Introduction to Snippets

What are they?

Snippets are resusable chunks of HTML and plain text content. Snippets are a great way to...

  • Create saved replies to common questions that your contacts send into ConveYour via SMS or email.
  • Make responding to a ton of incoming text messages really easy.
  • Separate the authoring of your content from the delivery of it.
  • Divide up the work load of writing email copy between multiple users.
  • Create email signatures and footers.
  • Create reusable buttons and calls to action.
  • Save formatted images that can be plopped into any email or content post

Where do I go?

HTML vs Plain Text

The HTML/rich content version you author can be used later in just about any place ConveYour lets you enter rich text like in emails, courses, and challenges.

From the HTML content toolbar, click "+ snippets" to select an existing snippet's content to supplement your new snippet's content!

The plan text version you author can be used very quickly when sending text messages to both individuals and groups.

Text Shortcuts!

SMS Text shortcuts like slack

Enter a shortcut keyword in your snippet's record. These shortcuts can be quickly injected into your SMS messages. They are great for quick replies to incoming messages or for sending a handful of people the same message really quickly.

Example... Let's say you often get asked for a quick breakdown on your product subscription levels..

You could enter in the Text Content box.

Our subscription levels are....

  • Basic $9
  • Growth $29
  • Premier $99

Then in the short cut box enter levels.

Now when sending a text message simply type /levels and press tab! Your text content will be injected into your SMS message body.

Ok, so have you picked up on the coolest aspect about snippets?

You can combine snippets to make bigger snippets!

So while snippets might sound like a small word. They are your basis for building out robust emails.

Think about other email tools you use? How often are you having to completely copy an old email, then make a whole ton of adjustments? Snippets gives you a much more nimble way of authoring your messaging. Don't you think?
