Q: How can I tell if a message I send through the Mass Messaging system has been delivered?
A: Sending Member Messages
- Click on the "Send Message" under the Members Only tab
- Include your Subject, Message, and check "All Members" or on the specific members you would like to contact.
- Press the red "Send Message" button at the bottom of the page to send the message. DO NOT CLICK MORE THAN ONCE - BE PATIENT. Wait until you see a note "Messages sent to xxx people" after the messages have been sent and delivered; this might take a few minutes if you message all the members (they might not be delivered if you leave the messaging page too soon). The messages are sent in batches of 100. As well, you can view your sent messages when you click on "Sent" on your messaging page.

To share a special, please go ahead and like our page (you can do this from both your personal account and business page). Post on the page, preferably as your business and what the special is. Jacki Pitkow, who is the admin for the page will make a note when the post will be 'reposted' for you (it will reach more viewers this way).
Please note there maybe up to a 24-48 hour turnaround depending on how many requests come in.
