In your email campaigns, you can include GIFs. There are many ways to do this, and you can also upload them from your computer through the content manager. Mailchimp enables you to easily insert GIFs in your emails, but you need to be sure that they serve a specific purpose and are aligned with your brand. Here are some tips to help you choose the best GIF for your email campaign.

GIFs have made everyday marketing campaigns much more engaging, and have been associated with better sales and brand awareness. To embed a GIF in your email, you’ll need to embed a special code provided by your email marketing platform, such as HubSpot. If you’re using Mailchimp, Playable integrates directly into the Mailchimp Template Builder. The GIFs can then be linked to your click-through URL.

When choosing a GIF, remember that not every email client will support it. If your campaign has GIFs, make sure you include alternative text to help screen readers understand your message. If your email doesn’t support animated GIFs, try using an alternative image, such as a PNG. While you’re at it, don’t forget to check your email client compatibility. In most cases, your mail client will support GIFs.

GIFs can help make up for a lack of HTML email coding wizardry. They can add a touch of personality to your email and grab your subscribers’ attention. Just keep in mind that GIFs that are more than a few seconds long will take a while to load and make your email sluggish. Thankfully, Mailchimp has a native integration with Giphy, so you can use GIFs in your email without any additional hassle.

Using GIFs in your email can increase the open and click-through rates. The first frame should match the purpose of your email. If it’s a promotional email, a GIF may work better than plain text. However, some people prefer plain text. It’s important to know your audience and what they prefer when sending you emails. It’s also important to know your target audience, as some may prefer plain text instead of images.

If you’re using YouTube videos, you can convert them into GIFs. You can then grab the embed code, choose a static image, or upload a custom image. The embed code is unique to your email marketing platform, but it’s important to note that YouTube’s embed code will be different from yours. If you don’t have a YouTube account, you can still use YouTube as an alternative.

Another great reason to use GIFs is to make your email more interesting. GIFs can highlight the features of your product, which will encourage followers to click through the link. In addition, GIFs can be used as a way to capture leads via Messenger bots. Using GIFs in your email campaigns can be very beneficial for your business. However, it’s important to avoid editing them in Content Studio. Instead, insert them into the content block to ensure they’re visible to your readers.
