Getting started is easy.

Step 1

Log in to your Knak account here.

Step 2

Click on either Blank Canvas or Themes

  • Blank Canvas allows you to build an email by dragging in prebuilt modules such as headers and footers. Or by building freeform designs using rows and content blocks.
  • Themes are complete email templates, Knak has a library of standard themes to get you started, and if you have an Enterprise account you can build your own custom themes. More details here.

Step 3

Select your brand.

You can define your brand attributes via company settings > branding.

Step 4

You're now in the builder and ready to get started.

Time to make magic happen!
