Turning Publisher Documents into E-mail Flyer Ads

by Ryan Mayhew in Email Marketing

eCampaignPro is built to mesh with your workflow, which means supporting many different kinds of documents you already use, and converting them into successful e-mail campaigns. 

 

In this post, we'll cover how to easily convert the Microsoft Publisher images you've already made into flyers for use in e-mail campaigns. 

First, open Microsoft Publisher to the file you would like to use. Go to "File" in the top left, then select "Save As" in the drop down menu.

In this new window, click on the drop down menu next to "Save as Type", and select "JPEG File Interchange Format".

 

Just below that, click on the button labeled "Change". A window will appear in the top left of your screen. Select "Web (96 dpi)", and click OK.

Congratulations, you just converted your flyer for use in online campaigns!

Now, in order to use it, we need to go back to our eCampaignPro dashboard. Once there, click on the orange "Upload Images" button in your Quick Shortcuts section.

Next, click on the red "Add new Image" button in the top right. In this new window, select "Upload Custom Flyer", and then click "Next Step". If your Publisher document is something else, such as a logo or a header image, select that option instead, then click "Next Step".

On this next page, click the "Add More Files" button, and select the Publisher documents you would like to upload from your computer. You can also drag the files you wish to upload from a folder into your browser, and into the area marked "Drop Files Here...". Once the files are selected, click the button marked "Upload".

Now your images are ready to be seamlessly integrated into your e-mail campaigns! 

For a complete step-by-step overview, you can view our informative video outlining this process:

How to Request Lists of Agents for Your E-Mail Campaigns in eCampaignPro

by Ryan Mayhew in Email Marketing | Mobile Email

Access to a large and receptive audience is one of the most important tools you can have, and eCampaignPro gives you the ability to draw from a proprietary list of hundreds of thousands of agents across the country. You can easily narrow down these agents by region and request a list from our database for use in your e-mail campaigns. 

 

To request agents, go the Dashboard of your eCampaignPro account. Then, click on the blue “Request Agents” button in the “Quick Shortcuts” button, just below the “Campaigns Ready for Follow up” section. 

Once on the requesting agents screen, you can narrow down your search by city, county, zip code, or state. 

Please note that if you are requesting the list of agents from an entire state, we ask that you contact us directly so that we can better process your request.  

For this example, we will be requesting a list of agents from a specific city. Start by clicking the “City” button. 

It will first ask you what state the city you’re searching for is in. After typing in the first few letters, the system will offer you a state, as well as the number of agents in that region. Click on the state you want to continue. 

You will then be asked for a city. Begin typing in the name of the city you want, and the search bar should narrow it down to the list of cities you are searching for. Click the city you would like to request agents from, and it will tell you how many agents we have in our database for that area.  

Then click the blue “Add to Queue” button next to the search bar to add that region to your List Request Queue.

You can repeat this process multiple times in order to get multiple lists and reach out to a broader audience. If you accidentally add a region to your List Request Queue, you can easily remove it by clicking the gray “X” to the left of the region’s name.  

Once the regions are in your List Request Queue, they will begin processing immediately, and you do not need to click anything else. The processing takes less than 24 hours, and then you will be given access to the lists of agents from the areas you requested for your e-mail campaigns. 

If you would like to request agents from certain ZIP codes instead of cities, click on the “Zip” button between the “County” and “State” buttons above the search bar. If you are entering multiple ZIP codes, before to hit Enter after each one, so that there is only one ZIP code per line.  

Then click the “Add to Queue” button below the text box to add those regions to your List Request Queue. 

If you are interested in requesting the list of agents from an entire state, click on the “State” button next to the “Zip” button above the search bar. You will be given our phone number and e-mail address, so that we can assist you in processing this request.
