How to set up bulk emails
Bulk emailing is the process of sending large quantities of emails at once. This is made possible with the help of email service providers like MailerLite, Mailchimp, ConvertKit etc.
To set up bulk emails on onlinecoursehost.com, kindly login to your account => click Admin => Bulk Emails
Step 1: Verify your sending email address
Your sending email address is the one that your students would get the emails from. I would recommend that you make use of your admin email.
An email would be sent to the provided email address. After verifying your email address, go back to your account and click, "I verified my email."
Step 2: Create a new email
After verifying your email address, you can then create your first bulk email, by clicking the Create New Email button on that same page.
=> Recipients: Confirm if you want to send the emails to every student enrolled for all your courses. If yes, leave the box empty.
You can also exclude the students signed up for a particular course if the email to be sent is peculiar to some courses.
To do this, click the search all eligible courses button and select the courses that are eligible for the email.
=> Email leads via newsletter: If you want to include all email leads, collected via the newsletter popup and other forms, tick the box assigned to it.
=> Subject of the email: Include the subject of your email.
=> Body of the email: Type in the body of your email
Step 3: Send your email
Scroll down the body of your email and send your email.
The Send Preview Email button would send the email to the sending email address so that you can see how this would appear to your students and make necessary corrections if need be.
The Send Email button would send these emails to the recipients.
In these simple steps, you are ready to start sending bulk emails and newsletters to your students.
