Highlights from the 2013 Ultimate Marketer Contest
Infusionsoft handed out the Ultimate Marketer title to a customer that demonstrated exceptional sales and marketing ability and overall business results using the Infusionsoft all-in-one sales and marketing system. In 2008, Casey Graham, founder of The Rocket Company, was struggling to keep his dream alive. Its mission is simple—to help churches succeed. With little money in the bank, Graham began using Infusionsoft to help with the company's sales and marketing processes. In just two years, business more than quadrupled. The Rocket Company uses every Infusionsoft feature to attract interest, capture leads, nurture prospects, convert sales and upsell customers. It also uses Infusionsoft membership site software, CustomerHub, to further nurture and convert leads.
"We watched the stories of former Ultimate Marketers and dreamed that our company could realize that kind of success while still allowing for a life outside of work," says Graham. "We absorbed every best practice shared by Infusionsoft and dove right into the software. We could not have achieved this level of business and personal success without Infusionsoft, and we are so honored to have this title of Ultimate Marketer."The Rocket Company shared its success story on stage along with the other two finalists. The more than 2,000 InfusionCon attendees voted for their favorite finalist via a Facebook voting app powered by GroSocial by Infusionsoft. The two runners-up to the title of Ultimate Marketer include:
