Something huge has happened with links in the AWeber message editor. They can now expand into “preview cards” automatically.
When you’re creating emails, do you ever take a link that looks like this… https://blog.aweber.com/learn/lead-magnet-ideas-to-grow-your-email-list.htm
and make it more enticing by adding an image, title, and description similar to this?
If you do, get ready to start saving insane amounts of time creating your emails. AWeber’s message editor can now automatically expand your links into previews for you, including the title, description, and image!
Sound great, right?
The instructions are simple.
1. Paste your link URL into your email.
2. Hit return or enter to move to a new line.
3. Sit back and watch your link magically expand into a beautiful, easy-to-use preview.
Want to turn your preview back into the link URL? Simply click Undo at the top of the editor.
This feature is currently optional. Click the buttons right below to turn it on or off in your account.
