Campaigns can be sent to multiple lists and you can view data on the different campaigns.
NB* Please create your enews in a word document first then copy and paste the information across. We ask you do this so that if your campaign fails to save you haven't lost all your hard work.
Once you have created Lists and imported Subscribers, you are ready to send campaigns!
Step 1: Creating a New Campaign
Click on the “Campaigns” tab along the top, and then click the “Create a new Campaign” on the right or the “Create New” button at the bottom.
You now have the option to choose from a number of different campaign types:
Regular Campaign- This is a great campaign type to start with. This can be used when you want to send a mailing once and do not require any special timing or recurring features.
Recurring Mailing - Choose this campaign type if you want to create a campaign that will keep sending at a specific interval of days.
AutoResponde Campaign - An auto responder is an email that will send out after a specific period of time (after a subscribe subscribes) This allows you to setup an email to be sent instantly upon subscription, 24 hours later, 3 weeks after that, etc..
Split Testing - This type of campaign allows you to test a number of messages (by sending to a certain percent of your list) and then the software will determine the best message (based on read & link click through rates) and send that winning message to the remainder of the list.
Text Only – Unformatted – no stationery mail
RSS Campaign Create a campaign that will send whenever an RSS feed is updated. Such as having an update send whenever you update your blog.
Step 2 : Choosing a Campaign type
We suggest for simple one-time campaigns, choose “Regular Campaign”. Once your Campaign type has been selected, provide and internal name (this name appears internally – you’ll have the option to provide an email subject later). Click “Next”.
