What is Dynamic Drip Email Marketing

by Deepak Kanakaraju on October 27, 2017

Dynamic Drip Email Marketing is a name that I’ve coined for a specific type of drip marketing that is different from the standard drip marketing.

Standard drip marketing has simple set of emails distributed over a period of time. For example, a 10-part email course that is delivered over a period of 10 days. Here you will have one email every two days.

However, there will be subscribers who are highly engaged, and they would be open to receiving more emails from you than others who do not interact with your emails much.

This is possible with advanced email tools like Drip.co where you can trigger emails based on the subscriber’s behaviour.

For example, in my free email marketing course, the first drip email that goes out is a Welcome email. However, there is a link to my Facebook Group in this email. If a subscriber clicks on this link, they get another email with additional information about the Facebook Group. People who do not click that link, do not get that email.

Here’s the workflow I’ve made for it:

Whenever someone clicks the link to the Learn Digital Marketing group on Facebook, they are tagged as ‘Clicked – LDM Group’ and it triggers a workflow that delivers emails appropriately.

The open rates for such emails are extremely high. You can see that in this case it is 70%+

Since the email is triggered based on the behaviour of the subscribers, the email is seen more like a transactional email than a promotional email.

When you’ve setup such a complex workflow of emails, the subscriber navigates through your drip marketing sequence that is unique to his/her behaviour. Each email is personalized, triggered based on behaviour and hence it gets sky high open rates.

I believe dynamic drip email marketing will replace standard drip marketing in the near future. People keep saying that the open rates are falling and email marketing is not that effective anymore. However, if you can design your emails in such a way that the right email is sent to the right person at the right time, email marketing can still be VERY effective.

I’ll be publishing more on email marketing tactics in the coming days. I’ll also keep you posted about the Email Marketing Mastery Course that I’m going to launch in November 2017.

Please, is Aweber and Getrespond offer this feature?


Deepak Kanakaraju October 27, 2017 at 1:56 pm

I know for sure that Aweber doesn’t have the feature. But I’m not sure about GetResponse.


Vivek Kumar October 27, 2017 at 2:02 pm

Hey Deepak! Would Sendy.co and AWS SES help achieve this?


Deepak Kanakaraju October 27, 2017 at 2:54 pm

No, you need a tool like Drip, Pardot or Marketo to do this.

Dear Deepak,

Thanks for sharing the basics. It helps to understand where we started to miss the edge and then calculate the given dynamics of the process that flows much smoother later.

Best Regards

Hey, Deepak! These workflows that you have shared are very helpful. The Dynamic Drip Email Marketing is one of the amazing features that I have come across. I would want to know if you are aware of any other marketing automation or email automation software that offers Dynamic Drip Email Marketing, Multi-Channel Hybrid campaigns and push notifications, other than Aritic PinPoint?
