4 ways to automate Keap Max Classic

By Will Harris · February 28, 2023

Keap Max Classic (formerly known as Infusionsoft) is one of the original CRMs. Going on 20+ years now, Keap Max Classic (not to be confused with Keap's Pro or Max plans) is still a great CRM choice—particularly for eCommerce and sales-focused teams.

Keap Max Classic offers plenty of native automation features that help users craft a clean sales funnel. But when you connect it with Zapier, you can sync Keap with the rest of your tech stack and get even more out of this already powerful tool.

Keap Max Classic is a premium app—available on Zapier's paid plans. Learn more about premium apps.

To get started with a Zap template—what we call our pre-made workflows—just click on the button. It only takes a few minutes to set up. You can read more about setting up Zaps here.

Add and update contacts from anywhere

Are you manually downloading lead information to upload into Keap when someone clicks on an online ad or fills out a form? Not only is this process inefficient and unreliable—it's also error-prone.

Managing your leads manually is a big time-waster, and this problem multiplies with the more leads you have. Save time and increase efficiency by automating lead data sharing—building a faster and more scalable lead management program.

From ads

Adding leads from ads to your marketing funnel is an essential step in lead management. After all, advertising is expensive—don't waste any of those important ad dollars. With the Zap below, you can make sure new leads are added to Keap as contacts instantly so you can send them to the next step in your funnel as quickly as possible.

From a form

When reaching out to new leads, it's important to strike while the iron is hot. That is, it's important to reach out while they're still actively engaged. And if someone just filled out your form, now is the time.

Using the automated workflows below, you can create new contacts (or update existing ones) automatically each time someone fills out your form. This way, there's no lag between getting a customer's information and adding it to your CRM.

From a purchase

When a customer makes a purchase, you need to make sure that data is reflected in your CRM. This is how you can create better audience segments and re-market to them more effectively.

With the Zaps below, you can create new contacts for first-time customers or update contacts for existing customers, ensuring your customer data stays up to date.

From events and appointments

If you're using a tool like Zoom to host lead-generating webinars or a tool like Calendly to book appointments with potential customers, you can use automation to make sure none of that lead information gets lost in the shuffle.

From anywhere else

If you're gathering leads using a tool that doesn't have a Zapier integration, that doesn't mean you can't use Zapier to automate your lead management process. Using Webhooks by Zapier, you can still pass your lead information along to Keap by setting up a custom webhook. 

Or, if you have lead information going into a Google Sheet, you can connect that Sheet to Keap to add or update contacts for each new spreadsheet row.

Get notifications for lead activity

The R in CRM is probably the most important letter of all. It stands for relationship, and that relationship is exactly what your CRM is here to help you build with your prospects and customers. Even if you're automating parts of it here and there.

With the Zaps below, you can keep your sales and marketing teams in the know on new lead activity by either sending them a Slack message or an email. This way, your team can act on activity when prospects are engaged, increasing the likelihood that you'll take that relationship to the next level.

Turning them into customers, that is.

Automatically create contracts and proposals

Chasing signatures on proposals or contracts from customers is a pain. If you don't send a document over quickly while a prospect is still engaged, it's likely they'll drag their feet.

With Zapier, you can automate the creation of documents and signature requests in tools like DocuSign or PandaDoc, making sure you get that contract over quickly. Plus, you can update contact information in Keap once a document is signed.

Back up important contact data

One of the best things about using automation is that it eliminates the need to manually reformat and upload data into your CRM—it all just happens in the background.

That said, it can still be a good practice to back up important customer data somewhere in case an accident happens—spreadsheets are a great place to do it. With the workflows below, you can add tagged contacts to a Google Sheet or Airtable—giving yourself a reliable backup on the off chance something happens.

Power up your lead funnel with automation

A CRM is only as good as the data that's in it. By automating how data gets into Keap Max Classic, you can have confidence that leads are being added to Keap quickly—enabling your team to follow up and sell more effectively.
