How to use BEE Free
BEE Free is the original free version of the BEE drag and drop builder. Learn more about the builder on this page.
You can use BEE Free to create an email or landing page with our innovative, easy-to-use content blocks and other features. You can also:
- Preview the design to see how it will likely look in your email client or browser
- Send a test to yourself
- Download the HTML source code to use it in another application.
To download the design, click the Download button in the upper-right corner. BEE Free will create a ZIP file containing both the HTML and the images, then prompt you to download it to your computer. Please note that preparing the file may take a few seconds.
Once you download the file to your computer and unzip it, you will see the *.html file. Some platforms allow you to import the ZIP itself, uploading both the HTML the images. Others will need you to import the HTML and the images as separate folders.
If you use the Save button instead, this will prompt you to create a BEE Pro account. You can use this option to import your design to a new BEE Pro account.
Note that BEE Free is considered an "as-is" version of the builder. If you're looking for more features, check out BEE Pro.
If you have any questions, feel free to contact us.
In this discovery process for me, the mystery has been "Some email programs..." WHICH email programs can I use to send my BEE-created emails? I'm sold, otherwise :)
Hi Daniel, you can use it with ANY email programs. The "some" referred to the fact that some ESPs include a zip import feature, some don't. Still, you can get an email built with BEE into the other ones as well by using other ways to do so.
And it's not just ESPs. Let's say you want to use a message created with BEE in Gmail. There is no "import zip file" feature in Gmail, but you can simply send the message to your Gmail account using the Send Test feature and the message will be there.

We hope this helps!

I have the zip created by BEE but i want to import them other time to BEE and edit it. How can i do it?
Hi Diego, it's currently not possible to re-import your zip file into BeeFree. What you can do is to open your previous message by clicking on the button "Welcome back! Nice to see you again | Continue editing your last message?" on https://beefree.io/
Also, if you'd like to save your messages in the cloud (plus many more features) you can check out BEE Pro and sign up for an account (15 day free trial, $15/month afterwards) on https://beefree.io/bee-pro/pricing/
Hello, i have created two different e-mail template on Bee Free (I guess its bee free because it didnt ask me to pay) now i want to change something on my previous message. but it only shows the last message. How can i access the previous one? I have sent previous one's test e-mail to myself but there is no link to click and continue to change. Could you please help me?
Hi Elif, BeeFree allows you to save and download only one message. It's not possible to revert back to a previous version or to a different message you had previously created in BeeFree. If you wish to save multiple messages, you can do so with a BEE Pro account, which includes a 15 day free trial and is $15/month afterwards. Feel free to check it out and sign up on https://beefree.io/bee-pro/pricing/
