Email automations are a series of emails and actions that are kicked off when a subscriber completes a certain action, or “trigger.”
An email automation trigger is an event that will automatically kick-start your automation workflow as soon as that event takes place. Selecting a trigger (or triggers) is the first step in creating an automation workflow.
With MailerLite, automations can be created on both our free and paid plans. However, certain advanced features are only available on paid plans that start from 9 $/month.
