Under the Company Details section enter the name of the company or program that the campaign will be associated with and enter your website URL that you would like associated with this campaign.
Next, enter the signature that you would like to use for your messages that you send out.
If you have a company logo that you would like associated with your content, upload it here to assist in establishing your brand! Don't have a logo? Design one on Canva for free!
Note: The company logo will keep it's size when you upload it. So if your logo is too large, you may want to resize it before uploading it. We recommend using a logo width of 600px.
Move to the Confirmation Message section of the List Settings by clicking on the Confirmation Message icon at left hand side of the page.
Here you be able to edit the confirmation message that your subscribers are sent after they sign up to your mailing list. You will be able to edit the subject line, header, and signature of the confirmation message.

You set a campaign to trigger automatically for all subscribers when they are subscribed or when a certain tag is applied. To create a campaign, find Campaigns under the the Automations tab in the navigation bar.
