What do you mean by a free drag-and-drop email template builder?
The Crewativity Drag & Drop Email Builder is a 100% FREE drag-and-drop email template builder. It does not cost you anything now and it won’t cost you anything in the future (and you can use it for an unlimited number of times!). Easy as that. But wait, there’s more!
It has all the capabilities that a strapping young team of small business owners or a startup’s marketing team needs - draggable objects, the ability to save your templates for the next time you use them, and you can also export your HTML into any program!
In layman's terms: It is a free program that lives in your browser and lets you drag bits here, there, and everywhere to build the exact email you had in your mind but didn’t have the coding skills or resources to build on your own. To make things even easier, if you do have a friend that knows HTML and you’ve managed to convince them to help you out, you can export your design to HTML and have them whip up the changes you were looking for in no time.
Who made it?
The Crewativity Drag & Drop Email Builder was built by CodeCrew and BigBangThemes. Together we put all our energy into this builder and sincerely hope that it will result in great success for all its users.
But why offer access to a completely free email template builder?
Why is it free? I bet many of you are still waiting for the catch, for that one thing to turn this from a completely free newsletter builder into a SAAS, an opportunity to get your email address on a list or to get you on a call - but it’s not. There is no catch.
One of the most important things for us here at CodeCrew is being able to give back to the community which has helped us grow in such a remarkable way. The rules to using the free newsletter builder are extremely simple and straightforward: help us spread the word about our amazing free tool by sharing the news with your Facebook and/or Twitter friends, and you'll be able to build free email template designs and export them for an unlimited number of times, forever.
There’s no better way of feeling proud of the countless hours of blood, sweat, and tears than sharing your pride and joy with the world. Our clients help support us, and in turn, we can help support those who can’t quite justify hiring an email marketing agency just yet. Just remember to reach out to the CodeCrew team when you’re ready to hire a dedicated team of experts one day.
Is the HTML email builder tool something that your awesome startup e-commerce will be able to use to scale up to more than $2 million/year in revenue? Probably not - but it’s the perfect tool to help you get over that first million.
Built mainly for teams of up to 4 people that need to wear a million different hats every day, the builder is guaranteed to help you massively increase your email marketing-related profits. As with most profit optimization processes, the first step is cutting costs, and what better way exists than ensuring that you get an awesome tool for absolutely zero cost? And, to top that off, you can cut down on your development and design costs since you can just pass this over to a designer or your marketing manager and they can use it to export highly optimized email HTML code that plugs right into your favorite ESP.
"Success in life is making the most number of people's lives better". It helps us feel a sense of purpose, and that's what we're trying to do here at CodeCrew. The 'free forever' program is our way of giving back to the community which has helped us achieve so much in so little time.@ CodeCrew
How to use it?
Well, this is a bit of a “good news, bad news” situation. The good news is that this is a completely FREE email template builder that you can use as you see fit. There’s also a pretty good knowledge base where you can find a whole bunch of amazing info on how to use the builder: what works, what doesn’t, how to export free responsive email templates, and even what to do if you need Salesforce email templates and want the export to work with that.
The bad news is that with this being free there isn’t a support team, so you’re kinda on your own with this. But, thankfully, it’s super easy to use!
The documentation is pretty thorough too - so there’s seriously nothing to worry about when building your email HTML out. Make sure to take it easy, and if you absolutely need help, holler on Twitter. There’s a pretty hefty community of users that have been using our builder for the last few years, so somebody out there should be able to give you a helping hand.
Now let’s have a look at what you can do with this awesome newsletter builder, along with some of its key features:
MailChimp, Campaign Monitor, and Klaviyo friendly.
We picked these because they seem to be the favorites when it comes to startups trying to keep costs as low as possible. After extensive market research, we’ve concluded that these are the most used tools in the first year of a company’s email marketing efforts. As you scale, you’ll probably turn to some email marketing experts (like CodeCrew) and the email builder will become a thing of the past. That said - you can export HTML code that will work with any other ESP out there.
Drag & Drop ability
We know how hard it can be for someone with little technical ability to find their way in this crazy online world where yesterday’s breaking news is tomorrow’s deprecated - so we figured that nothing’s easier than dragging and dropping your favorite modules into the canvas.
The modules are categorized where needed. We’re also making sure you know exactly how to use those builder elements. Simplicity is key to a great design, and this is no different.
Save, undo and redo
You can save, undo and redo your steps. We recommend saving it more often than not to avoid frustration down the line.
Preview your responsive email templates
With over 70% of users opening their emails on mobile devices, this feature is not a ‘nice-to-have’, it’s an absolute necessity!
Bullet-proof Outlook background images
The background images are made bulletproof on auto-mode when exporting. So they’ll display properly on all devices - guaranteed!
Thanks to some Python coding you can now generate your favorite icons. Have fun!
Who is it good for?
Well - are you a vibrant e-commerce business that’s doing over $1 million/year? Then this is probably NOT for you. You better contact the CodeCrew team, there’s so much more than this that you can do, and we know exactly how you can tap into that potential.
Although the ease-of-use and low cost/benefit ratio of a drag-and-drop builder is one of the best tools to have when starting out, the only real way to skyrocket your ROI is by using the knowledge of long-time email marketing experts to craft a specialized program with custom designs/code.
But, if you’re still working a full-time job while doing your best to get your side business off the ground? Then this builder was made for you.
Anyone who is starting in business should have a strong pulse on their marketing, and email, being the absolute highest earner with the best ROI, is a must for any savvy marketer or small business owner out there.
Can universities and government institutions use it?
We get a lot of emails from teachers and students asking us if this is something that can be used as a resource for teaching how to code responsive templates, how to design emails, or just how to make sure you get a rocking job at an email marketing agency. Our reply is simple: YES!
Know a university that isn’t using this yet but could benefit from doing so? By all means - let us know! We can hook you up with even more access, goodies, and an awesome way of using this without having to even worry about sharing it on Social. We’re all about supporting the future marketers out there and making sure that whoever gets into the field next really knows their stuff.
Are you from NASA and need to ensure that your next rocket launch is accompanied by an equally amazing email launch? Or from the IRS and want to warn people about the risks of not paying their taxes? Then this is the tool for you!
If you find a local dot-gov domain that should list this tool on their site so that the local community can get some help and use this to boost their profits, by all means, drop us a message and we’ll get on the phone right away. We’ve already been vetted by several other dot-gov websites.
