Free and easy email (signature) marketing

You are probably already using your email signature to promote your website, and maybe even your social media profiles. But chances are, it could use a little style. It’s not always easy to create a beautiful signature directly inside your email program, and sometimes it’s impossible. That’s why I use WiseStamp. This little online tool makes it easy to create a nice, snazzy-looking email signature that should make whatever you’re promoting a bit more noticeable. This is probably not going to create a huge jump in traffic for your website, but since it’s free and easy, why not? Little things add up, so it’s best to strengthen your branding with every interaction.

WiseStamp is available as an add-on for Firefox, Chrome, and Safari browsers. Personally, I use Google Chrome as my primary browser because it’s the cleanest and fastest. WiseStamp works with Gmail, Hotmail, Yahoo! Mail, and AOL Mail. I’ve been using Gmail for many years, and it works wonderfully with my business email address. You can set it up to receive and reply to business emails without your Gmail address even showing. I’m not sure how this works with other email services, but they might have something similar available too.

The WiseStamp interface is easy to use, and allows you to put in a logo and add your social media profiles. If you need inspiration, they also have a gallery of signature examples as well as a few ready-made templates you can use. You can download and install the add-on from WiseStamp.com in just a few clicks.

I tried a couple of different things before I came up with something I liked. Here a few examples:

And if you want to try something really cool, there are a number of apps you can use in your signature that automatically update as you go! You can show a link to your most recent blog post, upcoming events you’ll be attending, or your latest tweet. Enjoy!
