A2. To begin with, workflows are a series of automated emails that are created to trigger personalized emails to your contacts based on their information, their actions, buying habits, etc. In Zoho Campaigns, you have varieties of pre-built workflow templates that can be used in order to set up workflows to contacts who've subscribed to your newsletters, who've opened an email, and more. You can also create custom workflows in Zoho Campaigns to perform unique triggers that would suit your business scenario. The basic steps involved in creating a workflow are:
- Decide who should enter the workflow that you're going to set up
- Configure the steps that should be followed by the ones who've entered your workflow
