Prepare your data before migration
It is recommended that you prior to your migration review and clean up youir data,so that you ensure that only the correct and updated (cleaned) data is transferred to MarketingPlatform. At MarketingPlatform you pay per Contact on your lists, and there is no need to transfer over any contacts that are not valuable to your business. Going through the following steps will be helpful to you:
1. Take a good look at all the contacts in your lists and evaluate whether they contribute positively to your business. If a contact on your lists has not responded to your emails for a prolonged period (I.e. 12-24 months), you should consider deleting them from your system before migration. Not least because inactive contacts worst case can trigger spam traps (read more here ). Start by sending an email to those you haven’t heard from for a long time and offer them something to re-activate them. Some contacts also respond to being told that they will be deleted from your list if they have not responded back within xx days.
2. Have you ensured that the subscribers on your lists have opted in to receiving emails from you?
3. Do you use marketing automation flows and segments, and which of them gives you the most value?
4. Export all statistics you have available and store them, so you don’t miss any historical data.
5. After the migration to MarketingPlatform, it may be a good idea to keep the old account on your previous email marketing platform open for a month or so, in order to have cross-reference and an extra opportunity to download or look-up data and history. Contact us if you have any questions about the way in which MarketingPlatform reports data through the statistics and analytics tool.
