Very excited for this session later today :)  

@sdhar you may find this helpful given our discussion in this thread, I recommend checking out these resources as well! The video will be uploaded later this afternoon.


Just curious, who in this community watches these trainings, and is also a Klaviyo email expert that works with small ecomm businesses?


Hello @jennifer.brisebois 

Thank you for this training, it was so helpful. A question for you, you did not mention product blocks which we use a lot for one of the brands - is this something we should avoid. Is there a best practice?

@emilycavanagh You’re so welcome, I’m glad you found it helpful! Product blocks are a super useful block that can help you feature products. Today’s training was more focused on high-level layout, but product blocks are definitely a recommended way to promote people purchasing a specific product. 

A lot of the email examples we looked at were for brand new products or new colors, so there was more hype to build around them. I’d recommend using product blocks to promote products that are not brand-new (Best Sellers are a great use case for product blocks). Dynamic product blocks are also great if you’re trying to customize the offering to be relevant to the reader. 

If you DO include a product block, treat that as your CTA. I would avoid trying to get people to take two very different actions in the same email (IE. Read our policy update AND buy this new product).

Thanks for running the webinar today! Is there a download link for the presentation file, not just the video?

Hi @Seb, @NJVasic, @Emily C, @GAS, @CHLB22, and @emazingkit!


I noticed that all of you attended our last live training that focused on designing emails that convert. Would love to get a chat going about what all you learning from that training! What stood out? What surprised you? What do you want to investigate further? 


I wonder if any of you had similar or differing thoughts that would benefit being sharing out with everyone!


So happy to see our members growing in their Klaviyo skills! You guys rock!
