Category Archives: Infusionsoft Reviews
In this Infusionsoft review video, I will show you the huge difference in what you are capable of doing with Infusionsoft, versus what you are capable of doing with CloudNet360 in terms of setting up your eCommerce platform to sell your products or services.
With less capability and far more confusion, Infusionsoft is clearly miles behind Cloudnet360 when it comes to choice the right business automation tool.
In this Cloudnet360 vs Infusionsoft video, I just want to show you some of the pervasive confusion that takes place in the Infusionsoft system or, in this case it is just a matter of being very inconvenient on top of confusion.
So, one of the things everyone wants to do all the time when running a business is to check the orders. Now Watch our Infusionsoft Comparison video and find out the contrasting nature of two system i.e Cloudnet360 and Infusionsoft.
In a nutshell, the more we are digging in the more it is becoming evident why people like to call “infusionsoft” as “Confusionsoft”.
In this Infusionsoft Comparison video I am showing you how with a slow, confusing CRM dashboard Infusionsoft is most hyped CRM in the market, thanks to their huge army of affiliates and marketing budget. Just a simple comparison video on CRM dashboard between Cloudnet360 and Infusionsoft is more than enough to prove this hype false.
In CloudNet360, with our philosophy of creating a point and click based easy to use business automation system we are continuously updating ourselves to meet this goal while assuring you a 99.9% stable system so that we can provide you a usable way of managing your business and helping you sell more faster.
In this Infusionsoft vs CloudNet360 comparison video, I will show you why infusionsoft is very confusing while trying to set up your affiliate campaign or program. And on the contrary, you will find CloudNet360 platform is very easy to navigate and set up your affiliate campaign.
One more reason why our philosophy of making a user-friendly, easy to navigate and simple yet complete business automation software made CloudNet360 the Best Small Business Automation available in the market.
**Webinar Recording** Product Jam – 15-Minute Membership Site
The Webinar is done, recorded, and “in the can”…
I could tell whether Marty & Gary hit the mission goals, but what would be the fun in that?
Some frequently asked questions along with their answers, during The Webinar Jam Session, has been listed below:
Q: Does this member ship software have a timed release of content so I can keep my members in my program longer? For example, can I time the content so each week the members get to view 1 new video?
Ans: Yes, it does exactly what you’re talking about and more since you can have a timed release (drip feed) set for each membership level. So Gold members may receive the content faster than Silver members or you can set them to all drip out at the same rate.
Q: This looks easy. Lets me focus on the content instead of wasting all my time building a website. I hope this is truly point and click simple like you claim.
Ans: Yes it is. The most difficult part of building the Membership Site is selecting what graphics to use in your design and, of course, content creation.
Q: I don’t like systems where I don’t have access to the source code so I can add my own code and customize things with my own hand written script. You didn’t talk about custom coding so I assume this system is not compatible with custom code. If I’m wrong, tell me how I do it and what language I need to use.
Ans: We did not cover the advanced CSS sections because most people want to “keep it simple”, create their branding, and then focus on the content and sales.The system has been optimized for “courseware” and if you’re using it for this purpose, you’ll love it but using it for other purposes can create a “square peg” versus a “round hole” scenario.
Q: Is this WordPress compatible?
Ans: Yes, it’s compatible with any website system.
Q: I can’t figure out how to build separate pages from this video? How do I present multiple categories of my videos?
Ans: You do not “build pages”, all you do is create “categories” and “sub-categories” using the built-in top slider and left side menu.
Q: I don’t get where the html box comes into the system. What are you talking about. It makes no sense to me. How does this up sell people into more sales?
Ans: The HTML area will appear directly under the “content”. For example, if you’re teaching people how to cook with a video and you’re using a specific type of paring knife in the video, you could easily have an affiliate link or product link to the product so the viewer can buy the product you’re using in the video. This is one simple example but the possibilities are truly endless. Education is a GREAT way to sell to people and it’s why this technique is so effective.
Q: How old is this membership system?
Ans: The system has been “live” since 2009 and we’ve been building and improving it ever since. All the main features i.e. Drip Feed, etc were there from the beginning but we’ve refined and improved and added to the system each year. For Premium Web Cart / CloudNet360 improvement is a non-stop mission from our team of long term programmers.
Q: Is it Wishlist Alternative?
Ans: CloudNet360 system is a good Wishlist Member alternative when you are a “courseware” based membership site. Courseware is really the most popular type of membership business which is why we focused specifically on this niche.

An “Infusionsoft review” by a small business automation software competitor… is it fair? Well, it’s likely not going to be “fair” because we do things in the way that we think is best and Infusionsoft does things in the way that they think is best so there’s always going to be that bias.
This difference in perspective can certainly tilt an opinion in one direction or the other so what we’ll need to do in this Infusionsoft review is spend a little less time reviewing the individual features and a little more time reviewing the differences in design and business philosophy because this will also determine how a product is designed, how you’re treated, and ultimately, how it works in the hands of it’s users.
But before you ever get to see either of the 2 different products, there’s a bridge you need to cross to lay your eyes on the goodies. With CloudNet360, all you need to do is invest $4.97 and you’ll not only get the full system but it’ll even come with an e-Business Advisor to personally help you through every step of the setup and to help you strategically understand how to maximize the effectiveness of the software for your business.
With Infusionsoft it’s a little more complicated. The first thing you need to understand about Infusionsoft is that it’s very similar to buying a used car off one of those “buy here, pay here” corner used car lots with the sleazy used car salesmen.
What I mean by this is… never, never, never, under any circumstances ever accept the pricing they offer because just like the sleazy used car salesman, the first price offered is always the worst price.
The $2,000 upfront fee? Just laugh and say no because it’ll drop to zero if you wait long enough.
The monthly fees you see on their sales page are mere suggestions. I personally do not know anyone paying those monthly fees and like the buyers of the cars from the corner lot, they all think they’re the only ones getting a “special deal”. You should believe you’re getting a unique deal as much as you should believe the salesman is actually going in back to “negotiate” with his manager to get you a better price.
For me personally, this is as far as I would go with Infusionsoft because how they treat you coming in the door is how they’ll treat once you’re through the door.
So you really need to ask yourself if you want to be treated fairly and pay the same fees as everyone else or would you prefer the fake “discount” and then need to wonder if you should have held out longer or if the Infusionsoft user next to you is paying $100 less than you are each month.
This basic business philosophy is what defines Infusionsoft and when you dig deeper, you’ll quickly discover there are many layers to this onion. We’ll cover more of these in future posts but I think you should already be thinking about an Infusionsoft alternative at this point.
And also ask yourself why Infusionsoft makes it so complicated and expensive to try their software while CloudNet360 makes it so easy and risk free?

The best Infusionsoft review is going to be the review of Infusionsoft that simply provides the facts without the hyperbole or the slanted opinion of an “infusionsoft coach” that is really promoting Infusionsoft because they’re also an “Infusionsoft affiliate” that makes profit off of every one of their coaching clients that signs up for an Infusionsoft account.
Not to say that there’s inherently a problem with an Infusionsoft coach earning an affiliate commission from a recommendation, but there is often a conflict of interest when the recommendation is not made in the best interest of the coaching client but instead in the most profitable interest of the coach.
There are some cases where it makes perfect sense for a person to choose Infusionsoft versus an alternative like CloudNet360, but the reality is these legitimate cases are few and far between. With the high upfront fees combined with overpriced monthly fees, it’s easy to see why so many small business people and information marketers have made the logical switch from Infusionsoft to CloudNet360 because they simply get more for their money after they make the change. Not to mention the sneaky hidden fees for the modules that most marketing folks need for their business and erroneously believe are included as part of their package.
When you take all these factors into account, it’s easy to recognize the amazing value-to-performance ratio people are receiving from CloudNet360. Imagine paying “penthouse” prices for your office and discovering that while you have the address of a modern, sleek looking building, your office is located in a back room with no windows and a long hike to an unkept bathroom. But with CloudNet360, you’ll be pleasantly surprised to discover that you’re actually investing far less money each month but receiving far more. Almost like finding a 5-Star resort on Groupon and paying half as much. While you’re lounging at the seaside pool with your fill of “all inclusive” food and drinks, your competitors are staying at the “Super 8” and paying a la carte for ham sandwiches and a coke.
If you’re ready for some royal treatment and 5-star sales automation, review Infusionsoft 1st and then try the best Infusionsoft alternative. You’ll be glad you made the comparison.
CloudNet360, Helping you sell more… faster!
It’s not uncommon for people using Infusionsoft to search out an Infusionsoft alternative and the reasons for this are numerous. But for the sake of brevity, this article will focus on the main reason why Infusionsoft falls short as the best small business CRM and why there’s a much better solution in CloudNet360 as an Infusionsoft alternative.
The simple concept behind any Customer Relationship Manager (CRM) is that it will help a small business, large business, sales team, etc., sell more of the product or service the business is trying to push.
Through better organization, access to information, and sales automation, the CRM nirvana is to bring everything together in one location to improve the systems and performance of the entire team. The centralized information of the CRM is supposed to increase the overall team customer and prospect IQ while the sales automation is supposed to leverage the capabilities of the sales group, so they can focus on the critical aspects of the sales process like closing deals, while the CRM automatically handles the identification and nurturing of the sales leads for them.
But this is where the vast majority of the CRM software programs lose their way and turn the corner into a management tool and control tool instead of a sales tool.
Large business CRM software systems devote too much of their capabilities to the people paying the bills for the CRM i.e. senior management, and too little effort developing tools that help the sales and business team actually accomplish what senior management wants to see in the reports. This backward approach to building value from a CRM is exactly why so many CRM implementations fail and why the sales and business teams view a CRM as more of a chore than a tool for their benefit.
But we don’t care about what a fortune 500 CRM does well, or does poorly; we really only care about the world we live in every day… the world of small business. The world where the “CEO” is also the largest investor in the business, the person working longer and harder than anyone else in the business and the person that suffers the most when the business does poorly.
We’re going to focus on this person and only on software built for this person.
The Infusionsoft CRM software was built for the small business owner / salesperson that wanted to leverage their sales through automation, and to this end, the Infusionsoft CRM was created with a goal on target to what a good small business CRM should do. The problem with the Infusionsoft CRM is that the goal and the execution has never truly matched. The complexity and difficulty of setting up, using, and maintaining the Infusionsoft CRM automation is simply too daunting for the average computer savvy person to manage.
The net result is a sales system with vast potential but with the potential locked up in a location inaccessible to all but the most “technical insiders” that go through untold man hours of training so rigorous that Infusionsoft must maintain a regulatory certification process simply to verify that a person has the capability to actually use their software.
The people that prove themselves are then able to promote themselves as “certified” by Infusionsoft so they can earn a living selling their services as Infusionsoft consultants. And to get the value out of Infusionsoft, you’re going to need to add their consultancy fees into your monthly budget.
Great… if you’re a certified Infusionsoft Consultant… but not so great if you’re just trying to use Infusionsoft software yourself for improved sales and marketing in your business.
After all, isn’t the purpose of sales automation to make it easier to sell more? How can a person expect to actually sell more if they’re forced to learn complicated software so difficult that they waste hundreds of man hours learning? And how is hiring an Infusionsoft consultant any better than skipping the software altogether and just hiring 2 or 3 people to work with you as employees for the same price as paying for 1 Infusionsoft consultant?
These questions and “real world” experience are exactly why frustrated small business owners turn to CloudNet360 as their best Infusionsoft alternative.
Besides the obvious fact that CloudNet360 is a far more complete “all-in-one” business automation solution, focusing exclusively on the CRM portion still highlights a major difference in philosophy and execution.
When you compare the Infusionsoft CRM versus CloudNet360 CRM, the most obvious difference you’ll experience is the “accessibility” of the automation available to you within CloudNet360. Average computer users, with nothing more than the ability to “point & click”, are able to easily set up automated sales funnels, advanced upsell offers, and proven abandoned cart recovery techniques to find and close more customers, increase the dollar value of each transaction, and produce greater follow up sales.
These advanced capabilities will never require a high priced “consultant” to set them up for you, or maintain them, or change them as your business needs change. You’ll be able to easily set up a Christmas sales funnel, modify it for a New Years offer, put a romantic twist into the funnel for valentines day, and then switch it again from heart shaped chocolate boxes to bunny and egg shaped… all on your own! Not to say that outsourcing to a certified service provider is always bad, CloudNet360 has certified providers as well.
But using a CloudNet360 certified service provider is more of a “convenience” for the times you’re simply too busy working on other things while an Infusionsoft consultant is almost a “requirement” to get any automation up and running. But don’t take my word for it, a quick glance at the sales pitch of any of the Infusionsoft consultants will tell you all you need to know (except the high price of course).
If you do not need a complete business automation system, if you only need a small business CRM and aren’t frightened by $125+ per hour “consultant” fees, then Infusionsoft might be the perfect CRM for you, but if you want the best Infusionsoft alternative so you can run your business your way and always stay in control, then you owe to yourself and your business to look seriously at the CloudNet360 CRM + total business solution.
