This guide will show you how to create a campaign. SharpSpring enables you to easily track all of your marketing campaigns in order to view their success over time. You can track each lead’s progress from initial source through the entire sales process, even if it occurs off-line or takes months to close.

The following video will provide you with a brief overview of the campaign functionality in SharpSpring. However, if you prefer, a written step-by-step guide is available below the video for your convenience. 



Campaign Overview

SharpSpring's Version of a Campaign

A Campaign is any marketing initiative for which you would like to track results. These could include: a simple one-time email send, a trade show your company will attend or even an entire multi-channel communication strategy. When deciding what to track, it is best to be as granular as possible – you can always “tag” multiple small campaigns (single email blasts, events, webinars, etc.) together into a group to see the bigger picture. The process is easy to learn.

(Note for Salesforce.com users: When you create a campaign in SharpSpring, it is automatically imported into Salesforce.com.)
