An Autoresponder Campaign can be created by following the few simple steps mentioned below.

Step 1: Navigate to your Mailmunch menu bar items on the homepage, and select Campaigns. Click on the Create New Campaign button present in the top right corner of your screen.

Step 2: Click on Automated Welcome Email from the different campaign types displayed.

Step 3: Give an internal title for your email campaign for easy reference. Click on the CONFIRM button.

Step 4: Browse through a variety of eye-catching templates. Hover over the template of your liking, and click on the USE TEMPLATE button in order to select it.

Step 5: In the Content section, design your email by making use of the different tools offered by Mailmunch to make your email stand out from the crowd. Customize the template to your liking. Drag and drop the buttons to your desired location on the template to add text, images, buttons, dividers or elements through HTML code.

Step 6: Once you have designed the content, proceed to the Subject step, set the Subject for your email in the Subject tab. Make use of Personalize merge tags to make your emails personalized for each recipient such as adding the Last Name of the recipient to the Subject of the email. If the user did not provide a name in the form, there is an option to choose a default value for the missing field values.

Add the Preheader Text, this is a short summary text displayed to your subscribers when viewing an email.

Fill in the Sender Information, and use your name or company's name as the Sender Name. In the tab next to the sender name, you will be shown the verified email addresses you have for this domain. If you do not have one, please type in an email address and press enter. Once the email address has been verified through the verification email sent to your inbox, you will be able to select the email address from the drop-down list.

Step 7: Click on the Audience step to select your MailMunch list. Subscribers present in these lists will receive the Autoresponder email. You can have different lists assigned to different forms and you can design a different Autoresponder campaign for each form by selecting a different audience for each campaign. You can also enable UMT Tracking by clicking on the checkbox.

Step 8: Proceed to the Schedule step to set up a time for your email to be sent. Select the Send Now option to immediately send your email or select the Send Later option to send your email at a specific time. To specify the time, either enter or select the Time Zone and Date & Time from the drop-down menu. Click on the Next button to proceed.

Step 9: Click on the Review step to preview the final outlay of the email. Click on the SEND button to send a Test Email to your inbox set as the sender's email address in Subject settings.

Step 10: Click on the Activate button present in the top right corner of your screen. Then, click on the START AUTORESPONDER button to send your autoresponder email. Click on the SAVE DRAFT button to save your campaign as a draft.

Note: The footer text is added by default and it will show the domain name you have set for your domain in the Manage Site section.

An unsubscribe link is there to set the status as unsubscribed and will not delete the subscriber from your list. When follow-up emails are available, any follow-up email campaign will not be sent to that user.
