Client Services Updates


Full Site SSL Update

The Client Services team has successfully switched over 90% of SmartEtailing clients to full site SSL. As an important reminder, if your website hasn’t been switched, it’s because we need you to take action. Please contact support@smartetailing.com so we can complete the project for you. 

Mixed Content Report

SmartEtailing is committed to keeping your website aligned with modern best practices so we made an enhancement to our infrastructure to improve your site's security and performance. Content on your site may contain unsecure elements. For example, a page that contains an external link that is not SSL (aka HTTP:// and not HTTPS://). This will cause it to be flagged as NOT secure by Google. We have created a new Report you can find in the back-end tools of your site that will assist with this. Learn More
