How can I add preview text to my message?

Getting your message opened is the first step to great engagement. One way to make sure subscribers are seeing and engaging with your emails is to use customized preview text, especially for mobile devices where this text will essentially serve as a preview of the message itself.

Preview text is a short line of summary text that accompanies the subject line when viewing a message in your inbox. Here's an example of this from Gmail:
