Email Text Widget

The Text widget helps you add text (including special characters and emoticons) to your Email campaigns and format it as per your design needs.

How to use a Text Widget in an Email campaign?

Step 1

Use the main menu on the left to create an Email and subsequently navigate to our Email Creator.

Step 2

Add a Text widget to your Email

The blank area on the left is the Work area where you design your Email; and the area on the right is the Tools area where all the available design elements are displayed as Widgets.

In order to add text to your Email, drag and drop the Text widget to the work area (as highlighted in the screenshot below).
