New feature: new email editor and 36 new email layouts

Pardot’s WYSIWYG email editor just got a big upgrade! Not only that – we’re also rolling out 36 new email layouts to go along with it.

The new email editor is a huge improvement over the old WYSIWYG and will make it easier than ever for you to get those important newsletters and announcements out to your prospects and clients. The new email layouts have been developed to take full advantage of all the new advanced features of the editor, and are great examples of email design best practices for getting your emails to render correctly in every email client.

During my February new features webinar, I covered the new email editor and answered people’s questions. You can find my slides and a recording of that webinar attached at the bottom of this post.

To use the new email editor, follow the exact same steps as before to create or edit an email or email template. When you reach the content editing step, you will see a link to activate the new editor just above the old editor. We wanted to make sure that we didn’t force people to use the new editor until they were ready, and we’ll also be keeping the old editor available for a period of 4 weeks as people get up to speed with the new editor.

How have we improved the new editor? Just like you’d expect, the new editor is still a WYSIWYG-based editor, but we’ve gone to great lengths to improve the reliability and ease of use of many of the common tasks such as adding, removing, formatting, and styling your content. Getting your email to render in multiple email clients can sometimes be a chore – you don’t need a finicky editor getting in your way making it even harder!
