Personalising your Simplelists emails is quick and easy and including a personalised footer makes your emails look professional. You can include a logo, links to your website, a phone number and more. A personalised footer also saves you time and gives your emails consistency.
To add a personalised footer, simply log in and go to 'List settings' in the left hand menu. Then, select the 'Email customisation' tab on the main screen.
Scroll down to the 'Message footer' box and then type your email signature into it.
To include a link to allow your recipients to unsubscibe from your emails, add a '$' sign follwed by the word 'UNSUBSCRIBE', being sure to use capital letters. So, your example signature might look something like this:
Unsubscribe from this list here: $UNSUBSCRIBEWhen a list member then receives an email from you, they will see your signature and a clickable 'unsubscribe' link at the bottom of the email.
Style your footer
You also have the option to style your footer using HTML. You can do this in the next box down on the 'Email customisation' page, called 'HMTL footer message' (optional). You can include CSS to add colour, preferred fonts and other styles that match your website and/or brand. Make sure that you use inline styles as these are recognised by email clients such as Gmail and Hotmail. You can also include links to your website and/or other important pages. Simply copy and paste your HTML into the box.
