How do I create a Content Box with Personalization and a Web Link?

  • The attributes in your account will determine what is used to personalize the email at the time of send.  It is a best practice to use the Personalization drop-down to choose the correct attribute.  This will ensure the personalization string doesn’t break because of spelling errors
  • To add a hyper link, select desired text and then click on the linking icon from editor tools, the insert link box will open where you can type in the web address on where the link should open
  • The Tracking Alias gives you the opportunity to name the links you create.  The Tracking Alias will appear in the tracking work space and will let you know exactly which link you are tracking
