Using the Read More Block


Hello Constant Contact Community!


We're constantly working on making improvements to our product and I'd like to introduce the new Read More block available in the 3rd generation editor. This is a great tool to use when you want to share some outside web content but don't want it to take up a large area of your campaign. We found that emails containing about 20 lines of text have the most click-through rates so you want to make sure that your space is utilized well!


Here, I will walk you through how to use this great new feature:


  1. Click on the More button under your Build element (Your element may look different)

  2. Click and drag to place the Read More block into your campaign

  3. Click inside the layout, and click Edit

  4. Paste the URL for the site that you want to share with your contacts (Note: the site must contain an image). From here, you can select a picture that best fits by using the arrows in the top left corner of the picture. Then, click Insert.

  5. Now it's time to position your new Read More block. You can have it display in your campaign as a single block or create a column using the other Build elements. I used the Image, Text and Button blocks to create the right side of the column.  


If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask! Feel free to let us know how you'll be using this new block.
