You are preparing the latest email campaign full of exciting news and features. You've selected good subject, nice copyright and a professional design. But right before sending it you need to update the email marketing list with the new users.
Now, you would probably need to login to your database management software and perform a search for the new users since the last time. Then export them in a suitable format - CSV or Excel and import in the email marketing provider. Match the file content with names and emails and then you are probably ready to send your campaign.
