The Email Marketing tool comes with your Zibster account, and works in conjunction with the Contacts tool as part of our client relationship builder. If you're not already taking advantage of this tool, below is a guide to getting started using this powerful marketing tool.
The first thing to do is to click on the paper airplane icon for Marketing to access the Email MARKETING tool. From there, hover over SETTINGS and you'll see LOGO, FOOTER, and SOCIAL MEDIA.
Access each of these items one at a time and add your logo, information you'd like to see in the footer, and your social media icons.
This is important because all three of these pieces will show on every email/landing page you create (unless you disable it on the individual campaign). Having these pieces of information on your campaigns will help with brand recognition as well as interaction with your brand with the social media icons.
After your branding has been added, click on CAMPAIGN BUILDER to get started with setting up your first campaign. Select the category your first campaign fits into (or customize your categories first if you'd like).
Click on NEW and you will see a list of templates in different categories. Click on SELECT for the template you'd like to use. From here, you just need to tweak the sample to fit your business and the message you are sending. You can edit your theme with the PAINTBRUSH icon, rename or add an additional footer with the GEAR icon, as well as drag and drop the different elements of the campaign within the builder.
