At Shared Contacts for Gmail®, we are absolutely delighted to showcase other products that you can plug-in to Gmail to increase productivity and usability even more. We particularly love these products when they are as initiative as Shared Contacts for Gmail®.
For this reason, we are eager to highlight Flashissue which is a plug-in that allows you to design and send bulk email from within your Gmail.
Flashissue allows you to concentrate on what you do well, but advertise it with professionalism. No need to go to an outside product and then import your contacts. You no longer need to train staff on a new interface. If an employee knows how to use Gmail, which almost everybody does these days, they’ll know how to use a Gmail newsletter product such as Flashissue. Flashissue is easy and intuitive, which in our opinion, exactly what a Gmail plug-in should be!
Simple ‘Drag and Drop’ Editor
Perhaps the key consideration for organisations without designers on staff is the ‘Drag and Drop’ feature. With Flashissue you don’t have to spend hours making your email look how you want it to look. You can add any image you want and resize accordingly. Adding text is as easy as typing a regular Gmail.
Flashissue also makes staying legal whilst doing email marketing or sending out a non-profit newsletter a lot easier. Many people naturally worry about keeping GDPR compliant. Whilst we can’t go into detail about how to keep GDPR compliant – giving people the option to remove themselves from your existing mailing list, then removing their information from your database entirely, will go a long way in helping your firm or organisation maintain GDPR compliance. You can add an unsubscribe link inside the content of your email, pretty much in the same way as you would add any link inside Flashissue.
How you can use Flashissue day-to-day
The real reason we like Flashissue so much is that it can help our customers send out really professional newsletters with ease, particularly those that are schools or Parent Teacher Associations (PTAs) who have money or time constraints. Flashissue is particularly good if you may have only a few dozens or low hundreds of email newsletters to send out. If this is the case, configuring and paying for some of the larger email marketing providers (such as MailChimp) doesn’t make a lot of sense. Just like Shared Contacts for Gmail®, Flashissue also provides a discount for educational institutions, feel free to look at their pricing page and reach out to them for a quote.
Flashissue also allows you to track the open rate of your email newsletter.
With one click you can access reports on who opened your Gmail newsletter and see what content they find interesting. This helps you measure what messages are working for you with your audience and lets you become more effective with your marketing.
