Important Update To ‘Branding’ Of Your List

This update is important for those who use SendSteed.

If you use SendSteed, please read.

List Name vs Brand Name

Previously, the system shows your List Name in the header of all emails you send out from SendSteed.

But there 2 problems.

1) Some members do not want any branding in the header.

2) Some members use lame List Name, such as New York List, List From LeadsLeap Ads, etc. (Most probably they are not aware that the List Name will appear in the email header.)

Truth is, List Name and Brand Name serve different purposes. One is for you to see, one is for your subscribers to see. They should be separated!

I don’t know why it took us so long to realize this fact. (My sincere apologies.)

Anyway, it’s better late than never.

List Name and Brand Name are now separated.

Change In Image Size Limit

As you probably know, you can use image in the email header.

Previously we limit the image width to 200px.

At that time, our thinking was image = logo. Something like this:

We limit the width to 200px so that if someone uploads a high res logo, it will not flood the entire email.

But some members wanted to use a full-size banner design for the header.

That was not possible.

Now, the image width is increased to 600px, which is the width of the email content.

With this change, your email can now look like this:

Using Of <span> Tag In Header

If you are a bit html savvy, you can get more adventurous by using <span> tag in the Brand Name.

Without <span> tag, when you enter a text in the Brand Name, the default style will be shown.

You can’t change the font family, font size etc.

But with <span> tag, you are free to style the Brand Name anyway you want (provided email clients can support).

Say you enter

<span style=”font-size: 40px;font-family:cursive;”></span>

Your email will look like this

Preview, Preview, Preview

Last but not least, we have added a Preview link to the Customization Form.

You can design and preview your email header easily.

What You Must Do Now

If you use SendSteed, please go to My List and click the setup button for each of your list.

Then set up the Brand Name.

Of course, you can leave Brand Name empty if you want. Then your email will look like any standard email.

Until you set up the Brand Name, all your existing email episodes and broadcasts will be sent without any branding.

We did not automatically import your previous List Name into Brand Name because we want a clean start. With all the changes being made here, it’s better that you check the branding design before it is deployed.

Together, let’s make SendSteed emails professional!

  1. Excellent changes! Thanks for the update. It’s made things a lot easier for me now considering there’s now the flexibility to use (or not use) brand art or name in the email header. The full-size header re-adjustment is also fantastic. Now I can make my Newsletter emails more attractive!

    1. A good header design is half the battle won. It gives people the reason to read your new newsletter. :)

  2. Glad that this was implemented. I opt into my own pages just to see the email and that was one of the things that stood out was the List name appeared. So everytime I sent a broadcast about a specific opportunity the list name was always there. But now I am able to add my brands logo and now all of them can appear the same. Much better

  3. This confirms my conviction that Leadsleap is one of the BEST Autoresponder/Email Marketing Systems (if not THE best) available anywhere, at any price. Furthermore, although I have other autoresponders for various purposes, I find myself wanting to use the LeadsLeap Landing Page Bulder for anything & everything! It’s simple and easy to use creatively, but extremely powerful. I proud to be associated with a great company – Leadsleap!

  4. LeadsLeap never stop getting better and better. Thanks Kenneth for such a great and complete tool!

    Stay safe, healthy and happy.
