In the context of marketing, an email header (also called email header image or email banner) is the visual that is located at the top of your email. Email headers introduce you or your brand and business to the reader and set the tone for your message. Email headers also provide the context for the main body of the email.

Email headers are created for different types of newsletters and email campaigns, including:

  • Welcome emails
  • Product update emails
  • Promotional campaign emails
  • Blog content emails, newsletters
  • Seasonal campaign emails

Why you need email headers
