Amazing New Responsive Page & Email Template Editor!
We’ve developed some spectacular new tools in the Editor that will help you build better responsive page & email templates more quickly, modify templates with changes and let you design with more creativity and freedom than ever. Since debuting our Responsive Template Blocks approach to building mobile friendly page & email templates a few months ago, we’ve seen an explosion of use of our editor to build mobile ready campaigns. We’ve accumulated ideas from our users, the Boingnet Labs and industry experts on how to make these Responsive Template Blocks even better, and we’re proud to have built out many of these ideas in this release:
How many times have you started a Boingnet template using our point & click template editor, picked a structure or format for your page or email, and then wanted to insert a new block into the template when you are partially done building? We now make it a snap with our Template Blocks feature in the left hand menu of the Template Editor.
After you start your edit – you often think of a new way to structure the content and you’d like to quickly make a change to see how it looks. Now, all you need to do to Move a Responsive Template Block is click on the block, grab the “Move” icon and drag the block to a different part of the template!
Resizing a block is a snap. Just click on the block, click on the “Resize” icon and grab the lower right corner red button and drag the size of the block to whatever size your heart desires!
We’ve built you a fabulous Color Picker that you can tap into throughout the template editor. Whether you want to change the color of a template block that you are working on or modifying the color of a Call to Action Button – just click on the color picker to scroll through all the colors of the rainbow, or just type/paste in the color number that you’re looking for. You’ll see it appear before your eyes! Speaking of Call to Action Buttons…..
We’ve made the creation of powerful Call To Action buttons a snap with our new Call To Action Button Builder. Choose your text, size it, style it, choose gradient colors and embed a URL or pURL and you’re off to the races! Getting the right Call to Action Button is so important in determining the success of your landing page. Now you have a great tool to build custom looking buttons without having to jump into the HTML editor.
As you build out more content in your Boingnet account, you need better tools to find exactly what you need to view, edit or delete quickly. Our new Listing Format that debuted a few months ago in Lists has now been moved to all Boingnet Listings. We’ve added a sortable column called “Last Update Date” and made it the default listing order, so what you worked on last is at the top of every list. You can now sort on column headings and search for every template, microsite and campaign that exists in your Boingnet account.
We’re working hard to help YOU build better campaigns!
As you can see, this release is jammed with tons of great new features that will make you a more productive, faster and better builder of Boingnet campaigns. We’ve been working on hard this new list of features that we know you’ll love. If you ever have any ideas you’d like to share, just email us at email@example.com to share your thoughts.
