One of our favourite elements of HubSpot is the email marketing automation system that the platform provides for businesses. Email marketing is an important element that should not be overlooked, and creating custom templates gives you that bigger edge over the competition.

Using a HubSpot email template can help make it easier for you to send out emails and keep up with workflows. When you start organizing your templates and actively using them, you will notice a major difference and will wonder why you never did this before.

 

Choosing a HubSpot Email Design You Like

When it comes to your HubSpot email design, everyone has different preferences, so you will just need to think about what you want for your specific brand or business. Some companies like to use simple, less stylized emails, while other companies love big visual branding elements. It also depends what the email is for- an internal notification email looks quite different from your business’ monthly email newsletter. If you don’t have a design idea in mind, it will be very hard to start building your template as you’ll have nothing to go from.

 

Using The HubSpot Template Builder

The HubSpot template builder allows you to create great new templates using rich text modules in the Design Manager, or by uploading from a PSD file. If you aren’t sure how to do this, here is a quick tutorial on how to make your own HubSpot templates. You can also give a HubSpot developer a call and we’ll make sure that our team builds you a beautiful and fully functional template.

 

Adding an HTML Code

You can easily add HTML code to HubSpot to build your templates by copy and pasting the code into HubSpot’s Design Manager. When you are in the Design Manager, click on the Content tab and select the Code Editor and the item for which you are generating a template. So, you will need to click email when you are adding an email template. From this point, there will be on-screen instructions for you to follow to make sure that the process is done properly.

 

Working With a HubSpot Developer

Trying to build things in the back end of a website can be stressful when you aren’t an experienced coder or web developer. A certified Hubspot developer can take away any of the stress you are feeling about working with the HubSpot template builder or design manager. They’ll make sure it’s done right the first time so that you don’t need to worry about making mistakes or getting all of the techniques right.
