How can I upload the template to MailChimp?
Just follow these easy steps:
- In MailChimp, just go to “Templates” and click “Create Template”.
- Select “Code You Own”, and choose “Import Zip”.
- Give your template a name, and click “Browse” to select from your computer the .zip file you have just received – templatename.zip (a quick heads up here… select not the entire .zip file you have downloaded, but the templatename.zip file that is inside the big .zip file). Note that you can also drag and drop the .zip file to this screen.
- Click “Upload”. In the next screen, you will see a preview of the template (both Design and Code views). Just click “Save and Exit”, in the bottom right part of the screen.
You have successfully uploaded the template to MailChimp. You can find it in your “Templates” section. You can check this video also.

Why download email templates in Newslettercircus.com?
You’re probably wondering why to download email templates in Newslettercircus.com. There are many other sites where it is possible to download free MailChimp email templates, or even buy some professional email templates (surely you know Themeforest).
However, there is a clear number of advantages that make Newslettercircus.com a great option to download free premium email templates. We offer you up to 5 different reasons to download Newslettercircus.com email templates.
1) They are specifically designed for MailChimp
In the rest of the sites you will find templates that you can use in MailChimp, Campaign Monitor, Constant Contact, MailRelay… all of them…
But how many email marketing tools are you using? Just one!
Why do you want a template that you can use in different services if you are going to use it in only one of them? This flexibility is just adding unnecessary files to your download and only complicate your job.
In Newslettercircus.com every template is designed and prepared specifically for a unique and specific email marketing tool. And that is why they are free and simpler than anywhere else, which leads us to the second and third points.
2) Are cheaper than at any other site: they are FREE
Our idea is to make simple templates that can be used in MailChimp, the leading email marketing tool and easily customizable.
We are continually simplifying everything possible to provide the best free professional email templates option all over the Internet.
We are not including extra options you don’t need (versions for other platforms, PSD files, access to complex builders, etc.) and that makes it possible that we can offer you the best free templates in the market.
3) They are very easy to use
The main objective of our templates is that you can install them in MailChimp in less than a minute. The learning curve is incredibly small.
Our system of drag & drop blocks makes it possible to easily edit texts, change images, duplicate blocks of content, reorganize them, etc. using MailChimp’s usual campaign creator tool, with which you are no doubt familiar.
Also, we have noted that in other templates it is not possible to duplicate blocks or rearrange them and know HTML is required to do so.
Our commitment is that you can install the template and start working in less than a minute, without any HTML skills, or having to learn how to use an additional external builder.
4) They have a professional and nice design, are 100% customizable, and have been tested on mobile devices
We are not satisfied with simply making free and easy to use email marketing templates for MailChimp. We also note that the image is very important for your project, and we strive to achieve a top aesthetic.
We make templates that take into account multiple cases and prepare templates with various blocks (you can see lots of examples here). We understand that you have specific communication needs and we try to create complete templates (multiple images, different content organization, etc.)
5) We provide a lot of helpful content
When you download a free template nobody helps you with the setup and customization, right? That is the key to free templates: is possible to access them easily, but when you start with one of them, you are completely alone. And that’s one of the reasons why these email marketing templates are free… On the other hand, we are continuously preparing videos and tutorials, that will allow you to make the most of Newslettercircus.com email marketing templates.
