Emails that Photographers create and send to their Clients

Included with your Zenfolio account is the ability to store a Contacts list of your friends and clients.  You can then send emails to your contacts for use in marketing and promoting your site.

Uses for sending emails to your contacts can include:

  • Informing your clients of newly uploaded photos
  • Informing your clients of sales and coupons
  • Informing your clients of site changes and new blog posts
  • General marketing emails for a photography website

Please note that this is not the same as a general use email inbox such as gmail, Yahoo mail or Hotmail.  This does not provide an email inbox for receiving emails.

Also this does not provide a custom email address based on your custom domain.  For such an email address and service, you will need to contact a domain registrar or host.

For Pro and Advanced users, the ability to create your own email templates is provided.

  4. If you have the recipient's addresses in your contact list, click Contacts to select the addresses for the correct recipients.
  5. In the To field, enter the email address of the recipient or multiple recipients with commas or semicolons between each address. In the case of multiple recipients, multiple emails are sent out, one for each recipient. So every email sent will only have one recipient listed.
