Basic Steps to Setting up a Simple Autoresponder Sequence
Step 1: Create Your First Workflow
In MailerLite, click on Automation at the top of the screen, then click on “Create Your First Workflow,” as illustrated below…
Step 2: Give your workflow a name and select a list
On the right of your screen, give your workflow a name and select a list. (You will most likely be using something like “My Blog” as this is the list that is joined with your blog Capture Form.)
After completing those options, click the Save button.
Step 3: Your screen should look like the image below, and yes you want to hit the “+” sign now
Step 4: Design Your Email
Step 5: Turn On Your Automation
Step 6: Add Delay
To add additional emails, you will go back to your workflow and turn it off. Then, click the plus sign below your first email. Make sure you add a delay of at least 1 to 2 days between each email. Then, use the steps above to add and edit your email content. I like to use between 5-7 emails in a series spread over a period of 1-2 weeks.
Congratulations, you have just completed your first automation in MailerLite. When a visitor to your blog fills out your Lead Capture Form, they will automatically be added to the list you selected and receive the first email in your series. I like to call this the “Welcome Email.”
MailerLite is the perfect place to start building your list. My advice? Stop shopping around and thinking about it and just do it
