Instructions: How to do a mail merge for a customer newsletter

Many small businesses are keen to begin mailing their customers and mail merge is an essential part of the process.

Mail merge enables you to dynamically create documents such as letters or labels, and populate parts of the newsletter or labels with data from a spreadsheet. This means you can use an existing spreadsheet of customer details to create many hundreds of customised versions in minutes.

  • Some clients don’t have access to Microsoft Office software, so a great free, highly recommended alternative is Open Office.

Here is a really useful video tutorial explaining the process of getting Open Office to create mail merged documents with ease.

If you need help creating your data spreadsheet, setting up your mail merge, or creating great looking templates to receive your customer data before printing, please get in touch for some friendly advice and recommendations.
