It is great that people are filling out your forms, calling your company, etc ... how do you tell the sales people about this wonderful work that you are doing as a marketer? Sales Notifications!
When a form is filled out, several things happen. First, the contact in the ActiveDEMAND DB is created/updated with the form information. Now two workflows are executed:
- Autoresponder (this workflow controls the message sent to your prospect) Workflow
- Lead Notification Workflow (notifies you/your sales team about the form fill).
For those with Small Business Marketer, Email Marketer products
It is important to note, this is an internal list. Only people who are employees of your account (i.e. are in the list Administration->Account Settings->Employees) and are in the Sales Distribution list will receive notifications when a conversion occurs.
Steps to add someone to the Sales Distribution List
- If not already in the account, add the contact as an employee of the account (Administration->Account Settings->Employees-[Add Employee])
- Edit the employee contact (click the pencil icon by the employee contact in the Employee list)
- Click on the Contact Details tab
- Scroll down to Contact Lists
- Click 'Add To List'
- Select Sales Distribution
For those with Corporate Marketer or who are Agency Partners
Note: The Sales Notifications workflow is only editable if you have a Corporate Marketer package or if you are an Agency Partner. You can still control who gets leads using the Sales Distribution contact list, but the distribution workflow is read-only for all package types below Corporate Marketer
Note: If your Sales Distribution List is empty, every time someone fills out a form, your technical contact will get an email stating that an error has occurred (https://support.activedemand.com/support/solutions/articles/12000033403-how-to-resolve-error-emails).
