FeedOtter has several helpful features that allow you to test and collaborate on your email newsletter creation process.
An easy and quick way to test that your new email newsletter looks the way you want is to send yourself a quick proof.
Click on the TEST TUBE icon in the upper-right. A popup appears asking for your email address. Click OK to send the proof.
Note: You can include up to 3 email addresses on a proof. Comma separated.
It is important to note that THIS proof email is sent from the FeedOtter application to you. Therefore marketing automation, and ESP features, tokens, or unsubscribe links will not work or render. This proof is intended for testing the look and structural success of the email.
Helpful Tip: Use the proof feature to send your new email to Litmus or Email on Acid to confirm your email newsletter looks and renders great.
We have made it easy to share your new email's look with other team members. Click on the moving box icon. A new browser tab will appear showing a landing page where your email can be viewed. Copy this URL from your browser or click on the "Copy to Clipboard" link and chat this link to team members for email feedback and approval.
When you are happy with the content and display of your email you can click the green Publish button.
What happens next will depend on the integration you setup in your newsletter defaults. Here is a breakdown of how the integration targets handle published curated emails.
Select a parent Marketo folder or program. FeedOtter will create an Email Program and Email ready to send from Marketo.
Define a Pardot campaign, lists, and suppression lists. Then select a date and time. Your email will become scheduled in Pardot and appear on your Pardot marketing calendar and in Schedule Emails.
Select your email groups, header, footer, and segments. Select a date/time. FeedOtter will create a new Simple Email object that is scheduled to send a new Email at your specified time.
Select a folder, lists, segments and a send date/time. FeedOtter will create a new email in MailChimp scheduled to send at the time you specify.
When you click publish your email will populate in Hubspot > Marketing > Design Manager. To send in HubSpot, create a new Marketing > Email > Regular and view your Custom templates. Your email will be available to select for sending.
If you don't use one of the ESP or marketing automation tools mentioned above or want to perform additional testing you can always grab/download the raw HTML of the email.
That's it! You are now ready to send emails using the curated email newsletter feature.
