Creating a Mailing List

Would you like to organize your email subscribers?

SendLayer lets you create mailing lists to segment your subscribers and make sure everyone receives the messages they want to see.

In this tutorial, we’ll show you how to set up mailing lists in SendLayer.

Before getting started, be sure to:

What Are Mailing Lists?

In SendLayer, mailing lists are groups of email addresses that all have a single To Address you can use to send messages to all the recipients at the same time.

For example, if you created a mailing list for your sales team, you could just send an email to [email protected] to email everyone on the list simultaneously.

There are many use cases for mailing lists, including marketing campaigns, internal communication within your business, and more.
