Email – Preheader Text

Preheader text is brief summary text that follows the subject line when an email is viewed in an inbox. Many email clients provide them to give you a preview of what the email contains before it’s opened. Here’s an example in Gmail:

Unless you provide specific preheader code this text is taken from the text in the email body. You can override this with a small summary text to make the email more engaging and likely to be opened with the preheader code below by placing it just after the <body> of the email template or in a text block at the start of your email.

<div style="display: none; max-height: 0px; overflow: hidden;">
Insert hidden preheader text here
</div>

<!-- Insert &zwnj;&nbsp; hack after hidden preview text -->
<div style="display: none; max-height: 0px; overflow: hidden;">

&nbsp;&zwnj;&nbsp;&zwnj;&nbsp;&zwnj;&nbsp;&zwnj;&nbsp;&zwnj;&nbsp;&zwnj;&nbsp;&zwnj;&nbsp;&zwnj;&nbsp;&zwnj;&nbsp;&zwnj;&nbsp;&zwnj;&nbsp;&zwnj;&nbsp;&zwnj;&nbsp; </div>
