There are a couple of different ways you can send emails to prospects and customers using ClickFunnels.
The first is to connect a third-party autoresponder service to ClickFunnels and have the messages go out using that autoresponder.
And the other option is to connect an SMTP account, which will allow you to send out broadcasts and “smart” email sequences from within ClickFunnels.
Now, you will need to have Actionetics enabled, which means you’ll need to have the Etison Suite plan, in order to send out messages from within your ClickFunnels account.
The video below shows you how to create email broadcasts in Actionetics…
And as far as being able to create email templates with Actionetics, I’m not sure if you have that ability or not. I haven’t found a tutorial in the ClickFunnels Help Center…
So, I would reach out to ClickFunnels support to confirm whether or not that’s possible.
Also, if you haven’t yet invested in ClickFunnels, I would highly recommend checking out the Funnel Hacks special offer.
It’s the only deal or discount that exists for ClickFunnels and will not only give you access to some incredibly valuable bonuses that will help you make a ton more money with ClickFunnels if you actually implement them, but investing in Funnel Hacks will also save you hundreds of dollars on your ClickFunnels membership.
