When building a newsletter campaign, the step for choosing the right template follows just after giving a title for the campaign. Prebuilt templates save your time and minimize the efforts needed to create a good-looking newsletter. In the next steps, you can customize them according to your needs - choose the colours that match your brand, add extra elements, fill it with content, and you're ready to go!
Templates vary in layout. Depending on the purpose of your campaign, specifics of products or mood, choose the one that looks the best for you and feel free to experiment next time.
You can find our modern and fully customizable templates under the Standard templates tab. The list consist of the following templates:
- New York
- Los Angeles
- Blank (plain text) template
All of these templates vary in style, but are fully customizable when it comes to both style and content. When you choose either of these templates and edit them you will still be able to go back and choose another template without losing any changes to the style settings (unless you had something specific to that template) or content.
If you choose the plain text email template (Blank template), you will be able to compose your email message out of an image, text and line/space content blocks.
In case you want to save time and not spend it finding the best color palette, button size, and font to fit your needs, you can go for themed templates. These templates already have everything ready for you and are prepared by professional designers.
All you need to do is to add your logo, your contact details, and content.
However, as these templates are based on our Standard templates, you can still edit the design any way you want.
Once you are happy with how your email template looks, you can save it as a custom template so you could reuse it for later campaigns or automated emails.
To save a template (with your design and content), in the email editor click on the triangle next to the Save button and choose Save as a template.
Add the name for your new template or update an existing one and you are done. Next time you want to use this template, you will be able to find it under Saved templates on the Template step of your campaign or automated email setup process.
