Sending emails is a great way to build a long-lasting relationship with your customers. Email broadcast in EngageBay allows you to craft an email campaign that can be sent to an entire list of contacts or selected contacts. You can send newsletters, promotional emails, offer emails, and other announcement emails.
Using the EngageBay tool, you can gather enough information to understand users and their interests. Based on that information, you can create a list bound by certain interests or conditions and run a broadcast targeting them.
How to create an email broadcast
i. On your Marketing dashboard, hover your mouse over the Campaigns tab.
ii. Choose Email Broadcasts.
iii. In the upper right corner, click on the Create Broadcast button.
iv. Start by naming your broadcast. Choose Continue.
v. Enter Subject Line, From Email (it will show who is the sender), and Who is it from? (name of the person/company sending the email).
vi. Once done, click on Next. Under the Recipients tab, choose the list of contacts you want to send an email to. You can send a broadcast to All Contacts, Specified List, or based on a filter.
You need to create the list or filter prior to sending a broadcast so that it shows on the list, as an option.
