If I’ve gotten your attention and you are reading this, you might be considering making an infusionsoft purchase. Or, you might be just getting started with infuionsoft and wondering OMG what do I do now?!
I love infusionsoft, I think it is one of the most powerful marketing and automation tools available to business owners. It handles pretty much everything you need from ecommerce to CRM to marketing.
Like any great tool – it works best if you know how to use it properly.
When getting started with Infusionsoft, it can be daunting due to all the complex and cool marketing tools it offers you, especially if you haven’t been using something like infusionsoft before.
If you are one of those who is just getting started with infusionsoft, I want you to get off on the right foot and make sure you’ve got all of your bases covered.
Here are three things when getting started with Infusionsoft to keep in mind:
1. Work with someone who knows infusionsoft…
When you made your purchase, you get a success consultant to help you out when you were getting started with infusionsoft – use them! I have had the pleasure of working with these success consultants while helping clients get infusionsoft set up.
When you get a great consultant, it makes things so much easier during implementation and set up.
But…what happens when your consultant is done?
I find people run into trouble after the infusionsoft consultant has completed initial training and implementation.I work with many infusionsoft owners who took the initial training and implementation and only to let their application languish after the implementation period was over. Why does this happen? Many of them have great ideas of how they want to use infusionsoft but don’t have the skills to bring their vision to life.
Having an infusionsoft strategist and consultant on your team makes absolute sense when you are comitted to building your business to multiple 6 figures and beyond. Need help getting started with Infusionsoft or want to pick my brain? Set up a time to chat with me right here…
