and CiviCRM 4.0.x compatible!
CiviCRM plus Joomla is a fantastic platform for your business or non-profit. Joomla powers your Website. CiviCRM organizes your Contacts, events, and even powers your mailing list. The combination is quite powerful for a range of businesses.
CorFun has had a great deal of experienced using the Joomla/CiviCRM combination for a variety of non-profit and for-profit organizations. While CiviCRM is a powerful tool, it did have one weakness when compared to other Joomla/CRM combinations. If you are trying to get a visitor to your site to sign up for a newsletter or request more information (become a self-generated lead) then core CiviCRM routes the visitor to a page on which to fill in the information.
This is can be a clunky, two-step process. Worse, when the potential customer or donor lands on the CiviCRM page to sign up, a long list of optional information (snail mail address, phone number, etc.) can be staring him or her in the face. If the person just wanted a quick email with more information, your asking for address, phone number, etc. can cause second thoughts. If the potential customer or donor fails to fill out the information, then you have lost contact forever.
CiviLead from CorFun is a component and module which combine to streamline the process of getting “leads” and eNewsletter subscribers into your CiviCRM system. You can use the CiviLead Module to encourage contact from any page of your Joomla-powered site, just as you see us doing so on the right side of this page.
With CiviLead, you can reduce the usage of your “Contact Us” page for folks who want specific information. With CiviLead, you just use CiviCRM for those "contact" purposes by putting a contact module right there on a page advertising a service, an event, a volunteer opportunity, a product, etc.! CiviLead can generate an internal email that notifies one of your resources that someone would like more information. That information is captured in your CiviCRM install, so instead of getting valuable contact information in an email from a Web form, capture that information in CiviCRM where you can best use it!

Suppose you have three CiviLead modules in use. One is for regular eNewsletter sign ups. One is for people interested in buying a new product you are offering. One is for people interested in attending an event you are planning. Three CiviLead module instances which allows you to have:
