Hi there, wonderful Constant Contact community! I would truly appreciate some feedback on my campaign and I will return the favor where needed. Please be honest... True critisism is the best way for myself to learn.
Thank you so much in advance!
I would recommend switching to the new editor if you haven't already. Also, you may want to get a handle on the number of colors you use, and possibly switch to a one-column format. There is a lot going on here - if you'd like a more thorough discussion of how to improve this, please reach out. It looks like you're doing some cool things in Oakland! Peace,
Albert has given you a lot of great information and he's right on all counts! We recommend limiting your colors to your branding so that they're an enhancement rather than the focus of your campaign. In addition, here are some specific suggestions for making it more mobile friendly:
Mobile devices, like smartphones and tablets, are an increasingly popular way to view emails and the experience is different than viewing them on a traditional computer. If you've been copying the same template for awhile, it's recommended to create a new email using our new 3GE editor since all of those templates are mobile-responsive.
Mobile-responsive templates use technology to adapt and format your email’s layout, based on the size of the screen it’s being displayed on. For example, a mobile-responsive email may have an image with text to the right of it. When someone views this template on a mobile device the text and image may appear stacked (image on top, text on bottom) so that it is easier for the end user to read.
When designing for a mobile device, keep in mind that different email clients and devices have different ways of displaying email content. It's a good idea to send yourself a test email and open it on your own smartphone or tablet to get a good idea of how your contacts will experience it.
I hope this helps. Please let us know if there is anything else we can do for you. Thank you for choosing Constant Contact.
