Scheduled Message Creation Overview

To create a message, you need to complete the following steps:

  1. Select recipients
  2. Create and edit content. In the Edit Content step, you can:
    • select a template
    • add enhancers, a commonly used form, such as a survey or unsubscribe request that you can add to your message.
    • add mail merge tags where you can use mail merge tags to personalize messages. For example, insert the recipient's name into the subject line to address each recipient by name.
    • preview the message.
    • send a Quick Test to specific email addresses. You might want to do this, for example, to see how your mail merge fields and dynamic content appears to different recipients.
  1. Test and proof: Optionally, you can send the message to your proof contacts to see how the message appears in recipient's inboxes. You can also generate Email Test reports, which give you information about the deliverability of your message, such as whether any elements of the message might cause it to be flagged as spam.
  2. After you create and test the message, you can either save it for editing later, send it right away, or schedule it for future delivery.
