1. The automation is triggered when a contact subscribes to your "Newsletter" email list. You can create an ActiveCampaign form for contacts to fill out, or use your own opt-in strategy to build up your newsletter email list
2. The automation waits until the automation goal, "First Week of the Month" is achieved (Note: Adjust these goal steps and set the exact date you want your email contacts to receive your newsletter)
