How to Deliver a High-Value Automated Lead Gen Campaign

How to Deliver a High-Value Automated Lead Gen Campaign

These slides are part of a 3-hour masterclass workshop delivered at iMEDIA 2019. The workshop was hands on, using a Google Doc workbook available here: As the workshop jumped back and forth between these slides, the Google Doc workbook, websites, and MailChimp, the deck is not comprehensive to the entire workshop. But, combined with the workbook, the content is still useful.

    MailChimp Gonna talk for a bit, then we’ll whip through

    a quick Automation campaign together. First: 1. Automation Campaigns 2. Triggers & forms 3. Tags
  9. 18.

    Automation Campaigns • 1 campaign = a sequence of multiple

    emails, triggered by an action (e.g. sign-up to a list from a form on a certain page) • 1 email = 1 “post” or “chapter” or “article” in your content plan, plus occasional CTA emails and round-ups • You can (should?) have multiple automation campaigns under your larger marketing campaign, but maybe start with the one.
  10. 19.

    Recommendations 1. Use Signup location for your Trigger. a. Set

    up hidden field b. Edit embed code to reference specific page (e.g. [Campaign]LandingPage”) c. Embed form on proper page (/campaign-landing-page) 2. Set trigger in automation campaign to match edited field value of form (e.g. “[Campaign]LandingPage”) 3. Use Tags to mark captured emails as leads
