Hello and welcome to another Moosend tutorial!
In this video, I will show you how to create your first email marketing campaign!
With Moosend, creating a regular campaign is very easy and the process consists of just a few simple steps.
Click on the New Campaign button.
Locate the Regular Campaign and click on the “Create” button.
Next, you’ll need to define the campaign settings. Start by setting up the available fields: Campaign name, Subject, Preview text which is optional, Sender, Reply to and Send Confirmation to.
If you would like to track your campaign at Google analytics, enable the option with a click.
Then, click on the Next button to continue.
The next step is to select the mailing list which will receive your campaign.
Keep in mind that you can choose more than one list. And if you have any subscribers contained on multiple lists, don’t worry! We do our magic and your email is only sent once!
When you’re ready click next.
Now let’s choose the appropriate format for your campaign.
There are 2 options: HTML and plain text, or Plain text only.
Plain text campaigns only contain text and you can’t add other design elements like images or links.
HTML and plain text campaigns let you add all kinds of images, fonts, and layouts, just like a web page.
Once you choose the right format for you, click on the Next button to continue.
To create your newsletter design click on the Take Me To The Editor button, and design your newsletter as previously shown.
For now, we will simply select a template from the Template Library.
You can either browse our various templates or choose your industry from the menu on the left and find the eCommerce templates we have designed especially for you. When you find the one that suits you, click Use Template and then click on the Update Campaign and Continue button.
Before sending your actual campaign you can test it to see how it looks! Just go to the Design and Delivery Test Tab, add your email to receive the campaign and simply check how it looks! You can add up to 5 email addresses, separated by commas, and send your campaign to them as a test.
If you don’t want to test your campaign, just click Skip Test.
If you want to send your campaign right away choose the Send this campaign immediately option.
You also have the option to schedule your campaign for a future date or time.
Choose the Schedule this campaign to be sent out at a future date and time option and specify the date, time and timezone.
Click on the Next button when you’re ready.
Take a look at all of your campaign details one more time and click on the Preview button to look at your newsletter design.
When you’re ready, click on the Send or Schedule button, depending on what you decided to do!
Congratulations! You’ve just created your first email marketing campaign!
Happy email marketing!
