Keap Features You Can Bring to ClickFunnels

Keap (formerly Infusionsoft) is a powerful program that has helped a lot of people enter the digital marketing world and automate their presence there. There is a lot of overlap between ClickFunnels and Keap in that they do many of the same things. Many people feel that while ClickFunnels is easier to use, Keap has some functionality that ClickFunnels can’t quite match.

If you’re just starting out, it’s likely easier (and cheaper) to simply learn to use Clickfunnels’ all-in-one platform as the performance differences between the two are marginal and ClickFunnels quite a bit easier to pick up. However, if you’re already set up in Keap, it may make more sense to integrate your existing email lists, autoresponder, analytics tools, or payment platform instead of learning something new.

Email Lists

If you’ve already been using Keap, you’ve likely already filled out some pretty solid email and customer lists. It is possible to port those lists over to ClickFunnels, but you may simply want your list to stay in Keap so that you can continue to use your current autoresponder and other Keap elements tied to those lists. This is especially so if there’s going to be a period where you’re marketing off both platforms. You can read more about using Clickfunnels with Infusionsoft here.

Once you’ve integrated, any customer information that you capture through your ClickFunnels sales funnel will be automatically added to your lists in keep. Your autoresponder will then react to those contacts just as it would as if they were captured by Keap.

Autoresponder

The autoresponder is one area where many people feel that Keap provides more options and a more powerful level of automation than ClickFunnels. For example, Keap includes a CRM tool (Customer Relationship Management) that can allow you email marketing to seamlessly and automatically work alongside real-world marketing processes—such as a phone campaign.

Analytics

Keap uses a wide array of marketing reports to keep you up-to-date and well-informed on the performance of your funnel at any given moment. You generate reports on conversions, completion, email open rates, click-throughs, campaign performance, etc.

Keap analyzes and presents millions of data points in tons of different ways to help you track the metrics that matter to you. Follow your customers through the sales process and identify where people are falling off and how you can get them to thank you page.

By connecting Keap with ClickFunnels, you can track use the same powerful tracking software to keep up on your ClickFunnel.

Payment Gateway

If you’re using an Authorize.net payment gateway through Keap you may want to continue using this same gateway in ClickFunnels. Like every other item on this list, ClickFunnels includes a payment platform, but you may not want to take down your current payment system and set up a new one. Even more so if you’re taking payment through multiple funnels and platforms simultaneously.

Currently, Authorize.net is the only gateway supported through API. This means that if you’re using anything other than Authorize.net, you’re out of luck. It won’t integrate with ClickFunnels and you’ll need to begin using their native payment system.
