To get started creating your email campaign, click on the Create button and then click on Campaigns.
From here you can see all of the campaigns you have created, both sent and unsent.
To create a new campaign, click on Campaign Designer.
To begin, you need to choose a template. Try to select one that matches the planned layout of your email.
You can create your own email templates if needed.
You will need to click on Create and then on Template settings.
From here, you can clone the set templates, make changes, and then save one as your own custom email template, or if you have the knowledge you could completely code one from scratch.
Ok, let’s go back to the campaign designer.
Once you have chosen a template, simply hover over it then click on the preview button to have a closer look.
When you’re happy, click Select to use it.
You can now start editing the template to create your email campaign:
You can simply drag and drop areas of the template to rearrange the structure of the email.
Change text by clicking on the section and using the editor.
You also have control of font type, size and colour, as well as the positioning of your text, amongst all of the other standard word processing tools.
There are also some additional tools at your disposal, like Personalisation.
Click on the button here. You can then choose from the options in the dropdown list.
This will insert the information from your subscriber lists once the campaign is sent.
Don’t forget to add an alternative text in case the subscriber has not given that information to you.
Another tool you can use is the Go social! Option.
Simply click on the button here and then fill out the fields to add a link to your social pages within your email.
Once you are happy with a section, make sure to click apply to add the changes.
You can also add in images to your email.
Simply click on the placeholder image or anywhere you wish to add one.
Now click on the image icon here.
You can now upload and manage your email campaign images.
These images will be stored in your account so you can use them again.
Once you have uploaded an image, select it and then click on the Insert button.
Make sure to click on the Apply button to confirm the change.
Go ahead and start making your changes.
You will begin to see your professional looking email take shape, ready to be sent out as part of a campaign.
Once you have finished creating or when you have made some substantial progress on your email, make sure to click on the save button.
You will then need to name the campaign, and give it an email subject that will be used when it is sent out.
Just here add in the from name, address and a reply to address.
You have a few other options you can choose to use if you wish.
Including generating a plain text version of your email.
Once you have filled out this information, you can either save and exit to finish designing it later on or save and continue to carry on designing now.
