to promote and they automatically appear in your marketing email!


More Information:

Q: Is it clickable? A: Yes, like all our real-time content. By default, clicking 
a product takes the shopper to the Instagram page (not the product page).

Q. Can I use Slot Rules to swap this for different types of SmartBlock? 
A. Yes, now you can: Product Recommendation, Pinterest and Instagram
SmartBlocks can be swapped because they all use the same type of Slot.

Q: How do I create my own Layout? A: After Step 2, click the pen icon,
edit the Layout HTML, enter a name for it, and click Save.

Q: Can I put this in a web page too? A: Of course - follow exactly the same
steps, except for chosing "for Web Personalization".
