Do you need to send you catalogs via email, but you’re not sure how? Or maybe you just aren’t aware of your options? Today, we’re going to solve that issue and go over all the ways that you can send your catalogs via email.
How to send emails through Flipsnack
If you want to send your catalog to a single email address, it’s easy. First, go to My Flipbooks, then click on Share out to the right of your desired flipbook. Finally, select Email.
Now that you’re here, simply input the email you want to send it to, and click Send Send email.
A new window will pop up where you can input all the details for sharing your flipbook via email. You can customize anything from subject line, title, description, button label and footer description.
If you have a CSV and you are one of our Business or Enterprise users, you can also upload it here by clicking on Upload CSV where you input email addresses.
Important note: Keep in mind that for any email sharing options, your catalog will have to be published first.
How to share through Yahoo and Gmail
Sharing your catalog with multiple people is very easy with Flipsnack. Since Yahoo mail and Gmail do not support HTML, here’s a simple way to share your publication: All you need to do to kick things off is grab a simple screenshot of your catalog. This can be the front cover, or any other page you wish.
Next, put the image into a new email, and highlight it by holding down the click and dragging the image until it turns blue.
Once it's selected click on the link icon to add a link action to it.
Now, click on the image again and paste the link to your catalog instead.
Don’t forget to choose between the full-screen reader URL or the reader within Flipsnack.
How to send the catalog email using your own email provider
First, go to: My Flipbooks, choose the catalog you want and click on send email.
You will find the embed code in the left corner box. Right after the customization and personalization options. You can simply click the copy button to get the code.
- Via Thunderbird
First, compose a new email and go to Insert. Here choose HTML:
After that, enter the embed code from Flipsnack and click Insert.
You will automatically see the snippet in your email, a sign that your email is ready to be sent!
- via Mailchimp
First step is to Sign in or Sign up and start an email campaign.
After you add recipients and set up your email, you’re asked to select a template.
You can choose a template or click to code your own. For the latter, you need to have a premium plan.
However, if choosing a template, in the blocks section, you will have the option of dragging and dropping the code block.
After you dragged it wherever you want in the template, you will paste the code on the right.
Important notice: make sure the text box is empty when you paste your embed code.
When you are done, click Save and close. Send your email.
If you’re using other email platforms to send email newsletters, just make sure it supports HTML code.
