Using the HTML Coding Block

The Custom HTML content block allows you to easily add your own HTML code to an email that you are building with ContactMonkey. It’s as simple to use as a text block. 

Adding more customized content

You are not limited by a set of predefined parameters and can, therefore, have more granular control of the styles applied.

Adding anchor links

You can now add content that is not available as a standard content element in the editor (HTML 5 video, anchor links, etc.). See our article here.

Adding advanced effects with CSS

Get creative with animations! Animation effects are not widely supported by the email clients but, when managed correctly, they can help your message go viral.

 Adding live content from external providers

Product recommendations, dynamic ads, personalized maps, countdowns… all of this advanced content can now be easily included in a message created with ContactMonkey. Just copy and paste the code provided to you by the vendor that you are working with.
