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.
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.
While your email service provider’s click data may help you determine which articles and calls-to-action resonate best with your audience, and their open data can enable you to make inferences about which subject lines work best, Email Analytics data can help you take things to the next level. Let’s talk about some ways to take this data and use it to improve your campaigns.
Apple launched the long-awaited iPhone 6 and 6 Plus–but what does that mean for you? Both devices featured larger screens that have many email designers worried. Just how will these big screens affect your campaigns? Read on to find out.
Our users put their emails and trust in our hands—which is a big deal to us! Not only do we want to provide accurate, actual screenshots (not emulations!), but we want to do it quickly and reliably. As a result, we’re constantly looking for new ways to make our solutions faster and more dependable. Since we’re frequently asked about how Litmus works behind the scenes, we thought we’d give you a peek behind the curtain.
Along with opening up the Litmus Community to absolutely everyone, we made a number of updates to make the Community a joy to use. Finding and reading content is now easier than ever, and now there are even more ways to participate in the Community.
A while back, we launched the Litmus Community—a place for email designers and marketers to connect, share information, and troubleshoot problems. Initially, the Community was only open to Litmus customers. In the spirit of open sharing and growing the email design community, we’re now opening up the Litmus Community to everyone!
Recently, a serious bug was uncovered in an open source library responsible for securing communications on the Internet. This vulnerability is colloquially referred to as “Heartbleed” and you’ve probably been hearing about it from various services you use online. The good news is that customers using Litmus were not affected!
Email design is hard. Finding ways to connect with other designers and learn more about email has, until recently, been even harder. Today, we are excited to announce the launch of the Litmus Community—a place for email marketers to connect, learn, and discuss all things email.
With nearly 50% of emails opened on mobile devices, it’s important to keep small screens in mind. We offer plenty of mobile optimization tips, inspiration and resources on the Litmus blog—and starting today, we’re also offering 7 pre-tested and bulletproof responsive templates for your next campaign.
