Eloqua has already created an IP Warming program template. It take only a few minutes to setup, but prior to working in program builder you need to do two steps:
1) Build the email that will be used for the IP Warming Campaignip
2) Create a Segment that you want to send the email to.
Go to: Setup > Program Builder > BP- IP Warming
It's recommended that rather than modifying the BP - IP Warming template, you create a copy.
Add Members to the very first step called "100. Add Contacts" > Choose Source: Contact Filter > Contact Filter > Search for the "Segment" you created > Press OK
The next step in the process to add the email. Scroll down to the step "All: 999 Batch Send": press the small arrow > Edit Step Default Action > Send Batch Email > And then search and choose for the email you already created > hit save and close.
Those are the only two changes you need to make to the IP Warming Program Template.
The IP Warming program is setup to start on a Sunday. You could start the program sooner, by adding contacts to the "Y: Pre-Split Hold" step.
To activate the program select: Program > Enable Program > And then you should be able to choose Bulk or Priority mode
