Advanced Email Automation by weMail

The advanced email automation feature allows users to send emails when they meet a particular set of triggers and conditions. You can easily set up an email automation series suitable for your campaign needs. When someone hits a trigger, s/he will automatically receive a message designed beforehand by the campaign creator using weMail.

Let’s learn how you can set up an email automation series using the advanced email automation feature offered by weMail.

Log in to your WordPress admin panel and go to the weMail dashboard. Choose Automations (make sure to use the latest update of the weMail plugin).

Hit the Create New button to set up new automation.

weMail offers a few pre-defined automation templates for the users. You can also start from scratch by clicking on the blank slate link.

Let’s see how we can use a pre-defined template to create an automation campaign. For example, we chose the Welcome Message template here.

Choose the Welcome Message Template

Give your campaign a suitable name. Choose a trigger you want to apply. Select or create a list where you want the triggers to work. Then hit the Create Automation button.
