As the name suggests, the ClickFunnels mass mailer is a tool that allows you to send mass emails just by entering a few details about your email list. The tool is very easy to use and offers a lot of features to help you craft the perfect email blast.

Here’s how you can put this valuable tool to work for you.

Step 1: Configure Mass Mailer

The first thing you’ll need to do is to log in to your ClickFunnels account and go to your Control Panel. From there, click on the Tools button and then select the Mass Mailer option. You’ll see a form with the following details:

  • Email: The email address of your email list
  • Subject: The subject of your email
  • Message: The body of the email
  • Send with a Tempalte: Choose this option if you want the email to come with a design template (e.g., a design for a business card, banner, or envelope)
  • Cancel: If you’ve entered the details correctly, this button will be inactive

You can also configure the following details in your account:

  • From Name: The name you want displayed in the header of the email
  • Email Subject: The subject of the email
  • Reply To: The email address you want used when someone replies to your email
  • Automatically Close After : The number of days you want to automatically close your email account
  • Force Reply: Whether you want to force recipients to reply to your email or not
  • Send Bulk Email: Whether you want to send your email every day, every week, or every month

Step 2: Configure Email Template

The next step is to choose an email template. When you create a mass mailer, ClickFunnels will offer you several pre-designed templates you can use. Simply choose any one of them and edit it wisely.

You can change the following details about the template:

  • Subject: The subject of the email
  • From Name: The name you want displayed in the header of the email
  • Message: The body of the email
  • Cancel: If you’ve entered the details correctly, this button will be inactive

When you’re finished, click on the Preview button to see how the email will look. If everything looks good, publish your template and you’re ready to start sending emails.

Step 3: Create Email List

The last step is to create an email list. You can do this either by purchasing a list from a reputable company or by using a free service like Mailchimp and converting your Facebook or Instagram followers into an email list.

When you create a mass mailer using the Mailchimp integration, you’ll have the option of importing your email list from either source. If you choose to import from Facebook, you can copy and paste the following URL into your browser:

https://m.facebook.com/settings/ads/manage/optimal_performer/?tab=email_address

This will take you to the ‘optimal performer’ section of your Facebook page where you can find all your email addresses.

You can also do this on your Instagram account by following this same procedure, but instead, go to the ‘Your Instagram account’ section and then search for ’email addresses’.

After you’ve located your email addresses, you can paste the following URL into your browser to get started:

https://m.facebook.com/settings/ads/manage/optimal_performer/?tab=email_address

From there, you can start adding contacts one by one or use the drag and drop feature to add several contacts at once.

Once you’ve added all your contacts, click on the blue Verify Email Address button to verify that each one is active.

At this point, you can start using the mass mailer by clicking on the orange Start button.

How Does It Work?

After you’ve started using the mass mailer, you’ll see a pop-up window appear with a confirmation code. To confirm your email address, simply enter the code and click on the Confirm button. You’ll see a confirmation message and then an email will be routed to you from the @clickfunnels.com domain. Remember, this is an automated email and your email address will not be sold or given out to anyone.

More Details About Mass Mailer

This tool is one of the most valuable assets in your ClickFunnels arsenal because it allows you to send bulk emails without having an inbound marketing expert design them for you. This way you can have something done quickly and accurately without the risk of errors.

As you might imagine, there are a few key points to keep in mind if you want to get the most from this tool.

  • Use a reputable service for your email list
  • Design the emails yourself
  • Use a free service to grow your email list rather than buying an already established list
  • Use the template wisely – the more you know, the easier it will be to design an effective email
  • Check your email blast for spelling errors before you send it

Let’s take a closer look at each point.

1. Use a Reputable Source for your Email List

It goes without saying that you need to use a reputable source for your email list. However, you might not realize that the list you get from a free service like Mailchimp is not always the best choice. For example, if you’ve signed up with Mailchimp through a referral link, you might want to consider removing that link because the company can access special account details. (More on this later.)

You also need to keep in mind that any email list you create with Mailchimp will be considered commercial use and you’ll have to pay the company a certain amount each month regardless of whether you use their services or not. This means you’ll need to have a paying customer or subscriber in order to keep your list.

On the other hand, if you’ve purchased a list from a third party company or gathered email addresses from a reputable source like a blog or magazine, you’ll have no trouble using them with the mass mailer.

2. Design the Email Blast Yourself (rather than using a pre-built template)

The beauty of the mass mailer is that it takes all the design work out of the equation and allows you to just choose a template and start blasting away. Designing your own email blast is a great way to ensure that it is optimally effective rather than relying on a template that was probably designed by someone with less experience than you.

When designing your email blast, you have several options:

  • Subject: The subject of your email
  • From Name : The name you want displayed in the header of the email
  • Message: The body of the email
  • Cancel: If you’ve entered the details correctly, this button will be inactive

Once you’ve drafted the email, you can preview it in your browser or send it off to a few friends to get feedback before you publish it.

3. Use a Free Service to Grow Your Email List (rather than buying an already established list)

If you’ve been following along so far, you might be wondering why I recommend using a free service to grow your email list rather than buying an already established list. Well, there are several excellent reasons for this.
