Keep all your best content in one place with our new Smart Pages.

These pages are the evolution of Landing Pages — but with some HUGE new features:

  1. Show off your YouTube videos, newsletters, blog posts, podcasts, and Tweets in one place.
  2. Make it easy for your subscribers to not miss anything you create.

These new Smart Pages are your central hub for all your content. Share it with everyone.

To set up your Smart Page content hub, just add your feeds to any existing or new Smart Page. Then, click “Enable Feed”. Voilà! All your best content will be shown on your Smart Page.

What about making it easier to send an email with your best content?

Smart Campaigns make this possible:

  1. Weekly Newsletter. Automatically-drafted email with your best content every Sunday — including your YouTube videos, blog posts, podcast episodes, and social media posts.
  2. Content Updates. Automatically-drafted email with your new content (aka auto-RSS).

#3 – Improved Subscriber Referrals 📩

This month, we made Subscriber Referrals better than EVER:

  • Improved Subscriber Referrals Editor so it’s easier for you to set up.
  • “Referral Hub” for subscribers to see how many referrals they have, easily share your newsletter with your friends, check out prizes, and more.
  • Cleaned-up Subscriber Referrals Footer to make your emails look more polished.

Other notable updates:

  • Title of email always matches the subject line (even on clone).
  • HTML editor added to Automation emails for Empire Add-On customers.
  • Automation emails not sent until after a subscriber confirms (when double opt-in is enabled).
  • Branding completely disabled on all Smart Pages for Empire Add-On customers.
  • When a customer is Optimized, the reason for the Optimization is shown in the tooltips.
  • HTTP and www stripped out of domain validation to make validating your domain easier.

Or, you can add the tag on special emails that you want everyone to see on your Email Blog.

Your sender reputation and deliverability matter if you want your emails to land in the inbox. We’ve not only got deliverability covered for you but also your sender reputation.
