  • Campaign name: Label the campaign as something that's easily recognizable. If you don't it'll default to "Draft (Mar 2nd 22)"
  • Status: If it's set to "Off", the campaign is inactive. To save a draft of a campaign, simply flip the status to "Off" and publish the campaign. Once you flip this to "Live", the campaign is active and will send at the selected publish time
  • Archived: Toggle this to "Yes" to archive a campaign. This will also render it inactive or "Off"

This is where you actually build out your campaigns. Text message and Browser push notifications are ready for use when you first log in to the platform but there is some additional setup needed to send Email and/or Native Push messages which we'll go over soon. Use these messaging tools individually or in tandem as part of our Waterfall feature

Selecting an audience for your campaign

Whether you want to send a message to your entire customer base or to a hyper-specific audience you created, this is where you pick that audience

Click Please select one or more audiences and a dropdown will appear with all your audiences. You can select more than one audience and if a customer appears in more than one audience, they'll only receive the message once

To send a campaign to your entire customer base, select All subscribed users

Customers attempting to send to +5000 contacts should consider breaking down an audience into smaller, more targeted, subsets to avoid carrier blocking. For more information on this, check out the How to break up a big audience? question in our FAQ section below

Click Filter more to find options to filter by individual stores and/or exclude audiences from specific campaigns.

Alpine IQ's Waterfall Technology

To solve cannabis censorship, we created a new technology walled Waterfall

This feature gives you the ability to set up backup messaging channels that trigger when a message is blocked, filtered, or errors to ensure the best chance of getting the message to your customer. To read more about how it all works, see the How does Waterfall work? article in the FAQ section below

  • Enable intelligent timing: turning this on will send the message to your customer within 1 hour of their average purchase time. Find additional details on this tool on the Alpine IQ YouTube page
  • Sent to [ # ] contacts max per day: This limits the number of contacts this campaign can send to in a day. This is most commonly used when setting up raffle/lottery campaigns. Learn more about HERE
  • Set a custom attribution window: Customers "convert" when taking action on a campaign and making a purchase. The default conversion window is 14 days but if you'd like a smaller conversion window, update that number here.
  • Gift [ # ] points to every contact this campaign sends to: Any customer in the target audience of this campaign will receive the number of points you input here.
  • Trigger when a cart is abandoned: Flip this toggle to trigger a message only when an online shopping cart is abandoned. Feature availability is dependent on your e-commerce provider. Find more information about abandoned cart campaigns HERE
  • Trigger upon every purchase event: Flip this toggle to trigger a message every time a customer makes a purchase. If left on indefinitely, this could lead to higher unsubscription rates as frequent buyers will receive this message every time they make a purchase. Find additional information on post-order messages HERE

How do I set up Waterfall?

Our priority channel system actively monitors events from your audiences such as email and app opens, SMS carrier blocking, and opt-in status changes to maintain an accurate picture of where your audience is reachable for messaging. Waterfall will automatically redirect the message to the next available channel in the priority list in real-time.

To set Campaign channel priority:

1.Open the Campaign Builder

2. Draft messages using at least two of the messaging tools

3. Set the priority using the arrows on the right

Document image

4. Continue building the campaign as you normally would

If a customer is only opted in to the 2nd priority message channel, AIQ will automatically skip the first channel and send the message via the next channel. In the example above, if a customer is subcribed to Email messages but opted out of Text messages, Waterfall will skip Text message and send an email

How does Waterfall campaign reporting work?

Head to the Marketing section in your AIQ dashboard and click Campaign reports. At the top of the page you'll see a cumulative breakdown of all your campaigns but you can also see breakdown by individal campaign
