Make an eBid campaign that includes the initial email (step-by-step instructions)


Step 1 –┬áCopy the “Basic 5-day Campaign”

For the new campaign, we build off the “Basic 5-day Campaign”. We need to┬ámake a copy of the “Basic 5-day” so that we can customize it.

Go to SETTINGS –> MISC –> eBID CAMPAIGNS –> select “Basic 5-day Campaign” –> tap/click CUSTOMIZE and confirm you want to make a copy of the campaign

Step 2 – Rename the copy

Now we need to edit the copied campaign and give it a snazzy new name!

Select “Basic 5-day Campaign copy” –> tap/click EDIT –> and give the campaign a new name

Step 3 – Add the initial Proposal email to the campaign

We want to use the email quick text for the body of this email. The video shows you how we accessed that text, copied it, and pasted it into a new campaign email. To make things easier, you can copy and paste directly from here.

Tap/Click NEW ITEM –> fill in this information:

Topic = Initial email;

Send on Day = 1;

Subject = Your Proposal

Copy the email in the gray box below and paste it into the email body –> edit the email if you want –> tap/click DONE to save your work
