How to Create a Reusable Email Template [Discussion]

Moderator

You know the feeling.

 

It’s the day before your email newsletter goes out, and once again you’re just sitting there, staring at a blank template wondering where the heck to start.

 

Sound familiar? We've all been here. We recommend creating a reusable email template to save time and keep your brand consistent.

 

What tips and tricks do you have for saving time on creating an email template?

Hi @SaraT0667

 

That's a great question! I can definitely understand how helpful it would be to make your custom code email a reusable template. I apologize there is not currently a tool to save a previously sent email as a template. We do however suggest making a copy of a previously sent email instead. If you copy your older custom coded campaign it will keep the same coding that you can then update for your newest email.

Thanks for sharing! This is much easier to use from the layout and design perspectives.

Hi @GaryO580 

 

The good news is your templates are all saved and are available under the campaigns tab of your account.

So if you were to personalize one of the templates we provide, this is where you'll be able to find it. we have even seen customers places these reusable templates in a campaign folder to help make finding them a little easier. I hope this helps!
