Customize Marketing Campaigns

  5. If your business has multiple locations, you can select a specific location. This will determine which address shows up at the bottom of your emails, and limit where the coupon can be redeemed. Note: If you want your coupon to be redeemable at all locations, leave the default All Locations selection.

  6. Select a pre-existing template from the theme library, or use the default template to customize your email template. Choose the default campaign colors, layout, global styles, font size, button size, and email header styles of your template. You can also add images, new text fields, and Items from your library, and re-order these blocks of content so the email matches exactly what you’re looking for. With Square Marketing you have access to a searchable image gallery with over 850,000 free stock photos.
