New drag and drop email builder

06 Feb Say hello to the new Drag & Drop Email Editor!

If you’ve been keeping up with us as of late, then you already know about our new web form builder and new dashboard overview releases.

Now that we got those out of the way, we’re here to add another addition to the list of 2015 feature releases: the brand new drag & drop email editor!

Many of you may already be familiar with blogging and email platforms that use drag & drop editors for design purposes. Regardless of whether you’ve used this kind of editor before or not, we can assure you that it spells one thing clearly: EASE OF USE!

In short, our new drag & drop email editor is going to save you:

  • time
  • money
  • headaches

 *HTML coders fear not, we’ll now have two email editors: our HTML editor and our Drag & Drop editor.

Features of the Drag & Drop Email Editor:

Design freedom

Regardless of whether you’re a skilled HTML email designer or simply a beginner that needs to create beautiful emails in a relatively short amount of time, now you have the freedom of choice. After clicking “Add new” you will be presented with the following options:

Add new email

After giving your email a name, start from scratch or get a head start utilizing the two email templates we’ve provided.

From scratch or templates

Simplest way to design a campaign

 

editing your emails with the drag and drop editor

Drag and drop your content, so that your words and images are exactly where you’d like them to be. Easily rearrange your blocks and continue tweaking your email design as you see fit.

Save content; save time

 

complex elements of the drag and drop editor

Chances are that you’re going to find yourself developing some sort of theme surrounding the emails you’re creating and sending.

Taking this into consideration, we now offer you the ability to save unique email elements for future use.

This feature is great for the components that require some added design attention; it allows you to easily grab that element or particular section of the email structure and add it from your saved elements the next time you’re creating an email from scratch or updating a duplicate.

Mobile responsive by default

 Mobile responsive emails by default

By default, the elements within your newly created emails are going to re-arrange themselves to render beautifully across mobile devices. Columns, for example, will re-arrange to appear stacked on top of one another in an effort to keep your text as readable as possible.

In this first version of the drag & drop email editor you cannot preview in mobile, but soon we will allow you to preview your email on a mobile phone, tablet or desktop with the click of a button from directly within the email editor.

In the rare cases where certain column sets don’t render nicely in mobile, you can opt to hide the whole set with a single click.

Fluid CTA buttons

 

Fluid CTA buttons

 

 Aside from giving you great features and freedom to enhance the CTA (call-to-action) buttons designed for your emails, all of your CTA buttons will automatically fill the entire screens of mobile devices horizontally; this is what the term “fluid” refers to.

This nifty little feature ensures that your viewers, regardless of the size of their mobile screens, can easily tap their way to your offer or desired next-step.

& Much more to come…
