New Features: Preview Text, Comparison Report, and Add Contacts

The newest release of VerticalResponse is live and ready for you to check out its newest features:

This text is typically pulled from the body of the email if not specifically defined. Think of the preview text as an alternative subject line. It’s another opportunity to convince subscribers to open your email which is why you want to use the space wisely and avoid repetition.

When creating your email in VerticalResponse, now you can designate the preview text under the Header Settings.

Add Contacts
