ShoutOut Best Practices

Tutorial

Find out here how you can improve your email delivery rates, so more people see your ShoutOuts.

Who Can I Send Wix ShoutOut Newsletters To?

If you're not sure whether you have someone's permission to send them a ShoutOut, first email them from your regular email account and ask if they're happy to receive your newsletters and updates.

To get more people on your ShoutOut contact list, add the Get Subscribers app to your site.

  • Anyone whose email address you got from someone else.
  • Anyone whose email address you copied from the internet.
  • Anyone whose email address you got from social media (e.g., Facebook).
  • Anyone who asked to unsubscribe from your emails, or told you not to contact them.
