How to upload a CSV file?
1. Click on the Contacts icon on the top right corner of your Remarkety dashboard and choose “Upload Contacts"
2. Give your list a tag (optional). This tag is the same thing as a title. You can create a new tag or use an existing one to add more contacts to a specific existing tag. This tag will be used later if you want to segment a campaign and send it only to this list of contacts (by using the “Customer’s tag” condition in the campaign segmentation).
3. Click on the “Choose File” button to find the file on your computer.
4. Click the “Upload” button.
5. In the next screen you’ll need to tell us which data can be found in each column. For example column a is the customer first name, column b is last name, column 3 is email address and so on. You can choose to ignore non-relevant columns by choosing the “Nothing (skip)” option. After completing this step click on the “Finish adding subscribers” button.
6. Your list will now be uploaded. Bigger lists might take a few minutes to finish uploading. After all the contacts are uploaded, you will see a set a count of:
- New contacts
- Invalid Emails
That's it. You are all set.
