Responsive HTML Email

Optimize Your Email for the Mobile Market

Mobile email is in the lead, surpassing webmail and desktop client usage by a large margin.

Make Responsive Emails

Build Responsive Emails

In this class you’ll learn best practices for executing a responsive email design that will ensure an excellent user experience for desktop, webmail, and mobile users.

We’ll show you how easy it is to set up a single-column email with a fluid layout that will work across devices and email clients. We’ll also show you how to create a more complex newsletter that, with the help of media queries, will go from a 2-column layout to a single column on most mobile devices.

This advanced level course is designed for people who are already familiar with web development and have prior experience coding HTML email. If you have some experience with HTML and CSS but have never coded an HTML email before, we recommend you take our HTML Email course to learn the basics before you take this class.
