Setting Up Campaign
Once your list and forms are set, you are ready to go for creating an email campaign. You can run email campaigns to send your marketing messages to the subscribers opted for your marketing messages. In FluentCRM, an email campaign is a bulk email marketing campaign that sent to many contacts at once instantly or in a scheduled time defined by you. This is as easy as add a template, add the content, design the template, select your audience group, and then send it off to your subscribers.
