The HTML editor is for those familiar with HTML, or who have their code already written. To access it, click the orange ‘Create One’ button under ‘Email Campaigns’ on the Messages page.
Once you are on the ‘Select a Template’ page, you’ll be able to access the HTML editor on the left hand side of the page. Located on each section of the ‘Themes’ dropdown box, click the green ‘Import HTML’ button to enter the editor and add your code.
This editor will walk you through the steps to get your email out in no time.
First, enter the Subject line you want to use in the box provided. If you need to edit your ‘From Label’ or ‘Email Address’, use the ‘Header Settings’ option on the right hand side of the page. You’ll also be able to see the name of your email here so you can easily find it to edit later or check your stats. You’ll need to save your updates before moving to the body section of the code.
The Body section is where you’ll paste your code. You have two options: Copy and Paste your code or Import your code. To paste your code directly into the template, simply copy from the original source and copy into the Body section over the default code.
For those who have stored html codes in files, simply click ‘Import HTML’ and find your file. Open your file and it will directly import into the Body of the email.
Need to tag your content for easy finding later? Be sure to use any of the suggested content tags located on the right hand side of the page to customize your email.
The Footer section contains your unsubscribe message. Click on ‘Email Preferences’ to access the Footer content section where you can update your postal address information and set unsubscribe preferences for customers.
The postal address will be your business address. Both unsubscribe and a valid postal address are both required by the CAN-SPAM law, so you’ll be required to fill in this information.
Remember, it is also recommended that you always ‘Test’ and ‘Preview’ your email, although it is not required. Once you are finished with your edits, click ‘Next’ to select your segments for sending.
