Paste your link, hit return, and a preview magically appears in your email

Something huge has happened with links in the AWeber message editor. They can now expand into “preview cards” automatically.

When you’re creating emails, do you ever take a link that looks like this…

and make it more enticing by adding an image, title, and description similar to this?

Sound great, right?

The instructions are simple.

1. Paste your link URL into your email.
