To create an email campaign, log in to your dashboard and select the "My Email Campaigns" tile.
If you are already logged in to
your dashboard, select the Email Campaigns icon along the top
To send a campaign, you need to have a sender address and contact list ready:
- Sender Address:
Your login address is your default sender, but you can set up additional addresses and even validate a domain. Remember, you can only use addresses you own or manage.
- Contact List:
By default, you have one existing contact list (“MyFirstTest”) which contains your email address. You can create an unlimited number of contact lists with our Email Marketing tool. You can even personalize your campaigns by adding contact properties (name, age, etc.) to your contact lists. See this article on creating contact lists.
Select the "Campaigns" tab. Select "My Campaigns", and then select "New campaign".
The "Create a new campaign" page shows the different sections of your campaign that need to be completed:
- Campaign Name: This is an internal name for your campaign that only you see
- Language: Set the language for your campaign
- Subject: The subject of your campaign as it appears in your recipient's inbox
- From: Enter the name your recipients will see in the 'from' field and the sending address
- Content: Design your content with our responsive email editor
- Contact List: Select your contact list
As you complete each section, the corresponding checkmark will become green.
Once basic information is added, such as "Subject" and "From", you can start designing the body of your email.
Now the fun part: designing your campaign with our email editor. Simply drag and drop content blocks into your campaign, and then select a section to customize it.
You can preview your campaign on different devices and send a test campaign to view how it will look.
Once you have completed your campaign design, select "Review & Send".
On the "Create a new campaign" page, you can review your sections and make any necessary changes.
Select your contact list.
Once all sections are completed, you can schedule your campaign up to 60 days in advance or send it immediately.
Congratulations on creating and sending your first campaign!
You can view your scheduled campaigns along with some stats by selecting the "Scheduled" or "Sent" tab.
