#3: How to Create a HTML Email   —   Testing (3 of 3)

This is part 3 of a 3 part series on how to create a HTML email. This is based on the email template I released a few weeks ago, Here. This is my first ever screencast series so any kind of feedback would be great. In Part 3 I’ll show you how to test and send out the template using Litmus and Campaign Monitor.

    You uploaded your html file as part of creating a campaign but is it possible to upload it directly to templates? I am not familiar with campaign monitor but I tried to upload html to mail chimp, this worked fine as an upload to a campaign but when I tried to save it as a template it became corrupted. apparently I had to add certain code so that mail chimp would identify it. Can you explain this code, is it unique to the email marketing provider and is this the way it works in campaign monitor?

    Also when you come to add merge tags are these the same on all email marketing providers, (sorry probably a silly questions)

    Great Tuts mate! Came in realllly handy! There is a surprisingly limited amount of content with regards to email marketing/newsletter on the net.

    Keep up the good work! 😉

    Hi Mohammad:

    I enjoyed the 1st part very much, but I got totally lost with the coding in part 2.
    Speech is very blurred in part 3. But as you said, you are new to this. I am sure you will get better.

    Hi, I also had a difficult time hearing part 3, but I think I figured it out. Every time someone has sent me an email with a nice template I wanted to create one myself but I didn’t know how. Your tutorial really helped. Thank you so much.
