Just found this and thought some of you may find it very useful in getting going with ActiveCampaign. Althought AC is super easy to get started with, theres a lot of powerful features that can easily slip under the radar.. This course is a good primer for everyone until we create our own ActiveCampaign deepdive module 😉
Thanks Andy: I’ll check it out.Just the topic I am needing. If any one knows any active campaign info or templates that are applicable to teachers and courses, please let us know.
Hi Andy: I was just looking at Active Campaign again and realizing I had planned on sending the workbook/journal part of my course out as a pdf every two weeks. I had imagined I could do that with the auto responder-but it seems it will only take one attachment per campaign, under 1 mb. I probably will have 10-25 pages of journal material each time and a lot of pictures. Any ideas here, Andy, Bradley, or other people sending out information in a non-electronic way? What is the easiest, hassle-free method? And is there a way to get Active Campaign to do this? Thanks Laurie
Hey @laurieszott, you can always create a “Download PDF” button on your lesson pages, much like the ones we have on ours’. Then you just use Active Campaign as a way to keep people enrolled and getting them clicking through to the lessons. Make sense?
You don’t need the PDF’s to be embedded in the actual emails if you don’t have to.
Any other suggestions @andyfreist ?
I recommend you don’t attach files to emails. The best method is to upload the files/PDFs to your course site, then use the emails to send people to the right page for the download. Just like what we do with GEA and include a download button on the page, which links to the file. Make sense?
ActiveCampaign is by far my favorite reasonably priced Sales/Marketing/CRM for WordPress. Why? It does everything that the enterprise CRMs do except custom forms. What are custom forms? When you are collecting custom data (What is your learning style? vs What is your First Name) then we often like to group them onto forms so that the information is easy to retrieve later. ActiveCampaign can collect all the data, it’s just a bit mess on the admin side of things. I think they are rolling out forms now, if they haven’t done it already. Very cost effective for people with small email lists – pricing is by number of contacts. The email creation tool isn’t awesome, but you can integrate with something else or muddle through it. The email automatons are spot on and the WP integrations are amazing.
