Entrepreneurial Small Businesses Can Now Practice Excellent Follow-up Marketing from within their E-mail Client
Gilbert, Ariz. - April 22, 2009 - Infusionsoft, the leader in marketing automation software for growth-oriented entrepreneurs and small businesses, today announced that its flagship Web-based solution now integrates with Microsoft's Outlook e-mail program. The integration will allow entrepreneurs and small businesses to dramatically boost productivity and save valuable time by seamlessly integrating their existing Outlook account with Infusionsoft to easily follow up with customers and prospects to accelerate growth.
?Adding more daily functionality like this just makes all the difference in saving me time and money,? said Sean Greeley of Net Profit Explosion. ?I?d estimate that not having to go look up e-mail addresses in Infusionsoft, and then send them from Infusionsoft or Outlook, saves us 15 min per day times five days per week, equal to 1.25 hours per week, which equals five hours per month and 60 hours per year!?
?I continue to be deeply satisfied with my integration experience,? said Philippa Kennealy of The Entrepreneurial MD. ?I figure it's saving me many minutes a day because I no longer have to go back and forth and paste content between the two. I now can do it all centrally, while knowing that all my client communications are in one place and available on the Web.?
