“As one of the very first employees at ONTRAPORT (formerly Office Autopilot), and the original creator of much of our training material, and the guy who personally supported our first several hundred clients, Tobin has seen a lot.
He’s worked with some of the best marketers in the business, has advised on and helped build many very sophisticated automated business systems, and knows how to get this kind of work done.
I can personally vouch for his integrity and would absolutely recommend him for anyone looking for ONTRAPORT implementation consulting. You won’t be disappointed!”
“I have grown my home internet business slowly over the last 9 years. I started with free services, then I upgraded to using sites like 1shoppingCart and aWeber as many online entrepreneurs do. As my business grew I found myself piecing together more and more 3rd party software until I had a patchwork of confusion. Enter ONTRAPORT to save the day.
If you have an existing business and want to take advantage of ONTRAPORT‘s power, you HAVE to set it up right the first time. Otherwise you’ll make critical errors that will cost you thousands of dollars and weeks of person hours. Also, ONTRAPORT is so powerful that you have no idea what it can do when you sign up. So to save time, money, headaches and confusion, you MUST hire Tobin.”
“Tobin worked with me over a period of months to make sure the 5 or 6 web services I was using were fully integrated and functional in ONTRAPORT. That included years of purchase data, my huge mailing list, 6 Kajabi courses, hard goods, an affiliate program and a very complex WordPress membership site. Now, they all run through ONTRAPORT, and I have all my customer’s histories in one spot.
I also hired Tobin for a makeover. He flew to my home, and in three days we mapped out a successful strategy for the future of my business. Whatever Tobin charges is easily covered in money he saved me in headaches. Also, I can remember one amazing idea he gave me that will easily pay for the makeover and months of retainer I have been paying him for.
He’s not only a total tech wizard who knows ONTRAPORT better than anyone else on Earth, he’s also a savvy marketer who has amazing ideas on how to synthesize ONTRAPORT into your own business. I hang around a lot of smart internet marketers, and Tobin fits in with this crowd easily. His mind is amazing. He’s also extremely professional, enthusiastic, is always on time, and is prepared for meetings.
Tobin has a genuine care for his clients that is nothing short of impressive. I’m a pretty opinionated person, and my opinion is that anyone who joins ONTRAPORT and doesn’t hire Tobin is crazy. If you are ready to rock your business and take it to a fully pro level, with unlimited potential, Tobin is your man. Oh, one more thing. You’ll never find the equivalent to Tobin in ONTRAPORT‘s competition. So if you’re leaning one way or the other, here is your reason to go with ONTRAPORT. With Tobin, you’ll crush it.”
“Ontraport’s value in our business has grown 15X because of the campaigns and coaching from Leg Up. And we are only getting started! I wish I had found this program six years ago.
The coaching you’ve given us on how to improve our copy, the design of our pages and flow, and how to better position our offers has been.”
I just wanted to write you a note to let you know how awesome your Leg Up program has been for us over here at Dedicated Developers.
We have been using Ontraport for the past seven years. Over the years, we’ve tried to launch various campaigns with whatever help we could: Ontraport’s implementation calls; using the templates OP offers for free; hiring certified consultants; etc. Yet it wasn’t until we signed up for Leg Up a few months ago that we started realizing the full magnitude of Ontraport’s capabilities.
As a small business owner, I’d always known Ontraport has the tools and features we need to be successful. However, due to our lack of expertise in Ontraport (and lack of time to master the software), I was never able to unleash its full potential…for the better part of seven years!
In fact, I had begun looking at other solutions for our business in hopes of finding a platform we could leverage faster and easier.
Then I heard about Leg Up and I decided that before I left Ontraport I’d give it one more try – but this time, with the aid of the Leg Up program.
Within a few weeks of registering and with the help of your excellent coaching calls, we had implemented your Automatic Sales Machine campaign.
What a world of difference it has been!! No longer do I worry about leads falling through the cracks. The campaign is so well-designed. After customizing it for our flow, it has automated our entire lead journey, from opt-in to appointment, to post-appointment follow up, to sale.
The lifetime value of our clients is very high, so every missed opportunity is a big deal for us. Now that I don’t have to worry about tracking every potential sale, I’m enjoying a newfound peace of mind, because our ASM campaign performs most of our sales process (automatically).
And the results we’re already seeing are awesome! For starters, we used to have leads falling through the cracks. Now those leads (who don’t book an appointment right away) are drawn back into engagement with our ASM campaign automation. I’d say our conversion from leads to appointment has gone up by over 15%.
Plus, the campaign follows up with our clients who buy the blueprint (the initial service we offer) to send us their documents so they feel more engaged. In fact, most of our clients think I manually sent them that follow-up email. Ha! This has increased our new client engagement and is likely to result in around at least a 10% increase in sales. A single sale for us is worth $20K+ so this is a huge lift in our bottom line.
It’s what I had always envisioned when I signed up for Ontraport, but it honestly wouldn’t have gotten done without Leg Up.
The Leg Up campaign templates are an awesome start, but what has been so key for me is the education and coaching. Your how-to videos in the campaigns and the weekly training I get from the group coaching calls have made the difference.
You really get it. AND you care! Your understanding of sales and marketing strategy, your excitement about my business and the best ways for me to use Ontraport’s features to achieve our goals have been total game-changers for us. The coaching you’ve given us on how to improve our copy, the design of our pages and flow, and how to better position our offers has been priceless.
I often have other members of our team watch the call recordings in the weeks following a call, as well. We’ve noticed that we’re all getting much more confident with the system and the result is that we’re having to reach out to Ontraport’s customer support less than before. A huge plus for us!
These coaching calls are so valuable for me that when I’m not able to be on one, I feel a pang of regret knowing how much I’m missing.
If I had to guess, I’d say that Ontraport’s value in our business has grown 15X because of Leg Up. And we are only getting started with so many Leg Up campaigns to launch! I wish I had found this program six years ago. I think we’d have doubled our business beyond where we are now. Oh, well! So glad we’ve got it now!
I’ve always loved the people and the culture at Ontraport, but honestly, I used to cringe when I’d see the charge for Ontraport on my credit card statement because I knew we weren’t getting anywhere near the potential value for the money we were spending on it. We were basically using it as a glorified email sender for all these years. These days when I think about the money we pay for Ontraport, I smile. I’m happy to pay for it. I am super glad to have found you and Leg Up! It’s been one of the best investments we’ve made in our business.
Thank you, Tobin!!
“There’s simply no replacement for someone who knows how a system is built and understands what you are trying to accomplish with it.
Tobin was able to understand our (very complicated) system design in record time and saved us more than $50k in time we would’ve wasted with our team – and the result is that we have a system that does everything our full-time VA used to do. If he were $100/minute he’d still save us money.”
“My company provides strategic advisory services to major companies that are seeking highly profitable ways to make sustainability a commitment in their business. It’s a high touch, very personal business, but one with plenty of operational nuts and bolts in the back end.
We’ve been wanting to streamline that back end—to free our people to focus more on direct, value building interaction with our clients—but knew we needed to do that in a way that supported and didn’t conflict with the authentic, personal relationships that are key to our engagements.
That’s where Tobin Poppenberg came in—with both the technical knowledge and the business insight to design and build the systems we needed.”
“Tobin started by getting to the real heart of our ideal workflow, rethought what was needed—for both our clients and our team, designed and mapped out fully automated systems for doing everything from managing the flow of new leads, to managing the sales process, selling and delivering services, managing client communications and supporting referrals.
We’ve gone from multiple systems with lots of manual management—and, what’s worse, with people sometimes falling through the cracks—to a tight, efficient ONTRAPORT system that’s enabling us to sell more effectively, and give better service to our clients, with less wear, tear and distraction. And with growing revenue and profit.
I love that Tobin is not just a technical wiz—though he is that—and a great teacher, but also someone who could get inside my head, understand my business and even see ways to improve things that we couldn’t see.It’s been a great investment to have someone we can count on, who has exceeded our expectations and who is a pleasure to work with.”
“When I met Tobin, we were having serious problems with our marketing automation and email delivery systems. Tobin not only recommended the best software of all, ONTRAPORT (formerly OfficeAutopilot), but was really, really helpful during our migration and implementation process. Tobin gets marketing automation at a very deep level.
He knows the system inside and out; he’s not only very professional and very funny to work with, but the guy is also a great teacher, so he won’t only set everything up for you, you will actually understand what he’s doing so you can replicate it. So, if you’re having any marketing automation issues, then just go with Tobin. It will be a great addition to your team, your experience, and your business.”
“I’m a business consultant and have owned, sold and been involved with various internet marketing and advertising companies over the years.
Recently, I started work with a unique NYC based businesses called Mama Gena’s School of Womanly Arts. This medium sized business, run by women, for women, teaches workshops in the Womanly Arts, a set of tools and practices for succeeding in life as women.”
“As the company grew, its internal systems, procedures and processes did not also grow and improve. Thus, I found myself having to renovate and re-engineer everything – from how to process payments, to how e-mails got sent and tracked, to how leads were tracked and handled. All of these were being done (poorly) through different systems and technologies – with a myriad of problems and complexities. It truly was a ball of yarn so tightly knotted and tangled, I didn’t know how to solve it. But I knew I needed to.
When I asked around in my professional network for a platform for running our business and someone to implement it,I kept hearing two things: ONTRAPORT and Tobin.
I then posted an ad on Craigslist looking for an ONTRAPORT consultant, and I kid you not, the one response I got said, you should talk to Tobin – he’s the best person for this.
I thought to myself, who is this guy?! After talking with him several times, I realized why so many people in my professional network were raving fans. Tobin just gets it. He’s highly skilled with ONTRAPORT AND he understand sales, marketing and business process.
Seriously, you just don’t find that combination – and when you do, you can rarely hire them out to work with you for days on end, totally focused on solving your problems.
I can say that his ability to quickly grasp our issues and problems, current systems and methods and then help map them over to ONTRAPORT was invaluable.
With a robust system like ONTRAPORT, you need to architect it in advance. Just like you hire an architect to create plans for building your house before you build it (or at least I hope you do!), you want to get an “architect” to help you master plan your ONTRAPORT build.
At first I was not happy about the cost. But I quickly realized it was an investment – one that would pay dividends in two ways. One, investing in Tobin meant I saved myself from spending hours of time fixing problems and errors for months after the fact.
I suspect just in staff hours alone, I saved money hiring Tobin. But secondly, and more importantly, the investment in Tobin pays off every month as things work smoothly, and automatically and we can grow and scale our business. Tobin thought of and solved problems, I would never have thought of. He’s just got that level of skill, experience, and jedi mind magic. Seriously.
The last thing I’ll say is I’ve been super happy with his after-care. I didn’t realize how important this was, but having some calls and time to consult after our initial time together has been invaluable. He was available to answer questions, problem solve, guide and teach as needed.
We’ve been using ONTRAPORT for three months now, and have just registered 800 people for an upcoming event. Everything around this event has been gracefully and smoothly handled by ONTRAPORT. I literally can’t imagine how we did it before – and I have Tobin to thank for that.
His costs may feels steep and it may be unclear how to value it. But i can truly tell you if you have any scale of business, its a no-brainer investment.”
After benefiting from your expertise for the past 4 years, I can honestly say that there is no one on the planet who knows ONTRAPORT as well as you do. Your knowledge-base, problem solving abilities and skill within this program has been a godsend time and time again for our company. It has been so refreshing to work with someone who really understands what a small business needs, and makes every working interaction easy and fun. I so appreciate your sense of humor. Tobin, you are a pleasure to work with and a real expert at what you do. Thank you for employing your knowledge in order to take our small business to the next level!”
“Tobin is my “go-to” ONTRAPORT, (formerly Office Autopilot) technologist. When I signed up for ONTRAPORT, I knew I needed an expert to help me create membership sites, an affiliate program, and automate my emails and product offerings. Tobin has been able to implement the aforementioned in addition to walking me through the process with clear explanations, training and video tutorials.
Before I hired Tobin, I was at my wit’s end, and spent thousands on people who said they knew what they were doing, but didn’t. Investing in Tobin’s services made my ONTRAPORT headaches go away.
Additionally, Tobin’s expertise transcends just the tech side, as he has a firm grasp of Internet Marketing strategies and copywriting, so he provides a holistic approach to ONTRAPORT. I recommend Tobin 100% if you want to quickly and efficiently implement ONTRAPORT into your business.”
“I’ve been an ONTRAPORT (formerly Office Autopilot) user for about three years. I’m very hands-on and I wanted to be sure I really understood the system so I could work with it myself. Given this, I was dead set on figuring it out myself. By the 6th month of this, however, I found that I was still struggling with how to implement everything properly. So, after wasting a bunch of time, I finally decided I needed some professional help, so I decided to go attend a three-day long intensive with Tobin to get myself fully integrated and set up. During this process, he helped me do some really amazing things.
He asked me excellent questions and helped me pinpoint how I could best use the software in my specific business. He help me strategize and create an incredible marketing automation plan and also helped write a lot of the copy. Plus, the guy is personal, professional, and a total riot to work with. I am so grateful to have the ONTRAgenius at my beck and call when I need him!”
“Tobin is a man of extraordinary talents – creative, incredibly strategic and utterly mad for results, he provides the guidance and expertise needed to get ONTRAPORT (formerly Office AutoPilot) causing big results for your business! While ONTRAPORT is very powerful, Tobin is uniquely adept at harnessing that power to help small businesses flourish. He is full of ideas to help create consistent, creative campaigns that build relationships, increase conversions and ultimately drive revenue.”
“We’ve been working with Tobin and ONTRAPORT (formerly Office Autopilot) for the past five years. There is simply no one else that has the system knowledge combined with marketing expertise to put this robust marketing machine to work at optimal levels. If you want to save countless hours automating your marketing while getting it done in the most efficient manner, get the best to do it for you. Hire Tobin!”
Founder, Zen Ventures
“For the past five years, we’ve been loyal clients of ONTRAPORT (formerly Office Autopilot). While we were getting set up and integrated, Tobin’s expertise and insight were indispensable. He helped us clarify our goals and implement the best automation strategies for our particular business model. What’s more is that even while some of what he’s helped us create has been very sophisticated, he’s managed to teach us about what he’s done in a way that is easy to understand, giving us the ability to imagine and create new automated systems on our own through the years. Plus, he is literally the funniest man I’ve ever met, making the process of working with him all the more pleasurable. Thank you so much for everything, Tobin, I can’t recommend you enough!”
Automated Marketing Systems
“Tobin is a master at building out automated marketing funnels and the go-to expert for ONTRAPORT (formerly Office Autopilot). I’ve worked with Tobin for the last 3 years utilizing his expertise of automated marketing and ONTRAPORT.
His in-depth knowledge on how to maximize the use of active response rules and triggers is amazing. He continually amazes me on how you can take things one step further to increase the retention rate of customers and increase opportunities to convert prospects to customers. He also makes the entire process fun! You’ll be amazed and with what he can do for your business and automation process.”
“is what we created over the past two weeks using the Automated Sale Machine. It works perfectly and I'm so glad we made this investment! Shout out to Tobin for creating this because there is no way we would have been this organized without Leg Up!”
