2 New HTML Email Templates

Ever wish your email template could match your blog?

At AWeber, you can use any of our 100+ HTML email templates to create great-looking emails in a variety of color schemes – but what if you could match the look of your email marketing campaigns perfectly to your website?

To help make this happen, and have some fun in the process, I’ve created a couple HTML email templates based on some free WordPress themes that you can download and use for your blog.

Check them out…

“Outdoorsy” HTML Email Template

The “Outdoorsy” template is based on the free Outdoorsy WordPress Theme from Function.

It’s a 2-column (right-hand sidebar) email template with an organic feel and navigation links available to use in the header.

If you want, you can download and use this template outside of AWeber – but if you want to use it in AWeber, it’s already integrated for you! When you’re creating an email, just choose “Outdoorsy” from the list of templates.

“SuperFresh” HTML Email Template

The “SuperFresh” template is designed to match the free SuperFresh WordPress Theme from ThemeTation.

It includes a “featured post” section at the top, and then a 2-column area (content and sidebar) beneath.

If you want, you can download and use this template outside of AWeber – but if you want to use it in AWeber, it’s already integrated for you! When you’re creating an email, just choose “SuperFresh” from the list of templates.

Enjoy – And Tell Us How You’re Using the Templates!

If you use these templates and themes for your campaigns and site, let us know!

You should also try out the other templates in our email templates gallery.

And if you have ideas for other HTML email templates, I’m all ears :)

  3. WordPress options aside, would I be able to recreate the look of my Typepad blog using other Aweber options/templates?

    Thanks.

  4. These are great templates, but more importantly you touch upon something I have wanted to do for a while, which is to create an Aweber email HTML template so my newsletter can match my custom WordPress template (based on Whitespace).

    Any advice or resources on the process you followed so we can create our own?

    Thanks

    @ Matthew and Luci

    HTML email can be somewhat tricky to code. If you are familiar with html here are a few tips off the top of my head:
    - I tend to create my templates at 600px wide
    - Use nested tables to accomplish all your positioning
    - Use CSS very sparingly and when you do use it, use inline styles
    - Make sure to code your template in a way that still looks good with images disabled (since thats most likely what people will see initially)

    Here is a link to an article I wrote with more coding tips:
    6 Ways To Improve Your HTML Emails

    If you are looking to make a custom template to go hand in hand with your blog and aren’t too familiar with HTML, I’d suggest hiring a web designer. When looking for a web designer specifically let them know you’re interested in having them make you an html email template. Make sure when they deliver the template you personally test it in all the major email clients (gmail, yahoo, hotmail, outlook, etc…). The way someone would code a webpage is very different from the style you would code an html email. It is definitely a niche of its own.

    Best of luck!!!

  8. This is awesome… great work guys (as always).

    9/16/2009 1:31 pm
  9. This is a wonderful idea and thank you for sharing it with us. I will be using them soon and hope you plan to add more.

  10. How do you use one of these templates? I unzipped it, but it has no extension?

    I tried to open it with Dreamweaver, but not sure how? Help?

    9/16/2009 3:10 pm
  11. Jerry,

    Inside the .zip file there’s an index.html file. You should be able to open that file in any editor, including Dreamweaver. Not sure what would be causing an issue there.

  12. I wonder if AWEBER has a simple to use html tempate for our fellow newbies… something easy to edit and implement in html campaigns…

    I for e.g. never used a plain html template loaded with graphics.

    And would love to start using one, but find coding complex… lol

    Although I’ve been using html boldings , images and stuff like that.

  13. I’ve always stuck to plain text emails because in a lot of email programs, people have to actually click a link to view images in the browser. Would this result in lower conversion rates? I’m itching to use the templates though because they look so good!

    9/16/2009 5:24 pm
  14. Wow, i never think of my theme can become an email template! :)

    Anyway, great work here :)

    BTW, I am looking for a newsletter service to blast emails to all my customers. However, I am not familiar with Email. I did create the newsletter template by myself.

    My question is how easy is it to modify the newsletter content every time I want to send out? Can I upload my own template?

    9/16/2009 9:37 pm
  15. I must be missing something. When I unzip the downloaded file. I get a single file with the same name and no extension. Where is the index.html file?

    9/17/2009 2:47 am
  16. …any place to see all the templates,so that we can say the better.

  20. Hello folks….
    I think an e-mail that matches blog or biz site is a great idea!
    My blog at http://www.nopalcactusblog.com/ uses the
    Atahualpa WP Theme by BytesForAll ….
    Could you do something with that?

    You can see what I did with it here:

  25. Wow, some more great tips and features at Aweber. These templates look terrific. Will you be offering any that have some of the common blogger themes too?

  26. Do subscribers have to signup for html email format?

    10/15/2009 6:48 pm
  27. hola should put more templates to download, I like, thanks.

    Thanks for giving these templates away for free. The files are really clean, whoever designed/developed these gets major props for the compatibility. I ran these babies through pivotal veracity and came up with almost no inconsistencies.

  29. Can I load a custom template into the broadcast feature or into the email templates? If yes then how do I do this?

    If no then am I limited by your templates? When will you have more inspirational / uplifting templates? we need more insipraional / creative and artsy templates.

    6/4/2010 4:03 am
  30. MaryJo ~ You can certainly load a custom template by copying your HTML directly into the message editor. Make sure to select the "source" tab at the bottom first.

    We’re always creating more templates, so if you have specific ideas, let us know and we’ll take them into consideration!

    Wow Fantastic. These html templates are very awesome. Thanks for sharing this great work.

    Great templates. I don’t see why everyone doesn’t do PSD to html. It’s clearly the most beautiful way to craft a website. PSD will one day rule the world.

  33. Outdoorsy is a nice and owesum template…thanks for adding that in your collection..

    I tried to adapt the TWENTY template theme,which emulated the client’s blog that I built to run promos. However, this theme, TWENTY, has a very unprofessional error encased it it’s nasty swindling nature. When you install a link into the black sidebar, with a white text that reads Link to This, the text turns DARK BLUE ON A BLACK BACKGROUND AND IS VIRTUALLY INVISIBLE. Huge mistake. Take it down of fix it. I’m tired of wasting MY time to fix someone else’s mistakes. Help said I can fix CSS but offered no ways for me to do it. So I wait…once again, for help.

    3/8/2014 4:27 pm
  35. Hi Bob. Thanks for your comment. To ensure your link text is white, first you’ll link the text, which will turn it blue by default. Then you’ll highlight the text and change it back to white. Give that a try and let us know if you’re still seeing this issue.

  36. Hi there, I log on to your blog like every week. Your humoristic style is witty, keep doing what you’re doing!
