Set Up

Setting up your Mailshot Monkey account is quick and easy, but it will require some input and information from you. Where possible we do as much as we can, but to do things properly we need the information detailed below.

Step 1

Site & Email Set Up

All Mailshot Monkey accounts are paid in advance on a subscription basis, payment is via Paypal or using your card via our online processor, Stripe. Once your subscription is setup, there are some details we need from you to set up your new account. This information is gathered in the form in step two.

Don't worry, we're on hand to help as much as possible. If you're not sure about anything, just get in touch.

Which email Address?

All your newsletters will be sent via our mail servers but the from and reply to email addresses will be yours, so you need to tell us which email you want to use.

Often, it's a good idea to set up a dedicated email address, like, but it's not a requirement.

Decide which address you want to use and supply it to us on the form below.

New Website Pages

As a minimum, your website is going to need two new pages: Subscribe; for the subscribe form. Unsubscribe; for the unsubscribe form.

It's possible these already exist, if not they need to be created. If you don't know how to do this contact your website manager or give us the details and we'll try to do it for you.

We will give you the code to put the subscribe and unsubscribe boxes onto these pages.

It's highly recommended you also create a Hello, Goodbye and Nearly There page.

Hello This is the page your subscribers are sent to once they've completed the double opt-in process. Ours looks like this:

Goodbye This is the page those unsubscribing are taken too once they've requested to leave your list via the on-site unsubscribe form. Ours looks like this:

Nearly-There This is the page your subscribers are sent to after they've used the on-site subscribe form. It tells them about your double opt-in process, why you use it and what they should do next to confirm their subscription. Ours looks like this:

If you choose not to create a hello, goodbye and nearly-there page our system will use generic automated pages instead, which will not have any of your branding on them.

REMEMBER: We're here to help: If you can't create these pages, we'll do it for you.

Automated Email Text

During the signup process our system will send up to three emails to the new subscriber.

Confirmation Email This is the double opt-in email. It's sent out automatically after the new subscriber has added their details to the subscribe form. It will contain the confirmation link they need to click to confirm their subscription and can contain some text explaining why they need to click it.

Welcome Email This is sent to your new subscriber once the double opt-in process is complete.

Goodbye Email This is sent to a subscriber once they've unsubscribed from your list.

We can add our generic text to these emails for you, or if you want to add something specific you can, just add it to the form below.

Step 2

Data Collection Form

To get you up and running quickly and efficiently please complete this form as fully as possible. Doing so will mean we have everything we need to hand and won't need to bother you until you're ready to go.

If you're not comfortable using forms, or would simple prefer to do it by phone, drop us an email and we'll schedule a phone call.

After you completed the Paypal subscription process you were allocated anAutomatic payment number/name, put this here.

This is the name that will displayed as the business name in your MSM account, and in your newsletters if you add it.

This is the address you would like to appear in the "from" and "reply to" section of newsletters you send out.

If you have created your new website pages as detailed above, please supply the new page URL's below. If you haven't yet created them please move on to the next section.

This is the page subscribers will be sent to once they've successfully completed the double opt-in process.

This is the page subscribers will be sent to when they unsubscribe.

This is the page subscribers will be sent to informing them of your double opt-in process.

Referring back to the instructions above, we need your text for the three automated emails our system sends out. If you wish to use our generic text leave this section blank and go to the next.

This is the text that will appear in the double opt-in email sent to all new subscribers.

This is the text that will appear in the welcome email sent to all new subscribers once they've completed the double opt-in signup..

This is the text that will appear in the Goodbye email sent to thoe who unsubscribe.
