Hi all,

I want to send a new e-mail to opens of a previous e-mail.  Is there a way to do this if I did not initially set-up an automated series?  

The only "work-around" I can think of is to download the opens list, re-upload with a tag, and then resent the e-mail to that specific tagged list.  The only downside is that when uploading that opens list, it I believe it bypasses the opt-outs because you need to click that "I have permission to mail this list."

Any insights would be helpful.

Thanks!

Hello @MIkeG0785 ,

 

Are you explicitly wanting to make a full automated series based on the openers of that email? If so, the workaround would be to instead make a list-join auto series instead. You'd want to:

  1. Create the list for your auto series to trigger off of
  2. Create the auto series, have it trigger based on new additions to that list, and then activate when you finish and test the email steps
  3. Go to the initial email's open report, select-all the contacts in there, Actions > Add to list > select the list associated with the auto series

 

If you're just wanting to send a standalone follow-up email, you can just make a list from that initial email's open report. Go to the initial email's open report, select-all the contacts in there, Actions > Add to list > Create. Then once you've setup that list and added the openers, you can send your standalone follow-up email.

Thanks so much, William.  Would you please confirm that if an e-mail recipient opened and then opted-out, they will NOT receive the e-mail?

If an email recipient has opted out via unsubscription from you, they won't be able to be added to a list or sent to.
