Quick Start Guide
Lets get this show on the road
MPZMail is an email marketing platform that provides you with an easy way to obtain and manage contacts, compose beautiful email templates, and finally send and track the results.
Here's how to get your first email campaign out in just a few steps...
Step 1 - Create your account
If you haven't done so already, you will need to create a free account before you can login and start sending. Head over to our control panel and register your free account before you move on with this guide.
Step 2 - Add a Group
Once you are logged in, it would be useful to add a contact or two to send a campaign to. But before we can do this, we need to add a new group into which the contacts can go.
Towards the top of the page you will see some links, one of them will say "Contacts". Click this..
Now click the Group tab and then use the button to Add a group towards the top right of the page...
A drawer will slide out with lots of options for adding a group. Make sure you fill in all of the fields here. They are important because later on when your contacts manage their profiles they will be able to see a lot of the information you enter here. It helps contacts to know who you are, where you got their details and what you are about so take a few minutes to fill this out...
Filled in all of the details? Click the "Add a new Group" button at the bottom of the popup and your new group will appear on the left of the page. Click its name and you will enter the group.
Step 3 - Add Contacts to the Group
Now you have a group, you can add contacts to it. You can import one by one by typing them in, copy and paste lots in one go or even import from a spreadsheet or another service like Shopify.
For now we are going to add just one contact by manually typing their details.
Towards the top of the page click Add Contacts and use the option to Add a Contact.
Enter your contact's details and then click the Add Contact button at the bottom of the form.
Congratulations! You have added your first contact. You can carry on adding more if you like, or find out about how to add en-mass here.
Sending a Campaign
Now lets really test this thing. Lets create a test email campaign which we can send to the contact(s) we just added.
This sounds complicated but its actually a piece of cake!
Towards the top right of the page you will see a big button that says Create New+. Click it and select the option for Campaign.
A new page will slide into view asking you to select the campaign type (Email, A/B Split test or SMS) and to give your new campaign a name. This is just a friendly name for you reference, nothing the contacts will see, so give it any name you like and then click "Create Campaign"
Your campaign will be created in draft mode and you will be forwarded to the start of the campaign setup wizard, which comprises of three really easy steps to getting your campaign out.
Add Subscribers to your Campaign
In order to send your campaign, you need to select which contacts to send to. From the page you are on, click the section that says Click here to choose groups and segments.
A drawer will slide out, enabling you to click tick boxes next to the groups of contacts you would like to send to. You can select multiple groups if needed. We work out if you have duplicate contacts in each group and only send the mail once to each contact.
Once you have selected some groups, click the Next Step button at the bottom of the page to carry on.
