Not every email marketer codes their own emails. But sometimes there's just one little thing that needs to be changed– it can't be that hard to do it yourself, can it?
You're right. It's not that hard.
Making small changes to your html is very easy, and consists of three steps:
- Identify an element
- Find that element's code
- Change that element
The example below will cover adding a new image to an email. To add a new image we are going to copy the "Update Your Profile" button, and change the image.
1. First, open a new html template and paste your code into our html editor.
2. Use right click to "copy image address" on the element you want to copy or change. In this case we are going to copy the "Update Your Profile" button, and change the image. To find a text element, skip to step 3.
3. Use ⌘ + f (or crtl+f on windows) to find the image url in the code. (You may want to copy your code into another text editor, such as Sublime Text)
4. Copy the element code around the image and place a second copy below the first. It is important to copy the full html element as this contains additional formatting and hyperlink information.
Notice the duplicate element code and duplicate "Update Your Profile" button"
5. Use ⌘+f again to find the image url inside the copied element.
6. Now replace it with the new image URL. Voila!
