New campaigns can be created by clicking the Add campaign button at the bottom of the right panel. Enter the main campaign information when a new window shows up.
You can use, edit, and send your campaign repeatedly – always with the current content and to the current recipient list. You can always see in your reports when the campaign was sent, with what subject, content and specific recipients. For this reason, for example, one single campaign is sufficient for sending a regular weekly newsletter. Also, create new campaigns with a view to your future orientation in your account.
Message type: Email or SMS. This can not be changed later.
Campaign type: standard or remarketing
Name: Name of your campaign that will show up in the list (used for identification only).
Subject: Enter the subject of your campaign. This will be displayed to your recipients in the subject line. Subject can be changed at any time.
From: Select your sender address from the pull-down list. To add a new address click the Add address button and enter the desired email address. An email containing a verification link will be sent to this address. Once you click the link to verify the address will be available in the system for you to send your campaigns. Campaigns can be sent using verified addresses only. If you don't see the address you have added in the list it means it has not been verified yet. For more information see Address management.
Mailing lists: Select one or more mailing lists you want to send your campaign to. If you don't see any mailing lists you have to create one first. In case you select multiple mailing lists the system will take care of duplicate recipients during delivery. Mailing lists can be assigned later on.
Once you have created your campaign you can change it's settings and content. By clicking the name of the campaign in the campaigns list you get to the campaign details page.
This is where the most important settings of your campaign are found. You can edit the values by moving your mouse over each row and clicking the Edit button and editing the selected value. You can change the Name, Subject, Sender address, mailing lists as well as attachments this way.
TIP!: If you need to send each recipient a different attachement you can do it the following way:
1) save each file to your website so each file has it's URL address (eg. www.mailkit.eu/guides/mailkit-quickstart-en.pdf)
2) add a custom field to each recipient (eg. "custom 20") with the URL address of the file to be used as attachment in the following format: http_attach://www.mailkit.eu/guides/mailkit-quickstart-en.pdf
3) insert the following into the HTML body of your campaign:
<!-- attach_hidden [CUSTOM20] attach_hidden -->
