Step By Step Instructions

  1. Click the "Messages" tab and select "Broadcasts." Go to the "Sent" tab and click "Copy to Drafts" under the message you want to resend.

    Click Copy to Drafts

  2. There are two ways you can create a segment of subscribers who did not open your Broadcast message. First, you can segment from the QuickStats page. Click the subject line or "View Stats" to go to the QuickStats page.

    Go to the QuickStats page

    Underneath the stats chart, click the "Unopened" tab. A segment of subscriber who did not open this message can be created by clicking the "Create a Segment of these Subscribers" button.

    Click the save segment button

    Or, you can create a segment from your "Subscribers" page. From the "Subscribers" page, select "Message not opened" from the "Search Option" drop-down menu. Then, select your message.

    Search message not opened

    After you click "Search", all subscribers who have not opened that message will be displayed below. You can save the search as a segment here.

    Save the segment

    : Segments are dynamic! This means as subscribers open your message, they will automatically be removed from this segment. You do not need to save a new segment each time as it will automatically be updated as subscribers open your message. 

  3. Now, we can schedule the broadcast to your segment. Return to your "Drafts" page, like if you were sending a normal broadcast, and click on "Schedule."

  4. We recommend changing the subject line, for example, you could use: "Here's what you missed." Renaming the Broadcast will differentiate from the previously sent message and a new call-to-action can encourage your subscribers to interact with your message. 

    Change the subject line

  5. Under the "Who should receive this message?" section, click the "Edit" button.

  6. From the drop-down box that will appear, you can choose your saved segment.

  7. Then click "Apply" to save that change.

    Click Apply

Once you make any other changes to scheduling and social sharing, you can schedule your broadcast as usual.

Note: If sending to a segment and also including additional lists, that segmenting rule will be applied to those included lists too.
