Changing html files will mean you have to delve into the HTML code and edit certain lines. We have tried to keep it as simple as possible but if you are having trouble you might want to consult an expert.
Replace the logo link and file path with your own
The first thing to change is the logo and the corresponding link to your website. Scroll down until you find the section marked with
Logo Goes Here. In this area you need to replace two lines of code, the link to your company website and the image address of your company logo. Simply replace the dummy content with your own specific domain paths as marked in the file (If you do not wish to include your logo you can simply delete this entire section of code).
Sending the email via Mailchimp
Now you have your completed HTML template, the code can be pasted into an email marketing platform such as Mailchimp and edited from there. You can also send HTML emails via Outlook.
Sending the email via Outlook
When creating a ‘New’ email, open the ‘attach file’ window. Select the HTML file you have just edited but do not click ‘Insert’ straight away. Instead select ‘Insert As Text’ from the button drop down button and then click. Then hey presto! A beautiful Christmas Gif ready to send. You can now make changes to the text, if you haven’t already, by over typing the dummy content.
