Send out a newsletter with Email Campaigns.


  • Mobile Marketing Cloud


Send your first newsletter

Email Campaigns is a tool within Mobile Marketing Cloud that is used to build and send email in bulk to many contacts at once. Within Email Campaigns you can create 2 kind of emails: ‘’newsletters’’ and ‘’triggered’’. Newsletters are just regular emails and triggered are emails that are used for marketing automation workflows within the Customer Data Platform (CDP). Email Campaigns lets you easily add recipients, choose your setting and design your emails.

Before you start

Here are some things to know before you begin sending your first emails.

- To send an email, make sure you have the list of people you want to sent to in Address book. This can be done syncing a segment from the Customer Data platform. If you don’t have contacts in your Mobile Marketing Cloud it will be not possible to send your email campaign.

- Be sure to verify your own domain before you send your first email.
