Manage your contacts
The foundation of great email marketing is a clean, well organized and up-to-date list of email contacts.
Before adding your contacts, you should consider organizing them into groups. A group can be anything that has a meaning to your company or the type of your email newsletters. Try creating groups like “customers”, “vendors”, “colleagues”, etc. Of course, each contact may belong to more than one groups. A contact may be both a customer and a colleague.
You can upload your contacts in numerous ways: Upload an Excel spreadsheet or Text file, copy paste the email addresses, or add them one by one manually . It’s up to you.
If you don’t have any contacts yet, don’t worry! Ether Mailer offers you various tools to create signup forms, which you can easily customize and post on your website, eshop or Facebook Page.
Create a campaign
Now the interesting part: Create and send your campaign.
Ether Mailer offers you a variety of tools and editors to compose your Email Newsletter. Furthermore our File Manager stores all your uploaded files, that can be used again, if needed, in the future. You may also use the same newsletter design in future campaigns.
Each campaign may be sent to more than one contact groups. Ether Mailer assures that your contacts (recipients) will not receive duplicate email newsletters.
Furthermore, you can choose to send the campaign immediately or schedule it for a later date or time.

Am I a spammer?
Ether Mailer does not tolerate spam. We take sending reputation very seriously, in order to protect you and us by being blacklisted.
Ether Mailer constantly and automatically checks the email reputation and reviews all Email Newsletters.
We encourage all our users to use double optin contact lists. When your contacts double optin, you have greater chances to pass our auto newsletter reviewer and thus, your emails to reach the recipient’s inboxes.
Try to answer the following questions:
1. Are my contacts unaware of my business?
2. Did I buy the contact list?
3. Do I offer loans, gambling, sexual content, work from home, easy money, misleading coupons, etc?
4. Is the content of the email or the links misleading? Do the links land to a website other than expected?
If you have answered at least one of the questions with YES, most propably Ether Mailer will reject your campaigns. There is a “no refund” policy for those situations.
