How to Personalize a Campaign Activity


A campaign is a collection of marketing activities that includes emails, email workflows, web plugins, print media, online ad campaigns, or any combination of the above. You can use supplier-provided campaigns or create your own. By creating campaigns, you will be able to gather data in one place for all the marketing activity around a specific product or service.

The more you personalize your content, the more likely the recipients are to respond. In the majority of email templates, you have the ability to edit, revise, and personalize emails with your business information and other preferences. Please note that personalization options are not available in every template. Once you have edited details and personalized your email, you have the ability to preview your changes in desktop, mobile, or tablet view. Once everything looks good, send a Test email to yourself. This gives you the opportunity to see how your users will see your email.

  • Partner Default Fields - Partner Default Fields are the values that Zift123 will apply as the default value for any activity, in any campaign, across the application. Administrators define these fields during system set-up. The ability to save a partner default field value as the new default is available to any user with the Marketing user role. If the field is a partner default field, the option to save as a default will always appear. If the field value is saved as the default, then you will not need to enter the data every time. Once you save a partner default field value as the default, then all subsequently activated activities will default to that value, unless a new value is provided. The Save as Default value only applies to current and future campaign and activity activations. It does not apply to previously activated campaigns or activities. Recent Values allows you to toggle between the default and previously used values or to create new values.  2017-08-16_Personalizer.jpgPartner default fields are set per activity, per supplier. They can vary from one supplier to another, from one web plugin to another, and from one email to another. Here are some examples of frequently configured partner default fields:
      1. Company Logo
      2. Value Propositions
      3. Company Contact
      4. Social Media URLs
  • Additional Pages - Your email may have landing and confirmation pages. Your web plugin may have a form or confirmation form. All of these additional pages can be personalized.  To edit the additional pages, select Personalize.  Click the Landing and/or Confirmation tabs at the top of the activity template.2017-09-20_PersonalizeLandingConfirmation.png
  • Show HTMLShow HTML allows you to make a copy of the raw HTML used to build the email template. You can use the raw HTML to rebuild the email in another tool. You can also rebuild the activity in the Create Your Own Campaign section of the Zift123 account for further personalization.
  • Test -  Use Test to send out a preview activity before you send an actual campaign out to a contact list. This allows you to see how the activity will look/function once it is sent out to a contact list.
    • TEST mailings do no count against your partner credits. 
    • Subject lines of the mailing will not include TEST.
