Announcing JoomFuse Portal is in BETA!

Monday, 06 July 2015 Posted in Automation News, Biz Tech Tips, Company Buzz

It's been a long time coming...

Announcing JoomFuse Portal is in BETA!

We love membership sites, and especially Joomla membership sites. The amazing built-in Access Control List (ACL) functionality in Joomla makes it so easy for a small business owner to offer all kinds of content to members, keeping them happy and close.

In 2013 JoomFuse launched.

That's our app that integrates Joomla with Infusionsoft, giving membership site owners even more flexibility and control. Check out JoomFuse here.

Now we are excited to share that our newest product, JoomFuse Portal, is in BETA and going strong. This add-on to JoomFuse will likely launch this summer. If you want in on the BETA program, contact us for availabililty.

JoomFuse combines the power of Joomla's ACL and Infusionsoft's sales and marketing software to give you absolute control over managing your members and how and when they can access the content you have for them.

JoomFuse Portal makes your members more independent, thus saving you time by allowing them controlled access to their account. You have control, they have independence. It's a win-win.

Here's the details...

Why Email Open Rates Are A Crappy Metric

Why Email Open Rates Are A Crappy Metric

For years now, anyone of my marketing coaching or Infusionsoft clients who asked me about open rates of their Infusionsoft emails (or emails in general), I have said something along the lines of: "Open rates are very unreliable....if it says that the email was opened, then it was, but if it says it was unopened, you have no idea if it was opened or not."

On top of that, many email clients (Outlook and Apple Mail for example) are configured to have a preview list on one side of the window and the email itself on the other. If you use your arrow keys to move up and down the preview list, then as you pass emails, they become "read"....you know that you haven't read them....you are passing them so you can get to the latest comment on your cat video Facebook post. But all the ones you scrolled through will be reported back as read.

What is Joomla?

We are super excited to announce another video in our collection for you! This one demystifies Joomla!™, the popular global CMS (content management system) for building robust business websites.

In March 2015, Dom co-presented with Sarah Watz, President of Open Source Matters Inc., the nonprofit organization that supports the Joomla! project which is completely run by volunteers. The webinar was originally presented for Infusionsoft Certified Partners but there is plenty of value there for the small business owner or marketing consultant.
