What is a newsletter registration widget?
The newsletter widget is little more than a simple box that collects email addresses and stores them in your email list.  It's a VERY good thing to have on your site.  More often than not, you want to place a text widget somewhere near it, in order to describe why someone might want to subscribe to your newsletter.

Send an email, or newsletter, to visitors who have registered for your website!
If you set up a mailing list on your website, you can easily send everyone who registers an email, or a newsletter.To do this, simply select one of the email templates we have created for you, and type in whatever you would like to say. Note: It is important that before you send the email to all of the visitors to your website that you send yourself a test mailing. To send to yourself, just select the button "Send ONLY to myself" below.

Why do I need to give my newsletter a name?
The name you give your newsletter is VERY important. This is the name that will be used as the subject line when you send out your newsletter. Therefore, we recommend you use names that are highly descriptive, such as:
  • Acme Toy Company: Christmas Specials
  • August Employee Newsletter
  • Acme Software Company Product FAQ
How do I customize my newsletter?
On the left side below you see a snapshot showing the newsletter template you have selected. On the right is a list of the different sections of the newsletter that you can personalize to match your needs. The best way to get started is to Preview the newsletter so you see what it looks like. Then, select any of the sections, and edit the content. Then Preview again to see the result of your updates.

Why doesn't the picture change as I edit?
The picture on the left is just the thumbnail for the template you selected. The only way you can see the results of your changes is to use the Preview button.

What do the send buttons do?
You can send the newsletter, either to yourself, or to everyone who has registered on your site. We always suggest sending to yourself first, just to verify that it looks as you want.
