Gilbert, Ariz. (March 10, 2011) Infusionsoft, the leading marketing automation software used by thousands of small businesses, today announced the three finalists competing for the 2011 Infusionsoft Ultimate Marketer title. The annual contest recognizes users for creative customer and prospect marketing campaigns they deployed using the Infusionsoft marketing automation application. After reviewing nearly 30 submissions, Infusionsoft’s panel of judges selected three finalists to present at the InfusionCon user conference on March 23.
The three finalists include:
- Jermaine Griggs of Hear and Play Music
- Janette Gleason of Gleason Tax Advisory Group, LLC
- Andy Mackensen and Sean Kelly of H.U.M.A.N. Healthy Vending
Users will give a 30-minute presentation on the second day of the conference to tell their success story and share with attendees how Infusionsoft helped their business increase sales and revenue, build better relationships with customers, save time and money. The three finalists will compete for a $6,000 dream vacation and the ultimate bragging rights. The two runner ups will receive a $1,000 travel voucher. Voting will be done online at InfusionCon and the winner will be announced on the last day of the conference, March 24th.
"I had never experienced that kind of excitement," said the 2010 Ultimate Marketer Bob Britton, owner of Professional Auto Care Inc. "Even if I hadn't won, it still would have been a truly life-changing experience. It was an incredible ride to enter the contest, do the presentation as a finalist and ultimately win the contest."
What the 2011 finalists are saying about Infusionsoft
"Our clients are so grateful for the educational e-mails, webinars and workshops we provide, said Janette Gleason, director of marketing, Gleason Tax Advisory. "As far as our prospects, they come to us when they're ready. Gleason Tax has gone from 0-to-60 within just 30 days of implementing the Perfect Client Lifecycle."
"Infusionsoft allows us to market to our prospects and customers as if we have a 20- person marketing team, when we really only have two people," said Andy Mackensen, managing partner, H.U.M.A.N Healthy Vending.

"Customer value doubled from about $160 to over $300 largely because of improved customer relationship management," said Jermaine Griggs, owner, Hear and Play Music.
