Hey there! Today I want to share with you my personal experience and step-by-step guide on how to download a backup of MailerLite. As a blogger and email marketer, I understand the importance of having a backup of my subscriber list and email campaigns.
Why Download a Backup of MailerLite?
Before we dive into the steps, let’s quickly discuss why it’s essential to have a backup of your MailerLite data. Accidents happen, and sometimes we may unintentionally delete or modify our email campaigns or subscriber list. Having a backup ensures that you can easily recover any lost or corrupted data, saving you time, effort, and potential headaches.
Step 1: Login to Your MailerLite Account
To start the process, head over to the MailerLite website and log in to your account using your credentials. Once you’re in, navigate to the dashboard where you will find all the necessary tools and options.
Step 2: Access the Account Settings
In the top right corner of the dashboard, you’ll find your account avatar. Click on it, and a drop-down menu will appear. From this menu, select “Account”. This will take you to the account settings page where you can manage various aspects of your MailerLite account.
Step 3: Export Your Subscribers
On the left-hand side menu of the Account settings page, click on the “Subscribers” tab. This will open a submenu with different options related to subscriber management. From here, select “Export” to start the backup process.
MailerLite provides you with various export options. You can choose to export all subscribers or filter them based on specific criteria such as groups, segments, or tags. Select the option that best suits your needs.
Step 4: Export Your Campaigns
Now that you have exported your subscribers, it’s time to backup your email campaigns. On the left-hand side menu of the Account settings page, click on the “Campaigns” tab. Here, you’ll find a list of all your past and current email campaigns.
To backup a specific campaign, click on it to open the campaign details page. On the top right of the page, you’ll find a three-dot menu icon. Click on it, and a drop-down menu will appear. From this menu, select “Export as HTML” to download a backup of your campaign as an HTML file.
Step 5: Save Your Data
After exporting both your subscribers and campaigns, it’s crucial to save these files in a secure location. You can choose to save them on your computer, an external hard drive, or a cloud storage service like Google Drive or Dropbox. Remember to create a folder specifically for your MailerLite backups for easy access and organization.
Backing up your MailerLite data is a simple yet essential task that ensures the safety and security of your email marketing efforts. By following these steps and regularly creating backups, you can gain peace of mind and have a fallback plan in case of any unforeseen issues.
I hope this guide has been helpful to you. Remember that prevention is always better than cure, and taking a few minutes to back up your data can save you from a lot of potential frustration in the future.
