For Free-form landing pages, Marketo already gives you the power to change the Landing Page template, if you use the Clone Tool, then at the bottom, you can change the Template to a new one, unfortunately this isn't the case for the Guided Template. Using Snippets to change your Email Design, gives far more flexibility than using different Email Templates, I had 150 email templates before for different designs, now I'm using Snippets, I have 1 Email Template with 150+ Snippets. If you ever want to decommission a email template (active emails or archive), go to each email and add a comment (<!-- -->) to the top of the template in the replace HTML section (Edit an Email's HTML). It's a lot of work but when you see the power of Snippets as a Template Design tool, you'll never look back. Also look at this trick for collapsing empty mktEditable Sections in case you feel one template doesn't answer all your template problems.
I hope this helps a bit, in the period where Marketo develops the ability to change easily.
It's been mentioned a couple of times before and there's even some ideas floating around somewhere. Take a look and vote for them.
As far as I know it's on Marketo's radar, but they've probably got some bigger fish to fry in the meantime.
Oh My... Some ideas on this are 5 years old:
- Change a template in an existing landing page
- Change template on email or landing page
- Ability to change a Landing Page's Template
- Allow templates to be changed after email created
- Easily swap templates when editing an email
- Swapping out Templates
And I probably missed a few
Absolutely - my question was referring to something I read that was hinting at a release in the not-too-distant future. It looks like it is coming soon.
Should be released soon. Hopefully Q1 of 2016
That is excellent news Jamie!
In some on my recent interactions with MKTO team, there are chances that this would be coming in Q2 update. For Q1, MKTO is focusing more on fixing issues and enhancements for Guided LP templates.
