How do I create custom emails in Campaign Monitor?

I've created a video outlining how to create a custom email in campaign monitor using a custom design.  Campaign monitor has great templates but if you want a custom high quality feel this is another option.  It's a little bit more design intensive but it really makes for a beautiful experience.  We have extremely high click through rates because of this method of email marketing.  

Here's the video describing the process. I recorded it at double speed to condense all the information in under 15 minutes so I sound a little funny.  It's not the best example of a high quality design but the process is the most important part.

 

Here's an example of the HTML code you'll need to create the email.  That's half the battle is wirting the code.  Once you have an HTML version it makes it a lot easier to modify.  Feel free to copy and paste as a layout for your next custom designed email.

Hope this helps.  We don't reccommend to sending custom emails like this every week, because it's very time consuming however it is a good start to figure out an optimal template to use when you decided to create a custom template.  We create custom responsive email templates using Umbraco CMS devlopment and Zurb.  If you're interested in generating more leads via email marketing, employ our Email Marketing Ninjas!  Here's a recent testimonial from one clients who specialize in Cle Elum Real Estate, Cle Elum Cabins For Sale, and Cle Elum Land Development (<---See what i did there...SEO nerds rule)

"The EDM's are working well; we are getting registrations on the web, and via email. Furthermore we sold another house last night. We had approximately 37 new leads register, call or email in January, compared to 1 last January. Or, a more reasonable comparison, is about 120 last year, or 10 per month average.... The quality of lead is better, their urgency is better, and their capabilities are better. And good news, those that have been onsite, are really excited and responding well. Thank you Bonsa!"  --Sean Northrup  Sapphire Skies Land Development Company

At half-past eight the door opened, the policeman appeared, and, requesting them to follow him, led the way to an adjoining hall. It was evidently a court-room, and a crowd of Europeans and natives already occupied the rear of the apartment.
