Import your Contacts to your Emailbrain account more easily

At EmailBrain, we want to make your experience with  Email Marketing  as easy as possible. And that is why we have added a new feature that allows you to add your Excel contacts simply by dragging and dropping and likewise the loading rate and import time is much faster.

Please log-in your account & go to Contacts> import and you will see this new import feature.



Import your contacts directly from their online email accounts

We now offer the feature to import your contacts from your online email account such as Gmail, Yahoo, AOL, Lycos and many more.


    To import these contacts remain in your account (advanced modee) and do the following: 1. Mailing lists 2. Add / import 3. Then select "Import from an email account" 4. Select the mailing list where you want to add the emails. 5. Enter your email and password 6. Click to import

The emails should already be in the preview completely imported and you should get a notice confirming the import. That is how easy it is! But aren’t the emails that I am importing opt-in?

As you know, in email marketing, all your contacts should be opt-in, so make sure that the emails you are importing, the owners have authorized  you to send them information.  Even if they are your close friends, relatives or colleagues always make sure that if you want to receive your newsletters they give you permission.

I recommend that you send a small email from your personal email, notifying them that you would like to send them your newsletter, and that if they agree please respond with a simple yes. How easy it is!
