    Great new feature. I’ve been thinking about switching to HTML emails for that professional look, but many email providers like to strip images or headers from the emails – making my HTML looking disfunctional and unattractive to read. But I’m sure that these new template customizations will help me to stand out from the crowd, and increase my email conversion rates.

    Nice. Thanks for adding new design features to the mix. I tend to go with generic settings for newsletters but I like having access when building sites for others. Aweber is second to none when it comes to email capture, response and sharing content. I would never switch. Thanks for all of the professionalism and hard work that you provide as well.

    Tony – Our templates have a width of 600 px, which is appropriate for mobile. You may want to read up on tips on how to make your emails more mobile friendly and this blog post is a good source for that.

    Crystal:

    I beg to differ. These templates do not look good on mobile.

    Is there no way to create a simple one column template that is graphically pleasing for desktop and mobile devices? I know CSS is tough on mobile, but what about a fluid layout? Would that work?

    Kim- Thank you for your feedback. I think part of the beauty of using our email theme language IS that you have the ability to code your emails any way you’d like. It really gives you the ability to tailor your messages to your individual subscriber base.

    Responsive email design is definitely one option to pursue.

    Hello,

    Can I save the message I created with “previous broadcast editor” to be a template?
    I found that new editor just suck and very limited to have a layout variations.

    Let me know

    Deni – The template saving feature is for the new message editor only. We really believe the new editor is a great solution for businesses marketing with email, so we’re focusing on making that the best tool possible.

    If you don’t like the drag-and-drop interface, you do have the ability to work within the HTML and we now offer extensive resources on our email theme language.

    Crytal, you said, “Our templates have a width of 600 px, which is appropriate for mobile”…
    Is there a way to not specify a width? I’m trying to make a template that won’t scroll left and right on a mobile device. My layout works beautifully, except for the footer that AWeber automatically adds with our address and the Unsubscribe and Change Subscriber Options links.

    Been a long time Aweber user.

    Just want to know if it is possible to use the custom theme templates on blog broadcasts?
