Send to Multiple Lists at Once

Easily send your email campaign to multiple contact lists in one send. Duplicate emails are removed automatically before sending.

Dynamic Content Blocks

Dynamic content blocks allow you to personalize a section of your email message based on custom field values. For example, if the subscriber’s hobby is golf, you can show a golf ball. If it’s hockey, you can show a hockey stick, etc.

Automatic Inbox Preview

For maximum impact and click thrus it’s important that your email looks the same in all of the popular email clients, which isn’t always easy.

Luckily Advanced Email Marketer’s inbox preview tool shows how your email will look in all of the popular email clients (Yahoo, Gmail, Hotmail, Outlook, etc).

If something is found to be out of place, you’re shown exactly what to change to ensure maximum inbox compatibility.

 

HTML, Text or Both (Multipart)

Create beautiful HTML emails, informative text emails or both using the integrated campaign editor. Multipart emails are sent as HTML and text and your subscriber’s email client will show whichever version it supports best.

CAPTCHA Form Support

Eliminate automated submissions from your website signup form by enabling CAPTCHA form support.

Pause & Resume Sending

From the “Scheduled Emails” page you can see a list of emails waiting to send and you can even pause and resume emails that have started sending.

Autoresponder Features

Create Multiple Autoresponders

Autoresponders are emails which get sent to a contact after they’ve been on your list for a certain time, such as 24 hours or 2 weeks.

Advanced Email Marketer allows you to create multiple, sequential autoresponder emails for each of your contact lists.

Filter the Recipient List

You can assign an autoresponder to your entire list or only a portion of it, such as those in New York with under 10 employees or leads from last week’s trade show who have ticked the “Send me more information” box on your signup form.

This means you can assign multiple autoresponders to one list based on custom filters instead of separating your contacts across multiple lists.

HTML, Text or Both (Multipart)

Create beautiful HTML emails, informative text emails or both using the integrated campaign editor. Multipart autoresponders are sent as HTML and text and your subscriber’s email client will show whichever version it supports best.

Open/Link/Unsubscribe Reporting

Just like email campaign statistics you can see who opened your autoresponder, which links they clicked on and more, including unsubscribe and bounce reports.
