How to compose email using Drag and Drop Editor?

Last update: August 11, 2022

MailBluster has three types of email composers/editors:

1. HTML Editor

2. WYSIWYG Editor

3. Drag and Drop Editor

The most common and easy-to-use editor is the Drag and Drop Editor. Emails composed with this editor are responsive and do not require programming or coding knowledge.

Click to compose’ on the Drag and Drop Editor on the edit campaign page.  It will take you directly to the main editor page, where you can easily compose your email content. 

The following is the layout of the Drag and Drop Editor from the Campaigns:

The following is the layout of the main Drag and Drop editor after clicking compose: 

You have a Content tab with features like Columns, Button, Divider, Heading, HTML, Image, Menu, Social, Text, and Video

I hit my max on sending emails, will my campaign continue tomorrow automatically?

I’m afraid no. After reaching the maximum sending limit, your campaign will be failed. In this case, you can use A/B testing slices to split your lead list into two or more segments. And schedule a separate campaign for each of the slices.
