"Newbie" needs help!

I just ran thru the steps in Quick Start.  I chose plain text because I dont know how to convert text to HTML.  Am I correct to assume this means my email would not be sent in a template but as a "text only" email? if so, how do convert text to HTML and put it in a template and customize the template??

No jabs at the no-tech-skills guy please!

Hi, thanks for trying Campaign Monitor.

You are right, if you choose text only, we just send a plain text email. To create an html email you will need to use an html editor like CoffeeCup HTML or similar.

Campaign Monitor is really aimed at web designer who have these skills already, so if you don't have those skills, you might find it a bit frustrating. We do offer [http://www.campaignmonitor.com/templates]templates[/url] but you would need to edit those in an html editor too.

Another option is to find a helpful web designer (try this thread) and have them customise a template for you. They can set you up on MailBuild and then you can add the content using the online editor and send your campaigns. That might work better for you.
