With Marsello's Email campaign template library, creating email content is easier than ever before. Choose from a range of basic and themed email campaign templates, or create and save your own.


Types of email campaign templates

Basic templates

These basic templates offer a range of different layouts and are fully customizable to your store's brand.

Themed templates

These themed templates have everything ready to go and have been prepared by professional designers. They offer a range of layouts with simple color palettes, image examples, and fonts.

All you need to do is to add your logo, contact details, and content.

Custom templates

Create your own email templates from scratch. Choose the layout, design, and basic content to help you standardize the email campaigns sent from your store.

πŸ’‘Quick Tip: You can also save your email template during the campaign email editor by clicking Save as template in the drop-down options next to the "create campaign" button. This will save the email template using your Subject Line as the template name.


Using email campaign templates

There are two ways you can use these pre-designed email templates:

  • using a template from the Campaigns creation process

  • using a template from the Template library

Create and customize your own email template

  • Columns block

  • Button block

  • Divider block

  • Text block – Personalize your email content and include merge tags such as first name, loyalty points, VIP tier, and unique referral program link.

This will send a test of your email campaign to your email address.
