In business you need to use a lot of tools and process data across different software and platforms to make things easy, but the process itself isn’t really easy with out ZOHO products, they offer a complete line up of business requirements from Accounting, HR, Email marketing, support systems and even Campaign management.
ZOHO Campaigns let you create campaigns that really work, drive traffic or generate leads and connect with auto-responders and etc,.
ZOHO offers everything as single well integrated package so every ZOHO software works with other ZOHO software seamlessly, helping managers to feel easy and quick to solve problems in their day to day jobs.
But its not really that easy yet, there are businesses/individuals who use other tools which offer better features than ZOHO campaigns for capturing leads, but still want to use ZOHO other products, so there is need for integration between existing lead capture systems and ZOHO campaigns, unfortunately very few lead capture softwares support ZOHO, for example if you are using HelloBar and want to put those leads to ZOHO Campaigns – you simply can not do that unless you sit and code the integration.
Optingun solves this gap by offering a pre-coded integrtion between Optingun and ZOHO Campaigns, so every lead captured on your WordPress blogs and other websites can be put into ZOHO and it takes off from there.
