So are you ready to create a campaign? Awesome! (Just remember you will need to create a list before you can create a campaign.) Depending on your experience level, a lot of functionality in Mail Blaze offers a lot of different ways to skin a cat (if you're into that sort of thing). For the sake of simplicity we recommend you use the email builder to begin with. Ready? Great! Here we go:
Let's add an image. If you haven't already got a block that contains an image, drag the "Image" block into the ‘BODY' window and click on the image placeholder. Information about the image will appear in the left hand pane. Click ‘Browse' to add your image. In the Image Gallery window, click the ‘Choose File' button and browse to the image you would like to upload. Click ‘Upload selected file' to upload the image. Click your uploaded image and it should appear in your email. Add the width of the image in the 'W:' field and the height of the image in the 'H:' field. The width and height are in pixels and should be the same dimensions as the image. Please note, images which are wider than 600px may break the layout of your email. For best results, resize any images to be no more than 600px wide. Once you have added the dimensions click 'Apply' and then 'Done'.
You are required by law to give users the ability to opt-out of receiving your emails. This is done by using the [UNSUBSCRIBE_URL] tag. Edit the block you would like the unsubscribe link to go. Select the copy you want to serve as your unsubscribe link, and click the "chain" icon. Select "Link Type" as "URL", "Protocol" as "
Once you are happy with your email, click ‘Save' in the top right corner of the browser window. You might need to refresh the page (f5) if you don't see anything immediately. It is now a good idea to create the plain text version of your email. You can do this by clicking the "Show plain text version" at the bottom of the page. This will expose the plain text version of your email. Feel free to make changes as required. (The plain text version is important to decrease the email's SPAM rating.) Click the "Save template changes" button at the bottom of the page and go to step 4 of this tutorial.
Click the "Save template changes" button at the bottom of the page and go to step 4 of this tutorial.
Once you are happy click the "close" button and then "Save and Next" at the bottom of the screen.
