It's frustrating that I only have one welcome message. I'm running a campaign to download an e-book, but they won't get an immediate email with the download link. And I don't want everyone who signs up for my newsletter to get the e-book only a very specific list. Without this ability the Autoresponder feature is not fully built out.
Agree with Raul. A welcome letter is only useful to me if I can also deliver a pdf file with it. As is, I can't do that. Basically I hate welcome letters. They don't make sense for my needs, which is to have different messages and different digital product deliveries in an instant response to a subscriber. So it's back to Aweber for my needs until Constant Contact develops a real full service autoresponder.
Hazel is completely correct on this. I've been asking for these things from CC for years. Other recent improvements are great, but the autoresponder still sucks. Please make this a priority. The current non-functionality prevents me from recommending CC to my clients who want to deliver digital downloads instantly.
Thanks for sharing this feedback, Kathi! Are you using a welcome email to send to these signups immediately? This is the workaround right now but please continue to share feedback on features you would like to see implemented in the future!
Thanks for posting. At this time there is not a way to schedule your Autoresponder to send instantly because the Welcome email sends immediately to all new subscribers. This is a great idea for the future so thank you for posting!
Thanks for posting. You can now turn off your Welcome email but the first Autoresponder email cannot be sent for 24 hours. This is something we're working on developing for the future.
