Email Marketing Campaigns and Templates

A new system for email marketing campaigns and a good template system for scheduling and sending emails to clients. From start to finish of an events life cycle integration from event cards, to signup coupons and emails letting the client know the event is ready to view. Then followup emails to the client reminding them to order their photos. This could all be customized depending on the role of the guest at the wedding and it is option for the client. The client can click a box saying "Please don't email me reminders" I think this would take Zenfolio to the next level and be a huge advantage to Photographers!

    Quick update: This feature is definitely still in our roadmap, and we are actively working out exactly how/when it will be implemented. Will update again when more info is available!

        This would be such a great additional so feature can't wait to see when it's rolled out

        If This isn't implemented by the time my account is to renew I won't renew my account. this feature shouldn't even be a premium feature it should be standard.

        Zenfolio, this popular suggestion is FOUR YEARS OLD. It's flagged as planned for nearly three years. How long can it possibly take? Do you have the resources to run your business to the satisfaction of your paying customers?

        Is the update that was just posted today just a measure to placate your client base who HUNGERS for this update? The lack of implementation of this feature is not just hurting OUR business: it's hurting yours. Think how much money you would make if you gave us the tools to increase our sales, and thus your commissions/cut.

        I've just spent the last hour editing the CSV upload from my Zenfolio visitor details into a useable MailChimp data set. Pain in the bum. Why isn't there an API link between the two platforms? The emailing from within Zenfolio is okay for client invitations, but follow-up marketing is just woeful.

        I've just included the MailChimp pop-up email sign up onto a load of my website pages, so that should do something. It's the only way to go, unless Zenfolio up their game or at least do some API integrations.

        This would defiantly be a great sales tool. The option to send emails with coupon codes before the anniversary would be great!
        There are a number of improvements to the existing email process that should also be changed in the process. For this to look professional, the mail needs to come from our own domain rather than noreply@zenfoliomail.com as suggested here http://zenfolio.uservoice.com/forums/75695-feature-suggestions/suggestions/1510021-send-email-from-my-domain
        Emails should be able to contain html and images. Ideally we could keep the same theme as the website with the logo, contact links, unsubscribe link, etc.
        We should be able to include variables such as GalleryURL, ClientName, CouponCode, EventDate, etc so we can use the same template for multiple clients.
        With the new mobile app invites, having a professional looking email template is even more essential.
        As this has been planned for so long, and update would be nice so we can decide whether to keep waiting or spend the time to implement our own solution.

        I agree with the comment below. It pains me to see you guys so close and not taking the next step. Are you reading these posts? Because, it doesn't seem like it.

        "Zenfolio, this popular suggestion is FOUR YEARS OLD. It's flagged as planned for nearly three years. How long can it possibly take? Do you have the resources to run your business to the satisfaction of your paying customers?"

        I would be happy with some sort of arrangement/integration with Constant Contact, which I currently use.

        Yes! Please add this! This is a win/win for Zenfolio and Photographers. We will sell more prints! To clarify what I envision, here's a typical wedding scenario:

        For each wedding, our brides will share the gallery link with their friends and family. I require users to enter their email before viewing a gallery. I would love to automatically send an email with a link to the gallery and something like a 15% Off Coupon to all emails associated with a gallery at the following times:
        *3 days after initially viewing gallery
        *10 days after initially viewing gallery
        *2 weeks before the couple's wedding anniversary
        *2 weeks before Christmas

        I too am attempting to find a work-around within Zenfolio so I can send a promotional email blast to contact list; having impossible time doing something as simple as including a single jpeg in the email.

      • JBeauvais PhotographyJBeauvais Photography commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Please, can we add a lot more dynamics to the email process. I would like to
        use my contact list to email clients but I can't even add a simple image
        within my signature. There is no ability to design great looking emails which
        is odd especially when you consider how dynamic everything else is at
        Zenfolio.

        Sounds great and the ability to customize the template for gallery invites...PLEASE - So simple, and such a huge advantage
