Using placeholders with Campaign Monitor

It is possible to design your emails with Mail Designer 365 and add Campaign Monitor’s “placeholders.”

With Campaign Monitor, you can use placeholders within your email design. In fact, this is a great tool for connecting with your audience. How so? Placeholders will automatically insert personalized details into your email. If you personalize your campaigns, then recipients will feel a more direct connection with your brand.

To use Campaign Monitor placeholders:

‣ Go to a text area within your design
‣ Right-click and choose “Insert” > “Campaign Monitor “
‣ Choose the placeholder you would like to add

You can insert a placeholder into your text. Remember, information from your Campaign Monitor account will then replace the placeholder.
