Knak started with a simple idea:

Let's make life easier for marketers.

Now hundreds of the world's top brands and tens of thousands of marketers rely on Knak, and we're defining what it means to be an email creation platform.

Built by marketers, designed for everyone.

We were marketers before we were email experts, so we know what teams are looking for.

We think anyone should be able to create beautiful, on-brand emails, and they shouldn't have to know HTML to do it. So, we built a world-class enterprise email creation platform and then made it even better with our laser-focus on customer service.

The Knak Team

(AKA Our Secret Weapon)

Emails Built

Sending Platforms Supported

We're on a mission to change the way emails are created.

Our module-based platform and drag & drop builder make email creation simple, so great design is no longer exclusive to the marketing department.

Knak handles the details so teams - and we mean any team, from any department - can build on-brand emails quickly and get them to market faster.
