"By introducing our developer fund, we are continuing to lead with that customer obsession. We're creating this program so our developer partners feel valued and incentivised to create even more tools, and therefore more flexibility for our customers."
Made for Freedom founder Dawn Manske said "The best part of ActiveCampaign is that I'm able to sync the data across my tech tools.
"Having my Shopify and Facebook Custom Audiences integrate with my ActiveCampaign CRM data gives me the insight I need to make decisions about when to reach out to customers and volunteers and with which message. It saves me more time to focus on growing my network and my business."
Outliant's Austin Kueffner said "We value our partnership with ActiveCampaign because there is mutual respect for each other and obsession with customer success.
