How to Add Audio to a ClickDimensions Email

Most email clients cannot play audio files directly inside emails. However, you can insert a link to an audio file into a ClickDimensions email template so that your recipients can still listen to your audio messages.

To start, you will need to create the email template that you will be using in your email send. For directions on creating an email template with ClickDimensions, see this help article.

Once you have created your email template, you will need to be sure that the audio file you want to use in your email is saved to your computer. In this example, we saved our audio file as a .mp3 file.

You are now ready to link your email template to your audio file. Below are the instructions for how to do this within different ClickDimensions email editors.
