In order for your FeedOtter emails to be compatible with your Hubspot integration, you must add these Hubspot tokens to the footer of your HTML email code.
Sample Hubspot Email Template
Add these to the footer section of your HTML email template before sending.
If you are using one of the built in email templates you can choose from any number of customization options. The most important ones are:
Our RSS email will rely on Hubspot's built in email performance and link performance reports to measure email engagement statistics such as opens and clicks but we also want to measure the increase in website traffic delivered by our content emails. To do this we can use UTM parameters.
FeedOtter has a built in feature that will automatically add the correct UTM parameters to your content links.
Now that you've finished the basic setup of your newsletter, click Create Your First Issue in the top-right corner.
Here, click Add Content to show a popup of available content in your FeedOtter Account.
Click the dropdown arrow next to Select Content Source to see the RSS feeds, WordPress sites, etc. that we added previously.
Then add the content you wish to show in each section of your Hubspot email newsletter.
Once you've filled the Featured section with one post, click the dropdown arrow on Select Section to add content to other sections of your email.
You can also reorder content by dragging and dropping in the left column and edit or remove content respectively.
When looking at the selection of content, you may also see a Content Queue option. FeedOtter allows you to save content from any part of your website into your account for use in your newsletter including events, webinars, ebooks, etc. Here's more information on bookmarking external content to your FeedOtter account.
When you are done with the setup its time to publish your new email newsletter to Hubspot where we will complete the last step of sending your Hubspot email newsletter.
Click the green Publish button in the upper-right of your campaign window. Then choose Hubspot as your sending platform.
If you have previously setup a Hubspot connection in your FeedOtter account you can select it from the dropdown. Otherwise, click the Add a Hubspot Connection button.
You will be prompted to enter your Hubspot account and allow FeedOtter to create new emails in your Hubspot account.
Once you've logged in to your Hubspot account, click the user associated with your newsletters.

FeedOtter automatically creates a folder for FeedOtter Curated Emails where all of your Curated Newsletter issues will appear.
This shows you the HTML code of your email newsletter. You can preview the actual email by clicking Preview in the top-right corner.
