Setup and Test Trigger campaigns

Last updated March 19, 2024

Trigger campaigns are emails which will be triggered by user actions. For eg. A new user signs up on your platform, they will be sent a welcome email. You can create a journey/workflow on Mailmodo or any other CRM you use. Trigger actions are typically a part of these journeys. 

Triggered emails are an effective tool for you to build a relationship with your customers. They need only be set up once, after which everything is an automated flow. In this article, we will cover the stepwise process of setting up (and testing) a trigger email campaign.
