Does anyone have any experience with one of those companies? Can you list the issues you face it building the templates on your own?
We already have a template, but we would like to use a more modern and responsive template.
I've used Knak templates before. They work just fine and provide a decent starting point for more advanced and interesting customization options.
Edit: If you are trying to build just a single template to use, maybe consider hiring a designer for a few hours or someone who can build you a Marketo template easily. If your needs change over time you'd likely need to rehire them but I'd be surprised if you didn't have some internal resources to help you modify HTML email templates.
Thanks, Justin! We already have a template and would like to build something fancier! We had a demo with Knak and I really like the enterprise module.
I can modify HTML email templates as long as it is not complex because I'm not specialist in coding.
Knak is good.
The real question is how many variations do you need and are you able to easily make the Knak templates conform to your brand needs? Knak can customize further for a fee. You can also hire a freelancer or agency to build templates and help maintain them.
Grazitti and Perkuto can also do this.
Hi Josh, we are looking for something which we don't have to depend on partners for further changes...
I will also check Grazitti. Thanks.
Hey Josh - just to clarify your statement - our old 'Template' product it was hard to make material changes to the templates and did require coding. You're correct on that.
However, our Builder and Enterprise products (which have been available for a couple years now) give total freedom and control over their designs and any changes, all with no coding required. We're the only platform in the industry that enables the customers to make unlimited changes, unlimited modules without requiring any coding knowledge.
Email Monks offer very affordable (and quick) customized Marketo modular 2.0 templates (and Landing Pages). Regardless of which service provider you select, make sure you provide all brand guidelines. I've found it best to design internally or hire a creative agency for design and then outsource the template coding.
