Andrew B

In this article, we will cover an Overview of the Marketing Settings Section located in Marketing. Below is a video to help you get started!

Prior to getting started, you will need to have the following:

  1. A ClickFunnels 2.0 account.
  2. (Optional) You may benefit from having completed the module Introduction to ClickFunnels 2.0.

How can you pre-set your business, physical address, and email settings for marketing?  You can establish the information you need to grow your business using Marketing Settings.  This will let you establish these settings in advance to focus on building the branding in your email marketing.

Accessing Marketing Settings

  1. In your ClickFunnels account, navigate to the Marketing tab on the left-hand side of the screen.

  2. Then, click on Marketing settings in the Marketing sub-menu.

Setting up General Settings

    1. You will now find yourself on the Marketing settings dashboard.  In the first section, you can set up your marketing contact address.  This address will be visible at the bottom of all emails to comply with CANSPAM regulations.

      1. In the line of Name/Company, include your business or company name.
      2. In this section, include your full business address.  This should be a mailing address at which your business can be reached. 
    2. In the next section, you will have the opportunity to include an unsubscribe footer.  This footer will go out on every one of your emails and allow a contact to unsubscribe from your list.  International law requires that this footer be present, clear, and not misleading.  If left blank, a default footer will appear on each email.

      Important Note: This area supports HTML code. You can copy the snippet below, paste it into the field, and edit the Company Name, Address, and Phone information. 

      <center><p>Company Name | 123 Address, City, State, Zip | 9876543210</p>
      <p><a href="#UN_SUB#">Unsubscribe</a></p></center>

    3. (Optional)  Higher-tier accounts will have the opportunity to select the Hide Powered By branding toggle.  This switch allows high-level users to deactivate the ClickFunnels branding on emails powered by ClickFunnels.

    4. In the next section, you can select email addresses for your account emails.  The From addresses should be a business email address, not from a free provider such as Gmail or Hotmail.  The Reply-To addresses can be any email address, including a free provider address.  Responses will go to the From address if you do not include a Reply-To address.  If you do not set up these, the From address will be a noreply powered by ClickFunnels.

      4. Marketing Reply To Address:  This email address will respond to your marketing messages.
