The ActiveCampaign Marketplace:
Prebuilt recipes to help automate your business

A couple weeks ago, we announced “recipes” — automation workflows you use as a starting point to build automated sales and marketing processes. It’s a huge time-saver and makes building automations easier than ever.

But, wouldn’t it be even better if you could:

  • Import a “done-for-you” follow-up sequence that’s created and optimized by an experienced marketing expert?
  • Leverage the same tested, proven automation workflows that the marketing automation authorities are using?
  • Get an automation built by the developer of an integration that fully leverages the features of both platforms so you don’t have to wonder if you’ve set it up right?

Announcing the ActiveCampaign Marketplace…

Now you can browse a directory of done-for-you automations created by:

  • Leading marketing automation experts
  • Experienced email marketing authorities and
  • The developers of apps that integrate with ActiveCampaign.

Using the Marketplace…

The pre-built automations in the Marketplace are categorized by your business goals:

Clicking into a product listing will bring up more detailed information including an overview of what it does and what its benefits are.

If you have a question about an automation, you can ask its creator in the comments section below each product listing.

Many of the products are available to you free of charge. If you see a free automation or template you’d like to use, you can add it to your account with a single click using the “Add to your account” button.

All automations you have purchased or added through the Marketplace will appear in the “Purchased” category of the Automation Recipe modal that appears when you click “New Automation.”

To import an automation you’ve added to your account through the Marketplace, select it by clicking it and then click “Create.” The Automation Import Wizard will begin taking you through the steps of customizing the automation to match the settings of your account.

As you go through the wizard, you’ll see notes that the creator has added to give you guidance. There is additional product documentation you can access by clicking on “My Purchases” (when you are logged into the Marketplace). From this page, you can also rate automations that you have purchased.

Next week we’ll have a post highlighting many of these automations and their creators. Until then, please feel free to browse the Marketplace and import any automations that seem useful. The creators have put a lot of work into them and we’re very impressed by the quality and usefulness of this first batch of automations.

The Marketplace is another example of how we are making powerful marketing and sales automation processes as accessible and simple as possible.

Now, you have access to a growing, categorized library of automation workflows built by experts. You can import any of these automations with a single click and quickly accomplish specific, measurable results in your business — from increasing revenue to automatically managing contacts.

We’ll continue to find new and innovative ways to make it even easier to use email marketing, marketing automation, and sales automation to make running an efficient, growing business.

  • This is so cool. I can’t wait to learn more and start running with it!

    • Brian Gladu

      Glad to hear it, David. Let me know if you have any questions. I’d love to help you get started.

  • Brian Gladu

    Glad to hear it, David. Let me know if you have any questions.

  • Congratulations team! This is super-exciting, and I know even though I’ve contributed a few automations myself I’m anxious to try out some of my fellow contributors’ genius workflows.

  • Just awesome – this is really going to take automation to the next level by making it more mainstream and accessible.

    I’ve taken a look at the marketplace and the screenshots of the automations are really small and blurry. Before adding anything to my account I would want to know exactly the pieces of the automation in crystal clear detail. Any plans to make the screenshot and contents of the automation more clear?

    • Brian Gladu

      Glad to hear you’re happy about this, Simon!

      The screenshots are created by the seller. They put a lot of thought, creativity, and testing into their automations so, in some situations, they don’t want to display such a detailed screenshot that someone could just use that to build the automation themselves! It’s to protect their IP.

      • Ahh of course! They are not all free.

        That makes sense to have a teaser image then. Cheers for the reply :)

    • What Brian said. If you could see everything what’s to stop someone from replicating it in its entirety?

  • I love it!
