What is an E-blast?
E-blasts are emails that can be sent out to multiple people - you can use them to create newsletters, run fundraising campaigns, and even reach out to Volunteers! The possibilities are endless. Keela's E-blast tool allows you to build your mass email communication from scratch or set up templates that you can use whenever you'd like! Keela even tracks the statistics of your email communications so that you can see how successful your message was and strategically target your future messages.
What are E-blast Templates?
E-blasts can be sent as a one-time message or you can create an E-blast Template to use every time you need to reach out to your Contacts.
E-blast Templates are very useful if you send out regular messages to your Contacts that have a similar style and branding. You can create a general design for your E-blasts and save it as a Template - each time you need to send a new E-blast, choose to begin with this Template. Then, you can add as much new information as you need.
Don't want to design your own? No worries! We've created some pre-made templates that you can use or edit to suit any occasion!
