Add recommended campaigns

Building email campaigns is a hassle, so we’ve done the legwork for you—we’ve built ready-made campaigns that are proven to generate hot leads. These automated campaigns allow your salespeople to connect with more prospects and determine where it’s best to spend their time.

To add a recommended campaign:

  1. Go to Partner Center > Marketing > Campaigns. 
  2. Go to the Recommended Campaigns tab.

  6. Edit the campaign details as desired. The campaign must be in a Draft Status to allow editing.

    • This adds the campaign to the Sales & Success Center, where your salespeople can send it to their prospects and customers. The campaign can also be added to an automation, or can be sent via bulk action after publishing.

  6. If you selected Add Snapshot Report, the campaign will automatically create or refresh a Snapshot Report for your prospect. If any of the emails in the campaign link to the Snapshot Report, this event ensures the information in the report is up-to-date.
  7. Continue adding events until you have finished creating the campaign.
  8. Adjust the "days before starting" or "days before previous event."
    We recommend the following email frequencies:
    Customer Acquisition: lower frequency (1 email/week)
    Product Adoption: higher frequency (3 emails/week)
    Product Upsell: lower frequency (1 email/week)

  11. Click the blobid13.png icon and select Preview > Send test email.

Preview and test your campaigns

Email clients—such as Gmail, Apple Mail, and Outlook—display emails differently. As such, we recommend that you preview and test your emails by sending them to your own email address or, better yet, a third-party testing tool. You need to make sure everything looks great and all your links are working.

Note: In order for a Test Campaign to be sent successfully there needs to be an account linked to the User receiving the email.

To test your emails from the campaign page:

  1. Click Preview under the first email.

  2. Click Send Yourself a Test Email.

  4. Scroll Next to the following emails, if applicable. Click Send Test for each email.

To publish the campaign from the campaign page:

  • Click Publish.
