Send a Campaign

There are three ways to send a campaign in Drip: bulk operations, workflows, and rules.

Send a Campaign via Bulk Operations

There are three steps to send a campaign with a bulk operation. First, select the segment of people to send a campaign to. Second, select the action to Send a campaign. Third, schedule the operation.

To send a campaign with a bulk operation:

  1. Go to People > Imports/ Bulk Ops

  2. Click + New Bulk Operation > Choose a segment of existing people

  3. Click Next Step

  4. Select the people who should receive the Campaign using the People Filter. To send the campaign to your entire list, leave this filter blank.

  5. Click Next

  6. Select Send a campaign from the drop-down menu

  7. Select the campaign

  8. Click Next

  9. Select Immediately to perform the operation immediately, or At a specific time to schedule it for the future

  10. Click Schedule Operation

Once the bulk operation completes, the campaign will be scheduled to send.

Send a Campaign in a Workflow

  1. Go to Automations > Workflows

  2. Click + New Workflow

  3. Name the workflow

  4. Click Create Workflow

  5. Under the goal node, click the + icon where you want to add the action to send a campaign

  6. Click Action

  7. Select Send a campaign from the drop-down

  8. Select a campaign

  9. Click Update Action

Now, people will be subscribed to the Campaign and the first email will be sent to people according to the timing settings.

Send a Campaign in a Rule

  1. Go to Automations > Rules

  2. Click + New Rule

  3. Select a trigger for the rule

  4. Select Send a campaign as the action from the drop-down

  5. Select the campaign

  6. Click Save Rule

Be sure to Activate the rule when it’s ready.

When some is removed from a Campaign and added again, they will start at the email they left off at. The message “People will start with the first campaign email” only applies to new people in the Campaign. To start people at the first email, toggle the option to Restart the campaign when this action fires.

See People in a Campaign

The People list of a Campaign shows the first 25 people currently subscribed to the Campaign. The list is in ascending order by the date they were added to your account, not the date they were subscribed to the Campaign. When a person is removed or unsubscribed from a Campaign, they are removed from the list.  

To see the entire list of people subscribed to a campaign, export the list of people subscribed to this campaign to a CSV file:

  1. Click Actions

  2. Select Export to CSV

  3. Click Okay
