1) Configure your account and user settings
2) Set up subscriptions and internal lists
Subscriptions allow your contacts to set their communication preferences by indicating what type of content they want to receive from you.
Watch this video about segmentation details and importing your contacts:
- Add subscriptions or remove all if you don't have multiple subscription options.
- You will be able to send emails to contacts based on their subscription settings.
- Subscriptions are shown on the Consent and Subscriptions Preferences page. This page is linked from every email you send.
- Internal lists are not public facing and can also be used to segment your list. For example your contacts shouldn't opt-in and out of internal lists such as "staff only" or "completed certification".
Read additional details to help with segmentation of your contact list.
3) Import your contacts
- Prepare your list as a CSV file. View a sample file.
- Go to the import page where you can upload and import your file.
- Be sure to assign an internal list or subscription during the import process so you can segment your contacts later.
- Duplicate records will be automatically merged by email address.
For additional details watch the "How to segment and import your list" video or read the detailed article about importing lists.
4) Create, test and send emails

5) Create and publish a form

6) Deliverability and branding
