This year we've made it even easier to personalize your holiday eCards AND save time. Now you can automatically add your recipient's first name, full name and company name anywhere in your email message and in your subject line too!
In today's blog, I'll show you how to easily create and send a holiday eCard that's personalized to each contact on your holiday email list.
In my example, I will create a Thanksgiving holiday eCard but this technique can easily be used to create Season's Greetings, birthday and anniversary eCards too.
Select a holiday card and click the checkmark to start editing.
The 'Autofill Name' feature uses the information from your address book. You can also type alternate text for contacts not in your address book.
I selected to insert the first name into the body of my email:
You can insert First Name, First & Last Name and Company Name as often as you need to in your email message.
To further engage my audience, I added a signature with a photo and social media links to encourage interaction. This is what my final holiday eCard looks like without the animation.
To see this Thanksgiving eCard's animation and other new holiday eCard designs - check out our blog: New Thanksgiving & Season's Greeting eCards for 2021.
You can also auto-insert a contact's name and company in your email's subject line & preheader using the 'autofill name' option on the Send Email screen.
In the example below, I am inserting the person's first and last name in the subject line and just their first name in the preheader. I am also using 'ALT' text that will say "Happy Thanksgiving from Margaret" to anyone NOT in my address book.
First Name: |*First_Name*|
First & Last Name: |*First_and_Last_Name*|
Company Name: |*Company_Name*|
