How do I apply a tag when someone opens my broadcast?

With Automations, you have the option to trigger certain actions based on how a subscriber interacts with your message. One such automation is having a tag applied when a subscriber opens one of your broadcasts. Using tags with the open broadcast automation, you can separate those subscribers opening your content and even have a campaign triggered off of that tag.

In this article, we will cover how to have a tag applied when someone Opens one of your broadcast messages. Plain text emails would not be able to track opens so an HTML email would be required for this feature.

Note: this feature is not accessible on the AWeber Free plan. Upgrade your account to unlock this feature and many more by clicking here, or by contacting our Customer Solutions team.
