How do I integrate Campaign Monitor?

3840
  1. Select the Campaign Monitor tile.
  2. Click INTEGRATE CAMPAIGN MONITOR.
  3. Enter your Campaign Monitor credentials and click Continue.
The final step
Once you've added your Campaign Monitor account credentials to the Campaign Monitor tile in the Hub, please contact your Success Manager, or Lexer Support (support@lexer.io) to complete your Campaign Monitor set up and configuration.

What is a Campaign Monitor activation?

The Campaign Monitor activation allows you to securely send customer data from Lexer to your connected Campaign Monitor accounts. You can:

  • Create new Subscriber lists.
  • Update existing lists.
  • Update Custom Fields.
  • Create new Segments.

The activation is configured with two options, CDP Sync, and Create Segment. When activating to Campaign Monitor, you only ever need to select “Create Segment” which will push across your Lexer audience, create a Segment, and allow you to build your campaign. Once the Segment is created in Campaign Monitor, the CDP Sync will twice daily “sync” your contact data and populate the Segments within Campaign Monitor.

Configuring Campaign Monitor

You will need to make two custom fields on each List in Campaign Monitor you plan on sending data to.

First name Data type Add option
Lexer Segments Multiple Options (can select many) Test
Latest Lexer Audience Text N/A

When creating the Multiple Options field, be sure to populate it with at least one option otherwise Campaign Monitor will give you an error. Whatever option you add now, you can always remove it once you've started syncing your Lexer Segments.

The below GIF steps you through creating a new list and adding the necessary custom fields.

  1. Navigate to Lists and Subscribers.
  2. Select Create a new list.
  3. Give your list a name, leave it as single opt-in and click create list.
  4. Select Custom Fields.
  5. Add your two fields (Lexer Segments = Multi select, and Latest Lexer Audience = Text).
  6. You’re done!

Segments, Custom Fields, and Lists

Within Campaign Monitor, your contacts (known as subscribers) exist within Lists. Each List has its own unique Custom Fields, which in turn can influence customer Segments created within your List.

When delivering email campaigns, you select a List to send to, target a Segment within the List, and then personalize your email copy using Custom Fields to include your customers name, birthday, loyalty status, and so on.

Campaign Monitor terminology

Subscribers These are your contacts or Profiles within Campaign Monitor. Subscribers can be Active, Deleted, or Unsubscribed.
Lists A List in Campaign Monitor is a group of Subscribers. You can have multiple, and overlapping lists with Campaign Monitor. Lists will form the foundation of any automation within Campaign Monitor, and when creating a campaign you target Lists instead of individual Subscribers.
Custom field A dynamic field that contains data unique to individual Subscribers, like an Attribute within Lexer. This could be their first/last name, mobile number, loyalty ID, or loyalty balance to name a few. These fields become the building blocks for your Segments in Campaign Monitor.
Segment A Segment in Campaign Monitor is just a subset of contacts within a list. Custom fields on contacts are used to define your Segments. Your Lexer activation can create Segments of your contacts using your activation’s audience name.

How do I activate to Campaign Monitor?

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

  • Integrated your Campaign Monitor account with Lexer.
  • Configured your Campaign Monitor List.
  • Created an activation to Campaign Monitor (reach out to Lexer Support(support@lexer.io) if not).
  • Built your Segments in Lexer Segment.

Set and forget — auto-updating audiences

Lexer Activate permits you to automatically update your lists and contacts within Campaign Monitor. With this selected, Lexer will add or remove customers from your list, as customers 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 Campaign Monitor. 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.

Congratulations! Your Campaign Monitor should now be integrated and activated in Lexer. We've gone through what Campaign Monitor is, the type of integration it is, its benefits, and how to integrate and activate it. There's a lot of steps to follow here and if you feel stuck or confused please don't hesitate to reach out to Lexer Support (support@lexer.io) if you need any help.
