Setting up your account
First of all we’ll need a few things from you to create your account:
- Venue list, let us know the names and addresses of your venues.
- Email address, will you be using a single email address e.g email@example.com or would you prefer to localise this e.g firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Put us in contact with your IT team so that we can help them set up your branded domain - find out more here.
- Let us know your data sources so that we can create your initial folders and groups.
Creating your email templates
- We will build a template for you to create all of your emails from, this keeps things simple and means that your emails are the best possible optimisation in our supported email clients.
- We will need your logos, brand guidelines and any images you want to use. You can find some guidance on images here.
Adding your data
- We have several existing integrations with data sources, let us know who you use for WiFi, Bookings, Feedback etc.

Creating your forms
- We’ve created a simple form to collect all of the information we need from you here. You can read more about Airship forms here.
- We will supply you with your own IP to maximise your email deliverability, this means we need to go through a period of IP warming to help you build a great reputation with all email clients. We’ll advise a plan for this on a case by case basis.
Create your automated emails
- We advise you set up a series of automated emails to welcome your customers, drive birthday bookings and clean your database. We’ll help you set these up during your onboarding and you can read more about each automation below:
