How to create mailing labels is something I've been asked to help with by a few agents now. There's no way, currently, to perform this task using eEdge's myMarketing tools, and the most common way of creating mailing labels, using Microsoft Word, is fairly complex. In fact, creating mailing labels using Word requires the user to utilize both Microsoft Excel and Word by making them communicate via a tool called "mail merge".
The typical way to create mailing labels is to create an Excel spreadsheet full of contact information organized into columns, then begin a mail merge in Word that takes the data from the spreadsheet and reorganizes it into pretty sheets of labels. Microsoft's Word Blog explains how to perform a mail merge if you're at all interested in the terrible experience that awaits you.
It's a difficult task, and both times I've done it, Microsoft Word left out random contacts from the label sheets. It's not a fun process to go through thousands of contacts looking for missing people. In the tutorial video, I'll show you how to create mailing labels from your eEdge myContacts using Avery's Design & Print Online tool.
