Fundamental steps to design a journey

 

1. Click on the Templates section in the left panelDesign an email template to be included in the journey campaigns.

 

2. Go to the Journey section and create a new journey.

 

3. Once you are in the journey builder, start building your journey by selecting a trigger. 

Select a trigger 'Contact added to a list' to send campaigns when a contact sign up on your website and gets added to a list

 

4. We can use various options on the left panel to build our journey. For example, we can start with the Send Campaign. For that click and drag the Send Campaign option from the left panel.

In the Right Panel select the email template that you’ve designed to continue with the next steps.

5. Select a template, then fill up the relevant details to create a campaign and 'Save' to continue.

 

6. You can choose to add Conditions/Activity in the journey as discussed below

AOpened- Drag and drop Opened from the left panel and Click on Configure Conditions to adjust Wait Time from the right panelThis means If someone opens the on-boarding email, then after that much wait time , a new campaign (e.g. an email with a demo video link) can be started.

You can also use different campaigns depending on whether AMP or HTML email has been opened by selecting Different Ports for AMP and HTML in the Configure Conditions

 

BClicked - It is dragged and dropped in a similar way like Opened. In Clicked condition when a user clicks on a particular link in the received email, a next mail (campaign) can be sent to them after some delay.

Also different campaigns can be launched through different link(s) in the mail. This can be done by ‘Specific URL Click’ as shown below . 

Rule 1, Rule 2, Rule 3 are the URLs which can trigger different campaigns or in this case add the contacts into different contact lists.

C. Submitted This can be used in a similar fashion as described above. It also has ‘Wait Time’ and ‘Specific Submission’ to trigger different campaigns as required.

‘Specific Submission’ creates some conditions/logic on the data received from the submitted form. Different labels ( Rule 1, Rule 2, Rule 3) are assigned to the conditions and related campaigns can be launched as shown below.

For example  - Based on 'Specific Submission' rules the contact's description would be updated with a value of 'Satisfied', 'Unsatisfied', 'Moderately Satisfied'. 

 

7. After setting up the whole journey, click on Publish in the top right corner.

 

 

Trigger journeys through API/Webhook or manually by adding specific contacts

 

After Publishing the Journey. Click on 'Add Contacts' to either send the journey to an Existing Contacts list, or by Uploading Contacts through a new CSV file, or triggering the journey by calling the API.

Detailed documentation for triggering a journey through API can be found here.
