A well-crafted and visually appealing email can make a big difference to whether people respond to your message. Just learning Dreamweaver, HTML or CSS skills is not enough - what looks good in a web browser often does not work as well in an email. Our course focuses on the skills you need to create HTML emails that produce a consistent result that will look good across a wide variety of email clients and devices. Dreamweaver is used to create the pages, but the skills you learn can be used in any other web design tool. All our Adobe Dreamweaver courses are taught by industry professionals who are also Adobe Certified Professional trainers. They will share years of their industry experience with you, imparting best practice techniques as well mastery of the tools.
