When a new subscriber joins your list, whether via API into Tatango from your landing and donation pages or through a mobile opt-in, you’ll want to welcome them to your texting program. A best practice is to have an automated welcome series set up to introduce them to your texting program.

Below we created multiple welcome message series to use as templates for your list. Feel free to edit these messages or use them for inspiration.
