A. How to set up policies and identities for your Digital Marketing Module?

  • To set up your identity and policies, you can navigate to Create > Company > Digital Marketing
  • Here, you can make some key changes that will help build you begin your Digital Marketing using the SHC platform. They are - 
    • A coach can create a campaign - Enabling this allows your Personal Trainers and other service providers to run their own E-Mail campaigns allowing them to send e-mails to certain clients/sets of members. By default, this is only accessible by Managers. 
    • A coach can use campaigns created by directors - Enabling this allows your personal trainers/service providers to use a manager/directors campaign. 
    • Add Identity - This is an important part of the setup since the campaigns will predominantly be run through E-Mail. Here, when you click on "Add Identity", it allows you to add - 
      • A Domain - This setup is used to set up a specific domain/subdomain that your e-mails will be sent through. Here, you can also set a "From" and "Reply-To" E-Mail ID. 

        When you select the Domain option, you would also need to provide a domain name. It is best to get this information from your IT department. 

        After you have filled in the domain name, From, and Reply-To email addresses, click on Save.

        You will then see ‘DNS Records’ with three CNAME records. Please take help from your IT department to put these CNAME records in your DNS server. 



      • An E-Mail - Here, you can simply decide on a "From" and "Reply-To" E-Mail ID and click on Save. 

        You will receive one email from Amazon to verify your email. Once you have verified your email, reload the Identity page or click on the refresh button to get the updated status.

NOTE - Verification may take up to 72 hours for domain verification. 

NOTE - To set this up, you may need to contact your IT Department or Web Developer.
