Our platform offers you a range of options on how to import your email lists. We really want to make sure that we have your various needs covered! One of the most commonly used methods of import is using an Excel file to upload your email list on our platform. It works great as long as you make sure to use .xls or .xlsx files of up to 40 MB size.
The process is very straightforward, just follow the steps below:
A. Find the Excel File import option
1. At the top of your Dashboard page, hover your mouse over the Audience tab located at the top of your Dashboard page to reveal the drop-down menu, and then click on the Email lists option.
2. Click on the name of the email list to which you want to add members.
3. On the vertical menu on the left, tap on the Perform bulk actions button.
