And here's the best part: no matter which email type you choose to send, all email layouts can be fully customized with your paper banner, subject line, email alias and a personal message or call to action.
Get started today! From your Paper Settings Dashboard, click Newsletter Service.
Click Newsletter layout to choose and edit a layout.
The three types of newsletters to choose from:
- Simple notification: sends the featured article.
- Headlines only: sends all articles in headlines section.
- Full newsletter: sends all articles on the front page of your paper.
Under Newsletter Options you can:
* Brand your newsletter by including your paper's top banner
* Hide your title or subtitle (used if your banner already includes your title)
* Add your own call to action or personalized message
* Include a text email alias. Emails are sent from firstname.lastname@example.org (if using paper.li to send your emails) but adding a text email alias will show your name in the subscriber's inbox.
* Customize the subject line
* Preview before sending
Decide how you will send your emails. You can either:
- Send your newsletters using the paper.li email service. With this option, emails are sent from "email@example.com" but can be customized with a text alias that shows in the subscriber's inbox. We are required by law to include in the footer a statement "Email powered by Paper.li".
- Send your newsletters using our Mailchimp integration *
- Send your emails using any other third party service by exporting the HTML. *
* If you would prefer to add your own email address to replace "firstname.lastname@example.org" and remove the footer "Email powered by paper.li", you may prefer to send your newsletters via Mailchimp or another third party service. These two options are not automatic however. See links above for more details.
Example of the full newsletter option, with a personalized message:
Don't forget! As the publisher of a Pro paper, you have the option to send out your email notifications automatically with each new edition -or- you can enable manual promotion which allows you to control when you promote your paper to your subscribers and to your activated social media channels.
