1. Create

Set up your profile and preferences

  • Select your colors and fonts to match your branding and give us your logo.
  • Give us the email address you want people to reply to.
  • Enter the name and contact information of your list manager (the person responsible for managing your campaign).

Build your newsletters

  • To create an Issue of your newsletter, first select a template that matches the layout you desire. The logo and colors that chose in your profile will automatically be applied to the template. If our templates don’t suit your needs, we can build a template for you.
  • For each article in the Issue, enter the Title, a short Teaser and either the Full Text or a link to a Web Page (this web page can be any thing anywhere you want) and add it to your newsletter.
  • We assemble your articles within the layout you have chosen and create the links to either the full text or the Web Page you have entered. If it is a link to the Full Text that you have entered, we will create a web page where the Full Text will reside. That way your readers can quickly scan the Titles and Teasers of your web page and click to read the ones that interest them.
  • Not only will your newsletters be sent in the rich HTML format you’ve selected but people with older email programs (a minority of email users) will be able to read them as text-only.

Enter your list of email addresses.

  • Send us a file from Excel, Outlook or whatever or type them in manually.
  • Just like when you give us your credit card, when you send us your mailing list, it is over a secure connection (SSL). We keep your list safe on our servers which are locked down tightly (both on the Internet and in the real world), and backed up regularly.
  • Along with the email address, you can store the person’s name, city, state/province, country and/or *any other information you desire in user-defined fields.

2. Send

  • After sending a proof to yourself, send your newsletters with the click of a button or, *schedule them to be sent later.
  • Our powerful servers and high speed Internet connection distribute your newsletters in a flash.

3. Manage
