You asked for it, so we made it possible: now you can send beautiful emails that feature a flipbook snippet. This is very exciting!

It’s a marvelous way to send email newsletters that look professional, but require zero talent and zero effort from you. Give it a try and you will love it.

 

Let’s talk about how it works

From My collections, go to Sharing options -> Email

You will see the flipbook snippet, featuring a title, a description and your flipbook cover, exactly how it will look in your email newsletter. FYI, the background is actually transparent in your email.

The texts are editable, so you can use any title and any description you wish.

How to integrate the flipbook snippet into your email

There are 2 ways to do that: the super easy way, for premium users and the easy way for everyone.

1. The super easy way is to just enter email addresses in the email field and click “Send email”. Easy, peasy. Especially if you don’t want to send a large number of emails. You can’t upload an email list here or enter multiple addresses. What you can do, however, is to enter your email address and then forward the snippet from your account.

2. The other way (easy as well) is to copy the email code and use it in your newsletter. You don’t have to be a techie to do this, but you do need to use an email client that supports HTML code. We recommend Thunderbird as a free, easy to use computer software, but you can also sign up for an online email service like Mailchimp, which is also free if your email list is under 2000 contacts. We wanted to include Microsoft Outlook on the list as well, but HTML code is not supported by all versions.

There are lots and lots of other great email platforms that support HTML coding, so if you’re currently using something else to send email newsletters, just check if it supports HTML code.
