Newsletter Templates

Before sending a newsletter, create a newsletter template. You can create and save as many of these as required for any situation, whether it be an annual holiday newsletter or weekly product updates.

The example newsletter template uses separate templates for the header and footer, and converts external CSS into inline styles. To learn more, see: Managing Email Templates.


Example Newsletter Template

To create a newsletter template:

1. On the Admin menu, select Newsletter > Newsletter Templates. The page lists the available newsletter templates. You can edit an existing template or create a new one.
2. To add a new template, click the Add New Template button. Then, do the following:
a. In the Template Name field, specify a unique and indicative name for this template. This value is not visible for customers.
b. In the Template Subject field, specify the subject of the email to be sent to your customers.
c. In the Sender Name and Sender Email fields, specify the name and email of the sender of the email to be sent to your customers.
d. In the Template Content field, use the WYSIWYG editor to compose the body of the email. Note that this field is pre-filled with tags showing an unsubscribe link in the email. We recommend that you do not remove this link so that all emails that are sent enable your customers to unsubscribe from the newsletter.
e. Click Preview Template, to display the content with the formatting as it will be viewed by your subscribers.
3. When complete, click the Save Template button.

After the template has been saved, a Save As button appears whenever the template is opened in edit mode. This gives you the ability to make changes and save it as a new template, without affecting the original.
