How to Create and Send HTML Email Template in Gmail?4 minutes read

Unfortunately, Gmail does not provide a feature to create HTML email templates. Many professionals or Individuals want to send HTML based mass emails or newsletters in Gmail.

The good news is that you can create HTML templates in SalesHandy and use them in your Gmail/G Suite account by adding SalesHandy’s Chrome extension. 

If you are looking for a way to create an HTML email template in Gmail then you have come to the right place.

Why should you send an email newsletter using Gmail if you have a limited number of recipients?

You can easily create and send a newsletter using software like MailChimp or GetResponse, but almost all the time, emails will land in the Promotions tab instead of primary inbox. It is because this software uses personal servers to send emails. 

If you send the same newsletter email from your Gmail/ G Suite account, your emails will hit recipients’ inbox because all the emails will be sent from Google’s servers.

But, if you have a list of 10k recipients or more, then you can not send newsletter email to all the recipients in one day because Google has provided certain daily email sending limit for Gmail and G Suite users.

For Gmail users, daily email sending limit is 500 recipients and 2000 recipients if you have G Suite account.
