Help putting a flyer in an email

by 3 comments
Could someone please tell me how to make a flyer (in pdf) appear in the body of an email instead of sending it as an attachment?

    There's no easy way that I'm aware of that will let you embed a PDF file directly into the message. PDF will need some type of viewer, and normally a mail client or web interface will not be able to do that directly within the email message. There may be some hairy way to do it, but it's probably not a good idea for compatibility reasons. My advice is to either post the PDF somewhere and include the link in the email, or simply convert the PDF to an image and include that either directly in the email or as an attachment.

    I'm not sure if there are any converters online, but I know you can easily convert a PDF to image using tools like Photoshop. If you need help let me know.

    The easiest way is to convert the pdf to an image and place it in your email.

    If this is not possible, you will have to attach it.

    Hi Christie

    As the other posters have said you wouldn't be able to have the pdf display as an inline graphic in an email it would simply be an attachment (remember that everyone will be accessing email through different applications and browsers so in some cases you pdf might only appear as a line of text!).

    I see you have a couple of websites - why not convert the pdf to a jpg, upload it to a very simple html page (with inline CSS).

    On a Mac using Safari, navigate to the page and then select Safari > Mail Contents of This Page.

    On Windows using IE7 and up, navigate to the page and then select Page > Send Page by E-mail.

    As long as you leave the image and basic html page hosted where they are most email applications should be perfectly fine. Although it's always a good idea to do a few internal tests to lots of different types of accounts - hotmail, gmail, aol etc etc.

    Failing all of this a service like Mailchimp offers a great free package for small mailing lists. I use this service for my own emails - parbjohal (dot) com/emailers/thepowerofmagento/ - replace the (dot) with a '.'!

    Hope that helps!

    Hello guys! I began trying to make a little side cash online and joined Warrior Forum back in 2011. In 2012 I was making Adsense Micro Niche sites and also Amazon sites, always focusing on keywords that I could grab an open .com domain name for. I had many flops, but did have an amazon site that did well and make me about $100 a month on average. I got excited and began writing more and more articles, creating more and more sites. Eventually my marriage hit a rough spot because my wife was upset I spent way to much time on the computer so I walked away from the micro niche site world... Fast forward 4 years, the marriage didnt work out anyway and I wish that I would have never left, I now feel like I have so much to learn all over again! Are Amazon sites still a decent way to go? I woulnt ask for anything to be spoon fed to me I know that is a huge pet peeve for many forum members, but any suggestions or just pointing in a general direction would be greatly appreciated!

    What would you write on your blog when you haven't even launched your product? I looked at 10 blogs and saw that most of them wrote about 'How they achieved and X metric' (non-relevant to the product), culture and other stuff when the whole idea is to gain more 'beta interests'! As a marketer, what will you do? In other words, what will be your content marketing strategy?
