Campaign Types: Newsletter, Drip, Generic and Event
A newsletter campaign is the classic email blast. This type campaign has both a date and time for sending the newsletter out. Additionally, the newsletter is sent out to a specific distribution list of emails defined as the Campaign Audience. This is a targeted Contact List that is built within EnquireMAP.
The drip campaign is also known as a "nurture campaign" or a "trigger campaign" where each person who goes through a drip campaign is processed from the initial entry into the campaign via the trigger event to remaining in the campaign until there are no further steps to follow.

This generic campaign is a newsletter campaign that does not have a send date and time. Social posts can be scheduled in a generic campaign and can send out a newsletter. The big difference between the two is that a generic campaign does not have a specified send date and time plus are typically used to post and track social posts. In contrast. a newsletter campaign does have a specified send date and time, and they are not used to post and track social posts
The event campaign is a cross between a newsletter campaign and a drip campaign, and it will commonly have multiple steps, each step having a full workflow.
