Many of you always tell me that meal planning and prepping is where you need the help when trying to prepare healthy meals for the work week.  This past Sunday afternoon all Sweet and Strong email subscribers received a FREE 7 Day Meal Plan where I did all the planning for you and organized 7 healthy meals for dinner each night.  You can only receive this through an email I designed using Campaign Monitor.  Within the email you’ll find a link to each recipe and some meal prep tips.  Each meal is quick and easy to cook as I know you all live busy lives during the work week.  And of course I allowed one night off in the kitchen for take out or dining out, hello #pizzanight.

Campaign Monitor Review

I used Campaign Monitor to import my email list and edited one of their email designs to create a custom email sent to you.  They have a variety of email templates to choose from, you can also design or upload your own.

Campaign Monitor Email Templates

It was easy to organize all the content and photos by using the drag and drop features.  I mostly added or edited blocks for text and images.  Other builder features include a spacer, divider, button, survey, and video.

For each block you can edit the color, size, style, and font.  I am definitly not a techy person, especially when it comes to coding and Campaign Monitor makes organizing a professional looking margeting email very user friendly.

Campaign Monitor Email Marketing

When my email was complete I was able to preview what it would look like on a desktop and moble device which I really liked.  And I could also send myself a test email to review all the content.

When the email was ready to send I was able to select everyone on my email list and schedule a time and date for the email to go out.  Once it was scheduled I didn’t have to worry about anything.  I loved the scheduling feature as you often want an email to be delivered when your subscribers are most likely to engage.

Here’s a little sneak peak at the FREE 7 Day Meal Plan email I sent out to subscribers.

7 Healthy Meal Plan Ideas

Within the email my followers can click the links to be taken to the recipes.  And at the bottom I was able to add link buttons to Sweet and Strong and add my social media channels.

After the email sent I can log into Campaign Monitor to view insights through full analytics.  I can see how many subscribers engaged with the email content.  I can view the number of times each link was clicked.  And if I had any followers unsubsribe.  Then for the future I can learn how to improve marketing strategies using one of their many free resources.

I highly suggest using Campaign Monitor to grow your audience, sell products, or promote business offers through professional looking email marketing campaigns.  Currently you can get started for FREE, then their plans start at $9/month for a Basic Plan with all the core features.  If you send frequent email campaigns they also offer two other plans, Unlimited for $29/month and for those who really want to grow their business the Premier plan for $149/month.  You can read about each plans special features here.  And start creating marketing emails for your blog or business today!

    I use MxMail for sending out my campaigns, but I think I will see what is up with CampaignMonitor.
