You know that the success of your email marketing campaign can be determined equally by what you send as it is by how you send it. Because of this, our EZ Template Editor offers publishers vast capabilities when it comes to customizing their email templates. Changing colors, fonts, layout of the content, social icons, social channels, all can be easily edited with a few clicks.

The Advanced Template Editor mimics the dashboard of many popular content management systems. Below editing buttons, you will see the rich visual text editor with your FeedBlitz Template Tags. Should you prefer to work with HTML, you can do so by selecting the Source button in the upper left corner of the editor.

If using multiple mailing lists or Autoresponders and you would like for them all to use the same template, simply check the box at the top of the editor…
