Create a Marketing Email

In your Marketing Center you have the ability to choose from a library of marketing designs that are optimized for email, to send to your contacts.  By emailing your marketing materials to your contacts, you are able to quickly engage your contacts with relevant information in a cost-effective manner!

Email Your Marketing Design

To add contacts to receive your email, click the To button.

Next, you’ll see a list of all eligible contacts on the left. You will only see contacts that have valid, deliverable email addresses. There are three options to find and add contacts to your marketing email:

  • Add an individual contact
  • Add a contact group
  • Search for a specific contact
Add an Individual Contact

To add an individual contact, click the Add button next to each contact's name and their name will appear in the contact list on the right.

Add a Contact Group

To add a contact group to receive your email, click the All Groups drop down menu.

Check the box next to each group you want to add.

Next, close the groups list by clicking anywhere in the window. The list of eligible contacts will be filtered to show only contacts in the selected group(s) and the total number of eligible contacts will display.

Click Add All Eligible Contacts to add them to your mailing list and they will appear in the contact list on the right.

The system will automatically prevent a contact from being added multiple times. For example, if you add an individual contact, and then add a group that contact is in, they will already have been selected, so will not be added twice.

 Search for a Specific Contact

To find a specific contact, start typing the contact’s name or email address in the search field. Once you start typing, the list will automatically adjust to match your search.

When you have found your contact, click the Add button next to their name. The contact name will now appear in the list on the right side.

Once you have added the contacts you wish to send your email to, click the Save & Continue button (if you want to remove any contacts from the list, click the Remove button next to their name).

Share Your Marketing Design on Social Media

When you’ve selected your saved email design, you’ll have the option to share it on social media. To do so, on the design detail page click the check box next to Publish to Web and Share.

The social media options will appear only after marking the check box.

From here, simply copy the displayed URL for your marketing design.

Click the social media icon where your design will be shared and you will be redirected to that social media page.

For example, if you are sharing on Facebook, once you click the Facebook icon, you will be directed to Facebook, where you can login and post your design.

Then, while on your Facebook page, you’ll paste the URL you just copied into the status bar and click Post.
