Setting up drip content
Drip content allows you to release content within a Product over time instead of giving the Member immediate access to everything up front.
With drip content you have the ability to set Categories or Sub-Categories in Kajabi to release any number of days after a Member gains access to the Product (i.e., from their Start Date).
For example, if you set a Category to release 7 days after your Member's start date, your Member will gain access to the Product Posts in the Dripped Category 7 days after their start date.
Therefore, if your Member gains access to your Product on a Sunday and you have set the first Category to drip 7 days after their start date, your Member will gain access to the dripped content the following Sunday, 7 days after their start date (or Purchase Date if you have not set a different start date).
This is a great tool if you want to have new content released to a member each day, week, or month after they join.
Keep in mind that Dripped content must be dripped no less than 1 day. If you set your Dripped content to 0, you will receive an error as it is equivalent to publishing the content. Instead, publish your content if you wish to release your new content immediately.
