How can I trigger a Campaign with Campaigns?

When you create a new campaign with Campaigns, there are two options for how to trigger your actions. In this article, we will walk through the different actions available as well as how to use them.

Depending on how you would like to begin this campaign, you will choose one of these two options - "On Subscribe" or "Tag Applied." "On Subscribe" will start the campaign when someone joins your list. "Tag Applied" will start the campaign when the system applies a tag to a subscriber's information.

Step By Step Instructions

After you have created and named your campaign, you will be given options of how you would like to trigger the campaign.
