How Much Does It Cost?
We’ve devised our Marketing Accelerator program that will enable you to go live with Dynamics 365 Marketing using the essential features you need in the quickest possible time.
In many instances, this is completed with a consultancy totalling £4750 to complete this initial onboarding program. This can be combined with additional packs, as shown below, to provide further capabilities for your initial implementation, or to address broader marketing needs.
The following optional items can be added to the base Marketing Accelerator pack detailed above to create a custom deployment of Dynamics 365 Marketing. Additional time will be applied for each pack. Each pack can be added at the start of your project, or can be used at a later point as you configure more capabilities.

Frequently Asked Questions
Through our Accelerator pack we will work with you to create an initial set of templates which will support your initial campaign. This will include applying your pre-defined branding and designs to your email templates and web forms. Preact will not be responsible for the production of your marketing collateral, branding, or template designs. It is recommended that you engage a design agency if these services are required.
This Accelerator program is a joint exercise between Preact and your organisation. During this engagement we will provide guidance and support to assist you starting with the basics and going live with your initial campaign using Dynamics 365 Marketing. However, ultimate responsibility for the construction and execution of your marketing campaigns will remain with the customer.
The objective of the Marketing Accelerator is to support you in launching your first campaign using Dynamics 365 Marketing, in the shortest time possible. It will be the responsibility of the client to use the time purchased with the base Accelerator pack, and any optional packs, in an effective manner in order to achieve this objective. Preact will provide guidance on the best way to achieve this, but do not guarantee a fixed outcome.
The time to complete the Accelerator program may vary depending on individual client requirements and availability. This will be discussed during the initial review, but it is anticipated that the project will be delivered over a 2 - 4 week period.
To ensure the work is promptly completed, we require relevant personnel from your organisation to be available to Preact, as required for the duration of the implementation. This will also include any third-party providers, as appropriate.
This will include:
- Installation of the Marketing app into a single Dynamics 365 environment
- Configure email sending domains
- Deploying web analytics tracking scripts
- Enabling double opt in processes (if required)
- Creating a GDPR record
- Enabling relevant feature switches
- Configuring hard bounce management
- Configuring storage for all form submissions
- Enabling litmus analysis integration
- Personalise the unsubscribe form
- Configure default settings
All work including workshops, training and support will be completed remotely.
Licences for Dynamics 365 Marketing must be purchased separately before this product can be installed in your environment.
This engagement will strictly cover Dynamics 365 Marketing, but through our Elevate 365 managed service, we will address any Dynamics-related requirements.
If you purchase either of our optional data import packs, you will need to supply use with your contacts and / or leads. Once you are signed up, we will provide the appropriate data template(s) to complete. Responsibility for the quality of this data will reside with the client.
The basis of the Accelerator approach is to start with the basics and go live quickly with value. Additional requirements can be handled by purchasing one of our addon packs and, where possible, we recommend covering these items in a subsequent deploying phase using our Elevate 365 managed service.
