Increase the reach of your published stories by sending them directly to the email inbox of your colleagues, clients, press contacts, and more.
To get started, first set up an ambassadors/press channel. This help article will show you how to do that.
Or watch our Academy video 📹 on setting up your brand ambassadors for a step-by-step guide:
Customizing the contents of each email
Once you have created an ambassadors/press channel, you will be able to change some settings such as the from name and email address, and choose whether to include the options of downloading the published story and sharing it on social media.
Enabling an ambassador/press channel for a story
Step 1. Navigate to your stories page and open a story by clicking on the Edit link (or create a new story by clicking on the + new story button).
Step 2. Once you are a ready to publish your story, head over to the Audience tab to activate your Ambassadors channel from the channels list. You can activate several Ambassadors lists if you want to send the email to several groups of people.
Step 3. Here you will see a preview of the email. Feel free to customize the message and subject to make them both personal and unique.
Step 4. Publish/schedule the story to all of your channels, including the Ambassadors channel. Emails will then be sent out to all of your contacts within the list(s).
Receiving an Ambassadors email
The contacts inside the list or lists that you have activated in the previous step will receive an email, that will look similar to this:
By clicking on the cover image or the text, they will be redirected to the blog article on your blog/website.
To share the content on their own network, they just need to click on the social media buttons right above the cover image to create the post on the selected platform.
Open the report of your published stories to find out which of your contacts opened the email and clicked on a link to read/share the story.
Sent: When the email was sent from StoryChief.
Delivered: When the email was received by the contact's email server.
Viewed: When the email was first opened by the contact.
