Then it sends a series of e-mails to get them interested in the webinar, and to motivate them to sign up. If they sign up, they right away hit the “Goal” toward the end of the webinar, and the automation ends. If they don’t register, they get added to an automation promoting a rebroadcast of the webinar.
This enables me to customize my messaging, in other automations, based upon the contact’s engagement with the webinar – Size Height. Here’s the WebinarJam combination panel: I can include tags based upon whether the contact registered, went to, missed, or based upon how long they remained in the webinar. These tags can then set off automations within ActiveCampaign.
It costs me money, and it makes it more most likely that my emails go to spam or Gmail’s promotions tab. People who do not open my emails make it harder for other e-mails to get to the individuals who actually desire them! The “Pro” plan of ActiveCampaign has actually lead scoring integrated in.
Here’s an automation I obtained from ActiveCampaign’s library of automations, which I use to tell which contacts aren’t engaging with my emails. When a contact subscribes, this automation includes a “0 days” tag. As time passes, it includes new tags for 7 days, thirty days, 60 days, etc Each time they open an e-mail, a different automation removes them from this automation, removes all of those tags, and begins this automation over once again.
This automation can be frustrating initially, and this is among those cases where I wish ActiveCampaign had a more out-of-the-box solution. However, due to the fact that you can do anything with ActiveCampaign, in some cases you need to build things from scratch. ActiveCampaign has a choice to erase inactive customers, which I don’t recommend.
Some customers do not have actually tracking switched on, so their opens aren’t taped. Others still wish to be subscribed however have actually been hectic. Here’s my reactivation sequence: I send out one email asking if they still desire to be subscribed, and briefly explaining why I keep my email list tidy. In one week, I send them another email (if they currently clicked on the verification link in the previous email, they’ve currently been gotten rid of from the automation– utilizing a separate automation).
The automation then unsubscribes them (Size Height). My emails also have a link to a form where they can enter their email address to let me understand that they don’t have tracking enabled. This type adds a tag that I use to filter those contacts out. I utilized to add this tag when they clicked a link, however when individuals don’t have tracking on, it makes those links not work so dependably! I just send out a basic “do you still desire my emails?” verification.
You can send out bonus material and try to get the contact more engaged once again. To understand how well your automations are transforming, ActiveCampaign has Objective tracking. A typical way to determine whether a Goal has actually been fulfilled is if a tag has actually been contributed to the contact. This tag can be included because your payment processor taped a sale, or due to the fact that your webinar platform tape-recorded that your contact attended a webinar.
You can also see whether the conclusion rate has actually increased or reduced, the length of time it takes for contacts to reach that goal, and you can browse all contacts to see who did and didn’t reach the goal. ActiveCampaign’s Message Variables is my preferred function – Size Height. It saves me a load of effort and time, and neither MailChimp nor ConvertKit has a comparable feature.
Let’s say you have the given name of just some of your contacts, which is the case with my list. Size Height. I generally do not require a given name to sign up to my list, but sometimes I get a first name, such as when someone purchases an item. Would not it be great to greet your contacts by name, in the cases when you have it? You can do this, however it’s cumbersome.
I’m also filtering for generic terms added by other systems, such as a dash, or “Visitor.” If they have a very first name, I say “Hey,” and after that their very first name. If they don’t, I just say “Hey there,”. By developing a Message Variable in ActiveCampaign, I can easily change my welcoming according to whether or not I have the contact’s very first name.
I created a variable that’s just %greeting-hey%. If I have the contact’s name, it appears in the e-mail. If I don’t have the contact’s name, it defaults to “Hey,”. Where Message Variables really conserve me a lot of time is by enabling me utilize the exact same automation over and over once again for my webinars, and I can rapidly alter out all of the information. Size Height.
Here vary for a webinar I run called “Bust Through Creative Blocks.” You can see I have a bunch of various variables here, such as the date and time of the webinar, the cost of the product, offer terms, coupon code, and more. Each time I run a brand-new webinar, I can alter each of these variables to match any schedule changes or offer modifications.
And here it remains in an email. This message variable allows me to easily change out a countdown timer. I did discuss earlier that one of the cons of ActiveCampaign is their email modifying experience. I switched from MailChimp, and MailChimp happens to have the very best e-mail modifying experience. I actually like to send out simple emails. Size Height.
I have actually discovered that very tough to do with ActiveCampaign. For awhile, I was editing e-mails in ActiveCampaign’s hybrid editor, which is quite cumbersome. For a long time, I used ActiveCampaign’s hybrid HTML and WYSIWYG editor, which was triggered by a basic template I produced. The interface for the HTML editor looks like it was pulled from some free open-source project.
Nevertheless, including images is a little bit of a task. You need to select them from a file browser. There’s no drag and drop choice. ActiveCampaign’s HTML email editor requires that you make up entirely in HTML. The alternative to this, if you desire to have control over the HTML, is to modify pure HTML, with a sneak peek on the side.
Adding images to ActiveCampaign’s rich full-screen editor is a clunky experience. You require different text boxes for above and listed below the image. Lately I have actually started using ActiveCampaign’s rich text editor – Size Height. They have some great templates, however I still desire to send out the simplest e-mail possible. They do have some plain-looking emails, but they have some degree of minimal format, which you can’t remove.
But, with some modifications, I can make my e-mail pretty fundamental. I can make it instantly use up the whole window, and I can tweak the typography to be a little bigger, and have a little more prominent. The most discouraging part of ActiveCampaign’s abundant full-screen editor is adding images. Imagine you’ve simply typed out a fantastic e-mail.
