Automation flows are the perfect way to create and send multi-stage communications triggered by a certain event (e.g., subscribing to texts, abandoning a cart, etc.). Automation Flows differ from legacy automations in that you can take advantage of Automation Flow-specific features like Wait for Event Branching.
With automation flow templates, you can easily create fresh messages and ideas for engaging subscribers throughout their buying journey. Simply choose your Template Type, select the template you wish to use, and you're ready to go.
