Why add all your Social Media links to your email-signature?

How many emails do you send each day? Why not use that as an opportunity to increase your Social Media linking! Do all your contacts know your blog, Facebook, Twitter, Lindkedin links? For sure not! An easy way to get linked is to add a personalized Email-Signature to your emails.

How to add the Social Media links to your email-signature?

Most email-programs have a possibility to create your own email-signature. Often thou it’s not so easy to add many small Social Media icons on your signature. Some email-programs do not have so fancy html-code (editing code) possibilities. What to do then?

WiseStamp – what is that?

WiseStamp is a browser add-on. You can create several email-signatures with it with your different Social Media icons and links. It is currently available for Firefox, Chrome and Safari browsers. It is free and you can download it to your computer from this link: http://www.wisestamp.com/

How to use WiseStamp?Create your own WiseStamp signature

Download the WiseStamp Plugin to your computer (using Firefox browser recommended). Find the small WiseStamp sign from your browser (in Firefox in the right-bottom-corner). Click the WiseStamp icon to open the plugin. Create your own business and personal Signatures first by adding a table with two columns (one for the logo and one for the details).

After you have added the Logo and the basic details to your signature it is time to fill in the Social Media details. Start with Social Icons, choose the Social Media one by one (Facebook, Twitter, WordPress, Blogger, Linkedin etc.) and fill in the Link to your Social Media page on each of the Social Media services that you use. Delete all the extra Social Media options from the list.

How to make your Social Media Email-signature

Next step is to add suitable Email Apps. They are RSS feeds from your Social Media sites. For example you can add RSS feed from your latest Blog post to your Signature. This is done by Clicking RSS sign under the Email Apps, then click ADD button and add the RSS feed (blog post feed) to you the link field. Change the RSS Title to something suitable like “Read my latest blog post:”.

From IM Icons you can add your Skype name, Messenger name to your Email Signature. From Design Tab you can add borders and a light Gray box to your Signature. When you are done with your Signature remember to click Apply button and Preview to see how the signature looks like. If you are happy with the design then Click OK.

The last but not the least thing is to go to the Settings. This you do by opening the WiseStamp again from the icon, then choose Settings. Go and un-click the “Keep the WiseStamp credit in the Signature” box. Remember to promote WiseStamp by small donation or by Sharing their link in Facebook. Last click OK!

How do I add the Signature to my emails?

Open a new email message, click your right-mouse-button once and choose “Insert signature” and choose the correct signature by clicking it once. Signature should appear to your email. It is good to do this first before actually writing the email, so that you do not mess the text in your email.

This ofcause means there must be some changes done from time to time. Weekly if possible! Changes, additions do not have to be big ones, as long as there are freqvent. This will enchange your webpage status on google. Google will notice if no changes happen on your webpage.
