How to: Send a One-Time Campaign

Created:   |   Updated:

ShippingEasy makes it easy to send a one-time email marketing Campaign to a specific set of customers. This is great when you have a message that you need to communicate just once to a selected list of customers.

NOTE: if you prefer to send an recurring email to your customers after their orders download or are shipped, setup an Automated Campaign instead. Learn more about Automated Campaigns.
Before sending a One-Time Campaign, prep the following:
  1. Create a Campaign template. Learn more.
  2. Compile a Customer List. Learn more.

These are the elements you can customize in a One-Time Campaign:

  • Body of the email
  • Subject line for the email
  • List of customer contacts
  • Name to display in the email's From field
  • Reply-to email address

To send a One-Time Campaign:

  1. Navigate to the Campaign Detail page - from the template editor or from the CAMPAIGNS page.
    From the template editor:
    1. Finish up any editing on your template.
    2. Click the blue Review & Send button.
     
    From the CAMPAIGNS page:
    1. From the blue navigation menu, expand the MARKETING tab and select NEWSLETTERS & PROMOTIONS.
    2. On the CAMPAIGNS page, locate the template you will use for the Automated Campaign. Click the template name.

  2. For Campaign Type, select One-Time Campaign.
  3. Specify the Subject Line for the email, a From Display Name to show in the email's From field, and a Reply To Email address.
    • Subject Line: this will be the first thing your customers see when they receive your email. Keep it short and attention grabbing!
    • From Display Name: this is what your customers will see as the sender of the email. You can customize the name, but the sender email address will always be messages@customers.shippingeasyemail.com
    • Reply To Email: this is the email address where any of your customer responses will be sent
