How do I remove a subscriber from a campaign when they click a link in my message?

With Automations, you have the option to trigger certain actions based on how a subscriber interacts with your message. For example, if a subscriber clicks on a link in your message, they can be removed from that campaign. In this article we'll walk through how to add this type of Automation to your campaign.

Note: If you are using AWeber’s sales tracking in your list, and have the analytics javascript installed, automations will not trigger for that URL.
