If you want to create your own branded email for use with SalesFlash, please follow these instructions. You will need to create your own SendGrid account for this. Go to http://www.sendgrid.com to create an account. You are responsible for all charges on your SendGrid account.
Step 1) Generate a SendGrid API Key
Step 2) Create a Transactional Email Template
Insert these placeholders into your email and FACEOFFERS will insert the correct data.
%subject% – Subject of the email. (FACEOFFERS – new offer from <MerchantCompanyName>)
%name% – First name of the consumer.
%offername% – Title of the offer.
%body% – The email template from SalesFlash Settings.
%description% – Description of the offer.
%companyname% – The name of the Merchant’s company.
%Unsubscribe% – Unsubscribe link. Has to be added.
%offerimage% – The URL for the offer image.
%offerurl% – The URL for the offer on the Offers Page.
See how %name%, %body% and %offername% are used in the SendGrid Design Editor.
See how %offerimage% and %offerurl% are used below in the SendGrid Code Editor.
<a href="%offerurl%" target="_blank"> <img class="max-width" width="400" height="" src="%offerimage%" alt="Offer Image" border="0" style="display: block; color: #000; text-decoration: none; font-family: Helvetica, arial, sans-serif; font-size: 16px; max-width: 546px !important; width: 100% !important; height: auto !important; " /> </a>
