EarlyParrot integrates directly with Infusionsoft. EarlyParrot via its integration with Infusionsoft can:
- populate custom fields for any contact in Infusionsoft CMS
- add tags to any contact in Infusionsoft CMS
How to integrate Infusionsoft?
To integrate Infusionsoft with EarlyParrot, go to the integration section and choose Infusionsoft tab. Click on the Infusionsoft Integration switch to start your integration.
On switching on Infusionsoft Integration, click on Grant Access button
A new tab will open, redirecting to Infusionsoft. Infusionsoft will ask you to log in and grant access to EarlyParrot integration application.

If the integration setup was successful you will be able to see different accordions with several settings as follows.
There are two kinds of settings that EarlyParrot will require:
- Custom field name (please make sure you get the database name)
- Tag IDs
EarlyParrot will populate custom fields and add a tag whenever an event happens. For instance, when a new reward is given out to a referrer, EarlyParrot will:
- create a new tag if it does not exist with the reward’s name
- add that tag to the contact in Infusionsoft
By populating custom fields and adding tags, EarlyParrot can trigger automation on Infusionsoft.

Scroll down and click on Create Custom field button.

How to add subscribers to both Infusionsoft and EarlyParrot?
Please note that EarlyParrot will not add subscribers to your InfusionSoft account. EarlyParrot will only add tags and populate custom fields to your Infusionsoft contacts, assuming that the contact already exists. This means that your existing sign-up flow by which subscribers are added to your Infusionsoft account via an Infusionsoft form should remain as is.
The following example assumes you have an Infusionsoft generated form like this one.
Log into your Google Tag Manager and go to Triggers tab.
Create a new trigger new Page View trigger.
Call it EarlyParrot Subscriber Page Trigger. Set the trigger condition to make sure it triggers only on the subscribe page URL.
Once done, create another trigger. This time a custom event trigger.
Then go the tags tab.
Create a new Custom HTML tag.
Call the first tag EarlyParrot Subscribe Call Step1. This tag loads the required scripts for the next tag.
The following is the HTML code for EarlyParrot Subscribe Call Step1.

How to import existing Infusionsoft subscribers?
Simply export all your contacts to CSV and follow these instructions. Make sure that the Welcome Email is switched off in Branding step in the campaign create/edit wizard. Failure to do so will result in EarlyParrot sending out a welcome email to all your subscribers, causing a lot of unnecessary confusion.
