If you’re already a Zen Planner and Infusionsoft customer, you’re likely pretty excited about the partnership of our two companies. If you’re not familiar with Infusionsoft, you should know that they are the leader in small business marketing. And now with Zen Planner integrated with Infusionsoft, both solutions are a heck of a lot more powerful. If you’re wondering if Infusionsoft is the right fit for you, consider the following:
1). Marketing Budget
How much do you set aside for marketing each month? What amount of new revenue do you need to justify your marketing costs? Hopefully you know the answers to both of these questions or employ someone who does. Infusionsoft offers a robust reporting engine that shows you which messages produce the best results. This means that tracking the return on your investment is easy. Infusionsoft does come with a monthly subscription cost, but offers tremendous bang for your buck when you look at the results it can produce. Knowing how Infusionsoft fits with your marketing budget is the first step.
2). Target Customer Segmentation
If you have a segmented customer base that you’d like to provide with personalized messaging, then you will benefit from Infusionsoft’s automation and reporting depth. Targeting your campaigns – based on age, interest, or anything else you’d like to track – will allow you to reach the right customer with the right information at the right time. This gives you the opportunity to convert more leads and retain more customers, and leads to increased revenue. Tracking the success of these campaigns gives you the data you need to make informed decisions when adjusting your marketing strategy.
3). Employable Consultants and Sample Campaigns
Do you need help setting up a solid marketing program? Infusionsoft has an entire marketplace filled with expert consultants who are willing to offer up their own campaign templates, along with coaching, to ensure that your marketing is successful. These consultants belong to a network of resources that Infusionsoft provides as part of its platform, and they make outsourcing your marketing a breeze for small businesses.

What Does Infusionsoft Offer that Zen Planner Doesn’t?

- Full Reporting and Analytics – Zen Planner provides basic information for each email you send though the software (opens, bounces, unsubscribes), while Infusionsoft allows you to spot trends and assign value to certain actions for entire campaigns.
- Prospect Score Tracking – Scoring your leads automatically based on their attributes and actions means that you can focus on high-value targets first.
