Creating a Newsletter Email in Empower
One powerful tool in Empower is the ability to create and send an email Newsletter to your membership. The recipients can be automatically filtered initially or with each Issue of the newsletter, making the communication possibilities endless!
Newsletters are designed to be a series of recurring messages that utilize the same recipient list (or set of parameters) or the same template design. Here are a few examples of how you could utilize the Newsletter feature:
- Pastor’s Monday morning update (sent to all Active Members, uses the same template each week)
- A Happy Birthday email (parameters set to Birthday is Today, a templated message using Merge Fields to add personal information)
- Kid’s Ministry Update (Sent to those Households who are a part of children’s Activities)
Newsletters can also be published to a fixed URL that can be publicized outside of email messages.
Let’s walk through the creation of a Newsletter. Keep in mind that we will not hit every customization option in this article. For more tips and tricks for design and format, be sure to view our blog articles.
