Today GetResponse is making a huge leap forward in email design. Forget creating separate email versions for desktop and mobile, forget coding or paying extra for mobile versions of your newsletters. From now on, every email you create in GetResponse will look good both on desktop and mobile, and all you have to do is put the pieces together in Email Creator, just as you’ve been doing all along. Here’s how it works:
Sure, we’ve had one-column email templates before, (which, however, remained one-column both for desktop and mobile devices). But this is so much more than that. Today, you can build any email design or use any email template inside GetResponse, with as many columns as you like (well, within reason, of course ;)) and it will turn into one column on a mobile phone, with a neat layout and large, clear images. No horizontal scrolling to see the whole newsletter or zooming in to read the text or click a link.
All templates are now responsive
No matter whether you choose one of the pre-designed templates or start building your newsletter from scratch, all your emails will be mobile-ready and will display as one column on most of the available mobile phones (with the latest versions of Android or iOS systems).
And that’s without any extra work required from you. It just works.
Mobile Preview in Email Creator
And to see that it works, simply turn on the real-time Mobile Preview now visible inside Email Creator. Go ahead and play with elements, add columns or rows, and see how Email Creator instantly adjusts them for mobile display.
And that’s both horizontally and vertically.
But instead of me describing how it works, see it for yourself:
First solution of this kind
We’re really proud of the new Responsive Email design inside GetResponse. Also because you won’t find it in any other email marketing platform (and, as I mentioned before, we’re not talking about just one-column designs.)
The difference is that instead of a constrained scheme that is fixed and which you can only fill with the desired content, we’ve used modules, which means you can play around with the elements, add as many as you want or change their position to whatever you like.
And as soon as you try it out, I’m sure you’ll see the huge difference. Go on now, try it!
How do you do that?
To create your first Responsive Email, simply go to your GetResponse account, create a new email inside Email Creator and turn on Mobile Preview to see the results. And… well, that’s basically it.
Oh, right, don’t forget to send it.
What will your first responsive newsletter look like?
