Email newsletter templates

If you don’t use an email template when producing an email newsletter, you’re building a house without a blueprint. Email templates enable you to easily create robust, effective email HTML or CSS required.

An email marketing strategy that scales

If you want to optimize and streamline your email marketing strategy, email newsletter templates are a must. 70% of consumers who have a strong emotional engagement with a brand spend up to twice as much as those who don’t.

Stop sending email after email after email.

Start sending emails that your subscribers want to read, with eye-catching graphic designs that resonate with your brand. Whether you’re a nonprofit, startup, small business, or enterprise, email newsletters start the conversation between your brand and your subscribers.

Email newsletter designs that work no matter what

Building your own email newsletters and coding email HTML files from scratch is a hassle. That’s why savvy email marketers rely on newsletter templates and drag and drop editors. This can dramatically increase efficiency in distributing newsletters to your email lists.

Whether you choose free email templates or premium options, they typically come with color schemes, responsive layouts, and other features that simplify the email newsletter process. With Mailjet, you can start off free and upgrade when you need advanced features like template management. The more templates you create the more complicated it becomes to manage them, so Mailjet lets you organize and tag your email templates for a perfectly organized gallery.

Mailjet offers responsive email templates that not only works on mobile phones or any other type of mobile device, but also renders properly across major email clients like Gmail, Apple Mail, Outlook, and Yahoo. As we know, responsive email is effective email.
