If you target several subscriber personas, make sure they land in the correct workflows. You can ask your audience to choose the preferred workflow (e.g. by asking them to subscribe by clicking the right CTA button) or ask them about their preferences and move them to the right workflow based on the data you collected.

This will have a positive impact on your business. Placing the right person in the right workflow improves the quality of your email list and allows you to send the right emails to the right people.
