Most email services like Constant Contact, Emma, MailChimp, and SendGrid have visually-appealing and easy to use email templates built into their platforms.
But for those of you who are interested in something beyond what your email service has to offer, you can choose email templates from third party designers. In this post, we’re going to show you five stellar email template collections with over 40 designs that you can use with (almost) any email service.
Batch1 Email Templates
Batch1 is a set of 20 transactional email templates for $23. It comes with responsive layouts for launching a new product, announcing a sales event, sending a weekly newsletter, confirming an order, and much more. You can also use their online template editor to customize your templates.
Presenta Email Templates
Presenta is a set of six emails for $18. It comes with responsive layouts for every step of a product sale, from the pre-launch to the order confirmation with testimonials and discounts in between. You can also use their online template editor to customize your templates.
Minimo Email Templates
Minimo is a set of ten emails templates for $19. It comes with responsive layouts for business, hosting, corporate, photography, services, commerce, blog, marketing, newsletter, and magazine. Don’t let the names of the templates determine which one you choose. Even if you are not a photographer, you might find the photography layout works best for showcasing your products. You can also use their online template editor to customize your templates.
Virgomail Email Templates
Virgomail is a set of six email templates for $15. These templates allow you to color-customize long or short-form email newsletters and product listings to your subscribers.
How to Add a New Template to Your Email Service
Once you’ve found a great new email template, you will need to add it to your email service. Depending on the service you use, the process will vary. MailChimp, for example, has a Create a Template option that allows you to paste in code, import an HTML file, or import a zip file to add a new email template to your account.
You can search for your email service’s directions on how to create a custom email template on Google to find support documents, tutorials, and videos to help with the process.
How to Get a Custom Email Template
If you want to go beyond the templates provided by your email service and pre-made third party templates that are available to anyone, you can look into getting a custom email template design. Services like Email Monks specialize in custom email template design for as little as $149 for the design plus coding. Crowdsourcing platforms like 99designs allow you to create contests where designers compete for your business by creating email template designs for you to choose from. Contests start at $299 for approximately 30 designs by good designers. You can choose higher pricing options to increase the number of designs you receive or the caliber of designers who will enter the contest.
As you can see, there are many ways to separate yourself from your competitors with professionally-designed email templates for your business at an affordable price. Be sure to look at all of the options so you can choose the best fit for your business.
