Using a Content Track as an Eloqua Confirmation Page

Summary

Redirecting visitors from a Thank You landing page into a Content Track is a great way to promote your content to interested prospects.

This article covers:

  • How to redirect form fills to a Content Track

Scenario:

  • You have an external landing page with a Eloqua form

  • You want to send visitors who fill out the form to a Content Track rather than a static Thank You page

  • You want those PathFactory visitor activities to be tracked and the data to be sent to Eloqua


Redirect Form Fills to a Content Track

  1. Create a landing page in Eloqua and add the code below using the HTML element:

    PathFactory-Redirect.html

     

    Note
    After submitting a form, this page will briefly appear blank to visitors before they are quickly redirected into a Content Track. This page essentially acts as a bridge, so the visitor’s email address can pass from the submitted form into the PathFactory platform. This allows PathFactory to immediately identify the visitor, and track their activity.
  2. Create a form in Eloqua.

  3. Add an “Update Contacts – With Form Data” form processing step, and set the unique identifier as Email Address.

  5. Enter the following URL:
    http://YourEloquaBaseURL/PathFactory-Redirect.html?lb_redirect=

    • Replace YourEloquaBaseURL with the URL of your Eloqua instance

    • The PathFactory-Redirect.html component is the landing page that you created in step 1

    • Replace with the URL of the Content Track you want to send visitors to

      Note
      You can use the URL of any Target Track, Recommend Track, Explore Page, or Route.

  6. Your External URL will now be in the following format:
    http://YourEloquaBaseURL/PathFactory-Redirect.html?lb_redirect=http://YourCompany.pathfactory.com/c/ExampleContentName?x=ContentExperienceID
