Newsletter builder

How to create, edit and send email newsletters
Tilda has built its own editor for creating email campaigns that can be sent to recipients directly from Tilda. All you need to do is connect it to your account in MailChimp or SendGrid. First up, create a newsletter, then copy the html code and use it in any mail service.
How to create a newsletter
Go to 'My Project' and click on 'New e-mail campaign'.
A new project will be set up, and you will be able to create and send newsletters from it. A project is different from a regular website. It has different settings and uses another block library. Also, a separate domain or a subdomain can be connected to this project.
With one account (both on Personal and Business plans) you can create one mail shot containing 500 emails.
Click on 'Create new e-mail'.
Select a template. A template is an example of good design. It shows how to use building blocks. Using a template does not limit your creativity – you can change it in any way you want or even start from scratch.
Editing your newsletter
To make changes to a text, click on the text and either type over it or paste your own.
To change an image, click on it and upload your own image.

Drag the image from a folder on your computer, upload a link to it or copy and paste it (Ctrl+c / Ctrl+v).
Upload the link to the button via 'Content'.
To change the appearance of your content within a block or to change the block itself, click on 'Settings'. Use website settings to change text typography (font size, line spacing, colour), style of buttons, block background colour, indents and colour for the container.
What's a container?
With newsletters, there is a container in each block. It can also be described as a module with a fixed width of 600px where the content is located.
You can change the background for the entire newsletter in page settings. Change its colour or upload an image.
Blocks can be interchanged, copied, moved, hidden and deleted.
To add a new block, open the block library (click on a 'plus' between buttons or the 'all blocks' button in the bottom of the page) and choose the one you like.
Testing your newsletter
Before sending your email newsletter to subscribers, you can preview what it will look like in a mail client and browser.

Click on 'Publish'.
Enter an address and send a test email.
To view the letter in your browser, go to 'Link to email' and click on the link.
Sending your newsletter to subscribers
Use MailChimp or SendGrid to send newsletters from Tilda.
MailChimp
Click on 'Publish' > 'Send campaign'
Select MailChimp.
Enter your MailChimp username and password details.
The service is now connected. Next, prepare your newsletter for sending. Fill in the blanks: sender, recipient and so on.
Fill in the following information:
— Create new campaign (the campaign will be created in your MailChimp account) or select an existing campaign.
— Give the newsletter a title. It will feature in newsletters your subscribers will receive.
— Choose your contacts list (create it beforehand in MailChimp).
— Specify the sender. The sender's name will appear in the 'From' field in the letters your subscribers will receive.
— Specify the Reply to email address. Should your subscriber decide to hit 'Reply', their email will arrive at this address.
— Give your campaign a name. The title of the campaign by default coincides with the subject of the newsletter. Only you, and not your subscribers, will see the campaign title.

Click on 'Next'. The campaign will be created and saved as a draft in your MailChimp account but not sent.
For your next step, you will be able to send a test email, schedule the campaign (set the time for the newsletter to go out) or start the campaign straight away.
SendGrid
Click on 'Publish' > 'Send campaign'
Choose SendGrid.
Enter the API Key that you should copy from your account in SendGrid. Save it.

Receiving the html code for an email newsletter service
Click on 'Publish', go to 'Email HTML-code', then click on 'Copy code'.
Go to your email marketing service, choose 'Import the html code'.

Each email marketing service has this function.
Creating a home page and newsfeed
Create a home page and turn the mailings into a full-fledged website with a digest of published materials. It will also feature a subscription form and a list of published newsletters.

Go to Test Campaign page settings > On Home page, click 'Create index home page'.
You can add any block from our library to your home page.
If you do not wish for a certain newsletter to be featured on your home page, simply choose 'Don't show in auto grid' in Page settings for this particular newsletter.
You can create a memorable custom domain both for the home page or a newsletter. This is, of course, optional.
To set address for the home page, go to the project settings. You can connect a separate domain (mynewsletter.com), a subdomain (news.mysite.com) or use Tilda's subdomain (mynews.tilda.ws).

Create your custom domain in Site settings.
If you would like to display newsletters with images on your main page, upload the photo using the the Badge tab in Page settings.
When the newsletter is published, you receive a link to the page. Share this page in social networks or add the link to your blog or newsfeed. These updates have a positive influence on your SEO.
Online, each newsletter receives a 'header' with the newsletter title and a link to the subscription form, as well as a 'footer' with a subscription form and a link to the latest issues of the newsletter.
Paying for this service
Until 01 September 2017, our Newsletter builder is available to Personal and Business plan owners without any additional charges. We will decide at a later date whether any charges will be introduced in the future.
