How can I use my current Follow Up Series with Campaigns?

When subscribers are added to your list, you can send them autoresponder messages. AWeber's two autoresponder features are Follow Up Series and Campaigns. Although you don't have to set up an autoresponder, it is helpful to welcome your subscribers and set expectations for the kind of content you will be sending in the future. With campaigns, you can also use tags and automations to further target your subscribers based on their behavior.

Campaign and follow up series messages are completely separate. You can use both features at the same time, but you wouldn't be able to have subscribers receive a follow up series first and then have them automatically receive your campaign, and vice versa. The follow up series will always trigger immediately when a subscriber is added to your list. Campaigns can be triggered on subscribe, as well, or when a specific tag is applied. If you would you like to utilize the more robust features of campaigns, you can easily turn your follow up series into a campaign using the follow up sharing code.

If your account was created after 02/03/2020, the Follow Up Series feature will not be present within your account as this feature has been deprecated. Creating an automated series of messages can be done with Campaigns.
