I am a web designer, ad agency or ISP. How can I offer ThinkEmailer.com to my clients?
ThinkEmailer.com was built from the ground up to help service providers such as web designers, advertising / marketing agencies and ISP's offer a do-it-yourself email marketing solution to their clients. ThinkEmailer.com is a multi-user solution that means you can create a user account for each one of your clients, so they have access to their own "control panel". From inside this control panel, they can create and send email campaigns, view statistics and so forth. You can create an email template for them to use, or they can choose one of the built in email templates.
You can choose to let them create and send their own email campaigns, or you can do it on their behalf.
Every email that gets sent out is sent from the email address and URL that you define, so the recipient sees the email coming from your clients domain and not yours. You can private label ThinkEmailer.com Email Marketer with your own logo, color scheme etc so your clients see it as your own solution and not ours. There are many other service provider specific features such as email throttling, user specific timezones and more.
There's also a user guide available to members of the partner program. This is a PDF file and can be obtained through request to the ThinkEmailer.com team at email@example.com .
Can I have custom fields like First name, Last name, Address in my subscription forms?
Yes, ThinkEmailer.com Email Marketer has the capability of allowing you to create unlimited "Custom fields" including names, addresses, dates and more. Simply select the "Manage Custom Fields" option (In the 'Newsletter' drop down menu) to create, edit and delete your custom fields.
Once you have created your custom fields, create a new subscription form (or edit your existing form) and select the custom fields you wish to include.
Once you have done that, you'll need to "Get HTML" for the subscription form and copy the new form HTML to your website.
To insert Custom Fields into your newsletter or autoresponder click on the "Insert Custom Field" link underneath the WYSIWYG HTML editor (HTML emails) or underneath the Text Area (Text emails). A popup window will appear asking you to select which Custom Field you'd like to include.
Is it possible to create personalized emails, e.g. 'Dear Mr. NAME' or 'Dear Mrs. NAME'?
Yes, such personalized emails use what we refer to as "Custom Fields". Custom fields can be created from the Contact List menu and users will be able to enter in data when they subscribe.
Once you've created your Custom fields, create (or edit) your subscription form and select the Custom fields you'd like to display. Once you've added the subscription form to your website, users will be prompted to enter in the relevant information when subscribing to your contact list.
To insert a custom field into your newsletter or autoresponder, click on the "Insert Custom Field" link underneath the WYSIWYG editor (HTML emails) or Text editor (Text Emails.) A popup window will appear asking you to select the Custom Field you would like to insert.
Can I automatically send out emails at some time interval after a user joins my contact list?
Yes, such automated emails are referred to as Autoresponders. ThinkEmailer.com allows unlimited autoresponders that can be setup to send emails after a user signs up to the newsletter and a period of time has lapsed.
ThinkEmailer.com currently works with a delay based on hours after your contact joins your contact list. You can make this into days simply by adding together the hours. That is 24 hours is one day, 72 hours is 3 days and so on.
To do this, simply click on the Autoresponders tab in the control panel. Here you will be presented with the option of managing your existing autoresponders as well as creating a new one. Clicking "Create Autoresponder" will prompt you with an easy to follow step by step wizard in creating your autoresponder.
If you already have imported users into a contact list, you can send them autoresponder emails too! When editing your autoresponder, check the box labeled "Send to existing contacts?". Email Marketer will do a one-time check for any existing users who meet the time interval requirements you have set, and queue them to receive the autoresponder also. This option will not save, so next time you edit that particular autoresponder, it will be unchecked, enabling you to do it again.
