New features: Preview text, comparison report and add contacts

The newest release of VerticalResponse is live and ready for you to check out its newest features:

Hidden Preview Text

Sometimes referred to as snippet text, or a pre-header, the Preview Text is the short line of copy displayed in your subscriber’s inbox along with From Name and Subject Line. Watch this two-minute video to learn more.

This text is typically pulled from the body of the email if not specifically defined. Think of the preview text as an alternative subject line. It’s another opportunity to convince subscribers to open your email which is why you want to use the space wisely and avoid repetition.

When creating your email in VerticalResponse, now you can designate the preview text under the Header Settings.

New Features: Preview Text, Comparison Report, and Add Contacts

This customized text will display in your subscribers inbox only, not in the body of the email. Note: Preview text is not supported by all email apps. Depending on browser size and subject line length, the amount of preview text displayed varies.

Add Contacts

If you’ve collected contacts from an event or a paper list at the register, you can now quickly add these names and email addresses on the Contact page. Simply add your new subscribers information, select the list you want to add them to, and then click ‘Save.’

New Features: Preview Text, Comparison Report, and Add Contacts

Another new feature allows you to quickly fix invalid emails. Once you upload a list, VerticalResponse will display any contacts not added. Here you can easily correct the addresses and click ‘Save.’
