Want to add a personal touch to your broadcasts and campaigns?

We've gotcha covered! You can now add first names to your email broadcasts and campaigns 🎉 

In this article:

Adding a first name to your emails

Step 1: Click on "Email" in the top navigation bar:

Step 2: Once you click "New Email" and select Broadcast or Campaign, in the body, click on + First Name.

The First Name field is a default (but not to worry; in cases where you prefer not to use names, you can remove them as needed by simply deleting the text).

Note: if no first name is present, the email will default to a friendlier "there", (as in, "Hey there"), but you can change that to "friend", "buddy", "partner 🤠", "my favorite customer" and so on...😉

You can also add the name field as many times as you'd like throughout the body by clicking the "+ First name" button:

...And that's all there is to it 😎 

Email failed to send?

Did you get a notification that your email failed to send? Don't worry, it's probably a simple fix!

Double check that your first name tag is valid. Things to check:

  • two curly brackets at the beginning

  • there should have a quote at the beginning and end of the word

  • two curly brackets at the end

  • *bonus: make sure there aren't any missing or extra spaces, there should be a single space between everything inside the curly brackets

When all is said and done, the tag should look something like this {{ first_name or 'there' }} 😎

If you see a mistake in your first name tag, feel free to try and send the email again! If you don't see anything wrong, please reach out!
