There are two ways in which anyone can start creating a new campaign irrespective of the method they use. You can use "Campaigns" tab or if you are on the Dashboard you can click on the "Create New Campaign" link under the Quick Links.
If you look at the campaign browser screenshot above you will realize that it gives you the ability to browse through the campaigns within your account. You will also be able to track all the campaigns which are sent, are in outbox, are being created and in draft mode, are scheduled, are paused and are pending approval.
You can manage tags which can allow you to categorize your campaigns.
Oempro integrates seamlessly with the Google Analytics web service to help you track recipient activities on your website coming from your campaign.
We will learn about this feature in details in a separate topic - click here for detailed information.
Campaign Email Creation Step 1
Campaign Email Creation Step 2 / Template Selection
Campaign Email Creation Step 3 / Content
The above email content builder will help you add your own content within the available editable regions. Oempro has an advanced template engine which allows you to easily edit your content within the pre-defined campaign template.
In order to edit the content you just have to place your mouse on the content box and click your left mouse key once - if the area is editable it will give you the "Edit" menu as shown in the below screenshot.
In the above screenshot we can see "Edit" as well "Duplicate" - this means the region we clicked on can be edited with custom content and you can also duplicate the block of text as well.
When you click the edit button it will give you the editor which can be seen in the below screen shot.
If you take a look at the screenshot you will see that the Good News title can be edited in the shown box. You can change it to anything you wish.
Similarly there are editable regions which can also accept the html content, the above editable region is a text only region.
Once your content is populated you can simply hit the "Save" button and save the content and get out of the content editing screen. Now click on the "Next" button found on the campaign email creation wizard to go to the final "Review" of your campaign email.
The last step of campaign email creation is the preview of your campaign's content. You can verify how does it look by sending an email to a designated email address or on your browser.
The review screen will also give you the details of the content analysis and spam testing.
Once you verify the preview and satisfied with the campaign email content click on the "Next" button to go to the campaign scheduling screen.
Use the drop down menu "send" to schedule the campaign
There are four scheduling options available for every campaign
If this option is selected the campaign will start sending immediately.
On given date and time
If you select this option then you will have to set the date and time for the campaign to start sending emails to your mailing lists.
If this option is selected you will be allowed to set the time and date along with the repeat frequency of your campaign.
If this option is selected then the campaign will be saved under the drafts folder and will never start.
