How Mailveteran Mail Merge Works?
Configure your Google spreadsheet and list your recipients
It would be best if you also had your contact list ready. After installing the add-on, Go to Addons > Mailveteran > Start Mail Merge to open Mailveteran
Add column headers to your spreadsheet.
Each column will represent a personalized field in your email. In this simple example, we have only 5 columns: firstname, email, company, position, and website. The data in these columns can be used as personalized variables in your email. You can add as many columns as you want and pick any column header name you want.
Fill the spreadsheet with your recipients’ data
Fill your spreadsheet with all the information needed. Ensure all email cells are filled with valid email addresses. However, Once you run the Mail Merge, you can name any column from the spreadsheet as a recipient column. For example, if you called it ‘Prospects’, select the Prospects as recipient column in Mailveteran. Apart from emails, you can leave some cells blank, that’s fine! Our Mail Merge will skip those details in personalisation.
Once your contact list is ready, Create a simple draft email template in Gmail then open Mailveteran and start the campaign. In menu, go to Add-ons> Mailveteran > Open Mailveteran

2)How to track and measure your emailing campaign results?
With our tracking tool, all stats on your campaign are retrieved in real-time. Every time a recipient opens, clicks, or unsubscribes from your email, or if your emails bounce, the information is automatically and immediately recorded in the report. After sending your mail merge, the tracking report automatically opens on the right sidebar of your Google Sheets.
Check your tracking stats again
If you have closed the tracking sidebar, you can always open it again through the add-on menu. A new entry called Open tracking report appears.
3)Schedule a mail merge from multiple accounts
Mailveteran automatically sends your scheduled campaign from one of your accounts. When you don’t have enough quota anymore, Mailveteran switches to another account etc. So in the end, each account will send parts of your campaign one after another one.
