How do I add a link clicked automation to my broadcast?

Broadcasts are a great way to provide subscribers with time-sensitive updates. Using Automations you can trigger a message, or series of messages, to be sent when someone clicks a link in your broadcast. This is a great way to provide your subscribers with specific information that is more relevant to their interests.

In this article we will go over how to add an Automation in your Broadcast that applies a tag whenever someone clicks a link in the message. That tag can be used to trigger a campaign, or for future segmentation of your list.

Step by step instructions
