Optimize Your Marketing Automation With Infusionsoft CRM and PlusThis

Here's an Unscripted Demo of PlusThis for Infusionsoft

This week the cool peeps at PlusThis were gracious enough to sit down with me for nearly an hour to dive into PlusThis and answer the questions I had about using their platform.

Some of the questions that came up included:

  • What type of marketing do you want to do this year?
    • Evergreen marketing?
    • Facebook marketing?
  • If Infusionsoft is “all-in-one” software, why do I need PlusThis? 
    • No software is truly “all-in-one.” PlusThis can work around the periphery and focus on super-charging your Infusionsoft application.
    • With over 30 features included in PlusThis, and with PlusThis 2.0 coming out soon, it really is a valuable software suite for most users of Infusionsoft.

The first feature I started using for my Whisper Webinar series is their GoToWebinar Connection. 

Their Feature Library includes:

  • Format First Name and Format Last Name
    • Ever wonder why prospects enter their name into your web forms as either all lowercase, i.e. penelope, or all upper case, i.e. PENELOPE?
    • This may not seem like a big deal until you use a mail merge or SMS blast or direct mail push and it says "Hi penelope" or "Hi PENELOPE," instead of just "Hi Penelope."
    • These simple name-formatting errors can crush your inbound marketing efforts because you didn't think through how to correct this common error in lead capture.
    • The Format Fist Name and Formate Last Name features do what they say. It checks for the capitalization of names in the first and last name boxes and corrects the capitalization as needed inside your Infusionsoft, Ontraport, or HubSpot account so your communication style is not "rude" or "LOUD," which could make the difference between a sale or no sale.
  • GoToWebinar Connection
  • Smart Links
  • Easy Check-In
  • SMS Sequences
  • Facebook Audience Triggers
  • Facebook Lead Triggers
  • Page Triggers
  • Email Triggers
  • Video Triggers
  • Send SMS Message
  • Split Test Pages
  • Timeframe Triggers
  • Split Test Emails
  • Math
  • Countdown Timer
  • Format Text Fields
  • Calculate Customer Value
  • File Box Uploader
  • Humanize Infusionsoft Dates
  • Set Field
  • Calculate Time Between Events
  • What's the Date?
  • Split Name
    • I've used this from day one. Prospects often enter their entire name in the "first name" box on your web forms, which doesn't seem like a big deal until you use a mail merge or SMS blast or direct mail push and it says "Hi Jane Smith," instead of just "Hi Jane."
    • The Split name feature does what it says. It checks for the presence of two names in the first name box and moves the last name into the last name field inside your Infusionsoft, Ontraport, or HubSpot account.
  • Set Owner
  • Easy Opt-Out
  • Tag Associated Records
  • Display an Evergreen Date
  • Combine Fields
  • Cycler
  • Gimme and Update Link
  • Make a Note
  • Run an Action Set
  • Video Triggers YouTube Playlists

Automate. Integrate. Dominate.

Around 2012 Infusionsoft retained me to write some copy for them on two of their email sequences and that's when I coined that slogan "Automate. Integrate. Dominate."

That is the key to success in any business. 

And while I built a thriving business that has provided for my family of nine by just using Infusionsoft "right out of the box," I have realized that no software is 100%, totally "all-in-one." 

So look at what you are doing repetitively, repeatedly, and mundanely and figure out how to automate it.

And if you're not sure what can be automated, reach out to folks at companies like PlusThis and ask! 

Since I do a lot of webinars with GoToWebinar, the time savings, insight, and targeted follow-up power PlusThis gives me makes the software worth it on that one feature alone...and they have 29 other features!

So instead of saying "this is another expense...is is worth it?" ask yourself "If I was able to get one extra person to attend my webinar...or my workshop...or call in on time for our meeting...or come back and finish watching my demo video and set an appointment because of it...or create a sense of urgency and get one extra person to buy each week or even each month...would PlusThis be worth it?

Market like you mean it.
Now go sell something.
