Freebie: Flexible Email Template

So I figured, since you were nice enough to visit my site, I ought to be a decent host and offer you something in return. Please make yourself comfortable and enjoy this free, cross-platform friendly email template:

About the template:

Hot off the press, this template does it all: Desktop, Smartphone, Tablet, iOS,  Android, Gmail, Yahoo, Hotmail, Aol, Outlook ( . . . )

By utilizing flexible grids and flexible images as well as some external media queries this baby can handle any platform you throw at it.

Just be sure to  read the useful comments inside the code for the optimal performance, if you decide to tinker with it on your own.

Assembly Instructions:

Three easy to follow steps and you should be set to go:

  1. Download the template and customize the contents & styling
     Using your favorite HTML editor, you can customize this template as you see fit.
  2. Host the .css stylesheet externally
    Some email clients (such as Yahoo) don’t like media queries and decide to strip them so the .css becomes useless. They can’t strip what they can’t see: so host the .css file on your server and change the stylesheet callout to something like <link href=”http://www.yourdomain/extrnalStyles.css” rel=”stylesheet” type=”text/css” ( . . . )
  3. Import the new template in your email service platform 
    and watch your mobile conversions sky-rocket.

That’s all there is to it.
