Welcome New Subscribers

With Drip

Drip Welcome New Subscribers


When new subscribers enter your Drip account, you want to be sure you give them a proper welcome, while also ensuring they are tagged and led to the right workflows from here on out.

In this video, I’ll show you my recommended Welcome automation flow for all new subscribers coming into Drip.

Goals for this automation

  • Ensure all new people are tagged and subscribed to the correct “list(s)” in Drip
  • Check to see if they’re currently being pitched on anything right now
  • If not, then send them a Welcome email that asks for a reply.

Services used in this guide

  • Drip
    Similar alternatives:  ActiveCampaign, ConvertKit
