Using Automation Rules from Gist, you can now use simple “if this, then that” style rules to perform tasks. You can automate the most important but, at the same time, boring aspects of marketing with Gist. 

You can move subscribers in and out of campaigns. You can apply tags to users based on their actions, delete users from the database, and much more.

Setup your rules

Choose a Trigger and then Select an Action. Watch the videos below and set up your own Automation right now!

Step 1: Choose a Trigger.

To use marketing automation on Gist, you need to set up event triggers and their respective actions.

To do this, select the ‘Outbound’ tab on the taskbar and click on Automation > Rules .

Choose an appropriate name for your trigger depending on what action you’re automating.

Step 2: Select Action.

Select the event which you want to focus on, and choose the action you want to trigger as a consequence of that event.

For instance, when someone ‘submits a form’, you can configure Gist to send them an email campaign automatically.

Once you finish defining your trigger, switch the On/Off toggle in the upper right to turn your Automation on. Your new automation trigger is live, and Gist will take care of the actions automatically.

Gist has over 40 triggers and actions, which you can use to build as many automation rules as you want, including creating multiple actions for the same trigger.
