    Campaign Email Creation Step 3 / Content

    Embed images to email content
    You can tick this option if you wish to embed the images within your campaign, although this can increase the size of the email if there are many images within the email content.
    Content Type
    Select the content type - whether you are going to send an HTML email or Text. You can also send a multi-part email which will carry HTML as well TEXT based content and render it at the end-users end according to their email reader.
    Define the subject line for your campaign email.
    You can attach one or more files to the campaign email you are going to send.

    create camp 6

    The email content builder will help you add your own content within the available editable regions. The system has an advanced template engine which allows you to easily edit your content within the pre-defined campaign template. In order to edit the content you just have to place your mouse on the content box and click your left mouse key once - if the area is editable it will give you the "Edit" menu as shown in the screenshot below.

    create camp 7

    In the above screenshot we can see "Edit" as well "Duplicate" - this means the region we clicked on can be edited with custom content and you can also duplicate the block of text as well.

    When you click the edit button it will take you to the editor which can be seen in the screen shot below.

    create camp 8

    If you take a look at the screenshot you will see that the "Good News" title can be edited in the shown box. You can change it to anything you wish.

    Once your content is edited and/or populated you can hit the "Save" button to save the content and exit the content editing screen. Now click on the "Next" button to go to the final "Review" of your campaign email.

    create camp 9

    The last step of campaign email creation is the preview of your campaign's content. You can verify how it looks by sending an email to an email address or by viewing it in your browser.

    The review screen will also give you the details of the content analysis and basic Spam testing.

    create camp 10

    Once you have verified the preview and are satisfied with the campaign email content click on the "Next" button to go to the campaign scheduling screen.

    create camp 11

    Use the drop down menu "Send" to schedule the campaign

    There are four scheduling options available for every campaign

    1. Now
      If this option is selected the campaign will start sending immediately.

    2. On given date and time
      If you select this option then you will have to set the date and time for the campaign to start sending emails to your mailing lists.

    3. Repeatedly
      If this option is selected you will be allowed to set the time and date along with the repeat frequency of your campaign.

    4. Never
      If this option is selected then the campaign will be saved under the drafts folder and will never start.
