To begin building an automation in ActiveCampaign, begin with a “trigger.” There are a number of ways you can activate an automation, including: When a tag is added When a contact subscribes to a list When a contact submits a kind E-commerce and on-site alternatives (readily available in the “Pro” plan) When the contact reaches a specific point in another automation.

From there, you can start developing the actions in your automation. Some actions that are offered in ActiveCampaign’s automations are: Send an email Notify an employee Wait conditions If/then conditionals Split traffic for screening Skip to other parts of the automation Track goals (The contact can skip to the goal’s location in the automation.) Start or end another automation, or end the present automation Post a webhook Subscribe or unsubscribe the contact to/from lists Update contact details Include and get rid of tags Add a note Lead scoring, SMS and site messages, and Facebook Customized Audience management are all “Pro” features – • Active Campaign.

Contrast with ConvertKit‘s Automations, which are more minimal. On ConvertKit, you can activate an automation when: The contact sends a type The contact purchases A tag is contributed to the contact A customized field is updated with a particular worth From there, you can develop Conditions, to inspect whether the contact has a particular tag or custom-made field value.

You can likewise create Events, which are a bit like ActiveCampaign’s Goals, but without the reporting. You can track an Event when: A tag is added or removed The contact makes a purchase A date occurs A customized field is updated with a certain worth You do not create emails in ConvertKit’s Automations.

ActiveCampaign makes it simple for me to develop my email course precisely how I want to build it. Many marketers develop extremely easy email sequences for their “e-mail courses.” A contact indications up, and then that contact immediately starts getting lessons.

It was simple to develop with ActiveCampaign, but impossible when I was with MailChimp. I do not do that technique. My e-mail course is by hand synced with this countdown timer on my site. You have to sign up by Friday night, and a new course begins each Monday morning. When I initially tried this method, I was on MailChimp.

Here’s the automation I utilize to invite brand-new students to my Design Pitfalls course. There’s a few things going on here: The automation sends out all contacts a “welcome e-mail (• Active Campaign).” The automation confirms that it’s not Friday. If it’s not Friday, the automation waits up until it is Friday. At 11am, it sends a “pump up” e-mail to get the trainees prepared for next week’s course, and motivate them to share it with good friends.

The contact will start getting lessons the following Monday morning. If it is Friday and after 7pm, the contact missed enrollment for next week’s class. They’ll get the pump up email the following Friday morning, and lessons the Monday after that. It was impossible for me to automate this with MailChimp.

When I run a webinar, I do not wish to send out the exact same email to every person on my list. I wish to send them the suitable email for their level of engagement – • Active Campaign. • Active Campaign. Here’s the automation I use to promote an evergreen webinar: First it verifies that they haven’t currently acquired the item I pitch in the webinar.

• Active Campaign

Then it sends a series of emails to get them thinking about the webinar, and to encourage them to register. If they register, they immediately hit the “Objective” toward completion of the webinar, and the automation ends. If they do not sign up, they get added to an automation promoting a rebroadcast of the webinar. • Active Campaign.

This enables me to tailor my messaging, in other automations, based upon the contact’s engagement with the webinar. Here’s the WebinarJam integration panel: I can add tags based upon whether the contact registered, went to, missed out on, or based upon for how long they remained in the webinar. These tags can then trigger automations within ActiveCampaign.

It costs me cash, and it makes it more most likely that my e-mails go to spam or Gmail’s promotions tab. Individuals who do not open my e-mails make it harder for other emails to get to the individuals who truly want them! The “Pro” plan of ActiveCampaign has lead scoring built in.

Here’s an automation I obtained from ActiveCampaign’s library of automations, which I utilize to inform which contacts aren’t engaging with my e-mails. When a contact subscribes, this automation includes a “0 days” tag. As time passes, it includes brand-new tags for 7 days, thirty days, 60 days, etc Each time they open an email, a different automation eliminates them from this automation, eliminates all of those tags, and begins this automation over once again.

This automation can be overwhelming initially, and this is among those cases where I wish ActiveCampaign had a more out-of-the-box solution. But, due to the fact that you can do anything with ActiveCampaign, sometimes you have to construct things from scratch. ActiveCampaign has a choice to erase non-active customers, which I don’t suggest.

Some customers do not have tracking turned on, so their opens aren’t taped. Others still wish to be subscribed but have been hectic. Here’s my reactivation sequence: I send out one e-mail asking if they still wish to be subscribed, and briefly discussing why I keep my email list clean. In one week, I send them another email (if they already clicked the verification link in the previous email, they have actually already been gotten rid of from the automation utilizing a different automation) – • Active Campaign.

The automation then unsubscribes them. My e-mails also have a link to a type where they can enter their e-mail address to let me understand that they don’t have tracking enabled. This form includes a tag that I utilize to filter those contacts out. • Active Campaign. I utilized to include this tag when they clicked on a link, however when people don’t have tracking on, it makes those links not work so dependably! I just send out an easy “do you still want my emails?” confirmation.
