It turns out we are keeping Fusetastic after all. A change of heart at Infusionsoft has allowed us to keep our old name, for better or worse. Thanks for your support, and we look forward to seeing you at Infusioncon 2012 in just a few short days. If you ordered one of our Fusetastic t-shirts, don't forget to check your email, twitter, etc. for the time and place to pick up your shirts. See 'ya there!
Here at Fusetastic (soon to be Wiztastic,) we always try to go the extra mile with our customers. This year, we want to go even further, and give you the shirt off our own backs! Last year at InfusionCon, many of you were jealous of our cool t-shirts. So this year, we're giving you--our fellow fanatics and friends-- the opportunity to join in the fun. If you want one of our free t-shirts, request one below, and we'll have it ready for you at InfusionCon. For some extra fun, if one of our
Fusetastic is a name we are soon to retire. While we are sad to say farewell to a name that has served us well, we are excited to welcome our new name . . . Re-branding has taught us some fun little gems of knowledge. Perhaps you can learn something from our experience. . . . .
You may have heard that Infusionsoft has recently updated their trademark policy. Many service providers, including us, have to change our names to stay in compliance. Sure, we already have some ideas up our sleeves. But we wanted a way to connect with the brainpower of other intelligent people out there. So we thought, "Why not crowdsource to our own customers?" So here's your chance. Be immortalized at our company and name us. Give us a new identity.
Day 1: Circa 11 p.m. as things were winding down $10,000 bucks for two days of work on your business. Most small businesses I know would shy away from spending 10k for two days of consulting on their business. After all, that's a pretty big investment and commitment. If you would have asked me before Infusionsoft's 48 Hour Implementation Accelerator Event held last week, will you get your money's worth? I would have responded, "Probably not." While I was sure it would be helpful, no way it
Ever had an "Oops moment?" You know, the kind of thing that makes you cringe? Cower in shame? Hopelessly relent? RadioLab (one of my favorite NPR shows/podcasts) devoted a whole episode to "Oops" moments. . . . stories of unintended consequences. . . . and the making of the Unabomber. (Now that's a big Oops.) Most recently, I was humbled by an Oops moment while attending the Infusionsoft Customer Tour in Dallas.
I suppose it's OK to toot your own horn if it's good news you want to share. And so . . . here we are, tooting our own horn because we have good news to celebrate! (Drum roll, please. . . .) Fusetastic is now official. We are Infusionsoft Certified Consultants! (This is Infusionsoft's new program, replacing what used to be called CMAC or Infusionsoft Certified Marketing Automation Coach). While we have had over 3 years experience from the outside looking in, (and often breaking Infusionsoft
Congratulations to Ryan Hartman, Fusetastic's iPad 2 Giveaway winner. He was pretty stoked when we notified him the other day. When April 1st came up, we sat there moaning, "Who is going to print out all those entries and put them into a hat for the drawing?" Being techy, we knew the paper-in-the-hat wasn't going to happen, and so we thought maybe we should integrate a computer algorithm to randomly select the winner. But even that seemed boring. Then it hit us: We're Infusionsoft experts!
Here's a behind-the-scenes look at our iPad2 Giveaway, and how you can easily do a giveaway powered-up with Infusionsoft, too. But first . . . why giveaways? Because they work! A giveaway is a powerful magnet, giving your leads immediate gratification (i.e. the dream of winning a new iPad2) at very little cost and inconvenience to them (the time it takes to register.) We started off wanting to simply capture leads that were coming to our website. We were getting a fair share of traffic from
