How do I add a link clicked trigger to my Automation?

In this article, we'll walk through how to add a link clicked Automation to your campaign.

With Automations, you have the option to trigger certain actions based on how a subscriber interacts with your message. In this case, when a subscriber clicks a particular link you can have a tag applied, removed, and can stop subscribers from receiving campaign messages with that tag.

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.
