3 Ways Flashissue allows you to send mass email with Gmail

Sending mass email with Gmail can be tough. Flashissue provides a way to ensure you can still send mass email with Gmail and avoid Gmail’s bulk sending limits.

Google imposes a maximum sending limit on emails of 500/day for regular @gmail users and 2,000 emails per day for Google apps users (this includes businesses and edu). In addition, there is a limit of 99 emails that can be sent in single mailing, which means if you try and send an email to 150 recipients using the To, CC or BCC fields your account will be flagged and you will not be able to send new messages (you can still access your account and receive incoming email).

New Feature (Beta) – Share an email template with your team

We’re testing a new feature that allows you to share one of your email’s as a template with the rest of your team.

The feature is not totally baked – it’s fully functional but not very polished. We want to get it in your hands for some feedback, so let us know what you think.

How it works

The feature lets you share an email you have created in your Flashissue account with others in your team so they can use it as a template of their own. Once shared, they are  free to edit the email as their own – it will leave the original email in your account unchanged.

Try the example from the video (click the link): 
http://app.flashissue.com/newsletters/company-template-2/share

Note: this is NOT a feature that lets you “collaborate” on an email with others.; it allows you  to share an email as a copy with others.

Step #1: View Email

Go to your Reports tab and hover your mouse over an email you would like to share with your team. Click the “View Email” button and you will be taken to the web view of the email.

Step #2: Create link

Now the email has opened in your browser create the link  to share with your team.

Add the following text –  /share – to the end of the page URL so that:

The original link:

Becomes:
