Amp up Your Infusionsoft App

After using Infusionsoft for awhile, you’ll soon learn that to make the most out of the application you’ll need some additional tools. Below are just a few of the add-ons that the Smart to Finish Team recommend and can set-up for you too!

Graphly

If you need better reporting and quality business metrics, this app is for you. By adding Graphly to Infusionsoft you’ll be able to make better decisions for your business. Here are just some of the reports available:

  • Value reports: You can determine how much your new buyers spend and how much you spent to acquire them. You can use this data to ensure you’re getting the right new customers, the right way.
  • Lead source: You can see which lead sources generated sales of a particular product and/or view the net income of each lead source. This will help you determine where to spend your time (and money!) marketing.
  • Campaign email stats: Easily see the opens, clicks and conversions for every email in a campaign. How nice would it be to see at-a-glance what emails are really driving your conversions?

Imagine having your Infusionsoft dashboard look like this:

Slow summer? Tune Up Your Infusionsoft

It’s that time again – the Summer slow down. Many entrepreneurs experience a business slump as their communities take time to relax and vacation with families. It’s tempting to join the lazy days of Summer but now is the perfect time to get your business ready for the busy season right around the corner. Use this time to plan your future launches, tighten your business processes and cleanup your systems. If you’re an Infusionsoft user, it’s the perfect time to tune-up your application so it’s running smoothly and working hard for you so you don’t have to! Take time to perform these 5 tasks so you’ll finish the year strong:

1. Organize Tags

The beauty of Infusionsoft is that it allows you to create as many tags as you want so that you can properly segment your list. The bad thing is that you have most likely created a TON of tags and some you may not even remember why you created them at all! Take time to run a report of all your tags and their categories. Go through the list and delete what you aren’t using. CAUTION: tags can control automation in your application; so don’t delete a tag unless you’re sure it’s not being used to trigger something. The Smart to Finish Team can review and clean-up your tags, perform this task regularly so it’s not a big job and better yet, set-up a tagging structure so your tags are always organized!

2. Update Legacy Items

If you have old follow-up sequences, web forms, and/or campaigns, take time to put those into the new campaign builder. That way your emails will be mobile-ready and you can use new features to further automate your systems. If you want to enjoy your Summer, the Smart to Finish Team can create these updated campaigns for you while you lounge by the pool!

Four Ways To Use Webinars To Grow Your Business

These days, companies are finally starting to see the benefits of using webinars to grow their small business. Not only can webinars be used to generate revenue for themselves, but they can also increase awareness, minimize costs, and build trust with their audience. Below we’ve included four simple things you can do to get the most out of your webinars.

1. Build Brand Awareness & Trust

One of the best ways to build trust and show the real value of your company is to use live video in webinars. While content is great, it’s often one-sided. Webinars allow your customers to get engaged in the conversation live – giving them the opportunity to build rapoir and trust with your company.

2. Grow & Clean Your Mailing List

One of the most simple ways to grow your mailing list is to host a webinar. You can create new mailing lists from those who attended your webinars. If they attended a webinar of yours, they are more likely to engage in follow up content you send via email, making these mailing lists more responsive.

3. Increase Conversions On High Ticket Items

Using webinars to sell big ticket items has been proven to be extremely effective. During webinars, customers are given a chance to get to know you and your company. Building this relationship before asking them to spend a lot of money with your company will ultimately give you a better chance of selling them down the road.

4. Co-Host & Interview Authority Experts

A great way to become an expert in your field and draw in potential clients is to co-host and interview other authority experts in your field. You could do this at a sponsored event as noted in our 5 Simple Networking tips for Small Businesses, or turn it into a virtual webinar. You could even stream your live event, so those who are not in your area can join as well.
