It's easy for a small business to get overwhelmed by the sheer number of apps and tools available for every aspect of a business. You have customer relationship management (CRM) systems where leads and notes live; sales automation tools to move leads from one stage to another; email marketing tools for newsletters and campaigns—and on and on.

But the savviest small business owners know you can use all-in-one marketing and sales automation tool Infusionsoft by Keap with app automator Zapier to cut costs and reduce the time it takes to manage the whole process.

Here's how a few of Zapier's users combine Infusionsoft's features with our library of over 1,400 apps to make their work more efficient and their days more productive.

Create Infusionsoft Contacts from Form Entries

"Zapier unlocked functionality that would have otherwise been cost-prohibitive: merging Typeform responses with the appropriate Infusionsoft user records so we can keep track of client feedback."Dan Russell, Lead Strategist, Synduit

Companies and products alike grow through feedback. Synduit, a content and virtual marketing company, actively seeks out feedback from their clients to make sure the content they produce—as well as their other offerings—meet and surpass expectations, and to see if there's any room for improvement.

In order to keep track of which client gave what feedback, the team at Synduit uses Infusionsoft. In Infusionsoft, they collect clients, tag them, and trigger certain workflows depending on that tag.

To collect feedback, they use Typeform, sending forms to their clients as needed. When a client submits a response, a Zap, which is an automated workflow powered by Zapier, automatically runs, searching Infusionsoft for the client—and creating one when it doesn't exist—and adding the feedback to their record.

Over at Project Warrior, a fitness program based in the UK, founder Kyle Genner also uses Infusionsoft to manage his contacts, new and old. He uses a Wufoo form to schedule consultations with potential clients:

"Once the client completes the application in Wufoo, Zapier creates the contact in Infusionsoft and applies a 'hot lead' tag to it," he explains. He uses another Zap to send a text to the client, where they can book a call. If they don't? Infusionsoft comes into play again: "If they don't book a call, they're then sent a series of follow-up emails via Infusionsoft."

With a little automation, Kyle ensures every lead either books a consultation or gets a few emails, just to be safe.

For product engineering consultation firm YP3 Solutions, using resources and tools that are the best-in-class comes naturally: They seek out the best tools to aid their clients' R&D departments and engineering needs.

YP3 Solutions builds completely customizable web forms with Formsite.When the team gets a response, Zapier sends it to Infusionsoft, creating a contact. Zapier will also add a tag to the contact in Infusionsoft, which triggers one of the workflows they've built within Infusionsoft.

"It would be a full-time job managing all of the data to keep several campaigns going at once," says Jeremiah Harrison, digital marketing specialist. Instead of a person manually transferring information, this one Zap does it all, saving people power for the important work of assisting clients.

Automatically Manage Leads

Getting new leads is a lot like adopting a bundle of kittens: Fun at first—but as more start showing up, the effort and time to manage increases at an exponential rate. So, why not take the manual out of lead management, like New Meta does?

New Meta uses Zapier to send new leads from Facebook into Infusionsoft once a lead finishes filling out the Facebook lead ad form.

Now that these new leads exist, why not share the good news with the rest of the team? With these Zaps, you can instantly notify your team or an individual in Slack. It's an easy, trackable way to maintain a feed of new leads in Slack, where anyone can come in and see the funnel at work.

These are also an easy way to celebrate wins: When sharing in Slack or via email, add in a celebratory gif or emoji (or three). Sharing leads doesn't just have to be about the numbers—it's good for the company morale, too.

Jeremiah at YP3 Solutions uses another straightforward integration between Infusionsoft and online scheduler Calendly to make sure new leads know when their appointment is approaching.

He explains it best: "I use Zapier to take date and times from the Calendly app, load them into custom fields in Infusionsoft, and then send reminders from Infusionsoft field timers counting down to the appointment with unique, personalized emails."

It's a great way to ensure your lead doesn't forget the meeting, which always increases your chances of closing a deal.
