If someone downloaded an ebook from my landing page and they get added to a list… how can I add them to another list after a few days…

In otherwords they optin for the ebook then they get the thank you email with their download, then I want 1 day to pass then they get added to my general list to receive the welcome email sequence I’ve set up.

I hope that makes sense? Thank You!🙏👍

Hi @TylerHemp, Glad to have you in our Klaviyo Community! 

You wouldn’t be able to add someone to a list, because a list contains anyone who has subscribed to join the list and will only grow or shrink as people either subscribe or unsubscribe. However, you could create and add them to a segment.

You can do that by using an action, or by having an “update profile property” action at the end of the original flow. Use that property to create a segment, then use that segment to trigger another flow.


With the option listed above, you would have two flows running at once: your general welcome flow, and your flow for folks who downloaded the ebook first. 
Alternatively, you could have one flow run that is triggered by a segment. The segment definition in this case would be “is in general list” OR “downloaded ebook first”. 

You can learn more about how to create a segment here, and how to trigger flows here.
