Iterable

Connect your Iterable account with Lexer

Connecting your Lexer and Iterable account will allow Lexer to start capturing customer engagement data like email opens, clicks, and subscriber statuses. To connect your Iterable account with Lexer you must first create a Webhook within Iterable. Once your webhook is created, you will generate an API key within Iterable, and save that back into Lexer completing the connection.

What is the Iterable activation?

Iterable is a growth marketing platform, with a focus on email, SMS, in-app and web push marketing communications.

Connecting your Iterable account with Lexer allows you to create new lists, and update existing ones for marketing purposes. When you make a new list or update an existing one, the Lexer activation will append a boolean field to each Profile within that list, marking them as either in (TRUE) or out (FALSE) of the Segment.

Send a Segment to Iterable

Before you get started, make sure you’ve done the following:

Activate and make a new list in Iterable

  1. Click ACTIVATE NEW AUDIENCE
  2. Select the appropriate Iterable account for this Activation
  3. Add your Segment(s)
  4. Update the audience name and tag as required (the audience tag will become your new list’s name)
  5. Set the list to auto-update if needed
  6. Set the appropriate list action. In most cases, leave it on Maintain list
  7. Use the drop-downs to map the Attributes you’d like to enrich in Iterable
  8. Agree to terms, and click Send Audience

Set and forget – auto-updating audiences

Lexer Activate permits you to automatically update your audiences within Iterable. With this selected, Lexer will add or remove customers from your audience as they enter and leave your Segment.

Okay I’ve sent my audience, what next?

The moment your activation has been confirmed as sent in Activate, you’ll see records begin to update in Iterable. We’ll send you an email to let you know once an audience has been sent - the time this takes will vary, depending on the size of the audience.
