Saving a design on beefree.io
This article is for those that are using our free visual email & landing page builder at beefree.io. If you are instead using BEE Pro, please see Testing and exporting your emails with BEE Pro.
Saved in your browser
When you use beefree.io, the builder saves a copy to your browser storage. This goes beyond the browser session. You can close your browser session (all browser tabs) and then restart the browser. When you go back to beefree.io, the system will retrieve the design from your browser storage. Also, it will ask you if you wish to continue working on it.
There is nothing you need to do to save the design to your browser. An auto-save feature takes care of the task every 30 seconds.
Save by downloading a ZIP file
When you save a design with BEE Free, the system allows you to download a ZIP file. It contains both the HTML and the images that make up the design. You can then import the file into any application that allows you to do so. If designing emails, you must use an external sending platform to send the design.
Save by sending the email to your ESP
Some email marketing systems allow you to save an email by sending it to a special email address. For example, in MailUp there is the "List+" feature. You send an email to a special address, and MailUp will save it to that List in your account. The folks at Mailchimp call it Email Beamer, and it works the same way.
Save by sending the email to Zapier
Zapier is a system that connects many applications. You can use it to push an email created on beefree.io to another application. See: Exporting to many apps via Zapier.
