A campaign is a collection of marketing activities that include emails, email workflows, web plugins, print media, digital advertising, or a combination of these activities. A campaign can be either supplier-provided, or you can create your own campaign. By creating campaigns, you will be able to gather data in one place for all the marketing activities around a specific product or service.
Partners have the ability to request and activate custom activity requests from agencies using Zift123 if the supplier is offering this solution. These requests will take the form of an order or a quote. When the order is placed the partner can select to use available MDF or Self Pay.
In this article, we review how to place an order or request services from a marketing agency.
