Key items to confirm before setting up a drip campaign:

  1. What kind of asset is being created?

    • Email template: 

      • The team can create a custom one, or you can choose a pre-made template from the software. Read here for more information on viewing all the content available to you. 
      • If you want to utilize one that is already in the portal, provide the name of the template and support will create the drip from that template

    • Landing Page:

      • Consider if you need to create a landing page for the campaign. You will only need to create a landing page for the campaign if your email asks contacts to RSVP to an event, download a piece of content, or sign up for a promotion for example. If you aren’t sure if you need a landing page, talk with your consultant.

  2. Whose account will the asset be created in?

    • Is there an admin that is going to be setting up and sending the email on behalf of another user? Or will it all be ran under one account?

  3. Whose name will be used as the sender and in the signature of the emails?

    • Who is this going on behalf of?
    • Typically sales person or the CEO

  4. Which contacts will be receiving this campaign?

    • Is this piece of mail intended for all contacts? Current customers? Warm leads? Prospects?
    • Has the proper Smart List been created for the desired recipients?
    • You may need to create the smart list first, then ask the team to associate this list with the campaign

  5. Date and time the first email will be sent.

    • Since this is a B2B audience, we normally recommend between Tues - Thurs during business hours, but can be tested for their specific list and region at different times. Typically we do the next week day available.
    • We normally don’t recommend Mondays or Fridays since executives in small businesses are usually either not in the office or catching up due to the weekend.
