You can trust us to handle your email design needs along each phase of the customer lifecycle, from creative strategy to more effective sign up forms to dynamic content templates to transactional messages. Or, you can simply request an email design review and we’ll make sure your own team’s creative complies with W3C standards and current best practices for HTML email.

The Challenges of Effective HTML Rendering

Customers look at your messages using a plethora of different email “viewers.” Folks in our industry call these viewers “email clients,” and whether they are web-based email clients (Gmail, Yahoo!, etc.) or desktop email clients (Outlook, Apple Mail, etc.), they all render your HTML according to their own set of rules. To complicate things further, 26% of online customers surveyed by MarketingSherpa view messages in their email clients’ preview pane and as many as 59% routinely block HTML images.

How do you preserve your brand integrity and improve response rates when facing so many rendering challenges?

One way is to research the unique rendering characteristics of leading email clients, then code your HTML in a way that will “play nicely” with each of them. But keeping up with changes across multiple email clients can be a full-time job. And many times, when online retailers choose this path, they end up with HTML templates that reflect the fact that they took a “lowest common denominator” approach to their email design — the creative looks generic and it doesn’t provide the functionality today’s online customer expects. But it’s a mistake to assume that you need to sacrifice great-looking, user-friendly creative so that your emails will render properly across every top email client.
