eTrigue DemandCenter provides the ability for users to create their own landing pages right inside the application. Enabling the subdomain for your DemandCenter account has many benefits, including, but not limited to:
Create branded landing pages using DemandCenter’s Drag and Drop Landing Page Builder.
Gain access to DemandCenter’s library of pre-configured email & landing page templates.
Images and links within email or landing page assets are branded with your subdomain, improving the user experience for your audience.
Email Opt-Out links are branded with your subdomain, which helps with email deliverability because links in emails that are seen as coming from domains that share your name are less likely to be flagged as spam.
How to Setup Your Subdomain
- Decide on a name for your subdomain. The subdomain will brand your images, links, and landing pages, so you will want to make sure it is a name that matches your corporate identity and is a name you would want your audiences to see.
- Create a DNS resource record for your subdomain. The type and values are as follows:
Type: A Record
Note – it may take up to 24 - 72 hours before your DNS changes take effect across the Internet.
- It is recommended that your IT team also update your internal network’s DNS settings to include your subdomain. This will help ensure that assets branded with your subdomain are accessible to your own internal users.
Without an update to DNS, users might not be able to see images that have been uploaded to the account. Additionally, they may encounter webpage errors like 404 or Page Cannot Be Found when trying to view landing pages created in eTrigue.
- Notify the eTrigue Success Team (email@example.com) for verification and activation of your subdomain.
