Automation sequence from list transfer

Hi all,

First time poster, long time user 🙂

I am working on making my newsletter onboarding sequence awesome. I have three different lists that someone could join. 

  • Reader Group 1
  • Reader Group 2
  • Everyone

What I'd like to do is have one automation sequence that starts based on where you signed up. Example: Reader Group 1 gets an automation welcoming to Reader Group 1 with specifics around Reader Group 1. 

After the first email or two, I'd like to move the subscriber to Everyone and have the next emails trigger from the Everyone list. The Everyone list automations are for, well, everyone and include things like "getting to know me" emails. I was thinking having these emails as automations from one list instead of duplicate emails for different lists would be the best way to go but I'm open to ideas.

Here's the flow I'm trying to achieve:

  • Reader signs up for Reader Group 1 newsletter
    • System sends the "Confirm Subscription" email
    • User confirms
    • System sends the "Welcome to Reader Group 1" email automated email associated to Mailing List = Reader Group 1
  • I see the reader views the email (yay!) and move them to the Everyone list (with appropriate tagging)
    • System sends the "Hi, I'm Tim" automated email for the Everyone list
    • 7 days later, System sends the "More about Tim" automated email for the Everyone list
    • etc...

I hope this all makes sense. If someone else is doing something like this with the Squarespace email system, I'd appreciate it if you let me know how you're doing that.

Thanks!

Tim

Unfortunately the automations in Campaigns aren't that advanced yet. I have a similar workflow with my readers and I'm using Flodesk until the Campaigns feature is up to par on Squarespace. Fingers crossed it will get some love in 2023.
