Creating your newsletter is a 4 step process that starts with choosing a template and customising it and ends with sending your email to recipients. The editing panel is similar to the editor used in Microsoft Word for adding text, formatting it, adding links and inserting images.
HTML: You're able to see all the design elements of your message, copy and paste text into this panel as well as upload and insert images. Hover your cursor over the icons to paste text, insert links and upload your images.
Text: If some recipients can't receive image and design rich mail, you can enable a plain text version. Automatically extract text or copy it from the HTML version. You can edit the text version sent to clients unable to receive the HTML version.
Attachments: You're able to add attachments to your message if this feature is enabled on your account. ‘Browse My Computer' button to upload your file. Once uploaded, you'll be able to view attachments under ‘Existing Attachments' where you can view the attachment size or delete it.
On the HTML tab, you have the option to Upload a ZIP file or import from URL. These options are ideal to import your own newsletter layout and design and have selected a blank template to work from.
Upload ZIP: Click on Upload ZIP to pop in an HTML file containing the design and content of your newsletter.
Import from URL: If your newsletter content is published online, you can ‘fetch’ it from the page. Click on the Import from URL checkbox and enter the URL.
Choose to fetch the content now if you want to edit and send it. Alternatively if you’re scheduling the mail for 10:00 am the next day, the design will be imported from the URL when it's scheduled to be sent.
