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!

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

        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?

        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.

        we've had a bit of a delay getting this launched, but our private version (I don't work for Zenfolio) should launch in the next week. i might put out a form here to gather interest and a tutorial. and if enough people are interested, i can possibly have something public in about 2-3 months after our own testing. you'd be able to customize automated emails in Mandrill if desired, or upload contacts to any Email Marketing service for newsletters.

        Bravo! Can not wait to see this app and start using it! Thank you! Please post a link here when it is available. Love the site! keep up the great work!

      • photoguy92849photoguy92849 commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Here's how our app is going to work shortly - every time a gallery is uploaded, the gallery link is pulled into our user database for use with Mailchimp and others. An automatic email will ask the client to either activate or delete their gallery. Upon activation, they could set their own gallery password for just their gallery. The app will track visitors, photo quantity & duration online and automatically delete gallery based on custom criteria. i.e. if they don't use their galleries, they'll get an automated email saying their gallery will expire in 30 days after which it'll automatically delete.

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

      • photoguy92849photoguy92849 commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Hey all - let me know if you're interested in this and if you'd pay for such an app. We recently hired a developer to enable exporting details of all groups (client name, email, group URL etc) to then be imported into the email marketing service of my choice (currently using GetResponse). This way, I could send customized mass emails with sale announcements along with a client's unique link. For example:

        Dear [Name],

        It's holiday time and we're having a huge sale... Check out your photos at [Link] and order away!

        The name and link will be loaded from a database which is updated every time a new group is uploaded to Zenfolio. Additionally clients will be able to create their own password their first time and modify or request deletion of their photos.

        do this now!!! please!! i don't want to have to use outside email sources like mailchimp etc. zenfolio you can do this. we need it!

      • mauiwindmauiwind commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Does it cost a lot to implement this feature? It looks like you've planned this for TWO YEARS (as of THIS date) here's the rub, either you're going to make this available or we need to move forward with other solutions... It's not very comforting to see that the company that is such a big partner with my business takes more than two years to implement a plan. Do you have a date?
