From here you can: 

  • Use "rows & columns" to add different layout designs
  • Use "text" to add a heading or text box
  • Use "image" to pull images from your computer, from the MLS, your headshot, and a picture from a URL
  • Use "call to action" to add a button which you can attach a link to
  • Use "more" for a spacer, divider, or to add HTML
  • Use "settings" to change the colors, fonts, and sizes of the content and disable the stepper
  • Turn the stepper on/off to either make the style or content editable to others or not
  • Choose different headers and footers
  • Click inside the gray rectangle to add content
  • Use the directional arrow in the upper-left hand corner of content to click, drag, and move the content around 
  • Use the red "X" or trash can icon in the upper right-hand corner to delete sections 
  • Use the double paper icon in the lower right-hand corner to copy sections
  • Use the pencil in the lower left-hand corner to edit sections
  • Use the eye icon at the top right-hand bar to preview the template
  • Select the "exit fullscreen editor" to save the template

Step 11:  Take a screenshot of the blast template and select "add photo" to add it to the template to have it display as a preview for when a person is under blast marketing and clicks the eye icon to preview the template

Step 12: Select "create" to complete the blast template

Note: After you click "create" you will notice that the blast template you created is now under "blast marketing" under the available templates once you choose the "+" sign.
