Brand your Emails, for Free!
In Branding, visibility is everything! Getting your brand seen and recognized is the key to branding anything. In social media and networking, self-branding means that you, as yourself, are the object both being branded and being the brand. The brand must be communicated thoroughly and consistently. We’ll cover more about branding later, but I wanted to pass along an awesome little tip/tool I found recently!
There’s a powerful Firefox Add-on, called WiseStamp This little utility lets you easily make and save HTML email signatures, containing a variety of optional social media links, for use in any web based email.
DemoGirl.com has an excellent Getting Started video of setting up WiseStamp below:
After you install it, and restart Firefox, it will be in the bottom right corner of your browser, like this:
Their FAQ covers a variety of troubleshooting methods as well as some great tips I hadn’t thought about for using this tool! Any of the samples seen on this page can be found free here, as a template to make a similar one. The templates let you get off to a fast start but I had a lot of fun creating my own! (I will say it helps to know a little bit of HTML if you want to do anything fancy without a template.) While it’s unlikely, if like me you were using plain-text email, you will need to set your web email client to use RTF (Rich Text) for this to be auto entered. Thanks to Wisestamp for use of their images, I’m really enjoying this cool little add-on!
