A critical step to getting started with SmartSender is setting up your Contact List. Whether you’re starting from scratch, or bring an existing audience into SmartSender, your list is where you’ll store and manage all your contact data.

In this article, you’ll learn how to create and organize your list.

Before you start

Here are some things to know before you begin this process.

  • SmartSender was intended to be used with a single list, so you shouldn’t need to create more than one.
  • If you absolutely need to maintain separate lists, you can repeat this process to create them. Lists are independent of one another, so contact and list data will be siloed on a per-list basis. Contacts that appear on multiple lists will also count multiple times in your overall subscriber count, which could increase your Monthly Plan.
  • If you’re using SmartSender’s bulk email service, make sure you’re familiar with our anti-spam practices and list requirements before you begin this process.
