Marketing campaign with Publisher + BCM



  • 1. Creation of forms in Business Contact Manager
    I am trying to build a CRM system to manage my contacts and sales cycle in a small business. I have reviewed the functionality offered by BCM and find that it meets 99% of my workflow needs. Where it falls short is that it doesn't enable me to capture all the static data I want on my contact or on my opportunities. I have had a look at how you can create user defined fields and associated forms within Outlook and have found that it meets my data capture needs. Is there any way in which I can combine the ability I would like to know if it is possible to blend the flexibility of Outlook with the workflow capabilities of BCM. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Regards, Alan Alo
  • 2. Manual?
    I am trying to manage 500 contacts. Clearly 220 are active. I need to make calls at specific times. I need to send emails at specific times. I have appointments at specific times. I am having difficulties managing any of these let alone all of them. Is there a manual out there, or another posting site, that can provide me some relief from this madness and absolute waste of time?
  • 3. How do I display home phone numbers in Business Contacts?
    When I imported my contacts into my business contacts, there was no field for home numbers to be displayed. Is this not possible with Business Contacts?
  • 4. BCM - each contact showing all emails
    I have Microsoft Outlook 2003 - the business contacts are showing all my emails instead of just the history that should be there for that contact. Have clear the cache any other ideas. Thanks Rhonda.
  • 5. sales tracking
    I would like to be able to track my sales activity through BCM. Here's what I am trying to watch... 1. Product to be sold 2. Client product is to be sold to 3. Expected decision date 4. Probability to close 5. Close date I would like to be able to get all of this information (and probably more as time goes by) into a report in either Excel or Word to email to my manager. Thanks. T

Marketing campaign with Publisher + BCM

Postby SnVsZW4 » Wed, 28 Apr 2010 05:17:01 GMT

Dear all,

I am trying to use Microsoft Outlook with BCM 2.007 together with Publisher 
2007 to make a marketing campaign. I have created a *.pub file that I want to 
send to some customers. I make the next steps:

1.- On BCM New Marketing campaign.
2.- I select the receptors (customers) where I want to send the mailing.
3- I select combine with Publisher and select the desired file.
4.- When I click on start campaign the *.pub opens and I have to select 
again the receptors to write the wellcome line ?. Is it not possible to use 
what I already selected on BCM. This is not very confortable...

And second problem, the mails are sent correctly but on the BCM the 
Marketing campaign appears like "don't executed". The problem is that like 
this I can't follow the marketing campaign...

I don't understand it, I think that I have to be making something wrong but 
I don't know where I fail.

Any ideas will be wellcome.

1.BCM 2007 Publisher 2007 Marketing Campaign Merge Issue

I created a marketing campaign in Publisher, select start a marketing 
campaign (or start the marketing campaign from BCM first - same problem 
either way). 

In Publisher, I add the fileds for the merge and select send e-mail. 
Publisher does its thing, shows the 1st contact's name on the form, sends the 
email, thn diplays the publisher form with the field info displayed - no 
data. Emails go to the appropriate addresses, but the merge fields show the 
filed names - not the contact names.

How do I resolve this???



2.Office 2007 BCM Marketing Campaign Filter not displaying names

Perhaps someone can help with this: I am trying to create a marketing 
campaign in Outlook BCM 2007. I am experiencing three problems:

1. In the new campaign box, under (2) Who will see it, the options for 
"already created" and "other" are greyed out.

2. New campaign box, "review and filter", simple filter all options checked, 
under "advanced filter" all options are greyed out.

3. New campaign box, "review results" - this is the really big and very 
weird problem - I can see that a list of results is created, the tickboxes 
are ticked but no names are displayed - there is just a white space. If I 
double click on any of the rows, the record is displayed correctly. 
Even if I type a name in the search box on this page, the correct record is 
found but the name does not display in the preview box on the "review 
results" tab.

I'd be very grateful for any ideas.


3.Marketing Campaign with BCM

If I send out a campaign, to 350 persons in my contacts, does it put me in a 
junkmailfilter? Does it send emails plusivaly, like 20 emails at a time ore 
just all of them at the same time?


4.Mail Merge from BCM/Marketing Campaign

I am trying to do a mail merge from BCM and am having difficulties.
Here is my problem.  I am trying to create a marketing campaign.  To
get the correct list of contacts to send the letter to, I need to
filter the accounts.  When I get to the point to do the mail merge, I
don't get the contact name associated to the account, I get the
account customer name.  Therefore, when I do the merge, I get the
account customer name, not the contact name in my document.  How do I
get the contact name when I want to filter by account?  This seems to
be quite basic yet it doesn't appear to be possible.
