Email blast

I will be using the email blast campaign similar to mail merge and want to send from my own email address. I would like to know how. can you send me a video how to sync this email and how to do a mail merge using my contact list in excel. Thanks
You will need to go here to enter the email address you want the email to be sent from and create an email signature.

When creating your email template, you can use a shortcode on the left side of the editor window on this page for first name - [contact first name]. This will merge the first name of every contact into each email.

Here is a video on sending emails out of the system.
