Cloud-based email sending service Amazon SES (Simple Email Service)
is an easy-to-use platform that savvy marketers leverage to promote their brand.
And when you bring the BEE email editor into the mix, your Amazon SES templates get even better.
The BEE editor is a simple way to create emails online. Whether or not you're experienced with coding, you can use BEE's HTML templates to quickly and easily create messages for your brand. Then use the Amazon SES connector to send those templates to your Amazon account.
BEE's email templates are a great fit for any brand with big email marketing goals. The template catalog at BEE includes hundreds of mobile-responsive templates — many of them completely free to use — created by professional designers. With targeted templates for e-commerce messages, holiday greetings, personal notes and so much more, it's easy to search the catalog and find the best template for you.
Once you've selected an email template (or opted to create an email from scratch), use the BEE editor to customize the message. The editor's drag-and-drop feature lets you add your own branded images, font, colors and more. When you're finished with the email, you can export it to an email service provider of your choice — including your Amazon SES account.
To connect your accounts and use Amazon SES email templates, you'll need a BEE Pro account. This premium account comes with extra features like exclusive templates, team collaboration and the ability to export templates to more connectors. Click here for a free two-week trial.
When your BEE Pro account is all set up and ready to go, you can connect it to your Amazon SES account.
From your BEE dashboard, go to "Settings" and then "Connectors". Find Amazon SES and click the purple "Connect" button. In the pop-up, insert the following information: your AWS key, your region and (if desired) your account name. Then you'll be able to connect your accounts.
Want to export a single Amazon SES HTML template from BEE? You can do that, too. Create the email in the BEE editor and then click "Export message". Select "Push to your sending system" and then choose Amazon SES from the list of options. If you haven't already connected your accounts via Settings, you'll need to do that now. Otherwise, you can immediately send your template to your Amazon account. You'll find the Amazon SES templates in your Amazon account under "Email Sending" and "Email Templates".
Take your Amazon SES templates to the next level by considering a BEE Agency account. This subscription is helpful if you're designing messages for several different clients or different applications. BEE's Agency account gives you the capability to create a designated section in BEE Pro for each client and connect that client to their own Amazon SES account. The Agency account is a great way to stay organized as you work with an Amazon SES template editor.
