builder
Infusionsoft uses a drag and drop interface to build your marketing collateral. This means you can visually map out your marketing funnel, as well as your emails, web forms, and landing pages. Frank Kern once described the Infusionsoft campaign builder as “a white board that spits out money.”

Frequently Asked Questions
Does it work?
Yes. Marketing Automation works. I’ve seen it time and time again. Not everyone is ready to buy at the same time, and it’s not feasible for you to spend all your time calling back customers and answering emails. If you build a system that does this for you, you can rest easier knowing that your leads are being nurtured for you, and aren’t slipping between the cracks.
Who is Infusionsoft for?
Infusionsoft is for small businesses. The ideal fit is businesses who are 1-15 employees, over 100K in revenue, and are looking to grow. If you’re experiencing difficulty because you have too many systems, because you’re short on time, or because your leads are growing stale or slipping between the cracks, then Infusionsoft might be a good fit.
We’ve seen all sorts of business models- from estate planners, dentists and lawyers, to authors, coaches and speakers, even to small sales organizations and local service providers like exterminators and commercial cleaning companies, it can meet the needs of a lot of different business models.
The common denominator is people who are maxed out, and are looking to use automation to save time, organize, and grow sales.
Is learning Infusionsoft difficult?
Infusionsoft is a robust system that can do a lot of different things. It’s built for small businesses, and small businesses are complex. I’d be lying if we said there wasn’t a learning curve. But I’d also be lying if I said that it wasn’t worth it.
I believe firmly in the power of automation. Infusionsoft is one tool that provides that. Even if you decide Infusionsoft isn’t right for you, you should find a way to automate the things that aren’t the best use of your time so you can focus on the things that are.
How does it work?
Well, it’s different for every business. But the idea is this: You create the experience you’d like your prospects and customers to have, bottle it, and then serve it up time and time again.
