Campaign Monitor: Create a new campaign
Once logged in to the newsletter software use the "Campaigns" tab to see the list of all campaigns sent in the past and to start a new campaign (newsletter).
Create a new campaign
Choose "Create a new campaign" - the button that sits atop the right hand column of the page.
The software will then ask you to fill-out a form with the details for your campaign - how is it to be named? (Term 1 Week 3 Junior School News) - make sure the naming scheme is one that makes sense to you and your colleagues.
Also fill-out the subject line that will appear in the recipients mail boxes. Give consideration to what will encourage people to open your correspondence when everybody gets so much email these days.
The "from" field will be the email address that represents the sending organisation.
Choose a Template
By default the system will show you a selection of recent emails. If you like you can select one that you like and simply update the text and images to make a new campaign.
Alternatively select "My templates" to start with a fresh newsletter.
If you have multiple templates in your organisation just select the one you want to use by clicking on the thumbnail image.
The system will then open the template in the editor where you can commence adding your articles and images as needed.
