Next, go to Selzy. Create a campaign, choose the Start From Scratch option — Your Code. Insert the code and send the email.

Inserting your HTML code to Selzy.

 

Due to the specifics of HTML code, the rules of formatting are different in eSputnik and Selzy. That’s why the layout in the exported document can sometimes go wrong. To avoid any issues, we recommend that you check the way your email looks and send a test email to your own address before sending your campaign to others.

You won’t be able to export emails created in the eSputnik block builder. However, you can create new emails with ready Selzy templates. They fall into various categories according to the niche and format, so you’ll easily find the ones you need.
