600 Free Email Templates for Time-Starved Entrepreneurs

A word from the wise: Free email templates = rabbithole!

That’s right.

While researching for this article, I must have spent more time oohing and aahing over the pretty templates than I actually spent writing.

So, yes, be warned. Browse these links only when you have a cup of something nice and warm or chilled and when you have a sufficient chunk of guilt-free time to enjoy their prettiness.

Seriously though, if you’ve been struggling with creating an email newsletter that looks awesome and showcases your products in the best possible light, you need to go through these links ASAP and find a template that’s perfect for your business.

Why do you need email templates, you ask?

Well, one, because of above stated reason. You want your emails to look pretty and also, showcase what you offer, in a visually appealing way.

Next, you want it to be easy-to-read on a mobile while being easier-to-click through as well.

Having said that, if you want to know which email template we use… our answer is NONE.

Why?

For starters, we don’t sell products, like toys, clothes or beauty stuff, that folks like to look at. Ahem! 😉

Also, when we shifted to ConvertKit, we did away with our earlier template and we’ve noticed that our open and click through rates are way higher than earlier. Sidenote: I’m totally doing a post about why we moved and how we did it soon.

Any way, to come back to the point, as I’d shared in the humongous 50 Free Marketing Ideas post {by the way, you should totally check that out!}, email templates that stand out can make a huge impact on your conversions, especially if you’re in eCommerce and selling products that pack a pretty punch.

So, on that note, here are 600+ Free Email Templates for Budget-Savvy, Bootstrapping Entrepreneurs
