I'm trying to build a single stream engagement program from scratch and I'm a bit of a noob. I was wondering if I could get some guidance on whether or not what I'm doing make sense.
Here is what I have so far.
For the engagement program I used the Nurture channel tied to Engagement. For the program within, I used an Email channel tied to Default where the status steps are sent, opened, clicked and converted. This is reflected in the smart campaigns within the email program which will track these status changes.
The Add to Nurture campaign will define our target group and add them to this nurture program. The Send Email campaign will be added to the stream(as part of the program) and drive delivery of the related email. It will check if the recipient is a member of the nurture program or not and sent the email accordingly.
It's a pretty simple engagement program consisting of one stream and 5 or so emails. Am I on the right track? Are there any improvements that anyone can suggest?
Solved! Go to Solution.
not really, no. If you were to use that you would be basically creating a manual engagement program that is just sending weekly batches, as opposed to the engagement program structure itself. You'll want to let the streams and cadences control who gets what, and when, in order to save yourself a lot of work. Just drop in your email to the stream and it will be good to go.
No, the sends are controlled by the nurture program. I set calendar reminders to review the program the day before the send. Whoever qualifies for entry to the stream will receive the first email.
With the change JD suggested, you're off to a great start!
P.S. Don't forget to activate your content when you add to the steam and set the send frequency! Feel free to share your stream when you add the content. Happy to offer support.
