We add new integrations to Segment all the time, and if there’s one thing you all are vocal about it’s, “tell us about the new hotness!” So we’re starting a new series that will deliver exactly that!
Without further ado, our newest integration is… Drip!
Drip helps you build an email course. It adds a small widget to your site so that users can easily signup for a drip email series you’ve written.
Drip differs from other email-sending tools because it is entirely focused on campaigns that are composed of a series of lessons or blog posts. As soon as a visitor hits signup, you sit back and relax while each email in your series automatically gets sent out over the course of a few weeks.
And because Drip is so focused, it can give you extra features that make it’s specific use case as simple as possible, like their signup widget that you no longer have to build yourself:
A good example use case for Drip is our own Analytics Academy. When we first started the Academy we wanted our new users to get Lesson 1 a week after signing up, and a Lesson 2 a week after that, but we didn’t have an easy way to do that automatically. Drip is exactly the kind of tool we were looking for, it just didn’t exist yet! And I know from our support hotline that a bunch of you have been looking for a similar solution.
If you’re thinking about starting your own e-course (and you should because they are a great way to get your name out there if you have interesting thoughts to share!) you should definitely take a look at Drip. No need to reinvent the wheel, just head over to your Segment integrations page and flip it on!
