There are lots of articles on Topliners on this topic, but this is the short answer if you already know what you're doing and just need the link hierarchy. See the image below and a copy/paste version follows.

Here's the link that you can copy and paste. Just remember to replace the items in brackets with the correct details and delete the brackets.

 

http://s[siteID].t.eloqua.com/e/f2.aspx?elqFormName=[FormName]&elqSiteID=[siteID]&emailAddress=<span%20class=eloquaemail>EmailAddress</span>&[TrackedField]=[StaticValue]

Do you know where to find new release updates for Eloqua? Bookmark the Release Resource Center in Topliners! One caveat: it won't pop up in a search unless you're a member of the Eloqua Insiders group.

 

  1. Request to join Eloqua Insiders
  2. Check out the What's New link once you're a member of the group

 

The Release Resource Center and links to release documentation are all in this Topliners group.

 

Hope you find what you're looking for

Yes, there is!

 

HTTP Protocol does not have a limit, but browsers and servers do. This is something that may come into play if you're building emails with blind form submit links, for example. The following are a few samples for character limits by browser:

 

Internet Explorer: 2,083

Mozilla Firefox: 65,500+ displayed; 100,000+ functional

Safari: 80,000+

 

As a best practice, use 2,000 characters or less to make sure your URLs work in every browser -- especially IE, which is used widely around the world. Other reasons to limit URL size include:

 

  • Servers the URL passes through may not recognize as many characters as your browser
  • Some browsers limit the characters of URLs for bookmarks or favorites

 

Happy URL creating.

Here's a super quick answer for this one:

 

Go to Settings > Company Defaults. You'll see a row for Site ID that's a string of numbers like this: 1234567890

 

Another way to see it is whenever you're in a Form, click the Gear on the upper right and select View Form HTML. You'll see a string near the top that looks like this:

 

action="https://s1234567890.t.eloqua.com/e/f2"

 

The red numbers shown as an example here (they are not red in Eloqua ) comprise the Site ID.

There's a lot of great info on Topliners about how to execute A/B tests using either the Campaign Canvas or Program Builder. So what should you be testing? There are the obvious choices: subject lines and CTA. But there are more!

 

Use this list below for more ideas on possible email features to test.

 

Best practices:

  • Test only one email feature at a time to accurately read results.
  • Keep a record of your testing and share it with others in your organization.

 

Buttons: color, size, text

Call to Action (CTA): location, copy, color, navigation path

Color: background, header, footer, text, buttons

Copy: text font, text length, text order, subject line, CTA

Design: total redesign, clean vs. clutter, images vs. icons

Form Elements: number of fields, size, copy, location

Frequency

Funnel: tie-in vs. independent from other parts of the funnel

Images: size, placement, clickable vs. not clickable, images vs. icons

Navigation: click path, conversion path, multiple landing pages vs. one

Offer: type, price, copy, location, size

Personalization: location, name vs. more details

Search Box

Social Share: placement, choices, default copy

Subject Line: personalization, copy, humor, offer

Testimonials: included vs. not included

Timing

Video: size, placement, clickable vs. not clickable
