Lead scoring refers to the metrics you use to determine how interested a potential customer is in your product or service.  Creating a lead scoring model is a two part process. First, you must create your scoring rules and then you use those scoring rules to create a scoring model.

To create a lead scoring model, click on the “Setup” tab and then click on “scoring”. 

If you want the platform to measure and grade contact activity, select "Contacts".  If you want the platform to measure and grade the activity of other users on the system, select "users".

  

  • Under the lead scoring section you would see 5 tabs:

Scoring Rules: allows you specify  events which indicate contact interest (e.g. visiting your website, opening a specific email, etc)

Scoring Models: allows you to assign numerical scores to the events specified in “Scoring Rules”, for example, I might give someone who lives in my area, opened a promotional email, and clicked on the link within the email a score of 50.

Score Depreciation: will allow you to specify how much a contact’s score will decrease due to inactivity.

Triggersallows you specify which scores indicate high and low levels of interest.

CRM: will allow you to specify the level of interest necessary for a contact to be automatically pushed into your CRM account.

Choose the type of media that you wish to make a lead scoring rule for.

2015-07-02_0936.png

For this tutorial, we will select “Email”.

2015-07-02_0938.png

The “Activity” menu has two options:

Any activity: assigns a score to your contacts if any emails sent to them are opened.

Specific activity: only assigns a score if they opened up an email that you specified.

 

2015-07-02_0940.png

For this tutorial, we will select “Specific Activity”.

2015-07-02_0941.png

If you want your a contact to be assigned a score only once, regardless of whether or not they repeat the activity, click on the “Unique” option.

2015-07-02_0943.png

Use the “Email Activity Type” drop-down menu to select the rule on which your scoring would be based

2015-07-02_0944.png

For this tutorial we will select “Any of the following emails opened”.

2015-07-02_0947.png

Because the selected activity type says “Specific Activity”, we need to select a specific email media. To do this, click on the “Manage Selected Items” link.

2015-07-02_0948.png

Select all emails that you wish the rule to apply to, and then click “Done”.

2015-07-02_0950.png

In this example, a contact a would get a score if he or she opened any one of the three emails selected

2015-07-02_0952.png

To remove an email from the list, click on the “X” icon.

2015-07-02_0953.png

Once you’re done, give your scoring rule a unique name, description & click on “Save”

2015-07-02_0956.png

Similarly you can create scoring  rules for “Web”, “Form”, “Ext. Sites”, “Ext. Links”, and “Data”.

2015-07-02_0958.png

Weballows you create scoring rules for web materials created in AMP

Formallows you to create scoring rules for forms created in in AMP

Ext. Sites: allows you to make rules for websites not created in AMP

Ext. Links: allows you to make rules based on links embedded in other media (such as blog posts or email)

Data: allows you to make rules based on the data of your contact records

To edit a scoring rule that you have already created, simply click on it in the scoring rules section.

 

To delete an a rule, select it, and then click on the trash icon.

2015-07-02_1006.png

2015-07-02_1008.png

 

 

This will bring up on a new menu called “Lead Scoring Models”. Click on the “add” button of this menu.

2015-07-02_1012.png

 

This will bring up the following screen:

 

The “How would you like to score” menu offers two options:

score on fit model

score on activity (depreciated over time)...”.

Choosing “score on fit model” will make the value of the score constant. Choosing “score on activity” will make the value of a score decrease over time.

2015-07-02_1015.png

Score on fit model

For this section of the tutorial we will select “score on fit model”.

2015-07-02_1016.png

 

On the left side, you will see all the rules created under the “Scoring Rules” section


On the left side are all activities that could potentially be used to earn a score.

2015-07-02_1314.png

To specify which activities are necessary to earn a score, simply drag the activities into the box.

2015-07-02_1324.png

To specify whether the contact must complete all of the activities, any single activity, or some combination of activities, click on the “Advanced” link.

2015-07-02_1346.png

To specify that a contact must complete all activities to earn a score, write “and” between each activity number. For example, this box, to receive any score at, the contact would have to both live in Pittsburgh and have opened any email.

2015-07-02_1347.png

To specify that a contact can earn score by completing any of the activities, write an “or” between each number. For example, in this box, the contact could either open any email, or be located in Pittsburgh to receive the score.

2015-07-02_1350.png

To make specific combinations of activities necessary to earn a score, place the activity numbers in parentheses.

For example, under these conditions, a contact could earn a score if he or she opened any email and filled out a demo form, works in Pittsburgh and is a trade show lead, opened any email and is a trade show lead, or works in Pittsburgh and filled out a demo form.


Once you’re done creating your conditions,  give it a score of your choice

2015-07-02_1352.png

Give you scoring condition a unique name, description & click on “save”

2015-07-02_1031.png


Similarly you can create many more conditions under the scoring model by clicking on “add” button

2015-07-02_1403.png

Give you scoring model a unique name, description & click on “save”

2015-07-02_1405.png

Your scoring model is now ready

2015-07-02_1401.png

Score on activity (depreciate over time)

 

For this part of the tutorial we will select “score on activity (depreciated over time)...”.

2015-07-02_1046.png

Drag & drop your rules in the provided box

Now from the “What would you like to score on” drop-down menu, select the activity based on which you would like the score of your contacts to depreciate

2015-07-02_1409.png

 

For example, let’s select “any email opened”

2015-07-02_1410.png

For this tutorial, we will assign it a score of 10.

2015-07-02_1412.png

Threshold limit refers to the highest number of activities that can be considered unique for a particular contact,  for demonstration purposes, we will set the threshold limit to “5”.

2015-07-02_1413.png

Click on “save” to save the scoring model

2015-07-02_1414.png

 

Score Depreciation Tab

Now click on the “score depreciation” tab

2015-07-02_1108.png

 

For this tutorial We will set the number of days to “10” & % depreciation to “%25”. To save your depreciation values, click on “Apply Depreciation Settings”

2015-07-02_1109.png

Let’s say one of your contacts Joe, opens an email and is located in Pittsburgh, as per the conditions set by us, Joe would get a score on +100 on September 1st. However the score of Joe would depreciate by 25% after 10 days of the activity we selected in the “what would you like to score on” menu. Therefore, on the 10th of September Joe’s score would get depreciated to “75”.  If Joe looks at another email on the 11th of September, his score would again shoot up by 100 making his score +175. However, after 10 days, i.e. September 21’st, his score would have depreciated again by 25%.

Triggers

 

Triggers allow you to determine the Interest Level of your leads based on their scores. To view your triggers, click on the “Triggers” tab

2015-07-02_1117.png

By default the score of the interest levels range from 0 to 400 but you can change them as per your requirements

2015-07-02_1115.png

For example, let’s change the range to

Not sure: 0-99

Low: 100-199

Med: 200-299

High: 300-399

Hot: 400+

2015-07-02_1118.png

When you are done, click on “apply triggers”.

2015-07-02_1119.png

  • Now any contact who has a score within the range of 0-99 will get an interest level of “Not Sure”

2015-07-02_1551.png

2015-07-02_1121.png

Anyone from 100-199 will get an interest level of “Low”.

2015-07-02_1607.png

2015-07-02_1557.png

Anyone scoring between 200 and 299 will show an interest level of “Medium”

2015-07-02_1610.png

2015-07-02_1602.png

Scores between and 300-399 will get an interest level of “High”

2015-07-02_1613.png

2015-07-02_1604.png

 

And finally, contacts who have a score of 400 or above will receive an interest level of “Hot”

2015-07-02_1608.png

2015-07-02_1605.png

CRM

To program the system to auto-push the contacts with a specific interest level to your CRM, click on the “CRM” tab.

2015-07-02_1202.png

From the “crm push” drop-down menu, select the interest level of your choice. For example, let’s select “High”

 

2015-07-02_1203.png

Once done, click on “Apply CRM Settings”

2015-07-02_1204.png

Now all your contacts with an interest level of “High” will be automatically pushed to your CRM account that has been integrated with the system
