How do I make sure new subscribers receive my welcome email?

When a new subscriber signs up for your newsletter it is important that they confirm their email and mark it as important. Ensuring you leverage our smart nudge functionality + leveraging double optin are the first two steps here.  

A new subscriber will first need to confirm their email address before they receive your welcome email

One thing you can do is create a custom standalone page. This page can be used to welcome new subscribers and also set expectations on next steps. For example, confirming their email address and marketing your emails as important within their inboxes. This will set your welcome email and all future emails up for success. 

Here is the process on how to set up a custom standalone page and have it be your default redirect option after someone opts in to your newsletter. 

1. Go to app.beehiiv.com
