Email Marketing

Email customizing training, custom signature, images etc...

For email marketing purposes you are probably better off to make use of a service like Getresponse. I use a combination of Getresponse and gmail in my business.

I use Getresponse to capture emails, to send out scheduled emails automatically to my subscriber list and bulk email if I want to send out a specific email right now to my email list.

Gmail I use when customers email me to e.g. ask a question. If I then just have the one person to reply to I will use gmail which I connected to my domain and I also have a signature there with business logo, business email, website etc. in my signature.

I hope this helps. For more clarity, feel free to get in touch.

Kind regards

Thank you for this info. I will look into Getresponse. I don't use my email for lists or capturing subscribers. I have 600+ clients in my tax business and don't like the so called "secure downloading services". I have been using Gmail for years with no issues but now it seems that identity theft is on steroids. So I am looking for more secure ways to keep my client's info more secure.

You are most welcome and understood. Wishing you the very best of success with your email solution :)

Hi - unfortunately, the email system here is very basic; it is not possible to customise it, add signatures, etc.

Ok thank you

You can do a forward and then use the capabilities of Gmail or Outlook if you like.

Your Gmail and Outlook can also be secure, with double authentications. You can benefit from filtering spam and other features.

Ok thanks

No worries. i hope you get it figured out.

Hello Kyle,
I wanted to ask you about something that hopefully you can help with that may be mutually beneficial for all of us. I make my living with my accounting/tax prac

Hey Lou,

Your question got posted to all members instead of to Kyle. Rather than let your question go unanswered, I thought I should let you know.

Always check out any website asking you to write content for them. Make sure they are legitimate and that they site ranks well.

You are free to offer your affiliate links to WA anywhere you are allowed to share them.

Hope this helps you.

Thanks for the reply, that was so long ago, I forgot the question, lol. The article was published earlier this month and I haven't put it on my website yet, still figuring that out. The site that published it has a high rank and authority in addition to tons of traffic so it's legit. I just needed tips on how to post it on my site & social media but I don't make my money from my sites so I can wait until I learn how to do that. Thanks for taking the time to let me know, I thought I sent it as a PM to Kyle but I can't even figure that out either, lol. Have a great day!

Glad this has all worked out for you Lou. In the end, that's all that really matters. I have found that when I learn things the hard way, I tend to NEVER forget what I learned. You might gain the same sort of advantage, leastwise, I hope so. Have a great day. :-))

There is a line, "Sorry, no post matched your criteria", that just appeared underneath the three images towards the bottom of the page, can't remove it, please help. looraccoun

go to your template and check in style.css file then look for that line you dont want and delete the paragraph and the list

Not sure how to get there, templates?

It's not appearing from my end Luis, did you fix it ?
Joseph

Jozeph, It appears on my PC , really weird. But I am happy that you can't see it, it is just below the three pictured girls.

Yes, that's where i looked.
Have you tried signing in and out again?

I see it now, yes it does show up :(

Btw, I saw the blog by Leo regarding your concern for him, much respect for you my friend, you are the kind of person I like to surround myself around.

I've tried everything including punching it but it's just there to piss me off.

Thanks Luis, I'm sure we'll get to know each other.
I'm looking into you'r problem now :)

Thanks for the effort, I'm going to hit the sack before I stay up all morning, Talk to you soon and thanks again.

Good night my Friend :)
