Prospects <3

I know this guy who knows his stuff Stage-based marketing is the future. Breaking your marketing down to map to a consumer’s research cycle means understanding they will do research in multiple sessions, and at each session, be looking for different content. Best practice will suggest that you will need to engage with them in two or more different sessions, so you will need two or more stages. Content needs to be short and targeted. Having a single large document is no longer best practice. Content should be targeted to each stage of the research cycle, and be easily consumed in under five pages. - Mathew Sweezey, Marketing Evangelist, ExactTarget

Create an Email Template

Introduction to Email Templates •  Email templates are utilized in list emails, autoresponders, drip programs, and can enable a client’s sales team to send approved content to their prospects. •  Email templates can be created with your existing HTML, or by customizing a Pardot template, or created with the WYSIWYG interface.

Warming Up your IP Address

Email Sending Process

Warming Up an IP Address •  Ramp up your email sending over time to establish a great sending reputation. •  It is essential that you take the time to properly warm up their IP address before sending to list emails. •  Make sure that your DNS SPF record is up to date if your mailing IP has changed.

Warming Up an IP Address Start out by sending emails to your best and most active contacts. Having high delivery rates with your initial campaigns will help build their IP’s reputation.

Warming Up an IP Address •  It’s a best practice to split your initial mailing list up and spread it out over several days. We recommended splitting their lists into at least four sublists with limits of no more than 10,000 recipients in each sublist. •  Mail only one sublist per day over the first few days. If you have more than 40,000 recipients, you can spread out the mailing over more than four days.

Warming Up an IP Address Once you’re at a stable daily mail volume, it’s a best practice to gradually phase in any further increases. For example if the current mail volume is 10,000 messages per week, the mail volume should be ramped up as follows:

Email Preference Center

Email Preference Center •  The email preference center allows prospects to manage the types of emails they receive and opt into lists they find interesting or relevant. •  All accounts automatically include a default email preference page (represented by %%email_preference_center%% in emails and email templates). •  An account can have multiple custom email preference center pages.

Email Preference Page Sample Email Preference Center Page

Email Preference Page To access the default Email Preference Page, navigate to Marketing > Emails > Preferences Page

Email Preference Page More than one Email Preference Page can be implemented. All the created Email Preference Pages will be listed in the table.

Email Preference Page: Public Lists •  All Public Lists will be visible on your default email preference page. •  To make a list public, navigate to Marketing > Segmentation > select a list > Edit list > and enable the checkbox Public list: Display this list in the email preference center.

Email Preference Page: Public Lists •  For public lists, fill in a customerfriendly Label that will be displayed on the preference page. This is the list title that your client’s prospects will see (as opposed to the internally used list ‘Name’). •  You can also enter an optional Description to clarify what your client’s subscribers will receive (for example, the frequency in which they will receive messages). •  If the client has more than one email preference center, options will appear from the Select an email preference center dropdown.
