What is ActiveCampaign?

ActiveCampaign is a customer experience automation platform that helps businesses build and scale personalized customer experiences across multiple channels, not just email, and through the entire customer lifecycle.

ActiveCampaign offers a cloud-based automated solution for marketing and sales activities that combines transactional email and email marketing, marketing automation, e-commerce marketing, and CRM for powerful segmentation and personalization across social, email, messaging, chat, and text.

How does ActiveCampaign help businesses?

With its products and features, here is how ActiveCampaign helps businesses thrive.

Reach & engage new leads

Every marketer’s goal is to reach new leads. Not only that, they need to reach the right leads, those who are most likely to convert and become their best customers. ActiveCampaign helps businesses reach & engage their audience and attract the right potential customers.

Nurture & educate leads

ActiveCampaign helps marketers plan what information they want to gather about their audience. By getting to know them, marketers can show them exactly what they are most interested in.

Convert & close customers

When the time is right, ActiveCampaign helps marketers spot the leads with the highest intent and make them the offer that will convert them into customers.

Support & grow your business

Once leads have turned into customers, ActiveCampaign helps marketers keep them coming back for more and turn them into advocates that will help grow their business.

Benefits of using ActiveCampaign integrations

Nowadays, marketers have to deal with a number of different tools in order to run their business, each with its own platform and login information. It’s clear how impractical and time-consuming it is to keep moving from one platform to the other, and this is when integrations come in.

Integrations are essential because they allow marketers to connect different software and automate tasks across them. ActiveCampaign integrations help marketers create their own interconnected marketing ecosystem where all tools are communicating with each other and sharing data automatically, so that they are free to get things done as quickly as possible.

LinkedIn ActiveCampaign integrations

Let’s take a look at the most popular LinkedIn – ActiveCampaign integrations provided by LeadsBridge.

LinkedIn Lead Gen Forms + ActiveCampaign integration

LinkedIn Lead Gen Forms are a way to collect more quality leads with LinkedIn Ads through pre-filled forms. When they click on an ad, users are not redirected to an external landing page, but a form opens up on LinkedIn directly, with the users’ info already filled out. Users only need to submit the form. LinkedIn Lead Gen Forms reduce friction and allow advertisers to increase conversions.

Connecting LinkedIn Lead Gen Forms with ActiveCampaign integrations allows marketers to reach out to potential customers as soon as they fill out the form on LinkedIn and work on them with their offer right away.

This not only increases the chances for successful conversions but also eliminates the need for marketers to manually download lead data from LinkedIn and upload it to ActiveCampaign, giving them the time and freedom to focus on getting the leads through the funnel.

ActiveCampaign + Linkedin Matched Audiences

LinkedIn Matched Audiences allow you to use the lead data you already have inside your CRM to target and re-engage your best customers with retargeting ads.

Based on actions they have already taken with your brand (for example: visiting a page, clicking on a product, looking at the pricing), you can decide to retarget them with specific ads that you know they’ll be interested in.

Connecting LinkedIn Matched Audiences with ActiveCampaign allows you to use your segments and lists to automatically create custom audiences and run retargeting campaigns on LinkedIn.

Moreover, thanks to ActiveCampaign integrations by LeadsBridge, your audiences are always updated and law compliant. New contacts coming in are automatically added to the audience, but also, if a contact decides to opt out of your list, LeadsBridge will automatically remove it from the custom audience, making it easy to exclude both users whom you do not want to target anymore and users who do not want to be targeted.
