There are four ways to create a Blast:

  1. Create a new Blast from scratch.

  2. Duplicate an existing Blast.

  3. Use a Blast template.

  4. Upload HTML of a predesigned Blast.

Create New

To create a Blast from scratch, go to Blasts > Create New (located in the left hand menu AND in the top right hand corner of your screen).

Once you click Create New, the Blast Editor will open and you will have a blank slate to create your Blast. For more information on how to start building your Blast using Elements, check out this article.

Duplicate a Blast

You have the ability to copy both Drafted Blasts and Blasts that have been previously sent out to your Subscribers. To do so, follow the steps below:

  1. Go to the correct page:

    1. If you want to duplicate a DRAFTED Blast, go to Blasts > Drafts.

    2. If you want to duplicate a previously SENT Blast, go to Blasts > Sent.

  2. Once you are on the correct page, search or sort for the Blast you want to copy.

  3. Click the three horizontal dots (located in the right column).

  4. Click Duplicate Blast.

Once you copy the Blast, the duplicated version will open in Blast Editor where you can edit, save a draft, send the Blast, etc.

Use a Template

There are two different ways you can create a Blast using a template.

Option One:

  1. Go to Blasts > Templates.

  2. Scroll through the My Templates, Recently Used, and All Templates tabs to find the template you would like to use. Note: You can also use the sort, filter, or search capabilities to locate the template.

  3. Hover over the template you want to use.

  4. Click Create with Template and then the template will open in Blast Editor where you can edit, save a draft, send the Blast, etc.

Option Two:

  1. Go to Blasts > Create New.

  2. BEFORE using any Blast Elements, hover over the template you would like to use (located under the Recent Templates section at the bottom of your screen).

  3. Click Create with Template and then the template will open in Blast Editor where you can edit, save a draft, send the Blast, etc.

Upload HTML

To create a Blast using already created HTML, go to Blasts > Create New > click the Upload HTML button (located in the bottom right corner of the Blast Editor window).

Please Note: If you choose to upload HTML, you will NOT be able to use any Elements to edit your Blast inside the Blast Editor.
