In the fourth episode of The Email Design Podcast, hosts Kevin Mandeville and Jason Rodriguez discuss a whole lot of Gmail, the future of Android email clients, a cool new app from MailChimp, and take a look back at their test episode.
Over the past year, Gmail has undergone some major changes—including quick actions, image caching, the auto-unsubscribe, and more—all of which have put the email world in a tizzy. Earlier this week, Google released yet another change (and perhaps the biggest one yet). They launched an entirely new email app, Inbox by Gmail. In this post, we’ll take a look at Inbox’s functionalities, as well as this new email app’s effect on the email marketing world.
We’ve been busy lately! Not only have we launched the first code editor built for email designers by email designers (hello, Litmus Builder), we’ve also added some amazing members to our team. We’re thrilled to introduce Julia, Brian, and Jenn—the newest additions to the Litmus family.
We are thrilled to have launched Litmus Builder—the first code editor built for email designers by email designers. With Builder you can easily create, test, and share your emails. To showcase Builder in all of its glory, we hosted two webinars to cover its features and functionalities. Didn’t have a chance to attend? Don’t worry! You can check out our recording and answers to frequently asked questions about Builder.
PutsMail is a simple tool that lets you paste in HTML and send an email. Simple as that sounds, it can be quite tricky to deliver the template or email you’re working on—even to your own inbox. Logging into your mailing service or ESP will do it, but there are often many steps involved. PutsMail reduces that workflow to a single click. We’re excited to relaunch PutsMail with a fresh, Litmus-inspired design.
Email clients constantly make updates that affect how emails are displayed. Recently, Yahoo Mail made one such update and left designers in the dark. Here’s the lowdown on exactly what changed and how to fix it.
We all know that email preview testing is important. But there are a lot of different ways to test your email throughout the development process. We take a look at five ways to get the most out of email testing for everyone in the design and development chain.
A little over a year ago, Jordan, one of our senior developers, and Alan, our lead designer, launched a hack week project called Litmus Builder. The tool was a hit and we received lots of positive feedback from the email community. As our email designer, I was a big advocate of the product and loved to use it when creating Litmus’ emails. Together, all three of us wanted to expand on the initial project and build a more robust version of the tool. And, together—along with the help of over a hundred of the world’s best email designers—we did just that. Today, we are thrilled to introduce the world’s first code editor built for email designers by email designers: Litmus Builder.
Between The Email Design Conference 2014 being sold out, budget constraints, and busy summer schedules, many were unable to join us at TEDC14. But, don’t worry—we recorded every single session! You can watch all of the amazing content—including slides—from the comfort of your own home (or office).
