Easy Email Signatures: From Fizzle to Fancy Pants

email signature
What does your email say about you?

Email signatures are often overlooked but WiseStamp.com makes it super easy to make your emails look polished and professional. WiseStamp works with several email providers and puts a handy little button right on your email toolbar, so you can make several different signatures and use them in different situations.

It's quick and it's free :)

I'll show you how I updated my email signature and some of the features I use.

This was my old email sig:

email signature branded

But I decided I wanted to update it to match the rest of my branding. 

First I added a new signature graphic. Choose the image icon on the toolbar.


use wisestamp email signature

Now you can upload your image from your computer or from your website if you know the image url. My image is 250 pixels wide. 

add logo to email signature

Now that my image is added, I wanted to update the text I have entered below the image. Type in your text and highlight it. 




First I made the text link to the url of my newsletter sign up. Click the link icon:


And enter in the url you want your text to point to.  I always opt to have the link open in a new window.


Then I change the color of the text to match my branding. Choose the A icon on the toolbar.



You'll see a drop down of set colors to pick from or the option to choose from more colors. I added the HEX # of a color that matches my logo and entered it at the bottom and hit Apply.



If you look below the area where you customize your signature, you'll see three tabs. Email Apps, Social Icons, & IM Icons. 

Email Apps is where you can add your latest tweets, Facebook posts, shop listings, and more. The only one I use is the LinkedIn App to add the connect button.



IM Icons is where you can add your Skype, Google Talk, Messenger and other IM urls. I don't use any of these in my signature.

Social Icons is where you add in the urls of your social media profiles. This is the jackpot... I use as many of these as I can.


Once you enter in the urls for all of your icons, hit Preview in the lower left corner and see how it looks.


If it all looks good, close that window and hit Apply!

Now run email someone and test your new signature :)

I hope this tutorial helped you! If you liked it, please share it with your friends.

  19. Posting pictures of the product, daily occurrences, quotes, along
    with other visual media can greatly solidify your brand.

    Brands will need to understand what it takes to do visual marketing
    well, whether within their current communities or new networks like Pinterest,
    Instagram, and others. Here are three simple guidelines to follow to make sure you're not "one of those moms" overdoing the baby photos on Facebook:1) Be Selective - Don't upload 47 pictures of your baby over a 30 second timespan.

    According to News Channel 9, "After the emails went out, the questions came quickly from users: was it a scam, and why do Instagram and Facebook need that information. But when the big boys came to town, like JP Morgan Chase or Wells Fargo, I wore a suit and made sure my tattoos were covered as much as possible. It gives you a limit of only sharing with 50 friends and plans are in the works to decrease that number.

  23. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle and wearing
    supportive garments enable you to feel your best, which in
    turn allows you to provide your baby with a healthy environment in which to grow.
    Normally, the first day of the final menstrual interval commences the 9 months length of pregnancy.
    Mood Swings - Ok, so if the nausea and breast tenderness
    weren't enough to make you edgy - your moods can start to change dramatically even in the first weeks of pregnancy. First of all, your body is completely different when you are pregnant; you have raging hormones running all through your body, and a lot of other things going on. Education is key, so let me share what I have learned through two nasty bouts of HG. The thought alone sends shivers down the spine to so many women whenever the subject is raised.

  25. I have formatted it to all look good with comms type icons, the design of it is really important I think as many design orientated people will judge you on such things as your email layout and signature. I also put my signature in a light grey to distinguish it from the text but not for it to be inyour face too much.
