“As Keap continues to live up to its mission of empowering small business owners to grow their businesses through the power of sales and marketing automation, we are thrilled to announce our acquisition of The Factory, which will give Keap customers additional tools to drive their success,” said Clate Mask, co-founder and CEO of Keap. “These new services will assist small business owners and entrepreneurs with the campaigns they want to run, but don’t have the time to build and implement—making Keap’s automation an even better fit for any small business owner today.”

The Factory allows small business owners to submit new campaign requests in minutes. Once received, the Factory’s team creates and implements the new campaign in approximately 2-3 business days. The Factory’s service line-up helps small business owners with lead capture campaigns, conversion campaigns, webinar campaigns, offer campaigns, building landing pages and rebuilding old campaigns.

“The Factory has assisted more than 1,800 entrepreneurs in creating over 8,000 campaigns to move their businesses forward, and we couldn’t be more excited to make campaigns simplified for all of Keap’s small business owners today,” said Tyler Garns, founder of The Factory. “I built The Factory to make it quicker, easier, and more affordable for customers to get the services they need and with the Keap acquisition, more customers will be able to have more frequent and successful campaigns in a fraction of the time.” 

The Factory will be incorporated into Keap’s existing service offerings and a new coaching plus service offering will be available for new small business owners looking for a one-stop shop for an easy and successful Keap implementation.
