We are trying to find a mobile-responsive newsletter template to use in Marketo. The ones Marketo has available do not work for our needs in terms of layout and design. I uploaded some HTML templates from outside sources into Marketo, but as you probably can guess, the only way to edit them is through the HTML. I am not an HTML expert enough to navigate the vast code and make changes to get the newsletter to look the way we would like.
Does anyone have any advice on being able to edit a responsive template in Marketo? Thanks in advance.
This is not the way to approach this problem. Responsive email development is a very tricky thing and you should not try to get to the HTML, you will only make things worse (believe my experience on this )
If Marketo email template do not work for you, look to other Marketo compliant templates providers, such as Hoosh or Knak (afew more are available in the Launchpoint).
And if you do not find what you are looking for there, then look for some template developers such as emailmonks.com
Hi Eric Straus
If I understand your request you are looking for fully responsive and editable Newsletter Template which is completely editable and you should be able to reuse/edit it as per your requirement without a developers help.
At Grazitti, we are working with over 50 Marketo customers helping them with similar assets development requirements and day to day Marketo operations needs. Would love to share some samples. Please feel free to reach me on firstname.lastname@example.org and we can discuss this better.
This is exactly the reason that I started Knak. I am a marketer who doesn't know HTML (could barely spell it) and wanted to be able to get my assets out the door without having to rely on an agency or a developer.
