Adding your logo to your email signature is a fun way to keep your email communication branded. It helps creates brand awareness and recognition and is so easy to do.
Gmail used to provide an option for you to simply add your logo to your signature by uploading your logo image. Depending on what browser you use, this may still be an option, but I’ve noticed Chrome (which I usually use) only allows a URL upload for email signature images.
This frustrated me because I wasn't sure where I could upload my logo and create a link from it (aside from unreliable PhotoBucket). So when I discovered the links option in Squarespace I was relieved and am hoping this quick video tutorial will help answer any questions you may have about how to add your logo to your Gmail email signature. you The steps are also listed below in case you prefer to read directions instead of watch. :)
What you need:
- Squarespace Account
- Gmail Account
- Your Logo in JPEG or PNG Format
1 • Login to Squarespace
2 • Navigate to the Pages section
3 • In the "Not Linked" section, click on the + (plus) sign
4 • Choose link
5 • Title your link (I used Delighted Creative Co Logo)
6 • Click “Click to add URL”
7 • Upload file (PNG or JPEG)
8 • Copy link (Command + C)
9 • Paste link to a sticky (Command + V)
10 • Copy your Squarespace website URL (up to .com)
11 • Paste on your sticky note in front of the link you just added
12 • Copy the full URL from your sticky note
13 • Go to Gmail settings
14 • On the general settings page, navigate to the email signature section
15 • Choose “Insert Image” icon
16 • Paste URL
17 • Resize as needed
18 • Save
And that’s it!
I hope this was helpful...let me know if you have any questions!
