Ever wondered  “how do I send HTML email in Gmail?” or “what’s the best way to create Gmail HTML email?” Look no further, there’s no better way to add HTML code to a Gmail email than via ContactMonkey.

If you’ve tried to put HTML in Gmail, you’ll know it’s not that easy. You can’t just flip a button and turn on a what-you-see-is-what-you-get (WYSIWYG) editor. And you can’t just paste in your code either.

Usually, if you wanted to send HTML email through Gmail you relied on workarounds. Unfortunately, these are usually pretty complicated and require an ability to code in order to get your responsive emails to look good. Often you’re left with employee newsletters with broken images and links, or being distorted on mobile devices.

Well, now you can say goodbye to all of that.

Send HTML emails from your Gmail inbox

Personalize your HTML email in Gmail

Speaking of Google Groups, you can use Gmail to send HTML email with personalized subject lines and body copy with ContactMonkey. Based on who in your Google Groups is the recipient, you can insert merge tags in place of text to display the recipients first name, last name, user name, email, and more.

Boost your email open rate and send content your employees want to read with personalized HTML email body copy:

…and custom subject lines:

When your employees receive email that addresses them specifically, they’re far more likely to engage with its contents more seriously. This is just one of the many ways that ContactMonkey boosts employee engagement via internal communications:

Maximize email reach with delayed sending

Not all email sending times are created equal. Many internal communicators will find that their recipients often have a particular window of time in which they are most likely to open and engage with email.

ContactMonkey helps you send email within this window by using delayed sending. It’s super easy to input the time you want your emails to appear in your recipients’ mailboxes:
