Introduction 00:00:00

  • The video will discuss new updates to the newsletter and email features in Brilliant Directories.

Time for an Update… 00:00:30

  • The goal of the update is to reduce reliance on third-party email marketing platforms.
  • New features aim to provide more information and flexibility with built-in tools.
  • The update brings 80-90% of the features offered by dedicated email sending solutions directly into the Brilliant Directories platform.

Old System vs. New System 00:01:42

  • New email and newsletter features allow users to create and edit newsletters without selecting a template, exclude smart lists when sending newsletters, and view detailed statistics on newsletter performance.
  • Users can now create smart lists based on newsletter statistics, schedule newsletters in advance, and send newsletters to more than 1,000 recipients at a time at cheaper rates compared to dedicated email marketing platforms.
  • Further improvements and updates are planned, including more detailed reporting and statistics, additional default newsletter templates, and pre-made content blocks specifically for newsletters.
  • The old newsletter system will be available until May 31st, 2024, after which the new system will become the standard.

Demo of Updates 00:07:14

  • New email and newsletter features provide detailed statistics and reporting in the admin area.
  • Users can create smart lists based on email engagement metrics and customize the from name and address for newsletters.
  • A preview tab allows users to see a live preview of their email while editing.
  • Enhancements to the email design area, including more content blocks and a user-friendly interface, are coming soon.
  • Users can preview emails from a member's perspective using their ID number and exclude specific smart lists when sending emails for targeted campaigns.
  • A scheduling feature enables users to send emails at a specific time, and the recipient limit has been increased to allow sending emails to the entire list in one batch.
  • Improved stats and analytics provide more insights into email performance, and users can clone previously sent newsletters for easy updates.
  • A new beta newsletter update button is available, and a "report an issue" button is provided for any issues experienced with the update until June. The YouTube team will promptly rectify reported issues.

Making a living off my Brilliant Directories websites

I have been working with different directory web platforms like Wordpress, 6Cube, SEOSamba and others for over 20 years. About three years ago I found out about Brilliant Directories, since then I have built 10 directories. First, the websites and pages are Google friendly right out of the box, this is one of the most important parts of a good platform to me. Second, the software is very easy to use and there is lots of help to build your site... I no longer have a regular job because I am making a living off of my 10 Brilliant Directories.
