August Template refresh sweepstakes - Win an iPad mini

Show off your new email template design made with our new editor for a chance to win an iPad mini! We’re giving away a free iPad mini to three (3) lucky customers who enters the sweepstakes by 9/1/17.

 

Simply customize a new template and post it in this thread along with an example of a previous email template created using our old, second generation editor to show off all the improvements you’ve made. If you’ve already created an email using the third-generation editor, you can use that in place of a new template and post it along with an old template that was created using the second generation editor.

 

Follow these steps to enter the sweepstakes:

(If you’d like to use an email you’ve already created with our new editor, skip to step 5)

  1. Click the “Create” button on the home dashboard or the Campaigns page
  2. Select “Email”, and choose a new template to start from.
  3. Customize the new template using our new editor to match your brand and add any content that you’d like
  4. Send it to at least 1 contact (can be sent to yourself on a test list) to get the “short URL” to post in this thread
  5. Locate the “short URL” on the Campaigns page and copy and paste it into a reply in this Community thread along with the “short URL” of your previous email template that was created with our old editor to show off all the improvements that you’ve made.

 The winners will be selected during the week of 9/4/17. All entries must be made by 9/1/17 11:59:59 ET. See our terms and conditions for full details.

Here is two examples of our company emails that were created in both versions.

 

This is a Client grillout invitation that was created with the new template.

This is a weekly email we have been sending out every Monday for the past year with the old template.
