Part of running a successful blogging business is maintaining an active Email list. Without subscribers, the work that you are doing on your blog and other forms of communication really goes to waste. Fortunately, there is a great tool available to help you manage your email list that won’t break your wallet – ConvertKit.
ConvertKit is a powerful email marketing platform that offers automation, list building, campaign development, and more. If you are thinking about switching from MailChimp (like I did a month ago) you will not be sorry that you did. Although I was using the free version of MailChimp, I felt that I was being limited in the number of options I had to track clicks and purchases through my campaigns.
The majority of the time, I use ConvertKit to send out individual email broadcast (campaign in Mailchimp). This is very different than sending out an email campaign through MailChimp, so I am going to walk you through how to accomplish this today by composing and sending an actual email broadcast to my subscribers.
Ready? Let’s go.
Sign in to ConvertKit
Choose “Broadcasts” from the top menu
Select “New Broadcast” on the right side of the screen
Select who is sending the broadcast. In my case it’s me, so it defaults to my email address
Select the subscribers who will receive your broadcast. In most cases, this should be set to “All Subscribers.” ConvertKit allows you to add filters based on various demographics of the subscriber as an optional feature.
Choose “Next Step” once you have selected your subscribers
Title your broadcast to your liking. A catchy title will entice more subscribers to read your email.
Compose your broadcast. ConvertKit’s editor comes with a standard text editor as well as an option to personalize the email. If you collect first names as a part of your subscribe form, you can opt to have the email address your subscriber by first name to make it more personal.
Once you have your email composed to your liking, choose the email template you want to use. You can choose from: Account Default, Classic, and Modern. If you want to see a preview before you send your broadcast, you can do that in this step.
Click “Next Step”
Here you can preview your email one last time before sending or scheduling it. If you want to send the email at a specific time in the future, click the link above the “Send Broadcast” button that says “schedule.” If you want to send the email now, click “Send Broadcast.” You will get one final popup to make sure you are ready to send. Click the red “Send Broadcast” button again.
That’s all it takes to send a broadcast. You will then be taken back to your broadcast list so that you can see the statistics of your new broadcast. These will update real-time!
