ConvertKit terms


A series of automated emails sent based on triggers or time intervals.

What are sequences in ConvertKit?

Sequences in ConvertKit are automated emails that are sent out to subscribers in a specific order and at specific intervals that you set. They are designed to help you automate your email marketing process. You can use sequences to deliver email courses, to onboard new customers, to nurture leads, or to provide value to your subscribers on a consistent basis.

Each sequence can contain any number of emails, and you can customize the content and timing of each email to suit your needs. You can also segment your subscribers and send different sequences to different segments, allowing you to personalize your email marketing. Sequences are a powerful tool in ConvertKit that can save you time and help you engage with your subscribers more effectively.
