Each campaign begins with creating a new, or selecting a mailing list of recipients. You can create as many different lists as you need for your business.

You can open .CSV files in most spreadsheet applications, such as Microsoft Excel, edit the list, and then upload to your Mighty Mail account. More about .CSV files and how to create them.
New signups from your website are automatically routed into your Mighty Mail account. Other metrics such as unsubscribes or bounces are also managed internally. For example, every Email you send includes a single-click ” unsubscribe link, and our preference center feature allows your subscribers to manage their own subscription.

Once you have created content and uploaded your mailing list, we recommend that you ‘test’ your campaign by sending it to your individual Email address. You want to make sure you are happy with the way the campaign would appear to your recipients. This is your chance to make adjustments to your writing or images without others seeing your mistakes.
After you have tested your campaign, you are ready schedule a ‘delivery’. Follow the steps to attach your subscriber list. You can send your campaign immediately or schedule the delivery for a date and time.
