Create Cutting Edge Online Courses with LifterLMS and ActiveCampaign

Have you ever wondered what an online learning system would look like that was so engaging your current students would stay engaged until the end? Have you ever wondered how to increase sales into your learning platform through email marketing, sales and marketing automation, and intelligent automated follow ups?
You can have this ideal powerful system when you combine LifterLMS with ActiveCampaign.
LifterLMS + ActiveCampaign solve the same problem, but in 2 different areas.
These software solutions help small business entrepreneurs reduce overwhelm and chaos from disjointed software tools strung together. They are all-in-one solutions that are intuitive and powerful and are designed to get real world results.
I like to say that these tools scale the human touch with robotics.
LifterLMS does this in the online education space for online courses, membership sites or learning management systems.
ActiveCampaign does this through marketing and sales automation, while also giving you a powerful small business CRM (Customer Relationship Management) platform.

What Will LifterLMS and ActiveCampaign Do Together?

In addition to all the powerful things LifterLMS and ActiveCampaign do separately, it gets really interesting where they overlap in the LifterLMS ActiveCampaign Integration.
There is a segment of the LifterLMS user base that are super passionate about ActiveCampaign. I don’t blame them, because we at LifterLMS use ActiveCampaign for our email marketing and CRM and LOVE it! Our community members that want deeper integration with ActiveCampaign have told us what they want the integration to look like and how it should function. We’re currently crowdfunding on Kickstarter the development costs of this integration so we can devote resources to it. Keep reading to discover how you can benefit from this and see the no-brainer way to get involved.
Here are the 2 main ways the LifterLMS ActiveCampaign integration will work:
1) When a user purchases or enrolls in a course or membership, the contact details are added or updated in ActiveCampaign
This sets up your student and customer database in ActiveCampaign and logs what courses and/or memberships the user is in. This is the first key step in being able to do advanced engagements, sales, and marketing. You need your LMS data synced with your CRM.
If you want to send an email broadcast to all your students, now you can with ActiveCampaign!
If you want to send an email broadcast message to only students in certain courses, now you can do that too with ActiveCampaign.
2) Apply or remove an ActiveCampaign tag based on user behavior in the online course or learning management system
LifterLMS has a unique engagement system where once a behavior trigger happens, you could set up certain things to happen like awarding an achievement badge, delivering a certificate, or you could apply a tag in ActiveCampaign. These are the behavior triggers in LifterLMS:

  • Lesson completed
  • Section completed
  • Course completed
  • Course purchased
  • Membership purchased
  • New user registration
  • Days since user last logged in
  • Course track completed

Applying or removing a tag in ActiveCampaign is where it gets interesting. A tag is a way to trigger an automation in ActiveCampaign.
Here are some example automations you could create:

  • After course purchase, send an email sequence designed to help students get oriented and started successfully on a specific course
  • When a student finishes certain lessons, send them a personalized email that encourages them to keep up the progress
  • Send a congratulatory text message after a student completes a particularly challenging section
  • Notify a teacher or a tutor when someone joins a course
  • Notify the teacher when someone completes a course so the teacher can personally call or email to congratulate the student
  • After a course is completed, begin a series of marketing emails designed to sell that student new courses they might be interested in
  • Notify the teacher if a student hasn’t logged in over 7 days
  • Send reminder emails about your live event or online office hours

There is really no end to the number of personalized adaptive automations that you could create with the LifterLMS ActiveCampaign integration.
Our goal is to help you build the most engaging online courses, membership sites, and learning management systems in existence.

What if You Don’t Leverage the Power of LifterLMS and ActiveCampaign?

At LifterLMS we work with a lot of education entrepreneurs who are building online education platforms around their passions, skills, and life experience.
LifterLMS allows anyone with a basic WordPress powered website to create a first class training site that rivals the functionality of hosted education platforms. Did you know that LinkedIn recently bought online education training site for $1.5 Billion? Training sites are valuable, and anyone can build one these days with LifterLMS.
If you don’t leverage the power of LifterLMS to create a simple online course or a more advanced learning platform, you might end up stuck with one of these painful outcomes:

  • You never create impact and income from your knowledge; it remains trapped inside of you
  • You get stuck in a hosted solution with hidden fees on a platform you can’t control
  • You give up on teaching online with the mistaken concept that it’s too difficult and expensive to get started

If you don’t leverage the power of ActiveCampaign to create more personalized and adaptive engagement with your students and prospective students, you might end up stuck with one of these painful outcomes:

  • You have a great online training program, but your marketing systems have not been developed so your potential reach is a fraction of what it could be
  • You miss the opportunity to create systems to keep your learners engaged so you end up trapped with the industry standard of a 10% online course completion rate
  • You are unable to execute professional mass or segmented email communications to your community of learners

LifterLMS and ActiveCampaign together allow you to scale the human touch through robotics in online education.
