We've made it easier than ever to format your emails.
With our default content feature, you can add boilerplate content to your email templates to make writing emails a simpler task in your future.
This means that you don’t need to duplicate an old broadcast to make a similar one — you can just add the content to your template!
When you create a broadcast or sequence using default content, it’ll start with the default content you've set. From there, you can tweak any text, images, and links, to fit the body of the email.
Why use default content?
Default content is perfect if you use the same formatting for your emails on a regular basis.
For example, if you run a newsletter where you share a round-up of resources each week, now you can add your headings directly into your email template. Here's what that might look like:
How to set up your default content:
In the template editor, you'll be able to enter your default content between the tags that say “Start of default content” and “End of default content”.
Once you've added your default content, your email template might look something like this:
Be sure to click the “Save” button to save your template changes.
Now it's time to create the content for your email (either a broadcast or a sequence).
In your email settings, you can choose the email template you've added the default content to.
If you're creating a broadcast, you'll find your template on the right hand side of the email editor.
If you're creating a sequence, you'll find your template by clicking on the Settings tab.
In the body of your email, you should now see your default content. From there, you can be add your email content around the default content:
There you have it! Your default content is set up and email formatting should feel a lot easier.
Note: Changing the default content for a template won’t affect any of your existing emails using that template. It only affects any new emails moving forward.
