Learn how to send automated Follow Up and timed Broadcast messages to build a relationship with your subscribers. When both message types are used, you are able to automatically communicate with your subscribers through your Follow Up Series as well as sending time sensitive messages in the form of a Broadcast. Additionally, you can create a Blog Broadcast message to send the content of your blog posts directly to your subscribers or send a Split Test to test different subject lines and message content.
Both follow ups and broadcasts will first created as "Drafts". Once your draft is complete, you will be able to add your message to your follow up series or send it out as a broadcast to your subscribers.

Split Tests allow you to send different messages to randomized groups of subscribers in your list. The purpose of a Split Test is to see how subscribers engage with a particular subject line or specific content in your messages. You can schedule messages in a Split Test similarly to how you would schedule a Broadcast message. After the Spit Test has successfully been sent, you can determine a winner (the message that got the most opens or clicks), and then schedule the winning message to send to your remaining subscribers. To create a Split Test, hover over the "Messages" tab and click Split Tests.
