What is HighLevel?
HighLevel is an all-in-one digital marketing software tool with over 3 million active users, 700+ employees, and valued at $500M as of 2023.
Cutting out all of the jargon, it's a marketing tool that combines a lot of things you can buy separately and accomplishes making them all work together in a way that's actually useful.
Speaking from my experience using HighLevel as an agency owner, it has a lot of features. More than I personally use. You can technically replace just about everything and go all-in on HighLevel. But I don't.
For example, I still like building websites with WordPress using Thrive Suite. I sell products with SureCart. I run my community on Circle. HighLevel can do these things, but for now I keep these separate.
Where HighLevel fits in for me is the email marketing, CRM, scheduling, funnels (super cool), and automation/workflows component.
Why I choose to use HighLevel
There are so many tools out there, and most of them will actually get the job done. But having tried and used so many of them over the past decade, there's always a single core issue: Synergy between the features that I need!
There are great CRMs, but they're terrible at email and automation. There are email tools but their CRM features are bare bones. There are decent email and automation solutions, but they have no CRM features. And so on, and so on.
That's the one thing HighLevel does better than any other tool I've tried: It gets these three core features to synergize really, really well.
✅ Full-Feature Email Marketing
I need deliverability, ease of use for writing emails, and a way to automate the sending of campaigns and newsletters. I want a solid campaign builder but also the ability to send one-off simple emails.
✅ A Real, Feature-Rich CRM
CRM's are everywhere, but I wanted one that actually helped improve my marketing too. My HighLevel CRM is connected to my email marketing and my automations in ways I can only do because of HighLevel.
✅ Robust Automations (Workflows)
HighLevel has all of the same bare-minimum automation requirements like webhooks. Then it kicks it up 10x with calculations, Stripe payments, call/text/email, social media integration, and full-feature CRM automation.
Why should I sign up under Doug?
I want to be very direct with you here. I'm not one of those 'thirsty' guru 18-year-olds on YouTube promising you a system for making a million dollars to get rich quick just hoping you'll click my affiliate link. I'm not selling you a $5,000 high-ticket offer. I actually run two businesses, have employees, and I work hard to grow those businesses and provide a comfortable standard of living. If you want the "I can make you rich" hype, please look elsewhere.
If you're good with reality, then let's get into it!
Running a business is a lot of work... A LOT.... and finding the right tools to make it easier and more efficient is overwhelming and confusing. When you finally find something that can make a difference, trying to get it all to work feels impossible. Taking you from that moment of overwhelm and despair and transplanting you into a working system feeling confident and empowered... that's my secret sauce right there.
Sign up with me, either as an affiliate or under my white-labeled version of HighLevel, because you know the value of having someone constantly there to support you brings. If you sign up through my affiliate link, I get a percentage of the sale. That's why I can offer you these bonuses. If you sign up through my white-labeled agency account, you're paying me directly and you become my customer, so I get paid by you to provide you great service.

Ideal for those moments when you're stuck, confused, or overwhelmed and need a little boost over the finish line. Book a call any time you need assistance.

Yes, absolutely, but it's also 1/10th of the product. FluentCRM does emails pretty well, but the CRM side is non-existent and the automation side is just 'okay'. One of the biggest problems that I've had with FluentCRM lately is its dependence on WordPress. If anything goes wrong with your WordPress website, your entire email marketing, "crm", and automation platform is 100% screwed. I have a really hard time taking that risk.
Yep, I use Thrive Suite with WordPress to build a lot of my websites. The Thrive Architect page builder and Thrive Theme Builder are still superior tools to HighLevel's website building tools, but HighLevel is catching up. I also use Astra and Spectra, which are terrific for straightforward website building. My recommendation for HighLevel does not impact my choice of using these WordPress-based tools.
That's depends! I use Thrive Apprentice, but HighLevel is really starting to up its game with its course platform. Circle is also doing some really great things with courses. If you want a super customizable experience, so with Thrive Apprentice. If you want the true all-in-one solution then go with HighLevel. If you want the best Community integrations, go with Circle.
It can, but I think the community feature is its weakest feature by far. I think they can absolutely improve it, but today it's not worth using the community feature over something like Circle. You can still use HighLevel to sell access to your Circle community, though. It's really easy and I can help you with that.
I teach my clients that all-in-one solutions are usually "bad" if you're keeping your entire business model wrapped up in one piece of software. That's the same for WordPress, too. I have always taught modularity. You want all of the pieces of your business to be severable and capable of being reattached. I do not run everything in HighLevel, and I recommend you strongly consider the needs of your business when you make that decision. If you're one of my HighLevel affiliates or a client of mine, we'll talk through all of this together on our strategy call so that we can identify the best path forward for your business.
