A Template is like your mailing's stationery or letterhead. It ensures your mailings are sent with a consistent, properly-branded look that renders well on different email programs and devices. Additionally, because a Template is reusable, each Template will greatly improve your efficiency when creating new mailings.
While there are lots of things that a non-designer can accomplish when working with a Template in the Higher Logic Thrive Marketing Professional editor, having a designer create your Templates is recommended. Be sure that your designer understands that the HTML used for an email template can behave differently than the HTML used for a website. Create a case if you have any questions about the HTML in your Template.
