Insightly is a great choice of customer relationship manager (CRM) app for many speakers. It's on the simpler and less expensive end of the spectrum compared to Salesforce or Keap, yet offers all of the features that many speakers require.
If you keep your contacts in Insightly, you can easily link them to your eSpeakers events. This feature is included with your PRO account ( upgrade ).

  3. Enter part or all of the name of the contact you want to be added to this event, then click the search button (MAGNIFYING GLASS).
  4. Choose the name you want from the list of the results and click the GRAB button.


Presto! You now have a copy of that Insightly contact added to the event.
Note that grabbed contacts are copies; you can make changes to their record on the EventCX event and it will not affect the original contact in Insightly. Likewise, changes you make in Insightly will not change copies of those contacts previously added to an event.
