How to use the promotions page

The promotions page is where you can search and view all of your published or upcoming promotions, access the calendar view and create a promotion.

To access the promotions page, click on either the Promotions link in the Letterhead menu or the See all promotions link to the right of Upcoming scheduled promotions from your newsletter dashboard.

Promotions table: List view

On the right side of the promotions table, you can filter the promotions list to show Upcoming or Published promotions. In the promotions table or List view, you can quickly view the following columns:

  • Scheduled: the date the promotion is scheduled for publication (Upcoming), or when the promotion was published (Published).
  • Promotion: the promotion type selected, the promoter's organization name, and the actions that can be performed on this promotion (View or Edit, Clone, and Copy HTML).
  • Promoter: the promoter's organization name — this column displays only when viewing Upcoming promotions.

The columns described below, display only when viewing Published promotions:

  • Reads (estimated): the newsletter's average open rate, calculated using its latest total number of subscribers and open rate. Use this as a guide for the potential number of subscribers who may see any promotion.
  • Verified views (beta)*: the number of times a promotion was viewed, measured by Letterhead’s pixel tracker.
  • Verified clicks (beta)*: the number of times a promotion’s call-to-action link is clicked.
    • * The number of views and clicks start to accrue within 4 hours after the promotion is published and continue to update every 4 hours.

Use the search bar on the top left corner of the table to search for keywords displayed in the columns.

View, Edit, Clone, and Delete a promotion

All promotions can be viewed and cloned, but only upcoming scheduled promotions can be edited or deleted:

  • To view the details of a promotion, click on View under the promotion type and promoter's organization name in the Promotion column.
