Mail merge works directly from your own outbox – so your emails are the same as if you’d handwritten each one yourself.
Why Mail Merge?
Mail merge is the best way to run your email marketing when you want to build relationships.
It makes your customers feel like people not numbers.
It makes it super-easy for your customers to respond.
It gets your email into their primary inbox.
Don’t use it if you plan to send junk. Primary inboxes are personal spaces.
You need to earn the right to stay there.
How it works…
2. Add custom fields
Personalise each email by adding custom fields that populate during the merge.
Popular fields such as “First Name”, “Last Name” and “email” are automatically available – but you can add any that you like including text, numbers and dates.
4. Create custom mail lists
Add recipients from your contact list. Proof emails and when you’re happy, hit send. Each email is sent from your outbox to give a personal touch.
Managing mail lists is easy with EmailBee – you can easily add tags to individual or multiple contacts. You can also create custom fields with restricted options and mass populate those for selected contacts.
Is there a limit to the number of emails or contacts I can have?
In the beta version we haven’t set a limit – although that may change when we go live. To manage strain on the server we have limited the number of contacts you can import in one go (approx 10,000) and we have limited any single mail merge to 500 recipients (but you can run multiple mail merges).
Which email providers does mail merge work with?
EmailBee works with Gmail and any provider that accepts SMTP email sending.
Who sends the email?
Unlike many email marketing providers, we send the email through your own email account. Other companies send it from their own server but mark it with your email address. We’ve found this reduces deliverability.
