Active Campaign to Pardot Migration For an Real Estate Investing Company

About The Company:

Our client is a company that invests in various real estate asset classes, providing stable returns and aiming to create generational wealth for its members. The company also emphasizes building a positive impact through nonprofit partnerships and sustainable property management.

Customer Challenges:

The client faces several challenges with growing business, including:

  • Disparate Data Ecosystem: The client faced challenges with data fragmentation across different platforms, which made maintaining data consistency and accuracy difficult.
  • Legacy Campaigns and Workflows: Transitioning existing campaigns and automation workflows from ActiveCampaign to Pardot without disrupting ongoing marketing activities was a significant concern.
  • Integration Complexity: Ensuring a seamless integration between Pardot and Salesforce CRM while preserving data integrity posed technical challenges.
  • Assets Creations: A key task was creating multiple email templates and forms in Pardot to ensure  a smooth migration between the systems was a key task.
  • Opportunities Lists: Generating an opportunity list of contacts in Pardot for marketing purposes posed another challenge.

Solutions Implemented:

We assessed their problems and suggested  transitioning to their existing campaigns and automation workflows from ActiveCampaign to Pardot. To inform the migration approach, we thoroughly analyzed existing Active Campaign data, campaigns, workflows, email templates, and forms.  Significant effort was put into scrubbing and organizing data to ensure accuracy before migrating to Pardot.

  • Phased Migration Approach: The migration was carried out in phases, including data, campaigns, workflows, email templates, and forms, to minimize disruptions to ongoing operations.
  • Integration with Salesforce CRM: Close collaboration with Salesforce CRM administrators ensured a seamless integration between Pardot and Salesforce, enabling unified data management.
  • Configuration and Integration: Pardot instance was configured, and bi-directional sync with Salesforce CRM was established.
  • Campaign Setup and Testing: Existing campaigns and workflows were replicated in Pardot, and rigorous testing  ensured functionality and data integrity.
  • Lists Creation: Multiple dynamic and static lists were created in Pardot for prospect segmentation.
  • Forms Creation: Utilizing Pardot's form builder required javascript for form creation, a shift from Active Campaign's specific form builder.
  • Training and Support: The marketing and sales teams received extensive training sessions and ongoing support to facilitate a smooth adoption of Pardot.

Results Achieved:

This migration resulted in significant results for the client . Some of them are:

  • Streamlined Operations: Consolidating marketing efforts in Pardot and integrating with Salesforce CRM enhanced operational efficiency and alignment between sales and marketing teams.
