E-Blast specifications

HTML file for e-blasts

  • The coding must be prepared as a mailing, not as a website.
  • Do not create single-picture mails. In case the image is not showing, the recipient will miss the entire message.
  • Always use in-line CSS styles rather than classes.
  • Avoid external (<link rel=“stylesheet”>) or embedded style sheets (those contained within the <style> tag above the <body> tag). Many email services disable external style sheets and cut everything above the <body> tag.
  • Do not use tag attributes on the <body> tag. Most email services ignore the <body> tag.
  • Use basic HTML tables. Otherwise, your e-blast will not work across different email browsers and clients.
  • Do not use coding shortcuts. For example, when styling CSS, specify the value of each property separately rather than grouping properties in one shortcut code, i.e. use “border-width: 5px; border-style: solid; border-color: #000000;” rather than “border: 5px solid red;”). For both HTML and CSS, use all six hexadecimal digits (#ffffff and #000000).
  • The width of the e-blast should not exceed 1,000 pixels to ensure it is shown properly in email clients. We recommend a width between 600 and 850 pixels.
  • Do not use short URLs because email clients tend to mark these as spam.
  • Do not use JavaScript

Image, background and font guidelines

  • Image format: JPEG, PNG or GIF
  • The total file size of all images must not exceed 300 KB.
  • Avoid background images because they are not fully supported across all email clients and will not display for all users.
  • Avoid image maps because rely on technology that is not supported by many email browsers.
  • Avoid animated GIFs because they are not fully supported across all email platforms, and most will display only the first frame of the animation.
  • Be careful with spliced images. If you place a large spliced image into your HTML using table cells or <img> tags right next to each other. Some email clients may add extra spaces between the images.
  • Use web-safe fonts because they are likely to be present on a wide range of computer systems. A list of web-safe fonts can be found here

Guidelines for responsive design

  • Write mobile-specific CSS.
  • Target different devices with media queries. Over 50% of our online readers use smartphones.
  • The font size of the <body> text should have between 22 and 28 pixels and headlines should have between 15 and 18 pixels.
  • Images should only be compressed to a level, at which the image is still clearly displayed. However, the file size must remain small.
  • Use single-column layouts.
  • Buttons should at least have 44 to 46 pixels in width and height.

Subject line of e-blast

  • The subject line should not exceed 40 characters, including spaces.
  • Aggressive marketing jargon should be avoided in the subject line.
  • Open questions, commands, announcements, a call to action will attract the attention of the reader.

Submission

The e-blast must be submitted as HTML file with the respective image files via email to digitaldispo@dental-tribune.com two weeks prior to the sending date.

Banner requirements

  • Size: according to banner format mentioned above
  • Format: JPEG, PNG or GIF. Animated GIF possible for rectangle, skyscraper and pop-up banners.
  • Please provide the URL to which the banner will be linked.

Note: The rectangle and skyscraper banners are standard banner options and can be placed anywhere on the website. The prime rectangle banner
has a prominent placement at the top of the website.

A pop-up banner overlays the webpage the reader is currently looking at. The banner needs to be either closed or clicked in order for the reader
to continue navigating through the website. This is the most aggressive banner type and is most suitable for exclusive campaigns. Similarly, the
billboard banner appears at the bottom of the webpage and disappears automatically after some seconds. An attractive alternative is the
wallpaper banner, which stays at the bottom of the page and does not obstruct the view of the reader.

Tips for banner ad design

  • Add your company logo to build brand awareness.
  • Keep content and visuals simple.
  • Add a clear visible call to action, for instance “Learn more” or “Get started”.
  • Format your headline and body copy in different sizes. All copy should be four lines or less.
  • Don’t use italics, extremely thin fonts, ALL CAPS, or font sizes smaller than a 10 pt.
