MarketSharp Email Set Up

MarketSharp M now has the ability to automatically send email templates to a contact. This

Feature allows you to queue up one or more email messages to automatically be sent on a

Future date (i.e. drip marketing campaigns). The Auto Email feature leaves you worry-free

When it comes to remembering to send out those important emails.
