elegantPurl Lite

Description

Elegant PURL helps you have better traction and conversion on your
landing pages. It does this by giving you a simple way to put personal
data dynamically on your WordPress pages. Like a mail merge function,
it gives you short code access to first and last names, along with
other key data for all the members of your campaigns.

Each campaign lets you map customers to a specific page on your site.
The result is not only the ability to use their information on the
page, but also a custom personalized URL (PURL) just for them. So if
your customer is Sue Smith, and your campaign is for new computers,
your urls could be:

yourdomain.com/new-computers/SueSmith

That’s a url that will draw attention and cause more people to click
it. When they get to the page, your headlines and body copy can
leverage their contact information, so that you’re offering Sue a
great deal.

A pro version is also available that offers key integration with
landing page plugins like Premise and MaxInBound, along with other
additional features.

FAQ

Does the campaign have to be in the personalized URL? Can’t I just route people to domain/name?

You can with our pro version, but not with our lite version.

What is the format of the shortcodes?

To manually enter a built-in shortcode, use the format [epurl-fieldname]. For example, for the first name field, the shortcode is [epurl-firstname].

For custom fields in ePurl Pro, shortcodes follow the format [epurl-campaign-fieldname]. For example, for the custom field “Custom Field 1” in campaign “Campaign 1”, the shortcode would be [epurl-campaign-1-custom_field_1].

Why don’t ePurl shortcodes work in all elements of a Gravity Forms landing page?

Currently, ePurl only supports shortcodes in text form fields on Gravity Forms. It cannot be used with labels or radio buttons.

In ePurl Pro, when importing, what happens to fields that do not exist in the target campaign?

When importing members into a campaign with ePurl Pro, leaving “Check if your CSV file has a header row” checked tells ePurl that the first row of the CSV contains the names of the fields being imported. If any of the fields do not exist in the target campaign, they will be added to that campaign. Custom fields added during the import can be found under “Fields” in the campaign UI.
