How to create an automation that starts on adding a subscriber to a mailing list

Open "EMAIL" — "Automations." Click "Create new automation."

Creating a new automation

Fill in the campaign information.

Campaign settings

The "Days for sending" and "Time for sending" options determine the priority time for sending emails. So that the options work correctly, during the creation of an email flow, in the "Email" blocks set the time of sending to "After N days."

For example, select the "Mo", "We", "Fr" check boxes for the "Days for sending" option, and set the "Time for sending" option to 10:00 a.m. Then, during the creation of an email flow, set the time of sending to "After 3 days" in the "Email" blocks. Launch the flow. After sending an email is triggered, the service will wait for 3 days, and then send the email on the next day that meets the conditions specified in the automation options. That is if sending the email is triggered on Wednesday at 2:00 p.m., the email will be sent next Monday at 10:00 a.m.

Specify "Add subscriber" as the starting condition of the flow.

Select a mailing list. Automation will be launched for subscribers who are added to this mailing list.

To launch the automation again if a subscriber is repeatedly added to the recipient list of this automation, enable the "Start when subscriber is added to the list multiple times" option.

Click "Apply."

Setting the flow start

Drag the "Email" block to the editor field and link it to the flow start. Specify in what time after adding a subscriber to the mailing list to send an email. Add a subject, for example, "Thank you for subscribing," and the content of the email. Click "Apply" to save the settings.

Adding an email to the flow

Bind the "Condition" block to the "Email" block. Choose opening an email as a condition for sending the next email. Set the period during which the service should wait for the condition to be met. Click "Apply" to save the settings.

Condition settings

Bind two "Email" blocks to the "Condition" block — one for the "no" option, the second one for the "yes" option. For each "Email" block specify in what time after meeting a condition to send the next email. For example, if you specify "After 1 days" as the sending time for each "Email" block, on email will be sent to subscribers one day after opening the "Thank you for subscribing" email, and the second email will be sent to subscribers three days after sending the "Thank you for subscribing" email.

Add the subject and content of the emails. Save the blocks settings.

Dividing the flow in two branches

Continue to develop the flow using the "Condition" and "Email" blocks.

Adding more blocks to the flow

Add a goal for better segmentation of recipients. For example, add three "Goal" blocks into the editor field — "Opened all emails," "Opened some emails," "Not opened any emails." Enable the option "Stop series for the subscriber if goal is triggered." Connect each "Goal" block with the appropriate flow branch.

Goal settings

Go to the "Stat and conversions" tab on the automation page to track statistics on it.
