Envoy Email Application
Getting Stared with Envoy.nazarene.org
We are using an application called MailWizz. Here are some concepts.
Each department is a customer in the system. That allows each department (Stewardship, P&B, and NMI etc.) to have their own lists and templates.
In order to start sending an email campaign, one starts by creating an email list. The email list identifies the sender, it contains sender information, and allows one to take various decisions related to your subscribers. Each list is separate, which means each list is customizable. This includes subscribers, custom forms/pages and custom fields.
Recipients of the sent email.
A Campaign is one use sending an email to your list of subscribers. The campaign is the email one creates and connects it to a list.
Combining these concepts into an example:
Email List: (dot) Stewardship Subscribers
Subscribers: firstname.lastname@example.org; email@example.com; firstname.lastname@example.org; etc.
Campaign: November Dot Stewardship Newsletter

Step 2: Add subscribers to your email list
After creating the email list, start importing the subscribers into the list. In order to do so, just click on the list title from lists area, click on the Tools box then the Import box. Imports can be from a csv file, a text file or from another database.
You can import from CSV such as this one:
You should see this with a successful import
Step 3: Create and Send a Campaign
Finally, after creating the list and adding subscribers to it, create the campaign. Select the list you want to use for sending and optionally, a segment from the list. The user can add a new template just for the campaign itself or use an existing one. Test all campaigns before actually sending them. Use this tool (http://www.mail-tester.com/). Once everything looks good, send the campaign.
