We’re working hard to keep you happy with changes to the simple email builder!
We know you’ve been wondering what goes on behind the scenes here at Boutique Window. Besides working hard to ensure you’re satisfied with the service, plus keeping up with the latest trends in social media, we’ve been hard at work developing new platform enhancements.
We’re excited to announce that we’ve recently rolled out changes in the Email Builder. This is great news for our Pro users who have connected their Constant Contact and MailChimp accounts! If you’re interested in upgrading your account and adding email functionality – give us a call at 913.378.1894 or send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Now, let’s talk about all these awesome updates:
First, we’ve updated the look of the footer within the email builder.
You’ll notice that the social icons have increased in size and changed in color. Why? Well, it’s because we know how important social networking is and we want your email recipients to easily find and follow you online! A few additional changes include the addition of a Google map icon for users who have a brick-and-mortar location, as well as the option to include a phone number and store hours.
Second, you may now add hyperlinks to an image or photo collage within your email template.
We recommend adding a link to your Boutique Window site, eCommerce site, Facebook page or really, anywhere you’d like to direct your shoppers! Readers can click on the image and be automatically redirected to any website you include in the hyperlink field. Plus, we want to stress the importance of connecting the dots for shoppers – give them a place to learn, read or shop more!
Third, four our MailChimp users, we’ve added the option to send a test email.
This new feature gives users the chance to view the email before sending.
And lastly, you may now access segmented MailChimp lists within Boutique Window!
See how this works in our recent Boutique Window video tutorial: Sending/Scheduling Emails Using the MailChimp Integration.
