Powerful Email Marketing Tools

Design Beautiful Emails With Ease

A drag-and-drop email designer allows anyone to easily add their own content and create their own design without ever having to open a code editor. Adding new content is just a click away. We also connect with all the services you love to use, like YouTube, Vimeo, Shopify, or even an RSS feed, to engage with your contacts in new and exciting ways.

Build Custom Web-Forms and Landing Pages

Generating custom subscription forms for your website has never been easier. Build your form and have a generated form embedded into any page of your website by copy and paste. Set the URLs for redirection, including success URL, error URL, awaiting opt-in URL, and more. The generated subscription form code is basic HTML that can be embedded into any type of website.

Facebook Integration

Embedding a subscription form on your Facebook fan page has never been easier. It’s so simple with just a few clicks.

Social Media

When you include a web version link within your campaign, your contacts will see a web version of the email with a small bar that has social sharing options. Enable the Social Submit Links option within your email, and your contacts can share the web version link of the email with their friends from their email client.

Real-time Email Testing for All Major Email Clients

One of the major challenges of designing attractive and functional templates for email marketing is ensuring that your templates will display correctly in a variety of email clients.

Many people remain unaware that Microsoft Outlook, for example, renders HTML email very differently from Gmail, Yahoo, or Hotmail’s webmail services. If you begin to look at the way email documents are rendered in Apple’s mail program or Outlook, you find still more differences. Until now, there has been no quick, efficient way to ensure that your design will maintain the desired look and feel across a wide range of email readers.

ActiveCampaign shows you a visual preview of your message in all of the major email clients, including:

  • Outlook 2003, 2007, 2013
  • Gmail
  • Outlook.com
  • Yahoo Mail
  • Apple Mail
  • iPhone
  • iPad

Sales & Marketing Automation

Automated auto responders are easy to set up with ActvieCampaign.  Set up any number of email messages to be sent either immediately after a new user subscribes to your mailing list or after any period of time has passed. This enables you to create entire sequences of email messages that run completely on autopilot.
