How To Create An Email Broadcast In GrooveMail

Here we will discuss on how to create tags, segments and broadcasts in GrooveMail. 

Creating Tags

If you wish to create tags, then on the left panel of GrooveMail, go to “Tags & Segments” and click on “Tags.”

Before we get started, let’s have a look at how the tag works:

Naming Tags

For instance, you have:

  • One hundred people in your email list subscribed.
  • About 50 of those people subscribe to your free checklist. Make sure you tag them as the free checklist. 

  • And let’s say around 30 of those people subscribe to your newsletter, so in that case, you should tag them with the newsletter as well.

  • Lastly, 20 of those purchase your ebook, and you need to tag them with the purchase ebook. 

  • Finally, you can segment your email list with the help of tags and email, particularly to those people to whom you don’t have to create multiple email lists. 

Also, you have one more option to create one master email list and then apply tags to sort them later.

TIP:

First, create a Google Sheet and write down the names of your tags to keep track of the tag names that you’ll be using.

In this example, We can name this tag as “Free Anabolic Meal Plan.”

Every time a user submits their contact info in the opt-in form named “Free Anabolic Meal Plan,” then they will be:

  • Tagged in “Free Anabolic Meal Plan.”
  • Also, get added to the Health Website List as well. 

  • Now head back to tags, and on the top right corner of the page, click on a “New Tag.”

  • Copy the title from the spreadsheet and paste it under “Name,” and provide it with a similar description. 

  • Next, under the category, you can group your tags into categories. 

  • You can create a couple of titles for freebie email opt-ins and some classes for buyers. 

  • For example, you wish to make a category named “prospects.” 

  • To create a class, click on “Create New Category” and type the category’s name.

  • Finally, click the “+” button and then on “Create Tag.”

TIP: 

Users can create as many tags as they want to. But in our recommendation, we will suggest you keep one title per opt-in form.

Segment

  • Click on “New Segments” and then name it as you want.
  • Now click on “Create Segment.” 

Creating new segment

  • Under “Included” options, click on the drop-down arrow and then hit on “Hashtag.”
  • Now, click on the second select button, the tag that we have used here is under “Leads,” which will load a particular title on the next drop-down arrow.

  • Now, pick your tag and click on “Add.”

  • You don’t have to exclude anyone on a particular list or tag, but that option is also available here if you want to do so.

  • So to create a segment from a specific tag and then click on “Save & Exit.”

Creating a New Broadcast Email
