  • Wix ShoutOut Best Practices

    Prior to selecting your newsletter recipients, consider that there are laws and guidelines concerning email marketing. 

    Who can you send a Wix ShoutOut email to?

    You may only send ShoutOut emails to people or entities that have given you their explicit written (offline) or electronic (online) permission to receive emails. We strongly recommend that you only send ShoutOut emails to contacts who you’ve interacted with in the past year. If you are unsure as to whether you’ve been in contact with them in this time frame, then ask for their permission again.

    Who can’t you send a Wix ShoutOut email to?

    • A purchased/rented list from any source or any other list you obtained from a third party.

    • An email address you scraped, or copied from the internet.

    • Someone that did not explicitly agree to receive emails from you, as indicated above.

    • Someone who asked to unsubscribe or otherwise objected to your use of its email address.

    • Any email address collected through social media (such as Facebook), where the contact has not explicitly requested to receive such mail.

     

    If you do not follow the above guidelines, you will most likely get blacklisted. Your emails will be marked as SPAM and may not reach your targeted audience.

  • Managing Newsletters from the Wix ShoutOut Dashboard

    To view and manage your Wix ShoutOut newsletters:

    From the Wix ShoutOut window, click the dashboard icon on the right to open your Wix ShoutOut Dashboard.

    You will then see all the newsletters you created and sent:

    From the Wix ShoutOut Dashboard you can do the following:

       -  View your Wix ShoutOut newsletter by clicking on the newsletter title
       -  View the amount of times your newsletter was viewed  
         
       -  View the amount of recipients for each newsletter  
         
       -  View the amount of recipients that clicked to open the link to your newsletter 
         
       -  Reuse a newsletter by hovering over a newsletter and clicking Reuse
         
        -  Create a new newsletter by clicking Create New
        

    Note: It is not currently possible to delete newsletters from the dashboard. This is a feature we are working on!

  • Sending a Wix ShoutOut Newsletter Using a Yahoo or AOL Email Address

    Wix ShoutOut newsletters are sent via Wix servers on behalf of its users.

    In recent months, both Yahoo and AOL published a DMARC policy of reject. This means that Yahoo and AOL now include a line of text in their DNS record telling mailbox providers to reject any email from a Yahoo or AOL domain if it does not come from a Yahoo or AOL server address. Both email service providers have reportedly changed their policy in an effort to combat fraudulent emails. 

    Due to the change in both Yahoo and AOL’s DMARC email policy, Wix ShoutOut newsletters sent from an @yahoo.com or @aol.com email address will likely be rejected by its recipients. 

    What can you do?

    We recommend that you send out all Wix ShoutOuts using a private domain (eg. @your-business.com) or a different web mail provider (eg. Gmail). Keep in mind that other web mail providers may change their DMARC policies, and, therefore, we strongly suggest using an email address with your own private domain.
