Best way to send email to individual email address

My client loves the stats and ease of editing up cool looking email templates and wants to use constanct contact to send out emails to incoming leads one at a time. Right now it takes way to many steps to do this... any suggestions on how to have the best of both worlds?

 

Can the constant contact design templates be downloaded and sent out of outlook and still have access to the stats?

 

Thanks for any suggestions.

Hi NoeviaL1

There isn't a way to do this since the templates are Constant Contact property. Have you tried creating a new list with only contains the contacts you want to mail?

 

A QuickSend might also work in this situation. QuickSend allows you to send a previously sent email to one (or a few) contacts at a time. You can select from the past 20 sent emails in your account when Quicksending. Check out this FAQ for more on how Quicksend works. I would suggest even looking into creating an Autoresponder in your account. Through an Autoresponder you can send a set of up to 15 predetermined emails to be sent over time to contacts being added to specific lists.

Re: Best way to send email to individual email address

Hello Angie, have you tried setting up autoresponders? They are perfect for that task. You can set up a series of emails to go out to the individuals based on the day they join your list. To set up autoresponders click on your email tab in your account. Then click on autoresponders tab. There is a video tutorial there you can watch. Hope that helps Maurice B.

Re: Best way to send email to individual email address

My reply is super late to answer the original question but in the hopes of helping the next person that comes across this topic, this was my solution:

 

  1. Create a new contact list and add yourself as the ONLY contact in this list (your name and an email you have access to)
  2. Label this list as something obvious ex. SINGLE RECIPIENT to avoid any confusion
  3. Send your composed email campaign to ONLY this list so you are the only recipient
  4. Once this initial email is sent you should be able to go back at any point in the future and RESEND it to any single contact
  5. Find the intended recipient in your contact list, check mark next to their name, go to the top of list and find the drop down tab that says More Actions, chose Quicksend, choose the email campaign that you sent to yourself. They will now be the only recipient of this email and you should be able to quickly use this method each time from there on out
