Step By Step Guide to Using an HTML Canva File on ActiveCampaign
There are broadly two ways of doing this, let’s explore the first method.
- Design the files/contents you’ll be using for the campaign with Canva. If you don’t have any special idea in mind, you can simply pick from several available templates and make edits to fit your brand.
- Export your designs in PDF format. Canva doesn’t yet support export in HTML, so you’ll need to first export the PDF, and use a PDF-to-HTML file converter.
- Now, upload your converted file (HTML) to ActiveCampaign. Sign in to your ActiveCampaign account and select “Create New Campaign” and select “Build from scratch” and “Custom HTML”
- Copy and paste your code into the ActiveCampaign Editor. This code will replicate your designs in Canva. If needed, you can also further edit your HTML file in ActiveCampaign to your preferred taste before publishing the Campaign.
With this method, you’re not technically converting your Canva design to an HTML file before uploading. ActiveCampaign tool is integrated with Canva, as such you can connect your Canva account to your ActiveCampaign area and work directly.
Once connected, simply navigate through to the email template editor, then click on “Canva”. When done, you’ll need to export it as an image before adding the content to your campaign template.
Most seasoned digital marketers prefer using method #1 because it offers them more flexibility and control over what should be included in the designs especially if they understand HTML.
