Listen to What Our Clients Say About Us

Why I choose Viral Solutions, Inc. to do our automated relationship marketing: As an author and developer of the Money Mastery® Personal Financial System, I have long realized that our strength of product is the effectiveness of the program. Our weakest link, however, is marketing. I also realized that there is a big difference between sales and marketing. Our weakest link to volume sales has been the absence of lead volume, which can only come from marketing. In the midst of a continuing barrage of appeals to us from all kinds of services, such as SEO, direct mail, telemarketing, web design, web building, and app design, app building, webinars, video experts, marketing training, Google AdWords, and “experts” of every kind, I have learned that today, the single most important marketing effort must be made via the instrumentation of social media! I further realized that social media marketing needs two compatible components: 1. An ideal tool, and 2. An expert with the tool. We have used the Infusionsoft tool for years, realizing over time that we are severely under-utilizing it, but realizing the magnificence of the tool, and the uniqueness of its capability. Now, the expert; Viral Solutions, LLC. They came to us via recommendations of the folks at Infusionsoft. Infusionsoft recommended Viral Solutions, Inc. as their “top certified third party provider”. After spending a day with Thomas von Ahn and Christine Kelly, we were convinced they are perfect for us. We are excited to be under contract with them, and believe they are the best possible choice to build sales volume for our on line membership sales program.

Tom with Viral Solutions has been invaluable in my learning of Infusionsoft. He does not hesitate to go over the same concepts multiple times and he genuinely cares about his clients. Tom even took the time for an hour call with me when he was on vacation because I had a deadline to meet.

Pros: Viral Solutions is my secret weapon. Cons: I wish I would have found them five years ago and hired them. I run a small engineering company. I was trying to do it all. I get busy with work, then I neglect marketing. After I sell services, there’s a feast but no marketing followed by a famine. I was trying to develop a system to connect with my existing customers, build referrals, and get repeat business. Then I found Infusionsoft. Problem was I didn’t have time for Infusionsoft. It’s like having a shiny new car parked in the driveway without having the keys. Then I found Viral Solutions. Tom and Christine helped me put together the pieces and make it work consistently. They gave me the keys to that shiny new car. They are an important part of my business team. They are technologically savvy and knowledgeable. With them, I can market better than the big boys.
John Thomazin, CEO of REDI Engineering
I am so grateful to be working with this talented, caring and amazing group. As a small business it is hard wearing so many hats and it can be overwhelming at times. It is a comfort to know that I can leave a number of my responsibilities in their hands and they have proven that my confidence is not misplaced. I trust Christine and Tom 100% and I am so thankful for their incredible guidance and support. They truly know their business and take pride in their work and happily share their knowledge. I honestly feel like they care for my business the same way I do and that they are as excited for my successes as I am. I can’t imagine doing business without them ever again. They are a permanent part of my team and I am truly grateful for them.

It is a pleasure working with Christine at Viral Solutions. She and her partner, Tom are so knowledgeable on Infusionsoft and Christine is so patient and helpful in coaching us. We are new to the software and she not only shows us the ropes but also provides us tons of information on things that we need to know but wouldn’t know to ask due to our lack of experience. She also records our meetings so we don’t have to worry about jotting down notes and wasting our valuable consultation time. It is so nice to have a recording to reference as we are working on our own. Finally, Christine and Tom really understand the sales cycle and what client’s need. They are never pushy, very flexible and the turnaround on projects is very quick. I would and have highly recommended VS to colleagues and friends. They are truly in it for the long term with their clients.

We have used so many ‘so called’ online social media experts and been terribly disappointed at every turn. THEN WE FOUND Viral Solutions and our world change. Tom and his team have systematized everything you need to build your social audience and drive traffic to your site. Not only that, their content creation team are second to none. From a standing start, we had them writing blog articles for us that required very little if no editing before releasing them to our site. I could not recommend Viral Solutions more strongly to anyone considering social engagement with their audience.

When I met Thomas at an Infusionsoft monthly meeting I was given a gift. Being 62 years old and trying to learn the intricacies of Infusionsoft not only gave me a headache, but made me question my initial decision to use the software. Thomas and Christine are both consummate professionals. I was taught early on by my business coach that you should do what you do best and outsource the rest. I am GREAT at fitness – I outsource my marketing, CRM, bookkeeping etc… Having Viral Solutions as my partner in my business has been wonderful. Just the thought of trying to teach my admins how to use Infusionsoft scared me. Having Thomas and Christine as my partners has made my teaching of the basics so much easier for my team. I highly recommend Viral Solutions as your partner for Infusionsoft usage. If you are like me and want to enjoy the results of this powerful software without the hassles (and what entrepreneur wouldn’t want that), you must call them and use their expertise. Thank you Thomas and Christine. I will continue to refer you to my network and once again, thank you for being on my team and my partners.
