E-blasts are graphical html e-mails that are 100% dedicated to your message and reach the Networld audiences of your choice.
Want to design your own e-mail? The following tips will help your message retain its proper layout across various e-mail clients, including Gmail and Outlook.
Design for a 600-800 pixel width – Many e-mail clients comfortably display text and images that are 600 pixels wide. However, wider emails may be "chopped off" in some e-mail client preview windows.
Put background colors inside tables – Several web-based e-mail clients specify a background color on the web page that displays the e-mail. As a result, background colors specified in the body tag of an e-mail may be ignored.
Avoid heavy use of CSS – Many email clients will have a difficult time displaying e-mails with style sheets. If you use CSS, it should be written inline and should primarily relate to text styling. Also make sure to use tables, as CSS formatting can cause issues with many e-mail clients.
Use center tags – Center tags help ensure your e-mails display consistently across web-based email clients.
Use only JPEG, PNG and GIF(static) images - All images must be served on your company's servers.
Limit the use of non-standard languages – Many e-mail clients are not able to properly render Microsoft's Rich Text Format (RTF). This is because the subscriber's email client requires Microsoft software to properly interpret it. Look for (MSO) tags in the body of your HTML to identify Microsoft RTF.

Assets are white papers, case studies, infographics and other downloadable content you’ve created for the industry. These pieces are generally informational vs. promotional – in fact the more informational they are, the more downloads they’ll get!
Since everyone who downloads one of your assets or views one of your webinars is captured as a lead for you, it pays to produce content the industry wants.
Examples of assets:
|Special Publication||White Paper||Webinar||Infographic|
|Orange Leaf partnered with InMoment to launch a store-wide Voice of Customer feedback program and social advocacy initiative.||Frank Mayer's five basic stages of the path to purchase and the connected consumer.||Video walls are growing in popularity by the day.
