HubSpot can create emails used for marketing purposes. These marketing emails allow you to reach out to your customers to provide an immediate or planned response.  HubSpot helps you create and send these emails with templates and a design interface.

Three Types of Marketing Emails

HubSpot can create regular, automated, or blog emails.  Regular emails allow you to send personalized messages to a segment of your contacts.  Automated emails are sent via a workflow in response to a viewer interaction. This option requires an upgraded HubSpot account. Blog emails are used to update subscribers about new content. 

How to Create a Regular Email

Follow the steps below to create a new regular or personalized email.  You must be logged into the WordPress Administrator Dashboard to follow these directions.

The email you are creating autosaves during the creation process. After step 5, you can also click on SAVE in the top left corner if you wish to complete it later.

  1. Click on HubSpot in the main menu.
