To access the Drip Email module, click TRIBUS>Drip Email
Creating a Drip Campaign
From there, you'll reach the Drip Email list page. Just click to begin creating emails for your campaign. We'll go through the steps of creating a Drip Email now.
Create a name for your Drip campaign, and click . We'll name our sample Drip campaign "Hot-Buyer Drip." This name is only visible to you, not to your recipients.
If you change your mind and don't want to create a Drip at this time, just click "CANCEL."
Now that we've got a name for our Drip campaign, we'll need to add some email messages to it. To begin, click .
You'll notice that the "RECIPIENTS" field is empty. We'll leave that alone for now. When we're ready to activate our campaign, we'll just have to add some tags to that field.
Composing Drip Messages
The "Create Message" editor window should look familiar to you. It's very similar to the Editor window you see when you're creating pages and posts for your site.
Refer to the image and numbered list below to view all of the available options for creating email messages for your drip. Again, in this example, we're creating the first message for our Hot-Buyer campaign. The first message is a kind of "thank you for inquiring" and "welcome to the list."
- How soon after you subscribe your leads to this campaign do want them to receive this first message? Enter a number and choose minutes, hours, days, months, years from the drop-down. For our example, we want our recipients to get the email one day after we subscribe them to the list.
- Enter a subject for your message. The message subject is visible to your leads and will appear as the subject in their inbox. Try to keep it short and sweet. Your goal is to entice the recipient to open your email and read it! The Message Subject is a required field.
- Companies/agents with saved headers and footers may opt to use these in their email messages. Or you can choose "Do not use company header and footer." The show header/footer option may be locked if your company requires that the header/footer be displayed in your messages. If you choose to use a header/footer, it will not be shown in the Create Message editor window.
- You can add photos to your messages, but it's wise to keep extras like this to a minimum. Having lots of photos can weigh down your message, literally and figuratively, and can occasionally result in bounced messages if a spam filter is particularly aggressive.
- You have the option of composing your messages in the default visual editor, which allows you the use of the standard row of formatting tools. More advanced users may wish to use the text editor for composing messages in HTML format.
- The body of your email message, including any photos you want to display, goes here in the editor window. Again, you have the option of composing messages using the visual editor window, or the text editor using HTML.
- If you wish to make more of the window of your email body visible, you can expand it by clicking and dragging on the tiny triangle at the bottom-right of your message window.
- If you're happy with the message you've composed, click Save to save it. If you change your mind about the whole thing, click Cancel.
