5 Free Newsletter Templates to Make Your Email Standout
27 Sep 2018
At Mailjet our goal is to make your life easier! That’s why we are offering you a gallery of free newsletter templates that you can easily customize and adapt to your needs with our drop-and-drop email editor. So, if you don’t know how to code (or really just don’t want to), you won’t have to! The best part is that all our templates use responsive design. That means all emails will display perfectly on both your computer and your mobile devices and across multiple inboxes.
In this article, we have carefully selected 5 free newsletter templates and we explain how to best use them.
Classic free newsletter template
Let’s start with a classic newsletter template, which you can use no matter what your line of work is. We’d recommend you use our “Edge” newsletter template to promote your latest blog posts.
Hot Tip: When creating your newsletter, be careful with the elements that are visible in the inbox before the message is opened, namely the sender’s name, address, email subject and pre-header. And most importantly, you can try out these various elements all you like using the A/B Testing feature.
Free newsletter template for ecommerce
Do you work in ecommerce? If so, you’re probably aware that your newsletters provide an excellent opportunity to boost your sales. That’s why we advise you to use our “BlueStyle” template.
Hot Tip: Bear in mind that it costs 5 times more to get a new customer than it does to hold on to an existing one. So, it is in your best interests to value the people who have already purchased from you and make sure they keep you top of mind! As a result, we advise you to identify these people and send them promo codes or special offers such as free delivery on purchases.
Free newsletter template for events
If you work in the events sector, you know how important it is to send out information on upcoming dates for things like concerts and ballet performances. And what better way than to send regular newsletters to your contact list?
Hot Tip: Feel free to play on the exceptional and exclusive nature of the events that you’re promoting. For example, you can tell you readers that only the first to reply will be accepted, or that there are only a few seats left. Creating a feeling of urgency among your recipients is always a good way of getting them to take action! FOMO baby!
Free newsletter template for the travel industry
Use your knowledge of the travel industry and insert great colorful images: everything from heavenly beaches to the great monuments of the world’s capitals and not forgetting those lush natural landscapes. Let your customers dream! We recommend you use our “Worldly” template for this type of newsletter.
Hot Tip: Always be aware of good practice and avoid having your emails end up in the spam folder. For example, remember to respect the ratio of 60% text and 40% image and optimize the size of your photos. This will let you improve your deliverability and, therefore, the success of your emailing campaigns.
Free newsletter template for the sports industry
As a sports and entertainment professional, you can use newsletters to provide information on all your upcoming events and promotions. Sports is a visual product, make use of images, GIFs, videos, and more in all your campaigns. Our “Colorado” is just the template for you.
Hot Tip: There’s no one more passionate than a sports fan, so draw on the passion. Fuel the flames with exclusive content, opportunity to connect with the team or players in person, and use the email platform as a visual medium to build a community around your team.
