Gmail is one of the most popular email service providers in the world.
And there's no reason you shouldn't be able to send gorgeously designed HTML emails directly from your account.
With BEE's Gmail connector, you can use our responsive HTML templates, customize them however you like with our drag-and-drop email editor, then push the completed emails over to your Gmail account and send from there.
When you use BEE's templates with your Gmail account, you get the best of both worlds. The BEE catalog has hundreds of mobile-responsive templates for Gmail, and no matter what type of email you need to send, you can find a relevant BEE template. Hosting a product launch, advertising a restaurant or sending a Father's Day greeting? BEE's Gmail templates are ready to help you save time without sacrificing design. Plus, the editor's drag-and-drop functionality means you don't need a coding background to create these colorful HTML messages.
This setup will also work for anyone looking to create and send canned responses from within Gmail. This smart email marketing tactic saves time, allowing you to create emails that can be used again and again. When you use BEE to create these messages, you can improve conversions through savvy design that conveys your message and draws the eye to your CTA.
You can use your Gmail and BEE accounts in a few different ways: Use our free Gmail add-on in your Gmail account — no BEE account required. Or, if you have a BEE Pro account, you can use our separate Gmail connector to import messages from the BEE editor into Gmail. Alternatively, you could use BEE Pro and the Gmail add-on at the same time.
To use this add-on, you don't need a BEE account — as long as you have a Gmail account, you're good to go. Our Gmail template extension gives you access to sleek, professionally-designed email templates that you can use within your Gmail account.
Install the BEE Templates for Gmail Add-on in G Suite Marketplace. You'll see the BEE icon in the right-hand sidebar of your inbox. Open any of the emails in your inbox and then click the BEE icon to select a template. You won't have to do any drag-and-drop design here. Instead, just choose a template, open it in your email draft and customize with images and text.
You can then also use BEE Pro and the Gmail add-on together. This option lets you import your message straight to Gmail from BEE Pro. Install the BEE Templates for Gmail Add-on. Design a message in your BEE Pro account. When you’ve finished designing, copy the URL on the message details page. From Gmail, click on the BEE icon, paste the URL and import the message.
If you have a BEE Pro account, activate the Gmail connector to design more complex emails with the BEE editor and send them through Gmail.
From your BEE Pro dashboard, go to “Settings” and then “Connectors.” Find the Gmail connector and sign into your Gmail account when prompted, giving BEE permission to access your Gmail.
Once you've done that, you'll be able to use BEE templates for Gmail. Select a free Gmail template from the BEE catalog, edit the message and then save the template and exit. Click “Export Message” to send the message to Gmail with just one click. When you go to your Gmail account, the email will show up in your Drafts folder. You can send the message from there.
