Third Party Email Template Providers

Hi all,

I'm looking at refreshing our branded email templates as they are a few years old now. I'd like to get these designs refreshed to match our new website as well as add in some new email modules for different content. 

Does anyone have any recommendations for third party email template providers that are able to support within the Marketo environment with module elements and can work to a design specific brief?

 

Any suggestions would be appreciated! Thanks.

I have worked with Uplers (before Email Monks) and so far they haven`t disappointed me. Good price/performance.

 

Just you need to be very clear with your design and specify exactly what you want within amodule, what is desired behavior etc.

We use Stripo for building responsive email templates for mobile and desktop. They then have a feature to export the HTML code, which we import into Marketo to add in email variables

Hi Tyron,

 

I am in the processing to testing Stripo and have setup the export directly into Marketo. I noticed that is exports the email as a template instead of email to use in a program. Is there a way to export is an email or is it only as a template and then you need to create the email in Marketo based on the template? My other question is regarding the Marketo tracking of links? So far I've only been able to see that it doesn't automatically add the Marketo tracking. Is that possible to do or would it be a manual process. Thanks in advance for any feedback you can provide.

Hi Randy,

 

Q1. You can only import the HTML as a template in Marketo and then you can create emails from this template

Q2. Nothing should need to be done in the template to get tracking to be enabled. If you have a link in the template and you then create an email from this template if you click on this link in the email editor then you should see the tracking checkboxes checked by default
