Using YAMM

Estimated reading time: 1 min

Write It Right: We often use Yamm to schedule email blasts, and while it’s a terrific tool: it has its limitations. The Name and Email columns should always be the first and second on every list.

Always make sure to properly capitalize names and verify that the emails you input are complete. Streamer usernames should be written how the streamer registered it.

Ex:

1. Prerequisites

1.1. Install YAMM on your Google account

Make sure that you have already YAMM installed on your Gmail or Google Workspace account. If not, read this article: Install Yet Another Mail Merge on your individual account

1.2. Import your contact to Google Sheets

You also need to have your contact list ready. After installing the add-on, pop-up indicates where to go in the Google Sheets menu to open YAMM.

Close it, then choose to import your contacts from Google Contacts or add emails yourself.

As a minimum, your spreadsheet should contain a recipient column.

You can then fill the other columns with information that you need for your campaign.

2. Create your Gmail template

Go to Gmail to create an email template.

In our example, we’re sending a simple email confirmation (banner + text) for a hotel reservation. We added two markers, {{First Name}} and {{Booking Date}} to personalize the emails with data from the spreadsheet.

Close your template to save it as a draft in Gmail.

3. Start your mail merge using YAMM

Go back to your spreadsheet, and select Add-ons > Yet Another Mail Merge Start Mail Merge.

Warning Once you click Send emails, it is not possible to cancel your mail merge delivery. Make sure you double-check your campaign (draft, recipient list, data, etc.) before sending your email.

A progress bar appears, providing real-time information about the exact number of emails being sent by YAMM.
