Before sending a mailing out you need
to first create your content. This is much like writing a report. To begin
creating your content click on the "Content" button and go to "New Content".
After clicking on "New
will get a new window like below. The first tab is the "Essentials"
tab. Here you give your message content a name and description. The
"From" address will have your email. The "To:" box will display "%%nameemail%%.
This code will then insert the member's email that is in your
subscribers. You also need a "Subject" title.
The next tab is the "HTML Message" tab. Here you can
design and create your content using the icons in the HTML editor.
You have "Font, Background, Text and Table" icons. As you create
your content you can click on the "Preview" button to see how your
content will be displayed.
The "Images" tab is where you can manage
your images. There is a manage "Image Library" on the right.
Clicking on the "Manage Library" will open a new window that will
allow you to add images by inserting a URL of an image you have
previously uploaded to your website.
Click on the "Remote Image" button to
add URL of your image location.
Add Image URL
Type in or paste the URL location of your image. It
normally will be something similar to "http://example.com/images/imagename.jpg"
where example.com is the name of your website.
The "Text Message" tab is for plain text messages.
Some people do not have HTML capabilities
and can not see images or HTML. Providing plain text here your
subscribers can still read your content.
The "Advanced" tab allows you to configure your
content for additional options like:
Attachments: You can browse and
search for a file like a PDF to attach to your email newsletter.
Additional Headers: that describes
who the message is from, who it is addressed to, how the message
should be displayed.
Join Other Tables: This option would
allow you to access data in other tables in your database
like your "Demographics" you created for your members.
This tab allows you to create content in an
alternate character. This requires that you have that
character set installed on your system and that you have a means of
editing or entering your message in that character set.
Once you have gone through all the tabs you can now
save for testing or create a new mailing to send to your
