I'm Infusionsoft's mad scientist around the visual campaign builder and spend my days creating automated marketing campaigns for the masses. It is literally the most fun I've ever had!.

Tell me if this situation sounds familiar: you go to a live event and meet lots of people. A few of them you actually want to follow up with after the event is over, so you grab their business card or contact information. Then nothing happens. You forget about them entirely, until you discover that business card crinkled at the bottom of your suitcase or laptop bag. (more…)
One concern I hear a lot from entrepreneurs and content creators is, with the increase on the importance of quality and amount of content, how do you monetize it? One of the ways to accomplish this is to offer a free trial alongside with a paid membership to your premium content. Content can be protected with login, which can immediately add value to the information you offer.

If every single person on your email list is also following you on social media, you can stop reading right now and have a great day!

When email marketing was first taking off, the money was all in the list. The bigger the list, the more potential. Today, this is still true; however the money is now in the relationship with the list — a big list doesn’t always bring with it a good relationship. (more…)
If you raised an eyebrow over this title, you should definitely keep reading. Hold on, I know what you’re thinking, “Paul, I don’t see how using a campaign for a coffee run has any value to my business?”
On the surface, you’re correct. However, this campaign actually teaches us a very important lesson about awareness. Plus, this campaign can be used for many more situations than only a coffee run and I’ll get to that further down. (more…)
When it comes to small business marketing tactics, a periodic communication (like a monthly newsletter) is very common. Not only are these types of emails a great way to keep in touch with your company’s tribe, but due to the value of them, they are often forwarded and shared around the web because the content is helpful for your audience.
Some of you have wondered, “Wouldn’t it be cool if I could organically grow my newsletter list when people share those emails?” (more…)
Right now, you are spending time reading this blog post. Maybe you’ll spend a little bit of time, maybe you’ll spend a little more time — especially if you implement the easy strategy I outline below. No matter who you are, you have the same 24 hours in each day just like everyone else. (more…)
Remember back in the day when you first picked up something new? Maybe it was playing an instrument, learning another language or even something simple like origami. Do you remember how hard everything was at first? (more…)
The last quarter of the year is a huge opportunity to achieve big sales numbers and close out strong. Since the whole point of these free monthly campaigns is to help you succeed, I figured October would be the perfect month to release campaigns designed to boost your end-of-year sales!
Hence, I’m excited to announce our latest and greatest free campaign, Convert Sales with 2013 Holiday Promotions. (more…)
Here at Infusionsoft, our whole purpose is very simple, “To help small businesses succeed.” Earlier this year, we took a big step towards making it easier for small businesses to succeed by opening up a bunch of free campaigns in our Marketplace. These marketing blueprints are built using proven tactics and strategies so that way you can feel confident implementing them quickly with minimal effort.
Now that the initial dust on the Marketplace has settled, it is time to start adding more free campaigns at regular intervals and today I’m elated to share the campaign of the month for September 2013, Attract Traffic Using Direct Mail.
