Are you using Apsis for your email marketing campaigns? If so, that means you now can easily feature user generated content (UGC) in your emails by copying and pasting the embed code from Flowbox in Apsis.

Step by step guide to embedding your Flow in Apsis (HTML)

From Flowbox admin:

  1. Log into your Flowbox account and select your Flow.

  2. Click on the 'Settings' (cogwheel) menu.

  3. In the left-hand styling menu, enable the Flow for 'Email'.

  4. Styling your email Flow:

  • You can select as many rows and columns you want in your email Flow.

  • The width can be set with both pixels (px) and percentage (%) values. We recommend using '100%' as it will make the email Flow responsive.

  1. Set your Flow to ‘First product (Static)’, ‘Custom CTA (Static)’ or ‘All to same URL (Dynamic)’. Check out everything you need to know about Flows in Email in this article.

  2. Scroll down to 'Fallback URL' and input your preferred URL. NOTE: this needs to include 'https://'. Once a valid URL has been entered, you will see your images appear.

  3. When you're done setting up the Flow, scroll down to 'View Email Embed Code' and copy the full email embed code.

From Apsis:

  1. Log into your Apsis account and create a new email.

  2. Drag and drop a new HTML Element (located in the Design Panel on the right) to your email template.

  3. Click on the HTML Element you've just added, and a module will open letting you edit.

  4. Paste the Flowbox email embed code into this section.

  5. If you click away from your HTML Element, you will be able to see a preview of your embedded Flow.

  6. The email is now ready to be sent!

  • Make sure that you have set the width of the Flow in Flowbox to ‘%’ instead of ‘px’ to make it responsive.

  • If anything is not inline, double-check the settings on your email template.
