Why must eSimply clear my email broadcast before it’s sent?

This is to differentiate legitimate email marketers from spammers as well as for security concerns. Protecting our clients is of utmost importance. Once your job is submitted for distribution, an eSimply administrator will review a proof of its content before launching the broadcast. Please note: eSimply.com reserves the right to refuse service to anyone attempting to promote questionable products or behavior that is considered spam or otherwise. If you’re complying with the law in sending legitimate email (translation: not spamming), you’re good to go. If you job is flagged for any technical reason(s), you will be notified and provided suggestions on how to remedy the issue. Our objective is to assist our clients in every way possible. But, if you’re sending unsolicited email (translation: spamming), we will refuse your business. Bottom line, if you’re a spammer, go elsewhere!

What types of files can be sent using eSimply?

⦁ .PDF (with hyperlinks) ⦁ .DOC/.DOCX (with hyperlinks) eSimply can convert these files, but we suggest you convert these to PDF files on your own computer if possible. ⦁ .TXT Basic text file if you are sending a simple message via our WYSIWYG editor

What if content has not yet been built for my email?

⦁ Canva.com (Free or Paid account) We suggest using a FREE template design service called Canva which allows you design newsletters. Canva allows saving these as Print-Ready PDF files which work great with eSimply.com The "Newsletters" templates Canva has available are typically 1-2 pages. You can insert additional pages. eSimply has a 32-page limit. If you select something other than one of the Canva "Newsletters" templates, such as a poster, we can send it out as an email broadcast, but you will need to use Canva to resize the width to 8.5" (216mm) before saving the PDF. eSimply works best with PDF files that are between 8.26"/A4 and 8.5"/LTR wide (209mm to 216mm). The Canva resizing function requires an inexpensive 'Canva Pro' subscription. Within the Canva interface you will find the button which allows hyper-linking elements within your selected design to external locations on the internet. Please be aware if you do not have a Canva Pro subscription, there may be a small fee to download some of the templates as they sometimes charge for licensed photography/clipart. You can replace these elements with your graphics if you rather not pay the small fee. Once you have downloaded the PDF you can return to eSimply.com to finish sending your email broadcast(s). https://www.canva.com/newsletters/templates/  https://www.canva.com/flyers/templates/ https://www.canva.com/letters/templates/ https://www.canva.com/posters/templates/ We engage in affiliate marketing whereby we receive funds through clicks to our affiliate program through this website or we receive funds through the sales of goods or services on or through this website.

Can I do any merging of text within the emails?

If you would like to personalize your emails, you may insert place holders into your HTML source, such as "{Dear}" and eSimply will prompt you to match these "merge fields" with available fields in your selected databases. You can also add these merge fields in the SUBJECT, FROM EMAIL ADDRESS, REPLY TO ADDRESS, and HOTSPOT LINKS. In addition, if you would like to have a default value when a particular record has no value for the merge, use the following syntax: "{Dear|Valued Customer}"

Email List Management

Email lists contain the email addresses of the recipients of a given email job. You may upload an email list in either Excel or CSV (comma separated value) format. Alternatively, you can create, edit, or delete individual entries in your email list. eSimply automatically removes problematic entries from your email lists.

Does eSimply and/or its parent company, MultiplePath Communications, share my personal information as well as the personal information of the recipients on my address lists with third-party vendors?

Absolutely not! MultiplePath Communications has been in business for more than 25 years by providing our customers with the highest standards in the industry. We do not sell or share your personal or business information with anyone, no exceptions.
