I'm sending a special offer to a master list, but want to exclude a list of people who have already purchased. These purchasers have been imported as their own list.
Is it possible to automatically exclude these purchasers from this mailing by saying "mail to master, but exclude people on list A"?
Not that I am aware of. This can easily be done by just creating a second master list and then deleting the smaller list from it. The new list does not count against your total email address count. When your done you can keep the list or simply delete it.
CC really needs to add this. We previously used Exact Target, and really miss that feature. Is there an easy (automated) way to delete names? In other words, if I download my master list (currently 9,500 emails), and then download the list I'd like to exclude (250 emails), is there a way in Excel or another program where I can automatically remove emails on the smaller list from the larger list (without having to manually go through and delete all 250 emails)?
Not easliy, but you can. Copy the list of everyone into a temporary list. Then delete those in list two from the temporary list. Now you can use the temporary list for the mailing.
I don't have anything helpful to add to this except to say that this is a feature that I would love to see made available. I send out webinar invites to multiple lists - depending on the topic. When I send reminder emails it would be good to be able to separate out a list of the people I know have already signed up. I know that some other providers offer this function....
If you mail to both lists at the same time, Constant Contact will only send 1 email even if the address is on both lists. If you want to send to each list separately, your on you're own to eliminate the duplicates. Best bet is using Excel.
