Our drag-and-drop content blocks make it easy to customize your Mailchimp campaign. Use content blocks to add products and promo codes from your online store, share new blog posts with recipients, and more.
In this article, you'll learn about the different types of content blocks and how to use them.
Things to know
Here are a few things to know before you start.
Code your own templates do not include drag-and-drop content blocks. Use Mailchimp’s template language to add repeatable and variant content blocks to your custom-coded template.
Our responsive templates will not constrain images that are not in an Image, Image Group, Image Card, or Image + Caption content block. Large images added to a text block may stretch your layout when viewed on mobile.
Content block types
Choose from a variety of content blocks to build your campaign layout. The available blocks vary depending on the type of campaign you’re working with.
Use it to help visitors buy an item with a credit or debit card, without having to leave your landing page.
In this video, we'll show you how to use content blocks to design an email.
Insert and move content blocks
To insert a content block into a campaign, click and drag the block into your campaign layout.
Content blocks can be dragged vertically or horizontally within the template. To move a block, click and hold the handle in the top left of the content block, then drag it to where you'd like it to go.
When you move a content block, we’ll highlight the Preheader, Header, Body,Column, and Footer sections to indicate where in the layout you're about to drop the block. When you move a block to a different section, it will take on any style preferences for that section.
Set style and settings
Use the Style and Settings tabs to customize the design of individual content blocks in your campaign. Click a content block to bring up the editor, and choose the Style or Settings tab to make changes.
The Style tab is where you’ll make changes to font type and color, text alignment, button appearance, and more. Any preferences applied to an individual block will override style preferences for the section as a whole.
The Settings tab includes additional customization options, like the number of columns, where to place an image caption, or which products to display.
Each content block type has different Style and Settings options, so try a few to see which best achieves the design you're looking for.
