Adding attachments to campaigns
GoDaddy Email Marketing does not support traditional email attachments, but you can still share files with your recipients.
Why can't I attach files to my campaigns?
This is because attachments can significantly hurt the ability of your emails to land in your recipients' inboxes. Bulk emails with traditionally attached files, most likely will end up in the spam folder. There are many cases of attachments being used to spread malware, so campaigns that contain attachments are likely to be flagged as spam by ISPs (internet service providers) and email clients.
So how do send files to my subscribers if I can use an attachment?
Store your file somewhere online (such as your own website), and generate a public link to that file.
If you don't have your file stored on your website, here's how to generate links for files stored in other locations:
- OneDrive (Microsoft 365 from GoDaddy): After you access OneDrive, upload your file, select Share, then select Get a link then Create link.
- Google Docs: Share a link to a file
- Dropbox: Share link
Take that generated link and put it into your campaign. Link your file to regular text or an image.
