In short, you want to immerse your readers in a visual environment that matches your business and your brand. It’s therefore essential to ensure that the final newsletter product is optimal on mobile devices.

Our phone is now mobile and this mobility has become our favorite way to communicate, whether it’s with SMS or social networks. Email communication is no exception and you must be aware of this phenomena to ensure your emails campaigns reaches it’s full potential.

At ADNETIS, we see that for most of our senders, more than half of emails are now open on mobile devices. This is a huge uptrend compared to only a few years ago.

You spent hours creating graphics that fit your company’s visual identity? You performed tests on your computer? You may think you’re done, but it’s a huge mistake! You must do the same efforts on a mobile phone to ensure that your newsletters have the same impact on mobile inboxes than for desktop readers.

Briefly, if phones have the mission to facilitate our lives, they also complicate the lives of email marketing experts. However, once you will have understand how to make good use of mobile technology, it will provides new potential for your marketing goals.

You don’t master the tools to make your emails phone friendly, or just don’t have the time to do it? Mandate our specialists in mobile optimization so you don’t neglect more than 50% of your subscribers, who will see your newsletters on a mobile device!

Your newsletters are automatically mobile, but not optimized!

All newsletters designed with ADNETIS’s email marketing software are automatically mobile. Thus, all sections are superimposed and calibrated on mobile devices.

It’s therefore very important to take this aspect into consideration when designing your graphic template. For example, if you put an image to the right of a paragraph while editing your email, this image will appear UNDER the text in mobile. Depending on your needs, you may want to reconsider how your elements appear on mobile so that the image comes before the text.

In short, the creation of mobile newsletters is done by default at ADNETIS, but the result is far from optimal. To obtain a great email, it’s necessary to align the visual and textual elements for mobile and especially … to preview this version of the email before making your final expedition!

See what your newsletter will look like on a mobile device

When creating your newsletters, use the “Preview” button to see your newsletters as they should be received by your subscribers who will use a computer to consult them. This is found in the “LEFT” portion of your screen in the newsletter editor.
Now that your “Web” version’s complete, watch the rendering of your creation on mobile! The “Preview” tool also allows you to get an overview of the mobile result of your newsletters. To do this, simply select “Mobile” in the LEFT TOP CORNER of your screen.

This handy tool will give you a foretaste of the position of visual and textual elements on the mobile phones of your subscribers.

However, take into consideration that some details may differ from the mobile preview if you perform a test on your phone. In fact, your device could interpret your newsletter in different ways depending on your manipulations. That’s why we invite you to use our multiplatform optimization services. If you do so, our team of experts will use several optimization techniques so that your newsletter is as aesthetic as functional on the platforms used by your clients.
