Overview: Sending an Automated Email Series


With Constant Contact, there are many types of automated emails you can send, helping to save you time in the long run and stay engaged with your contacts. In addition to setting up an Automated Email Series to welcome new contacts who join your list, you can also automatically send a series of relevant, timely follow-up emails to contacts when they open or click through a specific email. Because your contacts must sign up to your list or engage with an email in order to "trigger" the automated series, they've already shown interest in your business or a specific topic and are more likely to engage with similar content.

Hi @First-NameL29861 


That's a great question! I can understand how helpful it would be to set-up your series like this for you event. However at this time the triggers for an automated series does not have this option. This is however a feature request I would be happy to submit in your account. As a workaround you can copy these emails as separate campaigns and schedule it for the specific date of your choice. If you choose to send it at an early date, you can even manually send it to new contacts who have been added to your list through our Resend Feature. Doing this allows you to make sure the campaign is delivered at the correct time of your choice.
