First, Some Important "Admin" Stuff
To maximize your email delivery and make sure your messages hit the inbox, there are a couple important steps your BuzzBuilder Admin will need to take. PS: If you’re the only user in BuzzBuilder, by default you’re the admin.
Step 1: Set up a separate domain and email address to send emails from. Learn why
Step 2: Add “email authentication” to your domain called SPF, DKIM and DMARC. Learn How.
Now Let's GET STARTED!
Getting started with BuzzBuilder is easy and we created a step by step guide to help you launch your first campaign as quickly as possible. Below are 4 steps, each with a training video that is available on-demand.
Connect an Email Account
Before you can begin sending campaigns, you’ll need to connect either an Outlook Exchange, or Outlook 365 account. We don’t recommend using gmail or g-suite because they often limit you to only sending only 50 emails per day. We’ve created a short, 3-minute video to show you how, and it will also give you a tour of the general navigation. NOTE: We suggest you send from a separate email address AND a different domain instead of using your primarily email account for sending marketing emails. Click here to learn why.
NOTE: If your company hosts it’s own On-Premise Outlook Exchange server, your IT department will need to set up something called an “SMTP Relay”. Click Here for a tutorial you can share with them. NOTE: This can be a complex process and it’s only suggested if you have more than 5 users. If you have less than 5 users, a simpler alternative is to purchase a separate email address via an email hosting service like GoDaddy. Here’s how.
IMPORTANT UPDATE: Email Sending Limits & Improving Email Delivery
Email delivery can be a constant challenge, and it’s important to understand how many emails you can send before you’ll get blocked by spam filters. By default, each email address is limited to sending a maximum of 200 emails per day, but you’re able to increase this via the Settings to 400 per day if you don’t mind the added risk of getting blocked. GMAIL/G-SUITE USERS: Gmail will often limit you to sending only 50 emails per day, and Gsuite can limit you to less than 100 for the first few months. Even if BuzzBuilder “sends” 200 emails via gmail’s servers, they might only deliver the first 50 and then give you an error that you’ve exceeded their daily limit. Therefore, we suggest using Outlook 365 instead of gmail or gsuite. You can purchase an Outlook account via a hosting company such as GoDaddy for as little as $1.99 per month.
