Before you send anything, you need to test this several times to make sure you don’t encounter any surprises once it’s completed. To do this, navigate to the top right of the screen and you will see a Get Test button.

Press this and it will open an interface on the right. from here, you can choose who to send a test email to. We suggest you send one to yourself and one to your colleagues  on a different platform i.e. Gmail and Outlook, mobile and desktop. This way you can ensure that the email looks correct across several platforms.

Next, you can choose if you want to view the contact as a different contact, which is also recommended as it will allow you to test any personalisation you may have used in the email.

Finally, you can choose to send a plain text version. Not a lot of people use plain text email, but it’s still good to check that this is formatted right. 

And that’s it - you have then the first step to testing your HubSpot emails.
