To start constructing an automation in ActiveCampaign, start with a “trigger.” There are a number of methods you can trigger an automation, consisting of: When a tag is included When a contact subscribes to a list When a contact submits a kind E-commerce and on-site choices (readily available in the “Pro” strategy) When the contact reaches a particular point in another automation.

From there, you can begin developing the actions in your automation. Some actions that are offered in ActiveCampaign’s automations are: Send out an email Alert a staff member Wait conditions If/then conditionals Split traffic for testing Skip to other parts of the automation Track goals (The contact can avoid 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 eliminate tags Include a note Lead scoring, SMS and site messages, and Facebook Customized Audience management are all “Pro” functions – Note Length “Active Campaign”.

Contrast with ConvertKit‘s Automations, which are more limited. On ConvertKit, you can activate an automation when: The contact submits a form The contact makes a purchase A tag is contributed to the contact A custom-made field is updated with a specific value From there, you can develop Conditions, to examine whether the contact has a specific tag or custom field value.

You can also develop Events, which are a bit like ActiveCampaign’s Goals, but without the reporting. You can track an Event when: A tag is included or gotten rid of The contact makes a purchase A date occurs A customized field is updated with a certain value You do not produce e-mails in ConvertKit’s Automations.

ActiveCampaign makes it easy for me to develop my email course exactly how I ‘d like to develop it. Lots of online marketers develop really simple e-mail series for their “e-mail courses.” A contact signs up, and after that that contact instantly starts getting lessons.

It was simple to construct with ActiveCampaign, however impossible when I was with MailChimp. I don’t do that technique. My email course is manually synced with this countdown timer on my site. You have to sign up by Friday night, and a new course starts each Monday early morning. When I first tried this approach, I was on MailChimp.

Here’s the automation I use to invite new students to my Style Pitfalls course. There’s a couple of things going on here: The automation sends all contacts a “welcome email (Note Length “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 students all set for next week’s course, and motivate them to share it with pals.

The contact will start getting lessons the following Monday morning. If it is Friday and after 7pm, the contact missed out on enrollment for next week’s class. They’ll get the pump up e-mail the following Friday early 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 desire to send out the same email to every person on my list. I wish to send them the proper email for their level of engagement – Note Length “Active Campaign”. Note Length “Active Campaign”. Here’s the automation I use to promote an evergreen webinar: First it validates that they haven’t already bought the product I pitch in the webinar.

Then it sends out a series of emails to get them interested in the webinar, and to encourage them to sign up. If they sign up, they instantly struck the “Goal” toward completion of the webinar, and the automation ends. If they do not sign up, they get included to an automation promoting a rebroadcast of the webinar. Note Length “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 combination panel: I can add tags based upon whether the contact signed up, attended, missed, or based upon for how long they remained in the webinar. These tags can then activate automations within ActiveCampaign.

It costs me money, and it makes it more likely that my emails go to spam or Gmail’s promotions tab. People who don’t open my e-mails make it harder for other e-mails to get to the individuals who actually want them! The “Pro” plan of ActiveCampaign has lead scoring integrated in.

Here’s an automation I got 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, 1 month, 60 days, etc Each time they open an email, a separate automation eliminates them from this automation, eliminates all of those tags, and starts this automation over again.

This automation can be overwhelming at initially, and this is among those cases where I wish ActiveCampaign had a more out-of-the-box service. However, because you can do anything with ActiveCampaign, in some cases you need to build things from scratch. ActiveCampaign has an alternative to erase non-active subscribers, which I do not suggest.

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 series: I send out one e-mail asking if they still want to be subscribed, and briefly explaining 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 e-mail, they have actually currently been eliminated from the automation utilizing a separate automation) – Note Length “Active Campaign”.

The automation then unsubscribes them. My emails 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. Note Length “Active Campaign”. I used to include this tag when they clicked on a link, but when individuals do not have tracking on, it makes those links not work so reliably! I just send out a basic “do you still want my emails?” verification.
