How do I create a narrow template?

When creating new messages, you want the design to be consistent. Using AWeber's Drag & Drop Email Builder, you can specify a certain width for the overall message. This can be accomplished by adding the "Add Column" option. Just remember to set this width before you start creating the message to make things easier on yourself.

Using "Add Column" as opposed to manually entering line breaks has a few advantages as well. Not only will the template be easier to read on your mobile device, it will alleviate any potential for inconsistent line spacing across different providers.

Step By Step Instructions

  1. First, hover over the Messages tab and click Drafts.
