So you’ve set up your account, and maybe even sent a bunch of newsletters already. Nice!
But you’re curious about everything you can customize in your account. We get it — there are a bunch of different fields in the ‘Account Settings’ page and they may seem confusing at first. Don’t worry! After reading this guide, you’ll know your way around your account like the back of your hand.
Tip: If you’re looking for details on a specific tab within the Account Settings page, just scroll down to the relevant heading.
There are 10 things you can do here (that seems like a lot, but it's not as scary as it sounds). Deep breath:
- EMAIL ADDRESS
Define the email address you’d like replies to be sent to.
Define your account username . This will update the first part of the ‘From’ email address your readers will see (email@example.com), as well as the last part of your profile URL (www.getrevue.co/profile/username). NB. If you change this field, remember to let people know your profile URL has also changed!
- PROFILE PAGE
Choose to show your past issues on your profile page, only the sign up form, or make it private by taking the page offline.
- PROFILE IMAGE
This will appear on your profile page and in every issue of your newsletter. It will be cropped into a circle shape, so upload a square image for best results.
- NEWSLETTER TITLE
This will be shown at the top of your profile page and in your newsletter footer. It could be your name, a topic you want to write about or even a catchy title that goes with your brand.
- NEWSLETTER AUTHOR
If you want to use your Newsletter Title to signpost what you’ll be writing about, you can choose to write your name in this field. This will appear below the Newsletter Title on your profile page and in the ‘From’ field when readers receive your emails. NB. If you leave this field blank, the Newsletter Title will appear in the ‘From’ field when readers receive your emails.
- ISSUES DESCRIPTION
Describe your newsletter to your readers. What will you be writing about? This will be shown in your newsletter footer and on your profile page.
- WELCOME TEXT
This will be sent to subscribers when they first sign up to your newsletter. You can exit the default text to make it personal — and even link to your social media or website.
- ADDRESS INFORMATION
If you’d like to add your company address to your newsletter footer, fill it in here.
Paste in the links to your website, social media pages, LinkedIn, Pinterest and more so your readers can find you elsewhere on the internet. Clickable icons will appear on your profile page.
Here’s how all that info looks on your profile page:
There are 6 things you can do on the Settings tab...
- SUBSCRIBER COUNT
Choose to show or hide the number of subscribers on your profile page.
Choose to receive or not receive email updates every time a new person subscribes to your newsletter.
Set the language for your profile page, newsletter and notification emails (NB. It’s not currently possible to change the language of the Revue platform as a whole — that’s only available in English at the moment).
Change the timezone associated with your account.
- GOOGLE ANALYTICS CAMPAIGN PARAMS
We’ll automatically add UTM paramaters to all URLs in the newsletter so you can track them. By default, we use the Newsletter Title as the value for the utm_campaign parameter, but you can manually set the value here.
- CUSTOM DOMAIN
Set up a custom domain. Newsletters will automatically be hosted on the getrevue.co domain unless you change this setting. Learn more about setting up a custom domain here.
We like to keep things simple here so you can focus on writing your awesome newsletter. There are 3 things you can do to customize your design:
- Pick a theme: Just two options here, but they’re both great. Check out this page for more info on what you get with each.
- Change your header image: Give your newsletter some personality.
- Change your primary and secondary colors: Choose your brand colors — or simply colors you like.
You can do so much more with Revue simply by connecting it to other apps you use on a daily basis, making it that much easier to automate tasks.
On the ‘Integrations’ tab in your ‘Account Settings’, you can link different sources with Revue — so when you surf the web, the content you find can be easily accessed later from the Revue editor to drop into your newsletter.
There’s also a whole bunch of tools (like Zapier) that can help with many things, from managing and growing your subscriber list to publishing your newsletters on different platforms.
Because there’s so much you can do here, we’ve created a whole help section to guide you through your Integration options.
Here’s where the money’s at. If you are currently writing a newsletter with no paid option, this is where you can take the plunge and add a paid newsletter option, creating a whole new stream of income. Here’s how to do that from the Members tab.
Already running a paid newsletter? The Members tab is your friend. You can:
- Add a title and description to the Members tab of your profile page
- Set the monthly subscription fee to your newsletter
- Offer your readers discounts
- Deactivate your paid newsletter
Here, you can view and edit the team members who have access to your account. Your team members all have the same permissions — they can edit account information and write and send newsletters. Find out more about managing a team on Revue.
