Best Practices

  • Unsubscribe Link
    Copy the Unsubscribe link and paste it into your code. An unsubscribe link is required in all email campaigns.
  • Set Email width to 600px or less.
    Most people view their messages through preview panes, which are typically narrow and small.
  • Webmail services strip certain elements.
    Browser-based email services like Gmail, Yahoo, and Hotmail strip out your DOCTYPE, HEAD, and BODY tags so your code doesn’t cause issues with theirs. All the normal content you can code inside the tags is removed. Use inline CSS and FONT tags.
  • Think ahead for spam filters.

  • Test how it renders.
    The editor includes a preview button but as all email programs render HTML differently, it’s best to test your email on as many different email platforms as possible.
