I am looking for validation on the best way to set up my triggered smart campaign. Is there a better way to do this?
Know user visits three unique non-gated web pages that automatically sends a dedicated email
- I added three 'visits web page' triggers with three unique URL's for each
- Wait one hour
- Send email
Each trigger will fire as soon as the person qualifies. So right now, this isn't fitting your spec at all - the person wil get 3 emails.
There's no built-in way to trigger in Marketo on the 3rd unique link. You can trigger on the 3rd click (Min. Number of Times) and use a multivalued list of matches, but that does not guarantee uniqueness among the links in a the list: it could be 3 clicks on the same link.
If this is for a very specific purpose - not meant to be generalized for any link on your site - you could use DateTime fields to stamp when they visit each. (DateTime is superior to Boolean as it gives you a built-in audit trail.)
Otherwise, such complex logic - though you might not have realized it was "complex"! - is best managed using a webhook.
Thanks for your reply Sanford!
Here's an idea.
- Visits web page trigger = three unique URLs
- Visits web page filter = three unique URLs
