Create an Email Template

Before you can create an Email Campaign, you'll need to create an Email Template.

A template is the initial message that you'll send to everyone you want to contact as part of a given campaign.

1. Click Campaigns > Templates > New Email Template.

2. Complete the email template editor.

  • Name your template.
  • Create a subject for your email template. You can insert Variables like Recipient First Name to make it more personal.
  • Type your template in the “Email Body” field. You can add Variables like Recipient First Name, Sender First Name, or variables you create with the lists you upload or push from VAN.

    Default variables are required. They are helpful in the case that a contact you're emailing is missing some information. For example, if you only have the email of a contact, make the default variable "there" or "friend", so that when the email is sent, the greeting is "Hi there" or "Hi friend".
