How do I create a marketing email template?
Note: The Marketing Email feature is included as part of the Cloze Business Platinum Plan.
Use Cloze marketing email to share updates with your clients, promote events, send newsletters, and more. Each email created in the marketing email editor uses a responsive design that works on both mobile and desktop.
Before you create a new marketing email template we recommend you set up the:
If you are part of a team, these items will be configured by your team leader or an administrator.
The brand header, brand footer, and legal terms footer are examples of embeddable Building Blocks—templates that you can embed in other templates. When you create a new marketing email you can use these building blocks to build your email.
You can create additional Building Blocks to make assembling future email templates easy. Anytime you find yourself creating a section that will be useful in another email in the future we recommend creating a separate embeddable template to use as a building block.
Sections and content blocks can be rearranged with our drag and drop editor.
Create a new marketing email template in the Library
You can create marketing email templates in the Cloze Library.
1.) Tap on More (...) in the lower right of your screen on mobile (iOS/Android) and lower left on cloze.com.
2.) Tap on Template Library.
3.) Tap on the New Template icon and select Marketing Email.
4.) Select any of the existing templates as a starting point. Cloze includes some templates like "Newsletter - Brand" or "Simple - Personal" to get you started.
When you start with an existing template Cloze includes the building blocks from the previously created template to make it easy for you to get started with your new template. For example, the "Newsletter - Brand" template includes the:
- Brand Header
- Personal Footer
- Brand Footer
- Legal Terms Footer
If you want to start from scratch you can select the "Blank (empty)" template.
5.) Set the name and category of your template.
When setting a category you can select from existing categories you have previously created or create a new category.
6.) Design the template.
You can add as many sections as needed to complete your design. Once you add a section you can then add content to it.
Add a new section
Tap on the plus icon in the section divider to add a new section. Scroll down to view other layouts, sections, and blocks.
Add content to a section
Within a section, you can easily add content to the existing layout. For example, if you have a full-width section tap on the + icon to add content. If you need a new layout, you can add another section.
7.) Save your template.
Only Admins or other team members with the appropriate permission
If you are the Cloze Admin for your team (or have the appropriate permissions) you'll also have an option to save a template to a Staging Library or your team's shared Library. Members of your team with the appropriate role permission can access and review templates in the staging and team Library.
Published templates can be placed in three different types of Libraries:
- My Library - is your personal library (only you can see templates in this library)
- Your team library (Staging) - staging is only visible to people with permission to see it
- Your team library - visible to everyone on your team
