Infusionsoft today revealed a new platform built to empower millions of small businesses worldwide to create order in a new world where customers have more choices and expect personalized service. The platform retains its trademark power but is now easier to use, with lower pricing and a free trial to make Infusionsoft accessible to millions more small businesses.
With a redesigned interface and more than 50 industry-specific templates, Infusionsoft users can implement marketing strategies proven-to-work for thousands of small businesses just like them. It is easy for small businesses to connect Infusionsoft to the other apps they rely on every day, with more than 1,000 integrations available now. Small businesses save time and increase productivity by having all their customer information and interactions in one place—Infusionsoft.
During two years of intensive customer and market research, Infusionsoft found 70 percent of small businesses want to quit the hodgepodge of tools they use to manage the growing demands of today’s customers. According to this research, 70 percent of small businesses also think customers are more demanding today than in the past, and 80 percent say customers expect small businesses to be available around the clock, online and by phone.
“Going belly to belly with thousands of small businesses the last 15 years taught us that growth brings new challenges, and that simple jobs become hard and time-consuming when you have a hodgepodge of tools with lead and customer information scattered everywhere,” said Infusionsoft CEO Clate Mask. “While other tools are for hotshot marketers, the new Infusionsoft platform is built for the everyday small business who needs help organizing customer information, so work doesn’t slip through the cracks and they can keep delivering personalized service even as they grow.”
Small businesses who started recently using Infusionsoft are raving about the easy, new interface and the industry-specific templates designed to reduce the time it takes to create emails and landing pages for targeted marketing.
"It was intuitive and just right for the stage of growth I’m in,” said Neil Gowans, owner of Obvi-us. “I’m just starting out so every lead and customer relationship is gold. I want my customers to feel like I’m following up personally every time, and that I’m always there when they need me. Infusionsoft is the best for that.”
“I love all the pre-built templates available for new users or even someone who isn’t an expert at marketing like so many of the small business clients I serve,” said James Shi, BridgeChoice Consulting. “I started with a template that was recommended to me because of my industry when I first logged into Infusionsoft, and right away it helped me see how it can all work together.”
Other new benefits Infusionsoft is bringing to small businesses include:
- A brand new visual sales pipeline makes it easy to create a customizable sales process, with 75 percent of users today saying Infusionsoft helps them close more business
- A redesigned mobile experience helps small businesses be productive while on the go, with 89 percent of users reporting that Infusionsoft helps them run their business more efficiently
- 90 percent of Infusionsoft Payments users report they get paid faster now, and newly-redesigned invoices help them look professional to customers
- All customers have access to on-demand marketing coaches and 1,500 Infusionsoft partners with specialized expertise for any industry
The Infusionsoft platform is available to all new customers now and will be available to current customers in Summer 2018.
