Video Email Composer: 3 Top Features

Every email and video email that’s made and sent from the Composer is automatically mobile responsive.

More than half of email opens happen on a mobile device, so that’s very helpful!


2. Drag and drop.

Want a new space for a video? Drag and drop it into your layout.
Want that picture to go into that media space? Drag and drop it!
Want a space to type in some text? Drag and drop it where you want it to go!
Want to change the size of an image or a video? Drag it to the size you want.


3. Easy design options.

It’s easy to drag and drop layout elements into your email.

It’s even easier to set your design options down the left column. Choose the colors and sizes for all the different aspects of your email in one panel.

And save it as a theme to use again!

3. Drag from desktop.

Want a video, photo, image, logo, graphic, or chart in your email or video email?

Drag and drop it from your desktop or from a folder straight into the layout!

If it’s a video, dragging it into the video email will upload it, process it, and encode it. You’ll be left with the animated preview right there in your design.

4. Multi element rows.

As you’re dragging in new text boxes, media boxes, call to action buttons, social icons, and other layout elements, drag them into an existing row.

The other row elements will scoot over and make room for your new element … automatically.

5. Save as a Quick Send template.

Your default Quick Send and mobile design is incredibly useful. These are two of the fastest and easiest ways to get face to face with people.

But you want an email design with your look and feel.

Make it in the upgraded Composer, then “Save As Quick Send!”

Video Email Composer: 1 Key Thing

With the release of this upgraded Composer, the Classic Editor will no longer be available for new emails. Every time you click “New Email” in the “Emails” tab, you’ll be working in this new, upgraded Composer.

The Editor is inferior in every way to the Composer and its primary point of differentiation is being added to the Composer … the ability to see the HTML source code behind the email. See the “Show Source” link in the lower right.

Emails originally created in the Classic Editor will still open in that editing tool when you click “Edit.”
