Step 7: Update AcyMailing Vendor Mailing List

There are two parts to this step: first update the AcyMailing user database from the Joomla database, then update the Vendor Mailing List from the updated AcyMailing database.

From Joomla menu: select Component > AcyMailing > Users

Click the "Import" icon.

Select "Joomla Users"; do NOT select any list to subscribe - this is to update the AcyMailing User Database only

Click the "Import" icon.

It should give you a number of users added. Should be non-zero.

From the AcyMailing menus on the page: select Lists > Filters

Click "Add Vendors to Vendor List"

Click "Process" icon.

Promotion on twitter

Make a note on twitter and let the community know that new vendor (you may need to go to their web page to check their twitter ID) is new on the ecosystem directory, linking to it. The tweet should include #xen and is intended to get more vendors to sign up.
