Nexweave recently updated its UI and got a new look! You will notice differences (especially in the colours) between the graphics and screenshots you see in this article and the corresponding sections within the Nexweave platform. Don’t worry though, because the steps and processes this article details remain the same. Moreover, we’re going to updating this article to reflect our platform changes very soon. Stay tuned and keep reading!

Generate a URL and embed code for your images and videos that are compatible with MuxEmail and directly plug them into the Email builder on the MuxEmail platform!

For our demonstration, we are sharing a personalised image in an email that hyperlinks to a video landing page. Here's an example of what your recipients would receive:

Let’s begin by creating a new campaign. If you are new to creating Nexweave campaigns, you can have a look out our campaign documentation here

Configure a New Campaign

1. Start by navigating to Campaigns, within Nexweave, and click on Create New Campaign.

2. Set the Campaign Name and select the Campaign Type. You can read more about the available campaign types here.

Since we aim to use both Image and Video templates as a part of our campaign, we selected the campaign type as Image + Video. However, you may choose either Image or Video campaigns, based on your preferences.

3. Next select the Image and Video templates you would like to employ for this campaign. The templates that appear in the dropdowns are from within your My template libraries, ie templates you have created or cloned

For our demonstration we have selected:

  • Image template: Nexweave Demo Email

  • Video template:  Nexweave Demo

  • Video thumbnail: Nexweave emo Thumbnail

4. Next, select the Landing Page URL that your video will be embedded within. The landing page URL can be set to the default landing page, or you can select a custom landing page, whether that is your sales page or website.

Your campaign configuration is complete, let us proceed to activate the campaign!

Set the Activation method

1. Start by selecting the Activation Method from the drop-down. Here, select URL Override Campaign.

2. You will then be prompted to enter the Fallback values for the Nexweave variables being used in the selected templates. Click on Save to confirm the fallback values

Once you Save the Campaign, you can also Preview the Image and Video templates selected.

3. Click on Launch Campaign. This will then enable you to generate embed codes for the image and video.

4. Once you launch, click on Get Embed Code to open the modal. Select the integration platform as MuxEmail.

5. Then map each of the Nexweave variables with the corresponding MuxEmail variables by selecting them from the dropdown.

In case the variable list does not contain an appropriate match, you can also create your own variable from within the dropdown.

6. Click on Generate Embed code to get the email embed code compatible with the MuxEmail platform

Create a MuxEmail Campaign

1. Start by logging into your MuxEmail account

MuxEmail also allows you to link your Amazon SES account

3. To create a campaign, navigate to Campaigns and click on Broadcasts. On this page, click on Create

Click on Next  to continue

5. Click on Edit to design your email body.

6. In our demonstration, we are using the Drag and Drop editor to design our email. However, you may choose to use the Text Editor or one of MuxEmails templates as well

7. You can customize the layout, properties of the email body and add content from the menu to the right of the email.

8. To add text to the email, drag and drop the text tile to the email body.

Type in your desired message within the text editor. To add personalization to your message, click on Merge Tags within the text editor and select the variable you would like to use from the list.
