PDF only as the entire email campaign

Is it advisable to use just a PDF file to be your email campaign? Or will the PDF be treated as image only too?

Hello @BethB442 ,

 

Our system only creates an image of the first page of a PDF by default, since PDFs cannot be embedded in emails. Please also keep in mind that any links in the PDF won't translate over to the image conversion, as that's just how images work. When you do the PDF to email conversion when creating an email, we provide a section for text and a button that links to your uploaded PDF by default. It's advisable to include some text of your own and to leave that button link in, since image-only emails tend to be treated more harshly by spam filters.
