How do I delay my first Campaign message with Campaigns?

Using Campaigns you will be able to designate a specific wait time between messages. Unlike a Follow Up Series, Campaigns provides the option to delay the first message subscribers are sent after they're added to the campaign. This article will walk through how to delay the first campaign message using the Wait action.

Step By Step Instructions

  1. First, access your campaign or create a new one if you have not already done so. Then, select the Wait action from the left hand sidebar.

  2. Drag and drop this Action onto your canvas.

  4. Next, drag and drop a "Send a Message" action beneath the "Wait" action on your canvas.
