HTML Based Newsletter
on Nov 28, 2007 at 1:11:38 am

I would like to learn how to create an HTML based newsletter that can complement our company's printed newsletter. I have looked on Amazon but all the books seem oriented at direct sales and marketing for obvious reasons. I am more interested in controlling the look of our emails to our clients.

If you're looking for some design tips on what should be in an HTML newsletter there's some good tips here
http://www.sitepoint.com/article/code-html-email-newsletters

-

Some of the basic pointers are
- no javascript
- smaller width than the web site (~700px max wide)
- single column format
- use tables primarily instead of css
- all links need to be absolute
- use same styling as your regular site for familiarity

For an example some of Creative COW's newsletters can be found here
