Have you tried our Broadcast Email Tutorial ?
Please note that you will be billed for all broadcast e-mails and broadcast faxes. This fee is in addition to your subscription fees. Please also note that special conditions apply to the use of CompleteCampaigns.com's broadcast e-mail and broadcast fax service. Please read these conditions prior to using this service. Failure to abide by these conditions may result in your service being terminated or additional fees being assessed.
Broadcast e-mails and broadcast faxes are Custom Reports. Under the category Reports, click on Custom Reports.
Like any custom report, you will create a query to define whom you want this e-mail sent. See Defining Queries if you need help creating a query.
Once you have defined your query, you may select the export method “Broadcast Fax” or “Broadcast E-mail.”
Important Note on Broadcast E-mails: Always type your letters into the text box. Do not copy and paste them from a previously created word document. This causes the Broadcast Email to perform incorrectly. If you have a Word Document that you wish to put into an e-mail, copy and past it into notepad or wordpad and then copy and paste it into the text box.
The Broadcast Fax page will open in a new window.
At the top, the Batch Details will tell you how many records resulted from your query and how many of those records have fax numbers.
If you click include a cover page, a plain e-mail fax cover sheet will appear that you can fill in with the appropriate information.
By click the Browse button, you will choose a file from your desktop that you wish to fax. Select the document and click the Open button. You will now see the path of the document you will be faxing.
You may test the fax by putting your fax number in Test Fax Number and click the Test Fax button. This will give you a good idea what your fax will look like when sending to the persons on your query.
Finally, when you are ready to send your fax, click the Broadcast Fax button.
The Broadcast E-mail page will open in a new window.
On the right, the Batch Details will tell you how many records resulted from your query and how many of those records have e-mail addresses. You will also have the option for stationary if you have SiteBuilder. If you do not have the option for stationary, and you would like to have us customize stationary for you, you may call us for a price quote.
The From field should be the name of the person this is e-mail should be from (i.e. John Doe).
The E-mail field should be the e-mail that you submitted to us. If you are approved to send from multiple e-mail addresses, you may click on the arrow and any additional e-mail will appear there for selection.
In the Message Field you may type the message you would like to send out. You may also use merge fields (i.e. Salutations), and all font controls (i.e. bold, italics).
When editing your message, be careful not to modify the merge fields as this can cause problems in your final e-mails.
