Emails can contain four different elements: Rich text, Images, Snippets, and Video. Here’s how to edit each.
Find your email, select it and click Edit Draft.
The email editor will open. Select the Rich text, click the gear icon and select Edit.
You can also hover over the element in the right-hand pane, causing the gear icon to appear.
Add/Edit your text and press Save.
You can also add images, tokens, tables and other elements. See Using the Rich Text Editor.
Avoid copying and pasting text from a rich text source, such as a website or a Word document. Instead, paste rich text into a plain text editor first, such as Notepad (Windows) or TextEdit (Mac). Once it’s “clean,” you can then copy it from the plain text editor and paste it into your email.
Click inside the module with the Image element to select it.
Click the Image element you want to edit, then click the gear icon and select Edit.
You can also double-click on the element to begin editing.
The image editor displays.
You have three options for inserting an image. Let’s look at each.
If you want to use a Marketo token, use this option. Keep in mind that when you use a token, the image will appear broken in the editor, but will render in Preview mode and the Send Sample email.
To use an external URL, paste in the image’s URL first. Alter the dimensions to suit your needs, and add some Alt Text (optional). Then press Swap.
To upload an image from your computer, click Browse.
Navigate to where the image is on your computer and insert it.
Alter the dimensions to suit your needs, change the Alt Text (optional), then press Swap.
If you’re replacing an image, you’ll need to check the Overwrite existing image box that appears below the Image URL/name.
To insert an image from the Design Studio, simply locate it…
…and insert it. Alter the dimensions to suit your needs, change the Alt Text (optional), then press Swap.
Click inside the module with the Snippet element.
Click the Snippet element, then the gear icon and select Edit.
Find your snippet, select it, and click Save.
Your snippet then populates.
Click inside the module with the Video element.
Click the Video element, then the gear icon and select Edit.
Paste in the video URL from Vimeo or YouTube. Then click out of the URL box for the preview to load. Alter the dimensions to suit your needs, add Alt Text (optional), then press Insert.
For YouTube videos use the full URL from the address bar, not the shortcut URL found in the Share option.
Have fun designing the perfect email!
