Email Campaigns

This is the email campaign or newsletter section.

You can create new email campaigns/newsletters here.

6.a. Create Campaign Template

With every email campaign, you can include a pre defined email template. Usually the email template contains your company logo and basic details. You can create such a campaign template here. (Figure 6.a.1)

You can select the “Plain Text” or “HTML” format for your template. You can create your own campaign template in the box provided.

In this template you MUST USE the variable {content}, where you want to display your original email message. If this variable ({content}) is not present in the campaign template, the email will not contain the original mail content.

6.c. Create Email Campaign

This is the newsletter/campaign to send to your clients. (Figure 6.c.1)

To create a new campaign, first add a name to the campaign. Select the plain text or HTML format to create the campaign. Now you can select the template if any. You can create campaigns without templates also.

The mail subject and body content are mandatory. You can add the unsubsciption link in the email by placing the variable {unsubscribe-option} in the appropriate place.

Also you need to set the batch size. It is the number of emails to send in a single execution. If the batch size is 100, it will send to 100 email addresses in a single execution.

You can also include attachments with the email.

There is an option for execution start time. This will help you to send a campaign in a particular time if the auto cron feature is used in the system. The emails will send out on or after the execution time. You can leave this field to send the campaign instantly.
