Here are some methods that will help you to create successful emailers which are responsive to support multiple supporting multiple devices and resolutions with different email clients :
- The width of the emailer should not exceed 600px.
- For creating responsive designs it should be created in a row format.
- If you require complete support, non outlook and major email clients do not use an image as a background.
- It’s good to have a separation between the images and text.
- The width of the block for the image and the content can be of full width or a balance of 50%-50% or 30%-70%.
- Try to use fewer amounts of graphics.
- For an ideal fit the font size should not be greater than 35px.
- Google fonts are the only one that are taken into consideration and those will only be loaded if and only if the user allows external files to load in their device.
- Use web safe fonts.
- Some clients may show some features especially border-radius.
- The height of the images should not exceed 1735px otherwise it will be truncated in email clients like outlook.
- A maximum of 4 blocks can be expected in good design.
- Content and image should be separately treated and handled i.e. no inline image and text except for some bullet points or icons.
- The design should be centrally aligned on mobile.
- It will be tested on outlook and as a hack outlook will not take 5% of right hand design into consideration so there might be non-symmetry in the last 5%.
- There are only tables in emailer so a designed border will not work i.e. a graphic border won’t work for responsive emailers.
- Try to be specific with your content.
- The content provider will have to concentrate upon content and image balance or result will be spam.
- If read-more button is on image then that complete image will be clickable.
- Focus should be on visibility of content and call of action (Graphics will be second priority).
- There is no external CSS or JS in emailers.
- Call of action should be centrally located.
- Video is not recommended.
