6. Put your Stamp on it

Your confirmation and welcome emails are going to be the first impression your subscribers get about your newsletter. They're also places to greet customers and ask them to be added to their safe senders list. Both emails are pre-setup and automatically sent when you created your account.

Editing the confirmation email:

  • Click on the Contact list tab and click on the list name.
  • Click on Manage Emails on the left hand menu.
  • Under Subscription Confirmation Email you will see the option to preview and edit both HTML and text versions of the email, send a test, and active/deactivate it.
  • Click on Edit Email and customize it any way you want.

    No matter what you do, keep the [CONFIRM LINK] tag
    
  • Make the changes to the plain text version too: click on the “Text” tab and edit appropriately.

  • Send yourself a test and make sure everything shows the way you want it to.

Editing the welcome email:

  • Click on the Contact list tab and click on the list name.
  • Click on Manage Emails on the left hand menu.
  • Under Welcome Email you will see the option to preview and edit both HTML and text versions of the email, send a test, and active/deactivate it.
  • Click on Edit Email and customize it any way you want. Remember:
    • Say hi!
    • This is a great opportunity to ask them to add you to their safe senders list
    • Ask them to display the images
    • Tell them how often they can expect to hear from you
    • Most importantly, say thank you!
  • Make the changes to the plain text version too: click on the “Text” tab and edit appropriately.
  • Send yourself a test and make sure everything shows the way you want it to.

Note: Welcome and confirmation emails cannot be edited within a trial account.
