It is that time of the year again. Time to email friends, business contacts and family… to say thank you for the year, to invite them to parties… maybe even market your special holiday offers.
In this post, we show you how you can use it to create one holiday email, and then personalized copies of the same email to as many people as you want.
Your mailing list can be in Outlook… or Excel… or even Salesforce. See links at the end of the post on how to use Excel.
To get you started, we have even created 5 holiday themed email templates that you can download and use today.
If you haven’t done so already, you will need to download and install EmailMerge for Outlook in order to use these templates.
Download and installing the templates
Once you have Email Merge installed…
Click here to download the Outlook Holiday Templates. Save the file to your desktop or other convenient location on your computer (This will be a zip file. You do NOT need to unzip it).
Start Outlook and go to your Inbox.
Under Email Merge on the ribbon, click the little arrow and then click Template Manager (to display Email Merge’s built-in template manager)
Select and import the zip file that was downloaded in one of the earlier steps by clicking the Import button.
Click OK. The 5 templates will be imported into your Email Merge for Outlook template list into a category named Christmas Templates.
Click Close to close the Template Manager
Sending Personalized Emails from Outlook using the Templates
Click the Email Merge button on the Outlook Ribbon.
Select the appropriate template (Christmas Template 1 to 5) from the list on the first step of the Wizard and click Next.
Follow the rest of the steps in the Wizard.
The Email Merge for Outlook software can send out emails using contacts stored in Outlook, Excel and many other sources.
Happy Holidays from the team at Standss
We hope that this year has been good for you and we wish you and all our customers and readers a Very Merry Christmas.
And remember… it’s still not too late to send out your Holiday emails and invites.
