With Christmas 2019 just around the corner, businesses in Australia should already be working on their holiday campaigns.
While shopping malls can expect plenty of foot traffic over the next few months, more and more Australians are doing their shopping online. By the end of this year, the number of Aussies using the web to buy products will reach 20.3 million, up more than 5% since last year.
If you want to take advantage of the online shopping trends, a smart email campaign can inform your audience about the discounts, deals, and products you are putting forward this silly season.
But where to start? We’ve got you covered. Here are four websites where you can find FREE Christmas email templates to get the (snow)ball rolling:
1. Stripo.Email Christmas Templates.
Although Stripo.Email does have paid plans, their basic plan allows you to download two templates a month at no cost. It also grants you access to their extensive library of beautiful templates, including many interactive Christmas email campaigns.
Stripo’s templates integrate with the majority of the email marketing platforms out there, or you can simply download the template as an HTML5 file and upload it yourself.
2. Canva’s Christmas Newsletter Templates.
Canva is one of the best programmes for busy marketers who need a quick and simple way to create stunning visual content—including email campaigns. They have hundreds and hundreds of templates for all types of designs, including some really beautiful Christmas newsletter templates.
With a free account, you can browse through their newsletter templates, replacing the fonts, colours, and graphics with your own. If you want to purchase additional graphics, Canva offers icons, images, and designs for around $1 each.
3. Mailchimp’s Holiday Email Templates.
Mailchimp is one of the most popular email marketing services out there, and if you’re using them to send your campaigns, you’re in luck—they’ve already built a number of Christmas email templates to get you started.
Unfortunately, the templates are only for Standard and Premium accounts, so if you’re using the free version of Mailchimp, some of the other options on this list might be a better choice.
4. EmailMonk’s Free Downloadable Templates.
EmailMonk offers fully customisable Christmas email templates, and they are completely free to download. Just visit this page and enter your email address to have them sent to your inbox.
These beautiful templates integrate fully with services like MailChimp, and they also include enticing features to help you boost sales, like animated .Gifs and gorgeous, high-quality photos.
No matter which design you choose, it’s important to tailor the template to your audience.
