Fill in Campaign Details
Give your campaign a name and description. These should be unique and clearly describe the campaign's purpose.
Select 'Segment Triggered'
Under "Type of Campaign", select "Segment Triggered". This means the campaign will start for people when they enter or exit the selected segment.
Select Your Segment
In the "Segment" dropdown menu, select the segment you previously created. People in this segment will be the ones targeted by this campaign.
Design Your Message
Click "Create Email" (or SMS, Push, etc.), then craft your message. Personalize it as needed by adding relevant variables. Remember to save your work.
Choose When to Send
Under "Workflow", decide when you want the message to be sent once someone enters the segment. You can choose immediate delivery or specify a delay.
