As you have heard, we are introducing you to this year’s 2012 Ultimate Marketer Finalists who have the opportunity at InfusionCon to get up on stage and demonstrate how they are using Infusionsoft in innovative and creative ways. Let’s meet Luc Stokes of Degree33 Surfboards, which sells custom surfboards online to beginners and intermediate surfers.
Luc and his wife, Holly, started their custom surfboard company back in 2006 as a small part time operation from their little one bedroom apt in San Diego, California. In 11 months, Luc was able to quit his corporate job and work on the business full-time. They grew pretty rapidly but as the economy stumbled their business plateaued. Two years ago, they added Infusionsoft to their marketing efforts and their business has taken off.
Now, their value per visitor has increased dramatically, their monthly promos are wildly successful and they can run their entire business with a handful of employees.
Stokes loves what our sales and marketing software did for his business, “I truly believe that our business would not be what it is today without Infusionsoft. It makes every single one of our prospect and customers feel like they are getting the personal red carpet service they deserve. I am using the API in innovative ways to customize my e-commerce platform so products, prices, payment programs are automatically displayed on my CMS and linked to Infusionsoft’s shopping cart. That was a game-changer for my business, and I am excited about the opportunity to share insights with my fellow entrepreneurs on stage at InfusionCon.
Make sure you get your ticket to InfusioCon 2012 and weigh in on who you think should be the next 2012 Ultimate Marketer.
