Sharlene Lynch
19:06
yes
Sharlene Lynch
22:08
YES much easier.....
Sharlene Lynch
22:23
just needs to be the same order
Sharlene Lynch
23:01
Yes... so many
Sue Bromley
23:13
Your right Sharlene - Ive done it where is wasn’t in the same order and it was hard work correcting it all
Sharlene Lynch
23:41
Easy to sort the EXCEL sheet before copy paste
Sue Bromley
24:03
Yes i definitely will be doing that next time :)
Sharon Boath
24:06
Yes that is what I do!
Sharlene Lynch
24:10
into the same sequence
Sharlene Lynch
24:49
data integrity ... so important
Sharlene Lynch
25:44
OH YES Its happened to me... I received a warning
Sharlene Lynch
26:14
I imported and OLD data base ... people were not happy to be contacted
Trevor Hayley
27:03
It is always tricky to know when to add someone and not add someone. Do you have any thoughts?
Sue Bromley
28:15
ahhh i must have missed that step
Evelyn Pollard
28:25
so do you recommend exporting the contacts from Mailchimp, clean it up and then import?>
Sharon Boath
29:26
Hi Trevor, most of my email contact, I ask if they would like to join my email group, I can either set up for them, or I provide the link in the email
Jack Henderson
29:49
Can I use Google Sheets rather than Excel for my list?
Sharlene Lynch
31:32
ask them to take the action to unsubscribe... most will not take action
Trevor Hayley
31:46
Thanks Sharon. Would you please subscribe me to yours. trevorhayley@internode.on.net
Sharon Boath
32:17
Certainly Trevor :-)
Sharlene Lynch
37:20
how often is often?
Michelle Charlton
37:42
are you allowed to send to two different groups (different because of how they came to you) to introduce the other side of your business that they may not be aware of?
Sharlene Lynch
39:07
I always pop myself on the list so I can see the end result even thou you can test before you send...
Sharon Boath
39:24
I do the same, Sharlene :-)
Tania Jones
39:28
Me too
Wendy Perry
41:17
I always do the spam and spell check then send test messages to myself and 1 or 2 team members so they can read it before it goes out. Checking it reads well and looks good.
Sharlene Lynch
41:34
I use the same name as the Subject... easier for me to remember
Evelyn Pollard
42:18
what if I do not have a general email address
Sharlene Lynch
42:28
yes trust
Sharlene Lynch
43:11
Yes I am the brand
Trevor Hayley
43:20
I just use my normal email address. I do make a point of thanking people when I receive a newsletter, and sometimes I get a thank you when I send out.
Tracey Tito
43:28
Im the brand as well
Wendy Perry
43:59
Subject line is key...
Wendy Perry
44:14
What can you come up with for a must open email?
Tania Jones
44:16
Do you use Emoji’s much?
Tania Jones
44:52
In the subject line
Tania Jones
47:21
Agreed I’m sick of seeing the same heading in emails
Bridget Hogg
48:01
ko
Bridget Hogg
51:16
is this how we add a photo?
Tracey Tito
53:59
can youthen save that as a template to be consistant
Trevor Hayley
55:03
You can replicate campaigns. Very powerful.
Rachael Runner
59:20
If I have a customer list from a previous role but they are my customers now, how do I articulate that list source in the copyright section?
Sharlene Lynch
59:36
Whats the best... day.. time
Michelle Charlton
01:00:10
are you allowed to send to two different groups (different because of how they came to you) to introduce the other side of your business that they may not be aware of?
Michelle Charlton
01:01:08
no - I have free and can
Sharlene Lynch
01:01:09
nup
Bridget Hogg
01:01:10
yes now
Bridget Hogg
01:01:14
it changed
Sharlene Lynch
01:01:16
mine is free and I schedule
John
01:01:34
Schedule only works on paid or legacy accounts
Sharlene Lynch
01:01:34
yes as an image
Bridget Hogg
01:01:58
Sharlene when did u last schedule?
Bridget Hogg
01:02:27
john what is a legacy account?
Trevor Hayley
01:02:33
I don't schedule. Prefer to stay away from automation. It is the way my industry is.
John
01:03:21
If you have an account from before MailChimp changed then Schedule still works, but if you create a new free account there is no Schedule
Bridget Hogg
01:04:00
weve had 1 from before but now it wont let usscedule
Sharlene Lynch
01:04:34
Yes John... that makes scene... I have a vey old account...
Wendy Perry
01:07:49
Any questions?
Bridget Hogg
01:08:00
does all that have to be manual?
Bridget Hogg
01:08:37
or is that an auto process (tagging the prospects)
John
01:08:48
Suggestions for low open rate - 20%
Trevor Hayley
01:08:54
Thank you to Ivan for you expertise, and the Wendy for you positivity.
Wendy Perry
01:11:03
Thanks for all your comments and what sort of open rate do you aim for?
Trevor Hayley
01:11:42
I get around 45%. Not too bad apparently. Emails go out monthly.
James Caldwell
01:11:42
John - in some businesses, 20% OR would be a figure to die for.
Sharon Boath
01:13:21
I've been very fortunate with 50-70% rate :-) I provide monthly emails
Sharlene Lynch
01:13:35
where do we go for additional resource?
Trevor Hayley
01:13:52
I have a sign up landing page on my website, in my email signature, and on Facebook page.
