What is SMORE?
Smore is a website that lets people design and share their own newsletters, infographics, and flyers. With a free or paid Smore subscription, you can make flyers that serve as newsletters or promote events, products, or services on social media sites or via email. Flyers can also be printed and distributed. Creation is simple: Choose from some basic styles and backgrounds, select your color scheme, fonts, etc. Click to add content (including media files) and edit any text. After content is published, the site offers easy-to-read analytics to help you track how readers are responding to promotional efforts. You can view how many visits a flyer has received that month; whether viewers came from Facebook, email, or other sources; how much time users spent reading the flyer; and more. A map shows where viewers live, and you can also print out an email report. For inspiration, there’s a large template library. These templates, created by other users, can be copied and edited, offering a good start for new users or an ongoing source of inspiration.
The Educator Basic version costs $79 per year and allows for unlimited newsletters. Teachers can send 5,000 emails per month and access analytics.
