Make Your Next Email Campaign Sizzle with this Free, Fluid Hybrid Template

Email On Acid

Even though summer is coming to an end, that doesn’t mean you can’t have one last sizzling email campaign to round out the season! That’s why we teamed up with Email Templates 999 to bring you a scorching hot, fluid hybrid template that will look fantastic in EVERY inbox.

So what’s the big deal that it’s coded with the fluid hybrid approach? Fluid hybrid design does not rely on media queries to be responsive, meaning your readers no longer have to pinch and zoom when viewing the email in their Gmail App. And, with 75% of Gmail users accessing their accounts on mobile devices, that’s a pretty big deal. Now your readers can focus on your summer savings, instead of quickly tossing your email in the trash because the font is too small on mobile.



Your new template includes:

  • Fluid hybrid design
  • 9 content block variations
  • Hero image option
  • Preheader text area
  • Ready to use with Google Fonts
  • Editable header and footer sections
  • MailChimp version, custom built to work with their toolsets


Need some more insight into why fluid hybrid design? Check out our blog post breaking down this “spongy” design technique!

But wait, you still need to test!

If fluid hybrid design is new to you—and even if it isn’t—make sure to continue to test as you tinker with and customize your new template. A simple tweak in the HTML could cause rendering issues across multiple devices.

Email on Acid even offers a free 7-day trial, which includes unlimited email testing in the most popular inboxes so you can thoroughly test as you integrate this new approach into your emailing efforts.

The pods don't center align after the first break point when i'm viewing in the browser, let alone a test send.

Uploaded the mailchimp version to mailchimp to create a template and only the first and last elements show up when you go to create the email. The entire middle section with all the products disappears.

kriley742,
In MailChimp's editor, you'll need to hover near the bottom of a content section, and hit the + button. This should create a new content block. From here, select "Image left" or "small image left" to create a new product content block. You can add as many of these as you like!
