Send a beautiful email welcome sequence using Autopilot's drag and drop mobile responsive email builder, or select from one of Autopilot's pre-built email templates. Send a personalized SMS to those subscribers who don't open your emails to improve engagement. Let your team know about the new subscriber with a simple Slack notification, and add your subscribers to a list in Autopilot so you can easily manage them.
