Our beta editor enables rich content that exports into HTML and integrates with all major email marketing automation providers.
As the feature is still in beta, there are limitations worth noting:
Email editor limitations
Maximum grid width of 600px
Background image or videos not supported
Video is not supported
Cannot show cover
Cannot pin product or textbox
Cannot disable zoom
Cannot enable scroll
Slider layout is not supported
Cannot go full-width
Cannot edit horizontal or vertical padding
Cannot add/edit margins
We highly recommend testing all emails using our beta editor using Litmus or another testing service before sending. As the product is still in beta mode, we cannot guarantee flawless execution at this stage.
Email editor workflow
From Stories Manager, click on your avatar to select New Email. You'll then be redirected to the email editor - a pared down version of Maker's classic editor.
Keeping in mind the limitations listed above, use Maker's familiar tools and capabilities to create an awesome-looking campaign.
When your email is finished, click on the Export button on the top right of the page to convert your stunning email into HTML. This may take a few minutes.
When the export window opens, you can either copy the code on the left and paste it directly into your email marketing provider's 'code your own' template, or click Downloadto grab the HTML file and upload it in your provider's window to code your email in seconds.
We highly recommend testing all emails in Litmus or a similar email client tester before sending.
Header and Footer
To add a header and footer to your first email, click on the settings icon on the top right of the page and select Edit Header and Footer.
You'll then be redirected to a new tab where you can enter the custom code for your header and footer.
We highly recommend getting your engineers involved for this one-time set-up. Once your header and footer is saved and tested, you can save this email as a template and use it to create all future emails with the header and footer already in place.
