A campaign is a collection of marketing activities that includes emails, email workflows, web plugins, print media, online ad campaigns, social media posts or any combination of the above. You can use supplier-provided campaigns or create your own. By creating campaigns, you will be able to gather data in one place for all the marketing activity around a specific product or service.
The social media campaign is a series of automated social media posts that will be sent — or not — based on your marketing strategy. This allows you to send the right message to the right person at the right time.
FYI: Zift has specific times posts are released unless you specify otherwise.
