Here is a quick way to design an attractive and easily manageable affiliate email list using the new drag and drop editor:

Set up

  • Then create a Regular Campaign and name it something you will remember
  • Then create a New List (Figure: A). The list name is just for you. The Default From Name is very important. It should be something recognizable like “CAP Affiliate Jared Bates”. The Default Subject is the most important as it is your Email’s headline.
  • Click the next step which is the design phase

Design your Winning Email Fast with the new Drag and Drop Editor:

  • The title should have your call to action in it, in this case its “play!”
  • Put a Contextual affiliate link next. Some people will only click on relevant text words and shy away from graphics
  • Your next line is your trust line. You want something that speaks to the honesty and integrity of your operation. Not just why it is the best
  • Now for more graphic pop! Put a nice small banner by dragging it from wherever and dropping it in the text edit field
  • Drag the social network tab icon from the right and put it in the bottom left space.
