Constant Contact - Newsletter Tutorial

I get asked a lot of questions about my newsletters.... How I do certain things, etc.  I thought I would share some of what I do with you, starting with my last newsletter, which I posted recently.

First, you will need to select the type of wizard that you want to use...


I always choose 'use the new email wizard'

Next you'll need to choose what kind of email you are sending....



Typically I click on newsletters.... my newsletter is done using the format People II.  This last newsletter blast was done using 'promotions....



Clearly I changed the photo to a shot of a room of the home that we had staged.  The sale price was changed to the MLS number, etc...



now, adding in the links.... This is done much the same way that we add links here in AR.  When you are editing the blocks, you will notice on the toolbar to the left a box that says Insert.  Underneath are 'image' and 'link'


This gives you the ability to add links and photos anywhere you like! 

I hope this answers all your questions!  If not, let me know and I'll do my best to help out.....

If you are ready to try constant contact & want a free trial plus $30 credit when you join, email me and I'll send you a referral ....

Does your datebook have 'snow blindness'? Fill it up… here's how!
Snow blindness - the overwhelming glow of white on white. In your datebook this is not a good thing! It means that you aren't making any money. For most of us, that is simply unacceptable. I don't know about you, but I like to eat and frankly… more

Speaking Their Language… Can you do it?
So often we (myself included) get frustrated with agents who don't understand the value of staging. We try to tell them using our language, but can you speak theirs? I ask this because Tori Lynn Ross just posted the blog E-Key Access For Home… more
It wasn't the staging, it was the price reduction… uh… yeah…
This may be one of my most frustrating comments to hear. I was thinking on this because of a home that we recently staged that went under contract. I did an email blast to all of the agents that also have listings in that community. I did this… more
