Email Library – Adding Templates to Email Library

1. Feature Overview

Create reusable email templates for one-to-one emails and email campaigns on the Email Library page. You can view and edit these templates on the same page. You can also import any sample email templates you already have. The flow of the email template editor is the same as the email campaign editor.

Note:

 

2. Prerequisite

You must be the Administrator or the Marketing User of your account.

 

3. Add Email Templates

Navigate to Content>Email Library and click Add Email Template.  You can select the type of Email Template you want to add on the Add Email Template pop-up window.

  • Use Visual Designer – You can design your email template from scratch through this option. To know more about designing templates, see How to Design Emails in LeadSquared and Email Campaign Editor (BEE Editor).
  • Use Rich-Text Editor – You can create a template using LeadSquared’s standard rich-text editor. You can select this option to send simple messages with attached images and files.
  • Paste your HTML – You can use your own HTML template by pasting it in this section. To know more, see HTML Editor and Use your own Custom HTML to design Email Template.
  • Use Plain-Text Editor – You can draft simple messages with high deliverability through this option. However, you cannot add images or text formatting in this template.

Once you’re done designing your email template, you can save it as a draft by clicking on Save or publish it immediately by clicking on Save and Publish.

Note: 

  • Only published templates can be used in one-to-one emails and email campaigns.
  • The templates available in the editor you choose will depend on the editor you used to design your template. For example, HTML editor will only display the templates you created using the same editor.
  • You must upload the required images in Images and Documents to add them to your Email Templates.
  • You can personalize emails by including certain fields in the text like Lead First Name, Job Title, etc. To know more, see How to Personalize your Emails by Using Mail Merge Tags.
  • You can send test emails to different email addresses for review. To do so –
    • If you’ve chosen Use Visual Designer, click Test Content.
    • If you’ve chosen any of the other three options, enter the email addresses in the text box under Send Test Emails.
  • You can add unsubscribe, mailing preference, and view in browser link by adding the following code snippet before the end of the body tag –

Is there any condition for the images which we want to import?
I am unable to import and use images.

Hi, you cannot directly import images to your email templates. Instead, you must first upload them to your LeadSquared Image Library, and then use these images in your templates. To know how to do this, refer to Image and File Manager. Hope this helps!

Can you duplicate a template?

Hi, Michele. There’s no mechanism to duplicate a template. But you can reuse an existing template multiple times, across different email campaigns. Hope this helps!
