Creative freedom in commercial email design has always and still forms one of the foundations of Mailkit. The platform was originally developed to meet the needs of a company we owned. The need for creative freedom in content and design was very important to us. Almost 15 years later we are very happy to share this creative freedom with you.
Basic newsletter design is carried out using our WYSIWYG editor, built to insure your email is always using valid HTML code. The editor is laid out with the familiar toolbars found in a typical word processor, making it very easy for most users to change elements such as layout, font, indentation, numbered lists, images, links and so much more.
Mailkit can send e-mails as a combined plain-text and HTML, HTML only or as a plain-text only message. When using the standard combined format you have the freedom to edit both the HTML and plain-text versions of your message or you can simply let Mailkit generate the plain-text part from the HTML version automatically.
You can preview your campaign at any point during the design process. Additionally it is possible to preview the results of any personalization in your campaign. By creating your own set of preview profiles to replace the personalization tags with dummy data, you can check that everything appears as you intended.
Advanced users can use the import feature to load the HTML code from their computer or web-page. Retrieved code is immediately displayed in the WYSIWYG editor and can be further edited and optimized. Unclosed, unsupported and invalid tags are automatically removed while styles are automatically converted, reducing the time required to dispatch the campaign.
Mailkit provide you everything you need to personalize and massively increase the success of your campaigns. By adding simple tags into the body of your email you can easily add personalized data for each recipient (email, name, address, etc.). Mailkit will replace these tags with real data for each recipient when sending, giving your campaigns a more intimate feel.
All of the data you generate on Mailkit will never be deleted. It is stored for your convenience at no additional cost and includes all campaigns (sent, unsent and deleted) and report data. The full versions of everything are kept and available to browse, older data is available upon request.
Mailkit will never promote itself by placing logos or other self-promotion into the body of your email. We firmly and quite rightly believe that you should decide on who or what you wish to promote to your subscribers.
Mailkit makes it easy to add any image into the body of your email campaigns, directly from the file-manager or any website. Images can be further resized and cached on our servers at no extra cost.
Every business wants to know the opinions of their clients to optimize their business model or just make sure they're doing it right. You can easily add your own polls to your email campaigns and let your recipients respond directly from their inbox. Results are displayed immediately in your campaign reports.
You can take your campaigns directly to your subscribers mobile phones by sending SMS messages from within Mailkit. It is even possible to link SMS campaigns with email and vice versa.
