Broadcast Overview

In most online systems, if you want to email a group of people, you've got to get them on a list. Always a list. So then when someone buys something from you, those online systems make it so that you'll need to get them on a list also, or they won't be receiving your emails. And then if they opt for a refund, or cancel their subscription, those online systems make it so that you'll need to remember to get them off your list, or they'll keep getting the emails forever.

A broadcast can be sent to multiple groups of people at the same time. For example:
  • You can send it to three different lists at once
  • To multiple products
  • A combination of lists and products
  • Everyone on a list who is not also on a product. You choose this with the include/exclude buttons on the recipients screen.
  • And you can choose the date and time a broadcast should be sent in the future, or send it out immediately.
