How ActiveCampaign works
If you want to get customer data out of ActiveCampaign and into your data warehouse there are a few options. Most people end up building a custom ETL pipeline that pulls from the ActiveCampaign API on a regular basis. Building the pipeline also means handling its maintenance over time, however. The “build it” option gets more complex if you want to stream email events like deliver, click, and open in realtime. There are also expensive enterprise ETL tools and open source options, but those usually still require a lot of planning and configuration to get the data you want in the format you want it.
Get more out of ActiveCampaign with Segment
With Segment, all the customer data you’re collecting from your websites, mobile apps, or servers gets sent directly into ActiveCampaign. The result is that you don’t need to do any additional installation or duplicate instrumentation of code, and you can utilize both Site Tracking and Event Tracking from ActiveCampaign. ActiveCampaign is also a Segment cloud source. Being a cloud source means that Segment can automatically collect events _from_ ActiveCampaign, like Email Delivered and Email Opened, forward them to your other tools, and even load them into your data warehouse. This allows for a powerful bi-directional flow of data to and from ActiveCampaign, managed by Segment.
By using ActiveCampaign as a source of data in your favorite BI or analytics tool, you’ll be able to analyze your email campaigns in SQL or through drag-and-drop reports. You’ll also be able to join your ActiveCampaign data with all the other data you’re sending through Segment to analyze the down-funnel effects of your email campaigns.
