Newsletter Scheduler

Connecting with your customers is a great way to create loyalty and build lasting relationships, and consistent newsletters help you do just that. Newsletters keep your customers and subscribers updated on everything you've got going on, like what podcasts you're featured on, interviews you're doing, new products you have, new blog posts, programs and courses you're launching, and so much more. 

But we know you're busy, and it's not easy to write a newsletter every single week. That's why the newsletter section in Simplero helps make it simple. With Simplero's newsletter scheduler, you can set up the foundation for your newsletter that covers your Newsletter name, Recipients, Email Settings, and the Schedule

Once you set up your schedule, you'll be able to see all the drafts, queued, and delivered newsletters in one place. From the same screen, you can write as many newsletters as you want in advance, easily find them, and schedule them to be delivered at the perfect time. 

This process gives you a chance to get ahead of the game, and once you schedule your newsletter, it's set it and forget it! You can also create a reminder so that you get notified when it's time to write or send another newsletter, so you never miss a chance to connect with your customers. 

Creating a Newsletter

The first step to using the newsletter section is to set up the basic framework for your newsletter. This is where you set up your newsletter name, who it goes out to, where it's sent, how often it's delivered, and when you want to be reminded about writing it. 

Here's the step by step: 

  1. Select Broadcasts from your Simplero Dashboard.
  2. Select the Newsletters tab.
  3. Create a Newsletter by clicking the blue Create a newsletter schedule button in the upper right corner.

  4. Enter the information for your New Newsletter Schedule.


  5. Give your newsletter schedule a Name.
  6. Set your schedule (either weekly, biweekly, or monthly) and choose your start date.
  7. Choose the List (or lists) the newsletter will go out to.
  8. Set your Email settings such as Subject line, Sender name and email, and Reply to email.
  9. Set up your Reminder schedule.
  10. Click the Create newsletter schedule button when you're done.

Once you've set up your newsletter, you're ready to write!

  1. Go to the Newsletters tab.
  2. Click on the Newsletter Name you've just created.
  3. You'll be directed to the email Queued for that newsletter.
  4. Click the Add a newsletter button.

  8. Complete your email and click the Next button.
  9. You'll be taken to the Broadcast overview screen.  Once you've completed all edits, click the blue Queue newsletter button.
  10. Not ready to schedule your newsletter? Have more edits to make? That's ok! Don't hit that blue Queue newsletter button and keep your newsletter as an easy to find draft. Just head back to that specific newsletter schedule when you're ready to publish. This allows you to write as many newsletters as you want ahead of time, saving you time in the long run and helping you put out better content.
