Configure your play

1. Create a report for your audience

Using the LinkedIn Account Upload Audience Template as a guide, build the following report. Champify supplies, Company Name, Company website, company email domain, company page url. If the other fields in your CRM, you can pull them into the report though they are not needed for matching.

  1. Create a new "Accounts" Report in Salesforce
  2. Adjust your account filters. Make sure you target all contacts, set the right account critieria such as account type, industry, and employee count, and highlight the correct title. Qualification is done during configuration, so this is only if you want to narrow the scope further.
  3. Add a filter for Number of Champifys is greater than or equal to 3
  4. Build the report outline to reflect the LinkedIn Audience template:
  5. Save your report with the audience name - we like Former Champions - Retargeting Audience
