For this tutorial we are going to use a pre-made
word template that you can download from the Microsoft download site
Open Microsoft Word. Go to File-New for a new
Once you have a new document look to the right in
the side bar for a link to "Templates Online". Click on the link.
When you click on the link you will be taken to MS
Office online. Type in the search box the word "newsletters"
Browse through the newsletters. The one I'm picking
is called "Business-email newsletter". It is show below. Click on it
to download when viewing it online.
You will see a download button. This will download
it and open it up in MS Word.
Once it is open and in MS Word save it so you do not
lose the original. Now you can work with this one. The newsletter
will be 2 pages. Remove the second page by removing the text content
and deleting the tables and cells. You only need 1 page.
Once you have your one page ready type in your content.
Make place makers for your images to be added later.
Once you have your text content typed now save it as
a "Web Page Filtered" by selecting it from the drop down selections
in the "Save as type" box. Save in a location that you will be able
to find it easily.
By saving it as a "Web Page Filtered" it will
remove a lot of the extra MS Word coding and reduce
the "kb" size of the newsletter.
After you have saved your Word document. Now log into your
and go to Content -New Content.
Under the New Content fill in the "Essentials" tab then click on the
"HTML Message" tab.
Under the HTML message tab scroll to the bottom and click on "Import
Click on the Browse button to locate your saved Word document that
you created and saved as a Filtered Web Page.
Once your MS Word document is imported you can then finish editing
your content, add your
images from the "Image Library". Then save
and do a test mailing.
