Responsive Email Templates

Hi guys - lots of questions this week.  Still trying to piece it all together!

One thing we are struggling with is we love the Curved Paper email template, but we find it is not readable on Gmail when viewed on a small screen. We've tested it and you can see the whole email in horizontal preview, but it doesn't all show in vertical preview.  Worse, in vertical preview, the sliding bar does not allow you to go to the far side of the email, so you can't view the whole email, at all.

Has anyone else encountered this?  Most of our traffic is on mobile, but a lot of our desktop traffic is on old, small monitors, so this is a problem. We have opted not to use the template, but don't like the looks of the "blank" email in all cases.

Thank you for your ideas!

Thanks, Kenny - I'll give those a try.  Is there any plan to make the curved paper template responsive?  That's the one we'd like to use.

With Hubspot, their interface lets you select different smartphone and tablet sizes, as well as desktop monitors, and see how your email or landing page would look on each of them.  It's very handy.

Hi Jennifer,

I'd encourage you to try out Knak. Knak is a new product we just launched this week at the Summit. It makes creating responsive Marketo templates simple.

You can create the template you've always wanted, in under 5 minutes, and customize it for your brand, with no coding required.

Then you take the code, pop it into Marketo, and use their WYSIWYG editor to do the rest. You'll never have to look at code again.

I'd encourage you to try it out. The first template is free: www.knak.io

Do you need to have HTML experience to customize the templates?

No HTML required. I couldn't write a line of code to save my life.

Re: Responsive Email Templates

Okay, great. So then the template can be easily uploaded into Marketo?

Exactly. And it already has all the Marketo editable regions so you can edit it no problem within the WYSIWYG editor.

I got a demo of Knak from Pierce Ujjainwalla​ at Summit and it was pretty awesome! He created a beautiful looking template in front of me in about three minutes. All clicks, no code.

Definitely worth a try.
