InfusionCon- 2009 Infusionsoft user Conference
March 10-12th Infusionsoft users gathered in Scottsdale, AZ to learn more about how to effectively grow their small businesses. It was an unbelievably valuable event. Roughly 650 small business owners gathered to learn and share techniques which allowed 20% of them to double their sales in 2008.
I sincerely hope your competitors were not in attendance because you are in trouble if them implement a few of these techniques.
Every business owner I spoke with thought the event was motivating, fantastic and they were going back home with ideas to implement to grow their business. Clate Maske challenged everyone to immediately start implementing improvement.

Dan Kennedy Press Release: Fix Your Follow-up Failure
Following the Leader
Marketing pro Dan Kennedy and Infusionsoft offer marketing advice for small businesses.
By Lauren McKay Posted Aug 8, 2008 From DESTINATION CRM
“Everybody shows up once,” offers Dan Kennedy, author, marketing guru, and presenter at New York’s Infusionsoft marketing event, “Fix Your Follow-Up” tour. Kennedy took to the stage in four cities over four short days, instructing audiences that contacting customers once is not enough -- in fact, the absence or inadequacy of the follow-up is the biggest expense a company will face, he says. Kennedy shares some of his marketing secrets, all of which he says wouldn’t be possible without Infusionsoft’s marketing automation software. Infusionsoft sponsored the event and the company’s CEO and president articulated his vision for true small businesses and entrepreneurs.
“All businesses have some success at sticking to the operations system,” Kennedy says. “Hardly anyone has a marketing system. Most people have random erratic acts and because they don’t have a system, they can’t do good follow-up.” Kennedy, an author of 13 books and a marketing coach for many high-level companies, provides that the average customer is susceptible to 13,412 marketing messages per 24-hour cycle. To prove his point about the importance of following up, Kennedy shares details of a home-grown experiment he conducted after buying a new house. When home mortgage postcards and mailings began to flood his mailbox, Kennedy laid all of the printed flyers, postcards, and letters onto two large tables. By the end of an eight-week period, the two tables were covered end to end with home mortgage mailings from different companies. However, only in two cases, did a company send more than one mailing and in only one case, did he have three postcards from the same company. “Everybody shows up once,” he reiterates, emphasizing the point of making and keeping contact with leads.
“Trust is built with a certain number of contacts, conversations, communications, and showing up a certain number of times,” Kennedy says. Building trust leads to closing sales – something that just can not be done with one measly postcard mailing. Kennedy offers some of the reasons why companies may not follow up with prospects. One of which is due to manual headaches and overall business complications. However, he advises, the more complicated the marketing system, the better."
