Marketo email templates are pre-designed emails that serve as a starting point for creating individual emails. Templates are used to ensure that marketers stay on brand when creating assets for campaigns or lead nurturing programs. Marketo templates will have “editable” regions and areas that cannot be edited.
With Knak, Marketo email templates are built as pure HTML documents. These HTML templates can be directly input into the Marketo Email Editor where users can make specific customizations to the content within the template.
Setting up Marketo templates helps marketers stay on brand while maximizing their ability to exercise creative freedom in content creation. Some email elements, such as the logo or layout, will be “locked down” while other elements, like content areas for text and images can be edited freely.
Marketo Landing Page Templates
Knak allows users to design landing page templates that can be used and reused in Marketo. The pre-designed layouts allow for control over important elements such as color, logo, layout, and fonts, while giving Marketo users the ability to edit content and images to create unique pages.
Marketo landing page templates help you scale your programs and campaigns while maintaining the quality of your users' experience. Elements like analytics and responsive design can be handled at the template stage so that when marketers begin content creation, they can focus on being creative.
Landing page templates can be imported from Knak instantly and edited with Marketo’s Design Studio. Once in Marketo, you can modify anything on a page that is marked as an editable region including images, text, links, and forms.

Best Practices for Designing Marketo Email Templates
Select web safe fonts to ensure your email recipients will always see the design you want them to see. Global fonts—available in Knak—allow you to define a font at the brand level which you can then build with by using the ‘Inherit font’ in the font selection menu.
Too many images, or image files that are too large, can add a lot of weight to your email, which negatively impacts the email’s deliverability. We suggest you keep the total file sizes of all images contained within your Marketo email to under 1MB.
- Image Alt Tags:
Not everyone will be able to view images in your email - it is not uncommon for recipients to have images blocked by default. To ensure users can still understand the message of the email, with or without the inclusion of images, be intentional and purposeful with where these images appear and be sure to use descriptive alt text.
- Image Dimensions:
For optimal rendering, we suggest you use an image with a width that is twice as wide as the content block you’re putting it in. As well, a good rule of thumb is to have a PPI (pixels per inch) value of 72 or higher for email images.
- Email File Size:
The smaller the file size, the better. Emails with a ton of data will often see deliverability issues. For example, Gmail clips the end of any emails that are larger than 102kb. In order to keep your file size to a minimum, we recommend keeping the number of new sections you use in a Marketo <> Knak email to a minimum, only starting a new row if you need a different column layout.
- Padding Consistency:
Use the same padding on each side of an element to ensure it looks good on all devices. Keep in mind that uneven padding can look wonky when elements are stacked on mobile, so make use of the desktop vs mobile padding option in the Knak editor.
It goes without saying that your emails should always have an unsubscribe link which works and is easy to find. Beyond that, consider adding in links to ‘forward to a friend’ and ‘view as webpage’ as well, since an email that is forwarded via an email client’s forward button is not guaranteed to render well.
Make use of Modules! If you have a specific layout (alignment, padding, spacing, etc.) that you’d like to use over and over again, a good option is to build out one module and then clone it to create additional modules. That way your layout will remain the same.
Ensure the colours you are using work well for all visual abilities. Make sure text and other elements will still be visible for individuals with color blindness, or for those with other visual impairments. Keep in mind that some email recipients may be viewing emails in Dark Mode, so it is also important to test out how colouring is impacted by Dark Mode on any device or email client.
After building your email in Knak, you can sync the asset directly into your desired Marketo program. To do this, go to the Publish dropdown in the asset’s editor, press Sync, and select the the Marketo Program you want to sync to.

Best Practices for Designing Marketo Landing Page Templates
When building a landing page, prioritize the desired action you want your prospect to take. Place the Call-To-Action (CTA) front and center, drawing immediate attention. To maximize impact, restrict the page to only one CTA, keeping the focus sharp and avoiding distractions.
Consider limiting the number of form fields on your landing page to fewer than 7. Wherever possible, we actually recommend aiming even lower: As much as we want to get as many details from the prospect, we need to ensure that the form is simple enough for them to fill out. By streamlining the form and only asking for essential information, you enhance the chances of encouraging prospects to take action and boost overall conversion rates.
While small footers are a good call, we suggest minimizing the use of navigational elements on your landing page. Navigational elements distract users from the ultimate conversion goal of your page; a landing page will work best if it stands alone.
Ensure the messaging from your email, post, or ad directly carries over into your landing page.
Over 50% of website traffic is now from mobile devices, so it is critical to design landing pages that inspire action for both mobile and desktop users (Exploding Topics). Knak’s landing page builder allows marketers to adjust elements, down to the pixel, for different screen sizes and allows you to test responsiveness in real time.
Colour adds character and life into a design. However, think of it from an accessibility perspective. Accessibility in design means being able to create something that can be enjoyed and experienced by the widest range of viewers, and sometimes, contrasting colours prevent this from happening.
- Load Time:
Ensure that your page loads quickly. Slow lead time results in lower sales. Avoid weighing down your landing page with unnecessary elements that can slow it down. Ensure that the page is optimized. Tip: you can use the Optimize tab in Knak to see if your page is in optimal setting.
After building your landing page in Knak, you can sync the asset directly into your desired Marketo program. To do this, go to the Publish dropdown in the asset’s editor, press Sync, and select the the Marketo Program you want to sync to.
