    • Campaign Type
      The campaign type, having to choose between HTML or Plain Text format. You could choose the Plain text only option, but we highly recommend that unless you have good reason το opt for plain text you should also prefer the HTML and plain text option. By using the HTML and plain text format you can get accurate reporting out of your campaign which is not an option when using plain text.

      The name of your campaign, for internal use only. Use a name that will help you find your campaign later on.
    • Subject line
      The subject line of your campaign as you want it to appear on your recipients' inboxes. Make sure that it is brief and explicit. Keep in mind that you can also use suggestions to improve your open rate, tags and emojis just by clicking on the corresponding icons.
    • Preview text
      The text to the right of your subject line, containing a secondary message that could help you catch your subscribers' attention. Keep in mind that you can also use tags and emojis just by clicking on the corresponding icons.
    • "From" name / email address
      This will be the sender of your campaign, meaning the name and email address that your subscribers will see in their inbox. Use a name that will be easily recognizable to them.
    • Reply to
      The reply-to address, in case one of your recipients decides to reply to your campaign.
