Using the Infusionsoft integration
Note: The InfusionSoft integration is now available in the Zoom Marketplace. If setting up a new integration, use the Marketplace app. Learn more about the InfusionSoft Marketplace integration.
The Infusionsoft integration allows for a quick way to automatically register attendees to Zoom Webinars, track attendance, create customized branded reminders and automate follow-up messages.
With Zoom-Infusionsoft Integration, you can register your prospects and customers for Zoom Webinars without requiring them to register on the Zoom Webinars Registration page. This will allow them to “register” for Zoom Webinars through Infusionsoft using links, web forms, product purchases, etc. Once their information is passed over to Zoom via the integration, Zoom will assign their unique webinar join link as a custom object that can be included in an email sent as confirmation through Infusionsoft. With this custom object, you will be able to completely customize any follow-up or reminder emails and provide the registrant’s unique link to join. You will also be able to tag your prospects/customers as attended so that you can send appropriate follow-up information to those who did or did not attend.
