Adding a promotion image in Gmail

Hi everyone,

I am trying to implement a promotional image on Gmail as described in this article here.


This seems to bypass the issues talked about in this thread here


I know that Marketo does not allow JSON code in the email so I am using microdata in the body tags to try an implement this.

Using Litmus' Gmail Promotions Builder tool it gave me this code

(Imagepath is the URL to the image hosted in our Marketo instance)

<div itemscope itemtype="">

  <meta itemprop="name" content="Gmail" />

  <meta itemprop="logo" content="https://imagepath/image.png" />



Yet, when I send an email to my Gmail account, the logo is not showing up. When I check the code in the template I find that Marketo keeps changing the code in the first line to

    <div itemscope="" itemtype="">

Would this be enough to stop the image from rendering? Has anyone had success in implementing this? Any help would be appreciated.
