Sending an email with Sumo
Creating a group
When you open the Sumo Launcher, you'll see the list of subscribers in the Contacts tab, so you will first need to create a group of subscribers that you wish to email.
This is really simple, all you need to do is go to Contacts tab, click on Groups tab and click the button Create Group.
This will create an empty group, so the next thing we need to do is to import the subscribers to that group.
1 IMPORTING THE SUBSCRIBERS FROM A CSV FILE
You can easily import the whole CSV file simply by going to the group you created and clicking on Import Contacts button.
Give it a few minutes for the subscribers to start showing up and you're good to go.
2 MANUALLY ADDING SELECTED SUBSCRIBERSYou can manually choose which subscribers you wish to add to a group simply by going to Contacts tab and checking the boxes next to subscribers you wish to add to a group. After you selected all the subscribers, all you need to do is click on Add To Group from the dropdown menu and give it a few minutes for all the subscribers to show up.
Now that you have subscribers in a group, you're ready to send an email!
